A genre that changed the world of metal forever, nu-metal had a firm 10-year grasp on music from around 1994 until 2004, and essentially defined a large chunk of pop-culture.

Combining elements of metal, electronica, funk and hip-hop, nu-metal was forever innovative and hard to nail down sonically as it was all about breaking the rules in favor of self-expression. From nu-metal’s rebellion, we welcomed into our homes legendary acts such as Slipknot, Korn and System of a Down, who all still continue to keep the spirit of the genre alive well into the 21st Century.
