The Seven Lamest Nu Metal Bands of All Time

Categories: Bands We Hate

1. Lil Wayne

Surprise! Lil Tunechi takes the cake here. Appearing in Limp Bizkit's "Ready to Go," Weezy F Baby tops our list and only makes it evident that he is officially out of touch and complete garbage. All the other bands started making this shitty music in the '90s and early '00s when it was supposedly acceptable. What is Weezy's excuse for cranking this crap out in 2013?

Spitting the lyrics like, "Fuck the world, bust a nut. I'm on this and that, and such and such," "Shots! Shots, shots, have a lil' liquor. Got the bitch taking shots like Reggie Miller," and Uh, I can't stop, I won't stop. I got the pistol on me, I guess I went pop makes Fred durst who coined the phrase, "I did it all for the Nookie," sound like Shakespeare and Wayne eternally ignorant.

But oh, let's not forget his rock album debut Rebirthin 2009. The album depicts Wayne as a rock god, slouching on chic furniture, wearing school boy skater clothes with a Fender guitar resting on his body. Trust us, the music doesn't sound any better than that description. With a lead single called "Prom Queen," and a less than stellar vocals that make Wayne sound like a slow talking, whiny bitch.

The album caught a lot of criticism from fans and media, and our brother Jeff Weiss from LA Weekly and LA Times, called the album "one of the worst albums of the year" -- amen to that brother.

This guy has to be a complete dumb ass. Mudvayne had some real talent. Their bass player was very good ar what he did. Slipknot aswell was very talented. To be able to put turn tables in the musicand make it sound good

First, Twisted sister aren't glam metal, they don't have lyrics about love and sex, no upbeat pop melodies and sound NOTHING like bands like poison or Ratt. They are yore rebellious and sound like Judas Priest or Ozzy.Also, hardly any nu metal bands wear makeupAlso, mudvayne's song dig is math metal, not nu metal. There isn't any hip hop in it. Also evanescence is nowhere close to nu metal

Mudvayne is math metal, not nu metal. They only had like 5 nu metal songs and they don't even rap or have any hip hop traits.

Um, I believe David Cross has a skit about this-references Stained, POD and all that other crap.

Guess I am lame, Mudvayne is a pretty tight band and Saliva I wouldn't call Nu-metal more rock and I can listen to them no problems. When I think bad and Nu-metal I think whiny vocals with wannabe guard dog choruses.

This is a joke right :)  right? What's wrong with Mudvayne? Let me guess you only heard dig? Also why did you ruin the number one spot. I don't find it funny

What about Avenged 7 fold & 5 finger death punch?  They both suck ass and rip off older bands.

It's clear to anyone with a brain you know nothing about music if you put MudVayne among this group.  I can't argue Dig is a good song, but its arguably the worst song they've ever made.  You should review all their work before placing them along side of some of the words bands of all time.
