So Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit are metal now?

Not a bad first draft, Joe. I'd have thought The Real Thing was a more important alt-metal album than Angel Dust; it sold a bit better and might be a little more acclaimed and influential.

I would think so. They're alt-metal, aren't they?

Joe, I might even bump Hybrid Theory up a little bit. Even though the only criterion it really excels in is popularity, it was so phenomenally successful that a Top 20 spot might be warranted.

No they are not. They're alt-hard rock.

I don't think Linkin Park is anything metal, aside from distorted guitar tones.

I think we'll need a mod call here - they're sound fits the way RYM describes it - screaming/rapping, use of a DJ, groove, polished, liberal use of distortion, post-processing...I consider them metal but I can see where you're coming from.

Not one single album from Soulfly yet everyone comes out of the closet to declare their love for nu-metal.
