    Episode 127 – Nu Metal Special


    I love nu metal. There was a short period of my life where I was a little ashamed by it, but that’s long gone. There is some really good stuff in the genre that I think most people ignored because of garbage like Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin’.” There’s more to nu metal than that and if you can’t share my love of the genre as a whole, maybe you can at least find a song or two for the next time you feel the need to mosh.
