    I think there's quite a lot of political/anti-consumerism/anti-religion/"world-leaders-suck" themed songs in the world of Nu Metal. Korn has a few tracks, like Hypocrites. Disturbed has a lot. Nothingface has a kind of satirical anti-american approach on their Skeletons album. CLAWFINGER is super political on every album. Genuflect too. I think The Union Underground and POD count into that category at least a little as well. Even Papa Roach has their "Between Angels and Insects" hit song! Just pointing this stuff out, for anyone looking for that kind of themed bands, not to argue with anyone.

    Excluding System Of A Down, there are barely any political themed Nu Metal songs (which is strange given what an impact Rage Against the Machine had on the genre.)

    Nu Metal lyrics can range from political themes, bad childhood themes, teenage alienation, or something totally random.

    In my humble opinion, the whole "HAIL SATAN & I'M SO BRUTAL" is more childish than some of the adolescent themes in Nu metal. I'm not denying, a lot of bands are heavily into the occult and don't rip of their lyrical themes and ideas from horror movies (Carcass and their medical terms) but some of the lyrics present in Extreme Metal are so childishly brain dead.

    "Nu metal was simply heavier and had more interesting and less childish ideas than anything that has been happening to traditional metal since early 70s Black Sabbath." YEP. Plus extreme Metal is only interesting because it borrows a lot from Punk. Just listen to Celtic Frost's early material and note the D-beat drumming. In fact 1st wave Grindcore's punky leanings are closely related to 1st wave Black Metal's punky phrasing. Furthermore, listen to some early Finnish Black Metal, and the grimey textures & the frenzied, dissonant riffs are reminiscent of Grindcore (Archgoat, Impaled Nazarene.) Extreme Metal owes a lot to Discharge and Hardcore Punk.

    Great genre, it blew music away, and it is one of the few things that keep us alive! This music can talk political sometimes, and influence some good change, on the other side of music, the popular stuff today rots peoples brains and slaughters them.

    Yes sir! Nu metal wipes the floor with all those dreadful 'traditional metal' subgeners combined all together! That's exactly what i think...always had and always will!
