Hello and welcome to Were They Nu-Metal, the thread where someone names a band and the other posters opine on whether they were nu-metal or not.

Let's start with this band



Incubus

Briefly (Fungus Amongus and SCIENCE). Even then, it was maybe closer to funk metal?

after which they became a curious blend of:

a) nu-metal
b) hippy dippy new-agey flip-flop bullshit
c) N'Sync

Make Yourself is a good album.

Basically what LV said, though I’d include Make Yourself as nu metal too.

I nominate Glassjaw. They’re kind of nu, kind of post hardcore, kind of emo. The new album is basically metalcore.

No, Glassjaw is not nu metal and never has been. Too technical, no hip-hop elements.

Based on the one song of theirs I know and a quick Google Image Search, I will say yes, definitely

A lot of it is the rattly bass sound.

To LV's point: I will argue that a hip-hop influence isn't a requirement for nu-metal, though some of its biggest bands definitely have it

Then we’re in agreeance on that one.

How about post grunge like Breaking Benjamin and Seether? Their early stuff is very nu IMO.

Nu Metal > Post-Grunge was a pretty loose transition, yeah.

i'm gonna say no. I always thought of them as a modern take on post-punk/no-wave.
