Nu metal (also called aggro metal) is a controversial musical genre that fuses influences from alternative rock, hip-hop and heavy metal music in varying degrees and quantities.
While nu metal was viewed by the media and fans as indicitive of a resurgence of metal music in the late 90s, most heavy metal fans do not consider nu metal a form of heavy metal music at all, arguing the genre is too diluted from what they consider "true" heavy metal.
Nu metal bands essentially defined the image of modern metal music in the late 90s/early 2000s by headlining major rock concerts like the Ozzfest festival and Woodstock 1999 and dominating the playlists of both Modern Rock and hard rock radio stations, to the chagrin of many.

 Nu metal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nu metal (also called new metal, neo metal, aggro metal or nü metal using the traditional heavy metal umlaut) is a musical genre that has origins in the mid 1990s.
The nu metal bass is often slow and reminiscent of hip hop or funk music, strutting a loud sound that could arguably compete with the presence of the band's vocalist.
Nu metal bands often feature aggressive vocals that range from melodic singing akin to pop, rock and punk, guttural screaming and shouting from various forms of metal music, and rapping.

Nu metal bands feature aggressive vocals (either rapped, shouted, or sung), low and heavily-distorted guitars, unorthodox drumming, and sometimes DJ techniques such as scratching and sampling.
Nu metal guitarists, for example, typically forgo traditional metal guitar technique, such as soloing andoften use riffs quite different from those most commonly associated with traditional metal.
While traditional heavy metal was very much guitar-based, with intricate guitar solos and complex riffs forming an important part of most songs, nu metal generally emphasizes the guitar as a rhythmic instrument.

 Turns of Phrase: Nu-metal
As nu here is the common pop-music respelling of new, the term pretty much explains itself—it’s a revitalised form of the heavy metal musical genre of the seventies and eighties, a style of loud, vigorous and often harsh-sounding rock music that was linked to an intense and spectacular performing style.
Metal drifted out of fashion in the nineties, though it never went away completely.
The performing style is still as heavily amplified and intense as ever; nu-metal gigs were described recently by Nicholas Barber in the Independent on Sunday as being “costumed, pyrotechnic riots of blood, sweat and earth-shaking volume”, though he also complained that the lyrics were self-pitying and peevish.

 Nu Metal - Metal Hordes Forums
I'm not sure what Usurper means by andquot;a band that is really metal NEVER plays on the radio.andquot; This seems to me to be a fallacious statement since no band actually andquot;playsandquot; on a radio but are actually played based on whether or not they are on a station's play-list.
There would be no heavy metal radio anywhere of any kind if it were simply a case of metalers saying andquot;We won't allow our music to be on the radio.andquot; The fact is, most listening audiences don't like metal, so metal has a negligible radio presence.
this is why those bands on the radio are usually not metal-- it's not the fact that they are refusing to be played, it's the fact that the music on the radio is dumbed down, generally, for the listening audience.
