Let’s compare ‘Metal Hammer’ and “Spin’s lists of top nu-metal tunes

Posted by on July 5, 2017

 

Three years ago, the UK edition of Metal Hammer unleashed their top forty nü metal songs of all time. Yesterday (4), the list resurfaced online and it seems a few of these selections could raise a handful of arguments and debates. Check out their list below:

40) Ill Niño – “What Comes Around”

39) A – “Nothing”

38) Orgy – “Blue Monday”

37) One Minute Silence – “South Central”

36) Issues – “Hooligans”

35) Deftones – “My Own Summer (Shove It)”

34) Incubus – “Drive”

33) Linkin Park – “One Step Closer”

32) The Union Underground – “Turn Me On Mr. Deadman”

31) Static-X – “Push It”

30) Spineshank – “New Disease”

29) Evanescence – “Bring Me To Life”

28) Saliva – “Click Click Boom”

27) Soulfly – “Bleed”

26) Snot – “Snot”

25) N.E.R.D. – “Lapdance”

24) Machine Head – “From This Day”

23) Incubus – “A Certain Shadow Of Green”

22) (hed)p.e. – “Bartender”

21) Taproot – “Again And Again”

20) Adema – “Giving In”

19) Hoobastank – “Crawling In The Dark”

18) Crazy Town – “Butterfly”

17) Limp Bizkit – “Rollin’”

16) Korn – “Freak On A Leash”

15) Coal Chamber – “Loco”

14) Slipknot – “Wait And Bleed”

13) Kid Rock – “American Badass”

12) Mudvayne – “Dig”

11) American Head Charge – “Just So You Know”

10) Disturbed – “Down With The Sickness”

09) Drowning Pool – “Bodies”

08) Alien Ant Farm – “Movies”

07) Deftones – “Back To School (Mini Maggit)

06) Linkin Park – “Points Of Authority”

05) P.O.D. – “Alive”

04) Papa Roach – “Last Resort”

03) System Of A Down – “Chop Suey!”

02) Korn – “Blind”

01) Limp Bizkit – “Break Stuff”

It’s surprising to see bands such as Alient Ant Farm, Hoobastank, Incubus, and Evanescence to make the list, even thought some of them were clearly marketed as such at the time. However, a few song selections including Linkin Park’s “Points of Authority,” Orgy’s “Blue Monday,” and Kid Rock’s “American Badass” could have changed to “One Step Closer,” “Stitches,” and “Bawitdaba.” Interesting to see Issues make the list, proving that nu-metal isn’t just a time period starting in the mid-to-late ’90s and ending a few years later.

Back in May, Spin revealed their top 30 nü metal songs, and it seems a little more authentic than Metal Hammer’s. Let’s face it, despite their similarities, they didn’t exclude bands Kittie and Sevendust. Check out the list below:

30) Rage Against the Machine — “Bulls on Parade”

29) Skrape — “Waste”

28) Mudvayne — “Dig”

27) Puddle of Mudd — “Control”

26) Staind — “Mudshovel”

25) Spineshank — “New Disease”

24) Taproot — “Poem”

23) KiTTiE — “Brackish”

22) Soulfly — “Bleed”

21) Sevendust — “Black”

20) (Hed) Planet Earth — “Bartender”

19) The Union Underground — “Across The Nation”

18) Adema — “Giving In”

17) Coal Chamber — “Loco”

16) Static-X — “Push It”

15) Saliva — “Click Click Boom”

14) Deadsy — “The Key to Gramercy Park”

13) Crazy Town — “Butterfly”

12) Drowning Pool — “Bodies”

11) Slipknot — “Wait and Bleed”

8) P.O.D. — “Boom”

7) Limp Bizkit — “Break Stuff”
