"Numb" by Linkin Park
Their debut album, Hybrid Theory, was nominated for "Best Rock Album" at the 2002 Grammy's.
With the exception of ’80s glam, no hard-rock subgenre has been more critically reviled–or found more chart success–than the nu-metal that dominated the airwaves during our most recent millennial shift. Fusing Nirvana’s trademark dynamics with influences from rap and electronic rock, nu-metal was brash, funky, and free of the hand-wringing guilt that kept flannel’s most visible flag-flyers from embracing their stardom (and shacking up with porn stars).
Korn's official music video for 'Got The Life'.
To date, Korn has won two Grammy awards out of seven nominations.
From Kittie to Korn, "Down With the Sickness" to "Du Hast," these late '90s and early 2000s monsters defined an oddball branch of heavy music obsessed with horror, rap and riffs.
Slipknot's music video for 'Psychosocial' from the album, All Hope Is Gone - available now on Roadrunner Records.
To date, Slipknot has won one Grammy award out of ten nominations.
