Nu metal (New Metal) is a fusion genre that takes influence from various genres, mostly grunge, alternative rock, groove metal, funk, industrial and hip hop. Artist focus on down-tuned alternative riffing and syncopated structures, with varying emphasis on the different influences of the genres listed prior.

It was pioneered in the early to mid 1990s by bands such as Korn or Limp Bizkit. Soon peaking in popularity, with Korn's Issues reaching number 1 on the Billboard record chart ranking in 1999 and other artists (Godsmack, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot) gaining comparable commercial success, it declined in the early 2000s. .
