Hello, guys! I think the title says all. I searched for a while but nobody can really explain this question. I don't listen to these styles too much... I even don't like them too much.

Nothing more to say, I guess. Can you help me (explain with you own words) ?

Thanks!

2. Glam metal was also heaviliy commercialized in the 80s, and bands used tons of makeup and long hair, yet that's praised by metalheads. What makes nu metal so different?


Glam is praised by metalheads? Generally speaking, that is not true. Glam was just as vilified in the 80's by metalheads as nu-metal has been since it's inception in the mid-90's. Sure, a minority of metalheads like glam, but then a minority of metalheads also have no problem with nu-metal. In general though, glam is pretty much hated just as much as nu-metal is by most metalheads.

Obviously I wasn't around at the time, but my understanding of the scene back then is the same.

1. There are plenty of underground nu metal bands.

I'll point out the flaw with this since Angelic Storm took on point number 2.

There are plenty of underground pop artists. That doesn't mean pop music isn't commercialized.
