Yeah, we did it again. We made another Nu-Metal episode. While this might be fun to do annually, it’s kinda becoming more painful aurally and emotionally each time. This time, though, we switched it up a little because apparently some kids think the style should be brought back. Kids, mind you, who were in diapers when the first wave happened*. Hasn’t anybody heard of “live and let die?” Not the song…the saying.
*I didn’t check their ages, but trust me…they’re young whipper snappers.
