    Hey elf,

    Just wondering how do you classify bands such as Limp Bizkit and Linking Park...rap with metal sounding lyrics...

    I'll include Pantera on my Metal playlist tonight before I go to sleep. I have several Pantera songs including the two you mentioned.

    Your love story is cute and inspiring.

    As I once wrote, "Love may be the corniest feeling in the world, but it is the most beautiful and wonderful feeling."

    Besides, only people who are brokenhearted or not in love would say that love is corny.

    Lastly, "korni" or "baduy" is subjective.

    Kapag may edad ka na, at kapag malawak na ang pananaw mo sa buhay, nagiging openminded ka na, wala nang baduy-baduy; you learn to appreciate almost everything and try to understand it or give it a chance.

    According to Wikipedia, a very reliable source, Limpbizkit and Linkin Park belong to Nu metal - a subgenre / fusion genre of (Heavy Metal or) Metal Music.

    Actually, I'm finishing an elaborate article about Metal music. Di ko pa lang matapos at andaming details na biglang naiisip kong idagdag. Hehehe.

    Wait for that. I'll post the essential songs from the various genres of Metal music--from Classic (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest), Thrash (Metallica, Slayer) to Glam (Extreme, Bon Jovi, G n' R) and Nu metal.

    If you have time, check this out for now. It's a good read:
