Nü metal—it’s back, in case the Nookie DJ night at Chop Suey wasn’t a loud enough signal. The maligned early-’00s fusion of hiphop and groove metal appeals to the angsty teens in us, and does so with all the subtlety of a chain saw. For whatever reason, glorified turn-of-the-century throwback tour Pain in the Grass just sounds fun this year. Maybe it’s because headliners Korn just released their best album in a decade—not that they’d set the bar very high. Maybe it’s because in the middle of the bill sits Deep South Eminem disciple Yelawolf. Maybe it’s because Corey Taylor of Stone Sour and Slipknot is, plainly speaking, a kickass rock singer and there just aren’t that many left playing amphitheaters. Our angsty teenage selves were wrong about many things, but maybe not about music. JOSEPH SCHAFER
