Also, i dont think a hip hop element HAS to be present for a band to be nu-metalish (spineshank comes to mind, among others), but if it IS there, then theyre almost certainly nu-metal.
Like a said Slipknot has very few songs that can actually be categorized as having Hip-Hop elements. Im sorry, Turntables does not mean that a band is Hip-Hop at all. When i think of the hip-hop elments in metal/hardcore bands i think of Linkin Park, POD, Hollywood Undead, Ill Nino, etc. Just becasue Slipknot has fast paced songs does not mean that they are hip-hop influenced. Look at All Hope is Gone and The Subliminal Verses.... Nothing.
So you're saying that you would put Rage Against the Machine and Faith No More into a hip-hop category? Wrong my friend
