often they're classified as nu metal, so i would drop them into that.  many extreme metal fans and classic metal fans would say "that's not REAL metal", but I say close enough.

Metal's just a branch of "Rock" anyways, I can't understand why people get offended when nu metal and rock bands get grouped in with metal by classification.

That should answer your question.

metal has a certain edge to it that rock doesn't.

it's like rock is saying screw you, while metal says fuck you. eh?

I would call drowning pool "hard rock" (cock rock).
Its what dudes  who buy  xbox360s to get the new madden or  listen to hinder and when they need to rock out they put on there godsmack/disturbed/drowning pool.  They think its raw and abraisive and have only been to shows in hockey rinks.

I like
Good hardrock bands like helicopters, fu manchu and kyuss stuff like that. 

When I think of metal I think of sweet thrash metal that's fast and evil as hell, and the record doesn't sound like a fucking computer.

Basically ppl that call these bands metal fall into the following catogories. 

Ppl who are metal posuers who shop at the harley shop across from the DR, 15 yearold male who follows the wwe, or someone who wears a hydralic collar when they go out DRINK'n.

Can't really be more clear than that.

But there are a tonne of 20-30 yo's who blast rob zombie out of their trucks that come in looking for METAL and when I ask there fav bands they say godsmack, drowning pool, disturbed annnd the NEW stone sour. 

Not to say there isn't some legit dudes who are into good music and the old dudes who come in and I jam them pink floyd on vinyl and hook them up with some red sparowes after.

Is Drowning Pool Metal?
Is Nu-Metal Metal?

Definately not. they miss the element of intelligence.

If you write music about something that ... hasnt been experienced by you personally, you can not truely make a song about it, with it's full potential. *cough brutal death and gore cough*

You can speculate... but... you cant actually put legit feelings into the music.   

Thus creating an illogical toss together of nice sounding riffs.

metal is not defined by intelligence.  nor is it defined by musical talent and intricate writing.

haven't honestly heard enough of them to classify, but bodies qualifies for nu metal easily.  similar to godsmack.  maybe i'm just thinking of the wah solo.

bingo.  praise point there.

the argument at its core is pretty well whether "nu metal" should be considered "metal".
