"nu" means "naked" in French so when I read nu metal I always laugh a little at the thought of "naked metal"

@Siphonay it means "now" in Danish, so I just assume they're really impatient.

@Efi I thought nu was an alternative spelling of "new" or "neo"

@Siphonay Is this the origin of "Rock out with your cock out"?

@Siphonay It's also an interrogative particle in Yiddish and somewhat surprised/disbelieving in Russian. So to me it's more like, "What? Metal?"
