* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Demonstrated by many bands in the subgenre, whether prominently (Faith No More, Primus) or subtly (Living Colour, Deftones).

* NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly: Demonstrated by This genre brings in ''a lot'' of influences, depending on the band in question. Each band has their own unique style because of it. Here are some examples:
** Music/FaithNoMore has combined metal with just about every other genre, from {{Funk}}, ProgressiveRock, AlternativeRock, HipHop, and even genres like polka, easy listening, gospel, and {{Pop}} music. That's still not listing all of them. Somehow, Mike Patton took it to an [[UpToEleven even bigger extreme]] with his other band, Music/MrBungle. That band did every genre you could possibly imagine, while combined with metal. It was awesome.
** Music/{{Helmet}} infused this genre with GrooveMetal, PostHardcore, and NoiseRock. Their style has even been referred to as "Smart Rock".
** Music/RageAgainstTheMachine drew upon metal, HipHop, and {{Funk}} to create a sound that would be the precursor to the rap rock explosion of the late-'90s. Yet
many bands would agree that no band has done it quite like them. The guitar work by Tom Morello has been known to sound like a completely different instrument due to his innovative playing style.

** Music/AliceInChains featured a weird mixture of this genre, DoomMetal, and {{Grunge}} to become the heaviest band of the latter, capable of rivaling Tool above as the darkest band in alt. metal.
** Music/{{Primus}} is sometimes considered to have invented their own genre. "Thrash-funk meets Creator/DonKnotts" is what they've been called. They must be heard to be believed.
** Music/{{Korn}} is the most bizarre of all, in that they quite literally ''did'' invent their own genre. Their debut album featured elements of GrooveMetal, FunkMetal, {{Grunge}}, HardcorePunk, HipHop, and ProgressiveMetal combined with downtuned guitars, slap-style bass, {{angst}}y lyrics, and the complete absence of solos. This became the template for the "NuMetal" genre, which [[FollowTheLeader numerous other bands copied]].

* NuMetal: Numerous bands fall under both genres (at least at some point in their careers), such as Korn, Deftones, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Disturbed, Sevendust, Godsmack, and Evanescence. Not surprising, since nu metal spawned from this genre.
