* Music/TheSmashingPumpkins (also influenced by {{Shoegazing}}, ProgressiveRock, PsychedelicRock, DreamPop, GothRock and AlternativeRock - basically, think Deftones but with more nasal vocals, and you'd be reasonably close.)

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Usually most bands under alt-metal tend to be in the 5-7 range, with a few bands getting up to 8. Due to its eclectic nature however, songs can be literally anywhere on the scale, for instance Music/DirEnGrey and Slipknot are both capable of surpassing an 8.

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

to:

* 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/{{Tool}} mixed this with art rock and a slew of other genres such as PostHardcore, {{Ambient}}, PostRock, ProgressiveMetal, math Rock, and more to create a DarkerAndEdgier version of this genre, gather massive acclaim
in the subgenre, whether prominently (Faith No More, Primus) or subtly (Living Colour, Deftones).process.
** 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]].
