The 12 Most Thought-Provoking Haircuts In Nu-Metal

Nu-metal produced some of the most intriguing hair/beard combos ever. Coming soon: what Fred Durst's trousers teach us about life.

Sometimes Dryden has a Mohawk, and sometimes he has the inverse of a Mohawk. The human embodiment of yin and yang. Makes you think.

[subheader]2. Most of Mushroomhead[/subheader]

“Entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily” said philosopher William Of Occam (1285-1349). Mushroomhead visually fly in the face of such so-called wisdom with a more-is-more approach that would leave William Of Occam trembling in his monk’s habit.

Most people would struggle to grow five-foot dreadlocks from their heads, yet Chad Gray managed to do it from his chin. Proof that there is no limit to what humanity is truly capable of.

[subheader]4. All of Mudvayne, in fact[/subheader]

A stark reminder from Mudvayne that, in the words of Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679), “The life of man is solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.”

[subheader]5. Wayne Static (RIP) from Static-X[/subheader]

Hair that defies gravity, yet a swinging, plaited beard that is forced to obey it. Makes you think about the duality of life and stuff.

[subheader]6. Everyone even vaguely associated with Twisted Method[/subheader]

It’s just, like, what, like what's going on, man, you know?

[subheader]7. Josey Scott from Saliva[/subheader]

“O, a kiss
Long as my exile, sweet as my revenge!
Now, by the jealous queen of heaven, that kiss I carried from thee, dear, and my true lip
Hath virgined it e’er since.” – Coriolanus, act 5, scene 3. Maybe relevant, dunno. Not really sure what it means.

[subheader]8. Miguel Rascón from Coal Chamber[/subheader]

“One cannot step twice in the same river” said Greek philosopher Heraclitus (540BCE-480BCE). Likewise, no two combinations of hair, dye, gel, chains, piercings, contact lenses and necklaces will ever be truly identical.

[subheader]9. The fella with the sculpted eyebrows, Mohawk and sideburns from Dope[/subheader]

You do you, dude. You do you.

[subheader]10. Vanilla Ice during his nu-metal phase[/subheader]

Is it still a bowl cut if you only have a plate? When are they going to make a Playmobil movie? So many questions.

[subheader]11. Twiggy Ramirez from Marilyn Manson[/subheader]

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken” – Oscar Wilde (1854-1900).

[subheader]12. Shifty Shellshock from Crazy Town[/subheader]

His chin looks like someone’s played Pin The Tail On The Donkey on it.
