Six Bands You Didn't Know Were Still Around
Speaking of bands who somehow found a way to keep it going despite all the odds, Coal Chamber quietly disbanded in 2003, but they're back! In 2011, they reformed without anyone really caring or noticing, and they've been plugging away at reviving nu-metal ever since.
I have to give Coal Chamber for one thing, though: they're a lot funnier to listen to than most of the bands on this list. While Sevendust is just boring and generic, Coal Chamber is hilarious and stupid. They also have the weird hair and piercings to laugh at. I'm not sure if they kept that since reuniting, but I hope so.
And finally, there's Powerman 5000. These guys are seriously dedicated, having released ten albums of their bullshit industrial alt-metal. It's sort of an accomplishment that they've managed to keep this going for this long, so kudos to them, I guess.
I would have thought Mindless Self Indulgence (also still a band, sadly) would fill anyone's need for music like this, but since they only have five records, I guess Powerman 5000 is there to water it down a bit and satisfy all your aching yearning for more.
