Deftones' 4th album comes during the peak of nu metal where Limp Bizkit is selling millions upon millions of copies with his album 'Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water', and nu metal, is truly one of the only genres to not age well, most of the content in the music videos and lyrics not aging too well with today's standards.

Favorite Jams: Elite, Digital Bath, Knife Party

Favorite Tracks: Digital Bath, Elite, RX Queen, Knife Party, Passenger, Pink Maggit
