Dope’s Edsel Dope Shares His Choices For The ’10 Greatest Nü-Metal Songs’


Edsel Dope has been a man of many faces amid the nü-metal scene. In addition to fronting Dope and branching out as ‘Zer0‘ with his outfit Drama Club, the vocalist/guitarist/programmer has also long been rumored to be the current frontman of Static-X, ‘Xer0‘. In addition to his managerial work, it’s fair to say Edsel‘s has had some skin in the game.

Revolver recently quizzed him on what his choices for the ten greatest nü-metal songs are, here’s what he responded with:

  • 10. Fear Factory – “Edgecrusher
  • 09. Sevendust – “Black
  • 08. Static-X – “I’m With Stupid
  • 07. Mudvayne – “Dig
  • 06. Rob Zombie – “Dragula
  • 05. Coal Chamber – “Loco
  • 04. Slipknot – “Wait And Bleed
  • 03. Korn – “Blind
  • 02. Linkin Park – “In The End
  • 01. Limp Bizkit – “Break Stuff

Edsel also provided explanations for each his choices over at Regarding his choice to list “Break Stuff” at #1, he offered:

“Another genre-defining masterpiece.. Nobody did Limp Bizkit better than Limp Bizkit and so many failed trying. They took what Korn was doing and made it even more accessible to the masses, by placing Fred‘s unapologetic white trash rap-rock delivery at the forefront. People loved them, people hated them and others loved to hate them, but in the end, nobody could ignore them. In my opinion, this song is a perfect combination of all the things that made Limp Bizkit the unstoppable nu-metal machine that they became.”
