Hey, I’m Andrew Cahak.


I’m a Minneapolis-based writer, comedian and artist but I grew up in the 90’s in suburban Iowa, home of Slipknot and many, many sullen teenagers.


I wanted to do this show because I’ve always felt like a lot of the artists were exploring interesting musical ideas, some much more successfully than others.


I have a complicated relationship with this music. I love some of it. I hate some of it. Some of this stuff I’ve never heard before.  I think this will be a great platform to celebrate the good parts of nu metal, honestly discuss the bad parts and maybe redeem a much-maligned genre of music that a lot of people loved.

If you love nü metal, this show is for you. If you want to hate nü metal, this show is for you. If you’re just curious what it’s all about, this show is for you.  I want this show to be a communal experience.  I want you to be involved in building this  into something worthwhile.  If you want to make sure your favorite OR least favorite album ends up on the list for future episodes, say something now.  If you just ARE Fred Durst, email me.
