15 Most Ridiculous Nu Metal Nicknames

Ah, the early 2000s, when rap was rock and everyone had a really, really stupid name.

15. “Wuv” Bernando of P.O.D.

Real first name: Noah. Isn’t that a nice name?

14. “Coby Dick” of Papa Roach

In his defense, he announced a few years ago he wants to go by his real name, Jacoby Shaddix.

13. “Traa” Daniels of P.O.D.

Real name: Mark Daniels

12. “Fieldy” from Korn

Real name: Reginald Arvizu. Ok, fair enough, I’d want to go by a nickname, too if I were a Reginald.

11. “Stage” Williams of Drowning Pool

Apparently the nickname Stage came about because….. he liked to be on stage.

Sadly, Stage (real name: Dave Williams) died suddenly on the band’s tour bus of cardiomyopathy, a heart disease.

10. “Munky” from Korn

Real name: James Shaffer

9. “Wayne Static” of Static-X

Real name: Wayne Wells. Why not change Wayne?

8. “Twiggy Ramirez” of Marilyn Manson’s band

Real name: Jeordi White

7. “Bug” from Coal Chamber

Real name: Mikey Cox. Supposedly, he got the nickname because he would always annoy Coal Chambers’s bassist, Rayna Foss-Rose.

6. “Fuzz” from Disturbed

Real name: Steve Kmak

5. “Ashes” from Static-X

Honestly, I can’t find any information on his real name. It’s just Ashes.

4. “Mawk” of Hed PE

Real name: Mark Young.

3. “Tiny Bubz” of Hed PE

Hed PE is like an all-star line-up of silly names. Also includes:
Trauma
DJ Project © 1969 (yes, copyright symbol included)
Alfunction
The Finger
Moke

2. “Fred” Durst of Limp Bizkit

Frederick is actually his middle name - his first name is William. Who chooses to goes by “Fred” if they have a different name?

1. “Spider One”, singer of Powerman 5000

Possibly the silliest band name, band, style of dress, and everything. Real name is much more metal anyway: Michael Cummings. You have a name like MIKE CUMMINGS and you change it to some stupid bug reference? Smh.
