Formed way back in 1988 (I had no idea, thanks Wikipedia!) the Deftones released their  debut Adrenaline in 1995 and were unfairly lumped in with Nu-Metal bands like Limp Bizkit and Korn.  I say unfairly because this band is so much more.  While they were certainly new and influenced by metal they also played a more sophisticated for of it.  With influences ranging from hip-hop to bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jawbox and The Cure the Deftones are the best of the crop of bands to come from the reign of Nu-Metal.

    Good song selection. I would have put Be Quet And Drive (Far Away) in there too.
