Because technically they're a hardcore punk band. And that deserves to be on here more than some Nu-Metal news does.

In fact, I don't have that much hair. I look more like a cross between a Russian Mobster and a German Drug Dealer.

To post 10:

They could actually be influenced by some metal. If you listen to the beginning of "Injection", which is track 2 on The Sufferer and the Witness, there's a guitar riff similar to the beginning of the Judas Priest song "Electric Eye".

Rise Against is not metal at all, they are just punk. They never have been a metal band, and probably never will.

That's not the whole point of this. The point is that they are influenced by metal bands
