Linkin Park - Sigh!

2012-07-26 15:23
When you ask most people what music they listen to, their usual reply is 'everything'.

When you ask if they like jazz, classical or folk, it is usually met with a 'hell no'. You soon realize that 'everything' pertains to what junk is played on 5fm, MTV and the likes.
When you ask them if they like metal, they'll say yeah, I like metal. I like Linkin Park and Nickelback(pickle crack).


And that is what Linkin Park are... the edgy "metal" band that get radio/tv air play for people who can't decide what they like in life other than what's fed to them like Lady Gaga (the shock pop version of the shock rock star Marilyn Manson); ... the band that are probably in their 30's still singing (read whining) about how confused they are in life and trying to relate to pubescent/adolescents.

The band that plays two over-distorted guitar riffs (palm mutes are the limit of their technical abilities), while DJ Double Click bangs away on his "5-key keyboard-thingie" and Laptop (probably a Mac coz they're douche bags); ... the band that collaborated with another douchebag known as Jay Z (who, during live shows, hold up his hands in a way to resemble a vagina? - good lord he is seriously cool).

Then people think it's creative and revolutionary to combine rock with hip-hop/rap, while bands like Anthrax been doing it since the 80's.

Can you see my excitement?
