Gowienczyk;2109253 said:Bleh.JUST KIDDING.
a21schizoidman;2109544 said:but the title of the thread has linkin park mentioned, making this about King Crimson would be an insult to KC
Insane3;2109549 said:Though I have to say I deeply dislike Linkin Park, I don't think that there is any reason to diss on them this way. I do believe that people who listen to LP have been brainwashed to it by all the publicity it gets, but that's not a reason for hatred. In fact I believe that there is no good reason to have fun dissing on people. It's called *****ing and it's young teenagers' favorite sport (and what I just did is called generalization but it's ok, because I own you all. I simply am better in every way).
Fizzeler;2109547 said:Good point how about Atheist?
a21schizoidman;2109572 said:people who enjoy linkin park are people who have not been exposed to music outside the mainstream
a21schizoidman;2109578 said:this thread should just be burned and buried
Insane3;2109608 said:Or that simply enjoy music that they have heard very multiple times before. I don't enjoy Aerosmith and I have been exposed to them a lot. I'll don't think I'll ever get my friends to like Gentle Giant no matter how I try. They just don't have enough interest in music to appreciate technical skills. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. It just makes me mad I can't talk about music with most of the people I know. I also think instead of saying a band (LP) sucks balls, we should propose similar (and better... in our opinion) bands.
a21schizoidman;2109619 said:but in order to get them to listen to other bands, we need to convince them how much linkin park sucks by introducing the other bands!but since im at school, i cant post good music right now
Insane3;2109633 said:What are you studying? (Since nobody wants to talk about LP... obviously lol)

instantdeath999;2109655 said:From my experience, attempting to "convince" a person that a band they like sucks normally doesn't do any good... more often than not, it does the opposite.Algebra, on the other hand, needs to die in a fire.
instantdeath999;2109631 said:Chester, I think he has a good voice.
Onslaught_fei;2109708 said:You know, Ive actually seen LP twice in concert. (I have seen so many bands, a large chunk of whom I do not actively listen to or claim to be a fan). Once was solely because of my wife, shes a fan, and the other time they toured with Metallica (Big company of us, multiple cars and big road trip).When Im watching a band live, especially one who Im not familiar or think Im familiar with, I scrutinize them heavily. I was expecting his voice to have been fleshed out and smoothed out in the studio and horrible live but his live performance (and it was on a DVD they released, this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R71Jrv0Kp28. My group is in the front row and Im actually visible a few times) was spot on.I mean, I know they are stupidly popular but in all honesty I would not write their talent off. My wife claims they toured 90% of the year during their 1st and 2nd albums and you have to strike something, maybe not instrumental talent, to sell almost 25 million of the same ****ing album.
instantdeath999;2109732 said:I'll actually say that Chester is not a bad singer at all. I've only seen a live DVD, but he could actually replicate his studio vocals, something that can't be said about the vast majority of vocalists from the nu-metal movement. I actually like some of the vocally driven songs, like "In Pieces". Of course, the band itself is very simple.
Onslaught_fei;2109741 said:The guitars are pretty ****ing horrible.
instantdeath999;2109745 said:Yes, they are. Which is why I like In Pieces. Almost no guitars.I also don't really care for the rapping.
