    I'd have to with whoever the turntables guy is, just because he doesn't really contribute to their crappy music.

    I have to go with either of the asian guys, since you know, my heritage and all that jazz.

    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).

    Edit: ... the word ***** is banned?? lol...

    people who enjoy linkin park are people who have not been exposed to music outside the mainstream

    Who woulda guessed that having a clear tangible side of mainstream style hip hop without the materialistic or mysogynous stylings while blending the aggression and sound of heavy metal and rock wasnt an easy button for a 24x platinum debut CD.

    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 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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Yes, they are. Which is why I like In Pieces. Almost no guitars.

    I also don't really care for the rapping.

    Never heard the song so I just listened to it. Wheres the rapping? The guitar seemed like it was gonna be a rhythm instrument as it always is (playing only 1 note a measure there) with this band but then it shifted to a lead guitar and did a guitar solo. Strange. I dunno, not familiar with anything really beyond their first album I think, when my wife and I were dating going to concerts with the crowd all the time.
