In my first post I didn't include much information about the band because I just wanted to know your opinion about them.
Anyway I knew this band from the T.V I saw the "IN THE END" clip once and I like it so much. I loved the lyrics and the way they skip from the rap to the rock. Actually this band is famous in this style so I started listing to them that's happened about 2 years ago.
Then I meet my boyfriend "Imperial Ice" and Ofcours he was a metal head long time ago then I met the metal songs so I stopped listing to them. (I know long details).
Now I'm so in Gothic Metal and some other bands like Children of Bodoom, Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Iced Earth. But about month ago I heard about the new album for them LP and I liked it so much the lyrics the music even the screaming. I loved there voices and I saw them as a metal band not rock or hard rock but as a metal band I mean when I listen to the song Die Die Die my darling for Metallica I see no different between the song Don't Stay (album Meteora) for LP or the song Faint from the same album.
I hope that someone could understand what I mean or find the missing point in my words so can help me explaining to you Metal Storm about the importance of this band
Thank you

These guys got me into metal along with Evanescence. I loved their first albums, then hated them for a long time because they were "not metal enough" and now I've grown up and I appreaciate them again.
A Thousand Suns is their best album so far in my opinion. I'm seeing them live on October

Hybrid theory and Meteora--that's what LP was all about. For me, they died after Meteora.

When I started getting into "alternative music", I was listening to Linkin Park, Slipknot, The Rasmus, stuff like that... I can't stand any of those bands now apart from Linkin Park. They were more than just teenage angst and stood the test of time

One of the girls decided to visit the balcony for having a smoke, and there she went, only to find out there are frozen mushrooms on the balcony floor. She came back quickly and told about disgusting frozen mushrooms, and I slowly started to remember that it possibly was my last night's puked pizza on that balcony floor. Well, she still remembers me from those mushrooms, and I remember the song "Going Under".


Still a better love story than twillight!

The band that immediately comes to mind when someone says "generic suburban white boy music"....
I remember liking Hybrid Theory and even Meteora when I still had some liking for pop music, but didn't bother following them after that. I eventually realized they're just another over-rated band that got famous following the same algorithm and writing shitty angsty lyrics for all their songs.

This.

Now, they have become some fucking boring dubstep crap group who have lost popularity, money and fame. Well, i must tell you this band WAS broke up when Mike Shinoda and Chester started their own groups( Fort Minor and Dead By Sunrise) and created feud.

I don't like them personally, but then again I don't really know a lot about them. This thread reminded me of my silly twelve year old self trying to get into their music because a couple of my friends were into it and not being able to because the songs I was listening to by them made me really sad. Oh well, haha.

All of their material is great until Minutes To Midnight. Everything After that is bad to me.

You know, it's funny. All of my friends love these guys and none of us understand why I don't like them either! It's crazy! They write interesting songs about personal struggles, they have a perfect mix of heavy and emotional moments, and they even have ties to rap just like Slipknot. But for some reason I just can't get into them! I did get into metal thanks to a few of their videos on MTV years back though, so I can't knock them for that!

Every single word of this. Punctuation mark included. The "Transformers" incident didn't work very well for them. They hit on Billboard and all that, but the music quality went down.

I never had a problem with them. I only heard some songs from Hybrid Theory and Meteora when they were popular (around 2000-2002 I guess), and I liked them. Metalcore bands are much more annoying than them imo.

It basically sums up my thoughts as well.

...Nah but seriously I used to listen to some of their songs when I was younger. Just the most mainstream and popular stuff, they never caught my attention.

They're okay, sorta catchy and have some good songs, though half their songs sound the same. I only like their more metallic stuff, though it's still far from metal.

The other day I listened to "Hybrid Theory"...that was nostalgic, but not specially music I like now. If they introduced me a song called "In the end" or "Crawling" today I'll be just like ....meeeeeh. Nostalgia works people, it does.

I like some of their songs. I relate them to Tranformers so they sound quite nice.

I liked their first 2 albums; the following ones I did not because they were sounding less-metal/rock and more pop/electronic. But the new one I like; they're getting back to their roots now. Good change of musical direction.

I just like their first 2 albums. "Crawling" "Papercut" "In the End" "Faint" and "Numb" were my favourites. Chester Bennington is very good though. He could be a great Metal vocalist.

Listening to them now for nostalgic reasons and heh... they're not half as bad as I remembered. "Numb" is a great example of how to make a four-chord-song without being too obvious about it and that actually takes some skill. I kind of like their overall sound and the vocals too, I think if the guitars were actually interesting I'd listen to them for other than nostalgic reasons too
