What happened to Linkin Park?October 11th, 2010
Seriously. What happened?
Linkin Park has 2 absolutely amazing albums with Hybrid Theory and Meteora. Not a dull song in the group, original music, awesome fast pace rhythms, and totally bad as solos. Then what? We got some remixes with Jay Z (which weren’t bad, just nothing new really), then we were handed the shit fest known as Minutes to Midnight. While Minutes to Midnight had a few good songs on it like Bleed It Out and What I’ve Done, even those good songs didn’t sound like the Linkin Park we’d known and loved from Hybrid Theory and Meteora.
Well, everyone is allowed one stinker album right? I figured I would let Minutes to Midnight slide and still call myself a Linkin Park fan. That was until I heard the songs off A Thousand Suns… wow. They got even worse than Minutes to Midnight. What the hell? A Thousand Suns doesn’t have a single good song on it. They’re all electronic fucking garbage. What happened to the bad ass guitar solos, bad ass drum, and original lyrics not the shit like “god bless us everyone, blah blah blah”. Every single A Thousand Suns song is absolute garbage. Just filth.
So again, I ask, WHAT HAPPENED?
Did someone get off drugs? Someone go on drugs? What?
Whatever it is, I am no longer a Linkin Park fan. I am still a fan of their original albums, but this new stuff as just awful.
I leave you with my favorite Linkin Park song. RIP Linkin Park.
