A talented band that is in the center of the conflict between whether certain genres of music are "tasteful" and what aren't. It is sad that there is all this arguing over whether certain bands are talented, or whether they are "shitty" compared to the likes of other bands because their style of music became popular to a particular audience (which I think is completely unfair to say; does being played on MTV automatically make a band bad?). If you like how it sounds, than what does it matter how popular they are, or the stereotypes hung over their fans?
Linkin Park has talent, so does Converge. Why not listen to both?
