A stupid corporate "rap/rock" band that teenage girls and confused boys listen to.
They come from Agura Hills, California (Probably the whitest and most middle-class city in Los Angeles County), and currently live, from what I've heard, in Orange County (No explanation needed). They all grew up, white, (I guess for the rapper, Japanese) privileged, middle-class teenagers, so what on earth could they possible be angry about?
Nothing, yet all the pre-teens eat it up, constantly buying they're crappy merchandise (There's SO much of it) and they're bland albums.
And BTW, they have the worst lyrics of any band EVER. They're corny, predictable, and my god what a horrible rapper.
The only reason Linkin Park is famous is because it's accessible. They're melodies and choruses are catchy, and since they're not talking about controversial topics (Like Rage against the machine) all of the soccer moms let they're kids listen to them.
And no, they're not metal. I don't care if they're Electronica or Nu metal or whatever, real metal is NEVER corporate...
