    Great band. Great music-makers, by no means simply commercial. Currently listening to their Reanimation.

    Reanimation is their weak link, the other 3 albums are gold. I really fail to see why they needed to try and remix hybrid theory as a hip-hopesque album

    Other three? Do you mean the EP as well, or Live In Texas?

    I don't think they spoiled a song at all with Reanimation, I really like it.

    You should try meteora, it has some very good songs on it, almost as many as hybrid theory (I liked all of them by cure for the itch)

    By saying that all their songs sound the same, that is a personal remark. I personally find that all modern Pop music sounds the same. Sometimes it's even hard to distinguish between the gender of the singer, but I digress...

    I do, in fact, like Linkin Park. I think their music 0wn3s a lot of other stuff, though there are other bands I like more. Being a guitarist myself, I respect their songwriting prowess, as some of their stuff is pretty damned hard. And in no way are they over commercialised, although I agree that the crowds of children who run about with their Linkin hoodys and jeans are somewhat annoying and a disgrace to the band itself.

    Remember that it's often not the band itself that choses to commercialise, but those who run it. Which means blame the record companies.

    They are my favourite band. Their best song is Don't Stay in my opinion.

    Does anyone have the Live in Texas DVD?

    Many wouldn't guess that I'm a fan, but I am, I've seen them a few times live now. Last time I was in the front row at their Manchester gig, and yes I was surrounded by 12 year olds who were at their first gig that mommy drove them to, but I still had a load of fun. Good stuff.

    I would say that their best song wound have to be from the inside from meteora, although I like most of their songs, except for cure for the itch, or the entire of reanimation.

    Linkin Park are a great band that take their music seriously as shown by the time they took to make their follow up album to hybrid theory. they did not come out with a new album straight away to ride on the sucess of the 13million selling hybrid theory but came up with an original album that was darker and deeper than the predecessor. One of the best bands out there at the moment without a question. Saw them at wembley in November and they were top class....Hope they play at reading in the summer with metallica (fat chance as they are playing download festival in june). Damn it, what a festival that could be (korn, machinehead etc.) why do festivals happen take place in June (glastonbury,etc.) when people are revisin for exams?

    I'll second that. Linkin Park are an example of a band who are simply too afraid to change their musical style, simply because they fear being rejected by the mainstream. It is quite obvious that them and their record label are just in it for the money.
