I don't like Linkin Park. I think their songs all sound the same. In my opinion, it's the same rapping sequence followed by the guy who screechs.

Why am I suddenly mentioned in all this?

I don't like every band that is mentioned on this board but I think saying "they suck" is the answer I'd expect from a frustrated, angry teenager, not a mature, adult person. (goes for the POP/ATYCLB debates too) Use arguments and debate, don't just blindly attack.

None of us are (well, probably) music experts or critics so technically we're really in no position to debate whether a band is good or bad strictly musically speaking.
All we CAN do is say whether we like them or not, or don't care for them either way. (I don't see what looks of the band/singer have to do with liking the band either)

Personally I don't care either way about Linkin Park. And I don't recall saying about a band "they suck" or calling anyone stupid for not liking a band or album.
However, saying "i hate this band" in a webpage where you know there's a healthy dose of supporters of that particular band may not be a good idea. Especially if you do it on several occasions. Surprise surprise, fans of a band can take the bashing of their fave band seriously.

Although you are right about the thing that personal opinion is what defines the music today, but I believe that an objective parameter does exist. That bad music can be recognized. Good music too. There are differences in quality. Linkin park have nothing. They are a band without charisma, originality(all songs sound the same). Their song structure is banal and without that annoying synthesizer in the background, they don't have their own sound. And they are shitty live. So, this is a band that mostly does bad music. I think that most of you will agree with me.
Or is this just my personal opinion...

The thing about LP is that they're a management- assembled "boy band" just like N'Sync et al., just marketed to the nu-metal crowd rather than the teenyboppers. Keep that in mind and suddenly you understand their place in today's music more clearly...

That said, a few of their songs have caught my attention from time to time on the radio... but the angry 15-year-old I used to be is the one who would have bought the albums... one song in particular almost perfectly describes my life some 20 years ago and it has the temerity to share a name with a song by U2. Sigh.

I don't hate them... but yes, their songs are the same thing

just I find annoying the attitude of "I'm a rebel boy", I don't know in USA, but here, teenagers who listen to LP believe themselves as "bad guys in opposition to the established"... bah

is the attitude, not the music... LP's music doesn't matter for me

I dont get the need to try to force your personal opinions on others that way.
Thank you. .

Anywho, Linkin Park-I personally can't get into them much. They just don't really do anything for me. But more power to those of you who do like them. .

"In The End" is an okay song, though-I like the piano bit. .

Personally I despise any and every form of rap. Linkin Park are in that general genre, but theyre not the worst by a long way. I still dislike them though

I don't want to break out the Haterade on Linkin Park because I don't have enough exposure to them other than their singles/videos to have an adequate argument against them. I don't care for their music mainly because I don't like to mix my rock with my rap. Making goth-inspired music containing a rapper is a little too much of a stretch for me and my ears. That's pretty much the entirety of my feelings on this subject.

I don't like the little I've heard of Linkin Park, but they don't grate on my nerves that much because it's pretty easy for me to avoid them. I don't watch MTV anymore and the radio stations where I live don't seem to play them that much (probably because we don't have a "new rock" or "modern rock" station).

They suck. They're N'Sync for boys.

That intrigues me. I think they deserve another listen...
