    Great article. This should be a news post. But...

    You would think an AP article would get their facts. I mean, it's debatable, but you can't flat out say Mike is the leading vocalist. Idk, it just bothers me that the person who writes the article doesn't do his/her research.

    If those LPTV videos were anything to go by, I'd say Mike has most of influence in terms of what final lyrics are.

    Was a decent article however when I read this "The new sound wasn't intentional for the guys. They say while creating 2007's "Minutes to Midnight," they decided to head in a direction different from their first two albums: The 2003 multiplatinum effort "Meteora" and their 10 million-selling debut, 2000's "Hybrid Theory." I had to ask myself... not intentional?

    I agree, but by no means is he the official "Lead vocalist" of Linkin Park. I mean, look at M2M haha.

    Lyricist would be the guy actually writing the lyrics, not necessarily singing them.

    Well Mike does have a pretty big role to be called a lead lyricist. He does more rapping and singing than Chester does singing, but oh well.

    Lyricist =/= vocalist.

    Mike actually calls me up before any lyrics are final.
