    Not really digging it right now. Maybe it'll grow on me, but it's no The Catalyst which challenged the listener. This is about as candy coated as it gets for a single. I wonder if the other band members really contributed to this track because this whole song can be whipped up by using Pro Tools or other software.

    I could hump to this beat, no problem. She's obviously just being a bitch.

    Whoa, DUDE. Maybe you ought to read again? I'm not butthurt over anything, IN FACT, there is a more positive response over this song then there was for the last 2 lead singles, so I'm actually surprised.

    After watching the lyric video and seeing the BID artwork in motion, all I could think of is orbital pictures of Earth and the "city lights". Pretty badass.

    It seems they've tried to go vintage LP in terms of Chester and Mike going turn for turn as the song rounds out. There is definitely a feel of the LP of old in there. Imagine if they had a HT type aggressive bridge Lol

    Agreed. The Catalyst was more of an epic first single than this.

    Don't get me wrong – I'm a fan. I've been a fan of Linkin Park since I got Hybrid Theory for Christmas in 2000. I've been listening to them for a long, long time. I'm just not a fan of this song, that's all.

    agreed, i like BID, but not all that much. I like the electronic direction though so pretty stoked to hear the rest of the album

    LP's entire career was whipped up in ProTools. That fact doesn't describe what their writing process is at all.

    No offense, but I'll take this any day over The Catalyst. Don't get me wrong I liked it, but it was a bad single and not radio worthy. And about contributing, you could say that about the whole ATS album which basically was mainly electronic. Of course IMO.

    I don't really know how I feel about this song. It's like Will says, it has a feel that's way too similar to current mainstream music that I don't really like much. I guess it's easier to say there's parts of it I like while there's parts of it I don't like. Hopefully I won't feel the same way about other songs on the album.

    Okay... After a few listens, I get this feeling that Imma get bored of it in like a week due to its repetitive chorus.. Just my opinion

    I think Brad has guitars in the chorus if I'm not mistaken. Idk I could be wrong. But a lot of newer LP songs are like this.
