In my perception of Linkin Park, they are a very successful band that make music unlike any other band. This is best illustrated by their musical diversity throughout every album and between albums, their pivotal career move in straying away from their old nu-metal sound after Meteora (which the band considers to be their smartest, it has drawn in many more fans) and their constant craving for experimentation and creative innovation. I don't know of any rock band that makes the kind of stuff LP has made. However, LP considers themselves a "genre-less" band, so they aren't just a rock band, they seem like they're their own genre. So this got me thinking, with aspiring musicians who may be inspired by LP's music, might their unique sound become less unique in the future or will people come up with new ways to present their LP inspired sound with a fresh new vibe? Will this unique genre LP has created become an official genre in the future? Or is LP so unpredictable that their sound cannot be truly defined? I came across a youtube channel of a new band called Riverline (https://www.youtube.com/user/riverlinemusic/videos ), they're mainly inspired by Linkin Park and you can see that if you listen to their tracks (Which are awesome btw! They are a nod to LP's old style but with a new vibe, fans of older LP songs especially will definitely like this). Might more bands like this emerge in the future? If so what will happen considering the solitary sound/genre of LP as I have asked above?
