Foo Fighters aren't that special.
Foos are great instrumentists but songs are all similar ... I mean ATS is honestly better than most of their records IMO
Saying LP isn't popular is very wrong. They're, in fact, one of the most popular bands in the world. The people may not know the new songs, but the name "Linkin Park" is very big and 'everyone' recognizes.
THP was not Huge for The reasons we all know ( no radio friendly lead single , lack of promotion,...) but LT and ATS were still huge selling records with songs reaching 70/80 million views on YT (COG;The Catalyst,BID) so i would not say they are not popular they Just are less than 10 yrs ago
It's kind of one of those things you either get or don't get, but how I'd describe it is, most people look at LP the way some of you (and myself) look at acts like Limp Bizkit and, IDK, Hollywood Undead. To put it simply, they see LP as a stock-standard nu-metal band and they hate nu-metal.
Simultaneously, actual "fans" hate that LP transcended that label and started making good music.
Foos are awesome. End of.
I can understand Muse (although even as a huge Muse fan, I wouldn't put them ahead of LP), they've put out an amazing range of music, from the almost prog-rock of OoS, to the symphonic Exogenesis, to the electro tinged Madness/Follow Me/Unsustainable, but it's the ridiculous love of bands like the Foo Fighers and the Artic Monkeys by the same music "fans" that bash LP that never ceases to amaze me. I actually love both of these bands, but there's a reason why the Foos are often described as "Dad Rock". As much as I enjoy listening to both of these bands, I personally prefer bands who can do a bit more than Guitar/Bass/Drums/Catchy Vocals, mixed together in the same way in almost every song. While I love these bands for what they do, I find it so hypocritical that music "fans" will shun a band like LP because of what they associate with the name, and not because of what the music sounds like. I don't believe that you can objectively rate one thing over another when it comes to music, but to me, an album like ATS will always be orders of magnitude more interesting than anything the Foos have put out.
Totally agree ... ATS is one of the most under rated albums of the last 10 years
Damn if LP do, damn if they don't
I hate that , Just few hrs ago i was discussing with my cousin and he said " Linkin Park making a mellow record ? Impossible , they are a heavy band Just like KORN ..." Fuck i hate this
yeah, because Hybrid Theory and Meteora was such "hard" records
This is pretty cool. It seems like exactly what we need after THP.
Yea Michele we don ' t realize that LP is, was and will always be a heavier copy of Korn , we are so blind
What i wanted to say is: LP isnt really hard compared to other bands, even in "their own genre". Not that this is bad, but cmon, you cant really say LP is really heavy (maybe if you are an angsty 14 years old teen )
I got it Michele
Do you guys think we are gonna get a song in a copule of months ? I hope so
GATS was released in March, the album came in June.
The album will come out in late fall / early winter iirc. so i would think, irst song in August.
I hope u r not right Michele but I fear you are
I fear it too
Depends on what you're comparing it to I guess. In the overall grand scheme of things, any band that's released songs like By Myself, Given Up, and War is very definitely a very heavy band, but compared to certain more specific genres of music (like Metal), I can see your point.
What I'm trying to say, is that if you were to take 100 random pieces of music, across random genres, pop, rap, classical, traditional, rock, techno, whatever, the vast majority wouldn't be heavier than an album like THP.
