    Thrice - Atlantic?

    Didn't know he had it in him. One of the best songs ever made.

    All of them I like except U2. But you can't have everything, I guess.

    I'm surprised by this list. I never would've guessed that he listens to Tears For Fears, Oingo Boingo, or Ministry.

    Why's everybody saying this? In my opinion, U2 are the most accomplished and adventurous musicians out of the whole list. I don't know if artists like M.I.A. (although I like her) or Death Cab are ever going to make anything even close to being as groundbreaking - yes, I said groundbreaking - as Achtung Baby.

    I feel young again since he likes this one. Then again, I think I am still older than him and the rest of LP. :ph34r:

    Mike likes Thrice...

    That's the second time Thrice has been mentioned on LP Association. Mike nominated them for some kind of award (most creative album for the New Pantheon awards, or something like that) and so did Chester.

    I wish I could read his comments on the list, but it won't let me because I don't have iTunes or something like that. That's too bad because I really wanted to see why he listed Thrice, because I wanted to know if he really was a fan... then he'd be my new favorite member of Linkin Park.

    I wonder what Chester's favorite 15 songs are...

    Juelz Santana - "Mic Check (Edited Version)"
    "Santana is bananas! He got on our Fort Minor/Green Lantern mixtape...good guy, love the track.

    U2 - "Where The Streets Have No Name"
    "This is one of my favorite songs of all time. The Joshua Tree inspired me ina big way to make music that people can really relate to, lyrically. The universal messages in U2's music are one of the reasons I will always be a fan."

    Styles Of Beyond - "Mr. Brown"
    "S.O.B. is amazing. Their originality and humor are the reason we had to sign them to our label, Machine Shop Recording. They're on about half of the tracks on the Fort Minor album, The Rising Tied."

    Tears For Fears - "Everybody Wants To Rule The World"
    "This is my brother's favorite song, and one of my favorites. Such a unique and amazing track."

    Death Cab For Cutie - "Soul Meets Body"
    "In the past two years, I have just gotten into this band. There is a tone and personality to the lyrics and music that are so original. The video for this song is great, too.

    Thrice - "Atlantic"
    "I have been a fan of this band for a while, but never expected how amazing their new record is. Vheissu just might be a modern masterpiece."

    Wu Tang Clan - "Protect Ya Neck"
    "I remember getting my hands on the white label vinyl for this Wu0Tang song and thinking, 'this is the next level.' The beats and rhymes were so original.

    Oingo Boingo - "Just Another Day"
    "One of my favorite slept-on classics, by an amazing band."

    KRS One - "Illegal Business"
    "KRS was my idol when I was growing up, I think. This album, By All means Necessary, is a must-have for any Fort Minor fan."

    N.W.A. - "Gangsta, Gangsta"
    "When I was a kid, I thought Ice Cube was the toughest guy in the universe. My friends and I used to listen to this album and this song non-stop...if my parents had known, they would have killed me!"

    Ministry - "Thieves"
    "Check out the way the beat breaks down to the slower part. That's the golden loop right there."

    Jimi Hendrix - "Are You Experienced?"
    "If I had been there when this song came out, I imagine it would have completely blown my mind. Because even today, with all the cool effects we can use on a song, the experimentation on this song is still futuristic.

    The Police - "Roxanne"
    "One of the best songs of all-time!"

    A Tribe Called Quest - "Vibes & Stuff"
    "You gotta have some Tribe Called Quest in the iPod. This was the age of hip-hop when I really started getting into it, and was one of the times I went back to when I was making the Fort Minor album.

    Nine Inch Nails - "The Perfect Drug (Nine Inch Nails)"
    "I have pretty much every Nine Inch Nails song, including remixes (and remixes done for other groups). In lieu of putting Trent's Notorious B.I.G. / Diddy "Victory" remix on here, I went on this one, which is amazing as well.
