True... forgot that Nobody Can Save Me was the first song on the album
Time for...Good Goodbye?
Cure for the itch was the song that really got me hooked at the time. It was after hearing In the end and possibly Crawling on MTV and maybe From the Inside. I got this burned cd of Hybrid Theory back in the day from my cousin who kinda looks like Chester tbh and sometimes I think they might be related. And I listened to it from start to finish but interestingly enough I was truly amazed when cure for the itch played. I was into electronic music at the time and when I heard this song I was like "oh shit this is my new thing now. I just found GOLD" HAHA and from that I knew my life was changed forever. My ears were open from that day basically.
I'm here! Though it's been so long that I barely even remember what we're supposed to do in this thread. Give our opinions on the songs I guess?
NCSM? One word: chipmunks
Besides that, like the lyrics and the vocals, but not exactly my favorite song.
Yeah, under normal circumstances we would get always wall of texts to each song so we can discuss it on 2 to 3 pages
Since I've now passed 3k posts I can finally give my opinion on Nobody Can Save Me:
It's one of my favorite songs from the band and just in general. With a perfect mix of wub-wub and distorted guitars, neither drowning the other out it makes for a really interesting sound. Combined with good synths, great lyrics, and a runtime that really let's the song grow and evolve it makes for a great song.
Dang y'all are really letting me feel the heat rn
I've got a lot of stuff going on in my life otherwise I would be all over starting on Good Goodbye. I have half a draft somewhere.
My thoughts on Nobody Can Save Me:
The chipmunk sound is absolutely awful and horribly unnecessary. However, the rest of the song is extremely strong. It's a nice dramatic poprock song; great melodies, chord progression, all the essential stuff. However if I had to choose a cheesy poprock song, I'd pick ones without cringeworthy chipmunk vocals, like Battle Symphony (where the "chipmunk" sounds aren't really vocals, they really just sound like a synth part, and it sounds great).
The chipmunk sounds at the beginning of Battle Symphony is a vocal. Someone asked Chester about that on Twitter years ago and that's what he said.
Nobody Can Save Me will always have a special place for me. I was on holiday, the album was released on my birthday (May 19th). I remember sitting on my hotel balcony in Bulgaria, sun out, overlooking the beach, no care in the world, just vibing to this song for the first ever time. I'm probably just talking nonsense, but people say songs can bring you back to a moment in time. This song brings me back to that moment in time. It's a good feeling.
TL;DR - this is a cool song
