Those clips you've heard? They're not techno. Stop saying it is.

    Use of electronics, specifically synths, does not automatically classify a song as techno.

    Sandstorm by Darude, which I'm sure the majority of you are getting this idea from, is also not techno. It is technically trance, although it in and of itself is not representative of THAT genre either.

    For comparison, here's some actual techno:

    If you see anyone calling these clips techno, please kindly direct them to this page. I will be here most operating hours to assist in informing anyone why these clips, while electronic in nature, are not techno.

    Thanks.

    Minus is right. There is a HUGE difference between Techno and using Electronic elements in a song.

    Correct if I'm wrong Minus/Hybrid/minuteforce, but this is another example of Techno:

    What I don't understand is people constantly bitching about the band embracing electronic music when the keyboard and synth loops are the most memorable parts. Think about it, how many guitar riffs have Linkin Park written that are actually distinctive? That someone could perform in their dorm and have everyone know exactly what song they were playing? Now think of the samples.

    I specified guitar riffs that an average person could recognize, not a fan.

    Very well, then.

    One Step Closer
    A Place For My Head
    Faint
    Qwerty

    Recognizable as fuck...
    I don't know any (post-Meteora) synth parts that are more recognizable than these riffs

    An average person wouldn't know the riff to QWERTY because it was not only never a single, it wasn't even on an album. I'm putting the guitar riff from Faint in dispute because I had a friend play it for me and I couldn't recognize it. Note, he was a damn good guitarist and that was back when I actually thought Meteora was decent. So One Step Closer and A Place for My Head. That's two. Counting only singles, that's one. Compared to the loops from:

    In the End
    Crawling
    Somewhere I Belong
    Numb
    Faint
    Lying from You
    What I've Done
    Shadow of the Day
    Leave Out All the Rest
    The Catalyst

    And if we limited it just to ultra-popular and iconic songs that everyone would know, then:

    In the End
    Crawling
    Somewhere I Belong
    Numb
    What I've Done
