    How are these unpopular? Actually there's a wide audience within the fanbase who think LITE's potential was unfulfilled due to poor publicity and that the overall album promotion was mismanaged.

    I guess that means my opinion that Lost In The Echo was never destined to do that well as a single is an unpopular opinion.

    I just don't think a rap/rock jam out song is appealing to a very wide audience anymore. Burn It Down sounds/is structured much more like a pop dance song featuring a rapper, which is what is on the radio a lot nowadays. So that + the NBA finals = A successful single.

    I think Powerless had a lot of wasted potential as a single. It probably shouldn't have been tethered to a subpar movie with a kind of niche audience.

    I agree, but it's pretty understandable why LP fans would think that "Echo" had a lot of potential as a single.

    I really don't like A Place for My Head and I really like Crawling.

    Come at me, LPA.

    That's not really unpopular. Many people agree with you actually.

    Linkin Park live shows aren't that visually interesting. They still sound great.
    Somewhere I Belong has a nice instrumental.
    Linkin Park should do more acoustic/piano tracks.

    I love "Crawling" and "In the End".
    Meteora is awesome.
    LIVING THINGS is awesome.
    Minutes to Midnight and A Thousand Suns are the best albums.
    "Don't Stay" sounds nothing like "One Step Closer".
    "Fallout" serves as a good bridge between "Iridescent" and "The Catalyst", but does barely anything else.
    "Victimized" would have been better if it wasn't so overproduced and "perfect".
    Rob should be given more credit.
    Joe did nothing on Minutes to Midnight (and that doesn't really bother me).
    "Burning in the Skies" is the best Linkin Park music video.
    Dead by Sunrise is great.

    And on it goes...
