    I see even the great, all-knowing Minus can't detect all forms of sarcasm.

    I'm not sure what the speech is about in Victimized. All I know is it always brings back thoughts of When They Come for Me.

    But Chester doesn't scream anything like screamers in hardcore music. Apples to oranges my friend.

    I will say that Given Up's bridge is arguably powerful enough to be heavier than Victimized, but unlike Victimized it doesn't last for 1:47.

    I have no idea what that speech is about. I opened the song on Audacity and listened to it backwards and also at a very slow speed but I still couldn't figure out anything besides 'Linkin Park', and 'back' like someone said, and something like 'we're the only ones'. But I have no idea.

    It's definitely one of the hardest LP tracks. I'm not sure if it's the hardest one. QWERTY just blew my mind away when I heard it for the first time.

    People tend to forget 'Hit the Floor'. Yes, I know for most LP fans it's one of the weakest LP tracks (I don't really dislike it) but it's also very very powerful.

    QWERTY & No More Sorrow. The bridge from From The Inside is pretty bad ass as well.

    Anyone else feel like this is this albums When They Come For Me? It feels like a punk track poking fun at the LP fans who are butthurt about HT/Meteora.

    It's probably distasteful to make fun of actual LP fans. I take it more as a statement to the various bloggers and the parts of the media in general that decry Linkin Park's new direction.

    But, that said, I don't really think this song is in the same vein as Mike's verse in WTCFM. I took it more as a general statement of resistance to a dominant person/group in one's life.

    You want a victim?
    I'ma put you there with 'em.

    The main reason I was asking is because of the line

    "As this siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm"

    Waiting For The End reference?

    this was a real treat for the hybrid theory fans.
    the lyrics arent too cheesy and wasnt ruined like the end of blackout.
    definitely my favorite track

    The track is awesome, and I like the end, but ATS should have a ''firecracker'' record like Victimized is, and that would be it.

    I just thought, you guys think they'll play Victimized in Bleed it Out like they did with A Place For My Head?

    This. I do enjoy the end of Blackout, but ATS would have been a stronger album without that.
