Interesting. It reminds me of U2's Verigo without the simplistic effects. I like it.
I dont know what to the think of it They are playing the song like its some heavy trash metal song, while its a pretty mellow song compared to the other songs they've written
i tried to d/l it but itunes says that it is no longer avaliable
BEST LINKIN PARK VIDEO YET.
I dunno ... the video is very good .. but they look so different :s
you said it. and many are going to agree
..im one of them!!
for those with itunes is the single still available?
just saw it all on youtube......pretty good...
i still feel pains in my chest at any of the 9/11 clips tho
i tried and it said no it was not
edit: actually it is working now!
thanks ^^im going to download it asap. Finally the wait will be over...as for the video im going to wait to see it on fuse or on youtube even though I heard that Warner is taking down all WID official videos
Does Mike actually play guitar in this song or is it just for him to be in the video?
haha yes he is if you listen there's two guitar parts in the song, not counting the bass. that'd be kinda funny if it was just for the sake of him being in the video.
hey what're the chances of LP's youtube channel uploading the WID music video?
I love love LOVE this video!
I agree with Omar, definitely the best LP video yet.
First time, long time, yada yada...
Something to keep in mind regarding the potential album content, the theme of the album, and this first video: Almost all of the images (excluding the band) had to deal with events or patterns in society that contribute to the Doomsday Clock analysis.
It exists primarily as a gauge with nuclear war, and nuclear images are very prominent in this video. So while the actual song may be fairly ambiguous in "what they've done," it's the perfect launching pad for the whole album.
This likely isn't the best song on the album. In fact, I highly doubt that it is. Instead, it's an accessible, catchy song that helps create more buzz for the new sound, new messages, and new look of Linkin Park.
And on that level, it is very, very successful. And very cool.
Definitely two guitar parts in the song. You can hear it more clearly during the mini-solo that acts as a sort of bridge.
Also, since he was directing, Joe Hahn was only in a few pieces of the video. However, I think it's clear that the piano/keys part comes out of Mr. Hahn's synth/turntable and not from Mike's piano. I'm betting that Shinoda plays the guitar live, unless...
Well, let's just say that this song could easily be part of an acoustic set alongside the likes of "Pushing Me Away," "Breaking the Habit," and "My December."
Now that's an impressive acoustic set!
Just bought the single!
The song is amazing, the video looks great!
Will Linkin Park update to a new site soon?
OMG I SAW IT IT IS AMAZING, I WANT TO SEE IT ON MY TV, BUT IT PROBABLY WONT BE ON MM CUZ ITS TOO OFFENSIVE! - thats what my bro says
The song has slowly grown on me all day.
As for the video, I really really like it for one reason: it's really different from their other videos. I don't even really mean in the politics side of it (which I actually really do like in the video.) It's more that they're really just playing music like an average joe and not trying to act like total badasses.
Take the One Step Closer video for example. Now, I know that was their first video and they were weren't really sure what audience they wanted. Still, they looked like a freaking metal band with Mike's hair and whatever the heck those zombie things were in the video. Now look at the In the End video. There were all these special effects trying to make them look cool. And don't even get me started on the Points of Authority remix video....
But this video is my new favorite, beating out Faint. I really liked the video for Faint because they were playing like normal and the silhouettes were so sweet. But this video is just amazing because it forgets about trying to appear "cool" and they just play their guitars and hit the drums and....whatever Mr Hahn does. And it's amazing for some strange reason.
Well, that was a pointlessly long post...
You can hear Mike playing lead throughout the whole song.
The only time he's not playing lead (I would assume) is when Brad's playing the solo.
I'm also pretty sure this is one of those songs where Mike's going from the keyboard to the guitar. It doesn't show it in the video (because there's no need to).
But it'd be impossible for Joe to scratch and play a keyboard rhythm live, unless it was prerecorded. And the band doesn't do that.
No man, dont get down on yourself i agree with you man. LP ROCKS!
EARPHONES ARE GONE!!! AHHH!!!!11one!!!shift!!!
MIKE LOOKS LIKE LUDACRIS
that's pretty deep for a linkin park video. damn.
Hmm.. anyone notice they used the same clip from Nine Inch Nails' Right Where it Belongs video? The one they played during their concerts? Maybe it's just a popular clip or something, but the only other place I've seen it was NIN's performance.
