1. I’m sorry the song made you rage, but this post is hilarious. And, I completely agree! I can’t stand Linkin Park (or Nickelback or Creed) either.

      Jina, you sound like my kind of people. At the end of the day, all I really want is for Linkin Park to elicit the same kind of hatred Nickelback does.

      • The fact that you don’t understand what they have been through makes me want to pull YOUR vocal cords out so you can’t rant about dumb shit. Linkin Park has inspirational lyrics, and Chester Bennington, the lead singer, has a unique sound that amazes me. They have explored a new genre that is interesting and sounds great. If they suck so bad, tell me why you bother listening to there lyrics enough to quote them? Huh? There lyrics have meaning and purpose. What I’ve done is about what we’ve done to the world, how we have made mistakes, and how he wants to fix them all. The whole band has a great sound, and is cooperative enough to stay together. So u can take your rant back with you to the rock your living under and try to understand and comprehend the complexity of Linkin Park.

          Oh no, I’ve angered another Linkin Park fan!

          I actually haven’t “been listening to their lyrics enough to quote them,” as I either tune out or switch stations whenever one of their songs comes on, because I just can’t. Don’t like the sound, don’t like his voice, as I mentioned before. It annoys me. Like, I want to stick burning hot needles into my eyeballs whenever I hear a Linkin Park song. I Googled some of their lyrics to see what all the hype was about. Not impressed. So, yeah. I still maintain they suck. But you like them, and that’s cool, since you’re the one who’s voluntarily listening to them.

  2. I have no beef with Linkin Part. But man, I’m glad somebody else never liked Destiny’s Child! Creed sucks, too. (But not Creed Bratton.)

    And I’m just going to throw this out there: Rihanna kind of gets on my nerves. And Maroon 5.

    • sarahvb2

      Yeah, while I do like some Rhianna and Maroon 5 songs, it only amounts to one or two from each new album. And then I start to hate those because they are so over-played. The few songs of Rhianna’s I’ve heard that have gotten either no or very little air play, I actually liked. I felt like they were more “real” than the “Disturbias” or “S&M”-type songs that get so played out, if that makes sense.

      I’m glad I found someone who didn’t like Destiny’s Child! The only song I legitimately liked by them was “Bills Bills Bills.” The rest of their music, specifically “Bootylicious” and “Independent Women” made me want to kill myself.

      And Creed Bratton is always awesome. 😉

  3. HATE Creed, Nickelback and POD. I have gone back and forth with Linkin Park. I didn’t like them when they first came out, then they grew on me some, then I hated them again, then I was forced to listen to them a lot and started liking them again. Now I class them with bands like Green Day and Sublime that I don’t necessarily hate; I just can’t stand to listen to them. I change the channel if they come on. Their last cd really sucked balls…even more than the previous stuff.

    I still stand by what I said on Facebook yesterday…this is the best blog post I have ever read. I love how you compared their lyrics to Nickelback and they lost. Haha. Well argued Sarah. 🙂

    • sarahvb2

      Yeah, I always change the channel when a Linkin Park song comes on, unless I’m zoned out, like yesterday. Glad you liked the post! I had to get all my rage out. 🙂 Also, thanks for liking my Facebook page!

  4. Damn you, Sarah B! I used to love LP back in the day…I totally agree they’re overplayed, but I still love them from the ol’ days. Nickelback, I can get behind you 200%…Can we still be frands?! LOL

    If you can send me a video of yourself producing better music than Linkin Park then I will agree with you. Would one of the reasons that you hate them so much be because they pull off rap/rock so well?

    • sarahvb2

      Alas, I cannot, so you got me there.Linkin Park wouldn’t bug me nearly as much if radio stations didn’t over-play them and if their songs didn’t sound so similar. But I stand by my entry. I will, forever and always, hate their music with a passion.

    • freddiemercury

      I LOL’d at ‘they rap and rock really well. They suck at it, you just don’t wanna accept it. Also, you don’t have to be a musician yourself to point out crap music. It’s like saying that you cannot judge Michael bay as a director if you’re not a film director.


    I never really liked rock music but when I listened to linkin park it changed everything. And ummm… You don’t want to do that to the lead singer because you don’t really know his personality. It’s okay with me that you don’t like linkin park and what you wrote does have a point. It didn’t changed my mind though ( as I’m typing this I’m listing to them). What do you?

    • sarahvb2

      That’s cool. I’m not trying to change anybody’s mind over this. People like what they like. I like a few bands (read:DMB) who are the punchlines of more than a few jokes. Different strokes for different folks.

      I still hate Linkin Park, though.

    I think good and bad music is subjective.. it would depend on your perception and how you interpret that music. I don’t think anyone can make that a fact, because we will always have a different perception.

  8. Ashley

    That sucks that you don’t like them. But you’re allowed that. I would love to know what radio stations you’ve been listening to though because I’ve never heard a Linkin Park song on the radio. Also, have you maybe considered the fact that you don’t like them because you’ve been listening to the same few songs over and over again? Radio stations do love to repeat the same 2 songs over and over again. Does not necessarily mean that they don’t have any other good songs.

    You think their lyrics are crap, fine. Let me remind you that there are rappers who have worse lyrics and yet America has made them so popular and people like Beyonce (who almost never writes her own songs) are practically worshiped here. Linkin Park has helped me at a time when I thought there wasn’t anyone on my side. I could relate. Lyrics like:

    I don’t know who to trust, no surprise
    Everyone feels so far away from me
    Heavy thoughts sift through dust and the lies
    Trying not to break
    But I’m so tired of this deceit
    Every time I try to make myself
    Get back up on my feet
    All I ever think about is this
    All the tiring time between
    And how trying to put my trust in you
    Just takes so much out of me

    So if some band’s music is not your style and you cannot understand why people like them, well then, move on? Lol. People are different. Don’t blame America. Trust me, there are so many bands that you have never heard of that the rest of the world loves. So next time you space out to a Linkin Park song, instead of writing a rant blog, try thinking about why you didn’t come out of that zone sooner if their music disgusts you so much. Lol! *My rant over*

    I know this post is pretty old at this point, but what do you think of their other songs besides their typical “CRAWLLING IN MAH SKINNNN” and “I TRIED SO HARDDDDDDDD” singles? For example, Breaking the Habit (probably their best single), the last half of Minutes to Midnight, and A Thousand Suns?
