Well then.



Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has spoken about comparisons between their new music and their debut album, 'Hybrid Theory'.

Speaking to Music Week, he said that, "When we made ‘Hybrid Theory’, I was the oldest guy in the band and in my early ’20s. That’s why I guess I’m like: ‘Why are we still talking about ‘Hybrid Theory’?"

"It’s fucking years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the fuck on. You know what I mean?”

Asked about people calling them sell-outs, he added: "I don’t care.”

“If you like the music, fantastic. If you don’t like it, that’s your opinion too. Fantastic. If you’re saying we’re doing what we’re doing for a commercial or monetary reason, trying to make success out of some formula… then stab yourself in the face!” 


Disclaimer: stabbing yourself in the face is never a good idea. Like really, please don't.

Here's LP's most recent video, for 'Good Goodbye'. It features Stormzy and Pusha T.

 
Here's 'One Step Closer' from 'Hybrid Theory', because any excuse.
