Internet hatred of Linkin Park

All the message boards I visit always seem to have the same theme: hating Linkin Park. Well, to be fair, I haven't noticed it here, but everywhere else I visit! I understand people have different tastes in music, but what's with all the hate? If anyone can explain it to me, that'd be great. Thanks =D

Well I for one don't like them because I can't stand their music. All the songs sound the same, much like every other Nu Metal act. Basically, the blonde haired rapper says something then the black hair guy says something. Or vice versa. Either way, it sucks.

Theres this big thing about "Nu-Metal" or whatever the heck it is. I don't see it. They are a talented bunch of guys, and I am happy for them.

Let it be known that I have home-town favoritism for them. Two of the members, well the two FOUNDING members of linkin park are from my hometown. Hell, one of them is the same age as my sister.

I like them, personally. I think that people just hate anybody that gets too "main-stream". You have to hate someone in order to keep the angst-ridden edge, right?

I like Linkin Park. But like zfOenix said, some people probably dislike them because they got to main-stream for them, or as BulletBob said. Maybe they are an aquired taste. At first I didn't like them because there was all the Limp Bizkit crap going around, and I just was totally against anything rappy sounding, but after finally listening to them, I liked them.

I have to agree with BulletBob, even though i dont hate Linkin Park I must say they get a bit repetitve. With the amount of albums LP sells the internet hatred thing cant hurt them to much.

it's the fact that a lot of people won't accept anything mainstream. My brother denies it, but he refuses to listen to anything mainstream. Linkin Park is evolving in their own direction, but peole accuse them of being the ones following trends, when it's really the other way around.

I listen to plenty of mainstream music, Linkin Park just doesn't tickle my fancy. There are several bands such as Linkin Park, 3 Doors Down, Creed, or Staind that people either hate or love, no in between. Personally, i'd take 3 Doors Down over all those.

A lot of people take music very seriously, and instead of being open to all genre's they tend to be close minded and stick to one genre. So in general its personal preference but is determinded by how open minded the person is. I think they are repeative and would prefer to change the station or whatnot.

it's the guitar guy. that guy does not deserve to be in a band. quite simply, he sucks at his instrument. he plays the same boring, repetitive power chord shit that everyone else does. if only they ditched him, they'd be going places.

everyone whom I chat with online havn't changed their opinions on linkin park, so when hybrid came out, the people who loved that, love Meteora. And vice versa. and I think the remix album was a total bomb anyways so no one talks about it.

While I havent heard much of the new album, or the old one, I don't have a hatred for Linkin Park. I Like Mr. Hahn.. he seems pretty cool form what i've seen of him. I also somewhat like their cg'ed videos.. but the music has some harmony to it. That cant be all taht bad. Eventually all music sounds repetitive.. we all share a collected subconscious anyway..so If you've heard one band, you've literally heard them all.. (at some point in your life)

I really like LP. Im not a metal or hip hop fan, but they have somehting that draws me to them. I loved Hybrid Theory, hated the remixes, and mixed about their new CD. They are starting to sound the same, but usually its pretty good. Hahn is definitely the best out of the whole group. Dont hate on LP.

I dig the band a lot.. I don't really listen to the words, I think they are a bit corny, and I think all their songs basically sound the same, but something in their music makes me want to play their CD's over and over again.

yeah, what he said. i will give them this, however, they are one of the bands that gave birth to the whole nü metal trend. i personally can't stand them. as others have stated, their songs all sound the same. booooooooring.

Not me. I couldn't stand Linkin Park back when I heard their first song. I have to agree with BulletBob, I can't tell them apart from any of the other "metal" bands that MTV likes to play (when they actually play music).

I never liked them... I just hated how they were always listed, for some reason, as one of the great "rock" bands of our time, even though they're just as much RAP as they are ROCK. Personally, I think that as for the whole rock-band-with-a-DJ thing, there are FAR better bands than Linkin Park... the one the REALLY stands out to me is Lostprophets... not only is their music more rock than Linkin Park, their DJ is more inventive with what he does.

I believe im open to all music and I can see a couple of OK things about LP (the occasional good pop-hook).
But my biggest gripe is just total unoriginality. All of these numetal bands seem to copy each other from the number of singers and their roles to the gear and guitars the members use. THEY ARE ALMOST ALWAYS THE SAME

-A singer who raps and one who sings
-Guitarists who used to use 7 string Ibanez guitars who now use PRS'
-Using Mesa Dual Rectifier amps
-Having a DJ with poor skills
-Singing about teen angst

How can I take the music seriously, and how can a fan be satisfied (well, beyond fleeting enjoyment) if its been done soooooooooooooooooooo many times, and their follow up album Meteora is almost exactly the same.

To me Linkin Park isnt a band, they are a buisness.

That's pretty much how I feel too. They're no different than every Boy Band out there. They suck. Always have and always will.

lp is loved by teenagers. i wouldn't say it's because teens have bad tastes in music, it's just that lots of people identify with the lyrics. the musical themes are repetitive but it's a formula that works for them.

the only LP songs I have ever listened to are the ones on their new album Meteora. I downloaded every one of them and burned them to disc as b-day present for one of my nephews (age 16). I was thoroughly unimpressed with them.

the rap/rock fusion they are calling Nu-metal is the hair metal of the current generation. If history is any indication, this trend wont last longer than another 2-3 years, max. Neither will 99% of these bands.

I dont like them for the simple fact that they are played out. Everywhere i go i hear one of their songs and after a week it all sounds the same.

That and the guy who tries to rap in their songs. In my opinion it doesn't fit, maybe if they got rid of him i'd listen to their stuff. Until then i'll look elsewhere for some good tunes.

Big fan, simply because they were playing when memorable things in my life happened. Music in general takes little "skill" to me, beyond knowing what people will like -- I'm the opposite of the mainstream haters. If you can't get a large crowd of people who like you, then you probably suck. To me, garnering huge support means that you've got a universal appeal, not that you're a sell out.

I am a casual listener. I don't own a CD but have a couple of their songs on my MP3 player and listen to them on the radio. I am not above buying their CD though, I might one day. As far as people not liking certain bands that get to mainstream, I agree. I saw it a lot in college. People who don't like mainstream also don't like anything older than say a year old too.

I don't justify my tastes. You're welcome to do your own thing. I know that there is no Linkin Park on my playlist for a reason; I just don't like them.

I do know that them beign called metal is pissing off a lot of old metalheads. Linkin Park is not metal. Linkin Park is emo with a bit of hip hop thrown in. There are no metal elements to their sound.
