Your comments make me think of the following questions:NiTRO said:the majority of bands that portray anger in their music are in the fake anger category. Bands that are passionate about their message be it political or otherwise can do a nice job in authenticating their anger.
This is the criteria for authenticity? This is what makes you like them? I don't get it. Does this mean if someone from The Backstreet Boys becomes a drug addict, that they are "hardcore" too?snowgirl87 said:they are so a rock band.....chester had a drug addiction......that is so hardcore.....NOT.....boy band

Yeah, and possibly destroying your life and ruining your relationships and stealing from your family and catching HIV, and spreading HIV, and becoming homeless, blah, blah, blah, and possibly dying young. Sexy and hardcore.rogermexico said:the starmaking apparatus romanticizes "drug addiction". Like it has some sort of dark glamour instead of mostly involving lying to your friends, not being where you're supposed to be when you're supposed to be there, and getting all righteously self-dramatizing about it all.
Yes because every other band out there is completely unique and doesn't make anything like any other band, ever. Right.Adam said:I really try to hate Linkin Park, because they produce generic rubbish. But I just can't help but like some of their songs.
And yes, they are a band consisting of boys.
Just so's we're clear: bashing Linkin Pizzark has always been cool.Krit said:I like how you guys are bashing LP without reasoning. I guess it's the "cool" thing to do nowadays.
At least present reasoning behind your choice.
