Andra Lazarevic said:But realistically, MTM does mostly hold the same formula that made LP's nu-metal children so popular, but only in a more mainstream way. I was shocked with how much it sounded like Green Day and shit, and pissed with how many people actually compared the two. I think Frederic Evans makes a great point with Peppers: they have matured over the years and made different music, but kept their signature style, as opposed to LP who had completely changed their DNA. At first I thought MTM was made just to join the mainstream and sell more records, and was actually happy with that. That meant I could pray that MTM doesn't sell as well as the previous two, in which case LP would realise what prings the big bucks and make another album which I would orgasm upon hearing. My wish did come true, but...
Then came the Catalyst.
It is clear that they have stayed the same (MTM same) which reopens the "why they changed" question. And I think it became clear that they HAVE changed personally, and, alas, that leaves no hope. They have become what they've become, and there's nothing left to do now but to buy a Slipknot album.
Oh, almost forgot... Hate it.
Shut Up about Green Day. Green Day is an awsome band with amaysing songs. If u don't like them. Ok. Dont care. Green Day has made awsome songs. Their is nothing wrong with comparing Linkin Park to Green Day. I've seen people compare Linkin Park to bands like Three Days Grace, Metalica, Eminem. Hollywood undead, Limp Bizkit, Slipknot, Disturbed and Alot more. People compare Linkin Park to crappy bands like the Jonas Brothers (which i think is retarded but I don;t say something like that on a forum). If you don't like Green Day, dont bother to coment about them.
Here is the truth behind both Linkin Park and Green Day.
Linkin Park started as band who wanted to create music that was their own. They wanted people to identify their music as Linkin Park. Not nu metal or rap rock. They wrote Hybrid Theory. They never wanted to go mainstreet. If they did. They wouldn't mind. They then wrote Meteora. They did change a little bit. But musically the band was the same. When Minutes to Midnight came. They said that they have matured and they think diffrently. They were still LP but had changed their music. They said that they wern't doing HT and Metora anymore. THey wanted to explore new genres. They never wanted to go mainstreet. People should stop fucken saying that. Now, they are doing the same with A Thousand Suns. They think diffrently now. They want to try something new. I personaly hate the new single. THough I will decide if the album is good or bad when I here the rest.
Now about Green Day.
Green Day stated their started as a punk band. They wanted to join the punk scene. Their first two albums started their carrer and they got recodnized. They then released dookie. Their album was what made them join the punk scene. The folow up albums to dookie, they continued their punk genre but explored new genres two. Then came American Idiot. Now the band wanted to do something new. They wanted to create an epic record. They didnt want to be part of the punk scene anymore. They wanted to do something new. This led to the creation of American Idiot. Then came their most recent album. 21st Century Breakdown. They now wanted to do something new again. This is how 21stCB came to be.
My point is, bands mature. Their thoughts change. So they create new music. Both Linkin Park and Green Day NEVER wanted to go mainstreet. Their musical thoughs just changed.
Also, People don't compare LP's and GD's music. They just ask which band do they think is better. Linkin Park and Green Day share a lot of fans. Green Day and Linkin Park's music can't be compared. They are two diffrent genres.
Also, both bands wanted to change their sound. Why? because they matured. Their not the only band to do that.
Both bands try to please their fans or gain new ones. They do not expect everyone to like their music.
People wrealy need to shut up and leave this all to rest.
