"The Catalyst" Music Video Premiere

When coming up with the idea for our new music video, "The Catalyst," I thought of the end of the world. What would it be like if someone could push a button to decide our fate? What would it feel like if we accept our fate in the moment of devastation? How would we celebrate our one final living moment?

Check out the world premiere of the video for "The Catalyst" at MTV.com and VH1.com, and then go HERE and let me know what you think.

While i was watching the video, i felt something so true and sweet, as the video which wholeheartedly completes the song, has a deeply touching sense. And by that time i was totally submerged by that upset fact: Those threats are just leading human kind to " the moment of devastation".
Anyway, again, I feel so proud to be a Linkin Park fan. Who else could widely spread the words deep inside like you guys?
*I cried. I feel something deep in my throat that i totally cannot swallow. LP is officially back, back for me to be on my way shouting out your another marvelous work!*

really like your quote Joe xD "What

Love the video and love the song. Wonderful lyrics. With so many things happening in the world today, I wish everyone could just learn to get along. Life is too short to waste it all in anger and hatred. Looking forward to get the album. I hope it will be superb! Great job guys. Love LP since the beginning.

It was definatly fitting! That has made me say "Only Linkin Park does such a great video" I totally loved it! Although it was scary at some parts, specially the parts of Chester in the water. Still didn't quite get every symbol in the video, but thatz because I just slept 1 hour and woke up then to watch The Catalyst premire on MTV lol.

But well, you did see the topic of the video, about apocalypse. The destroyed buildings and the color of the video in general and the gas were totally hinting at it and gave the lyrics another meaning. Also the Lift me up, let me go part then, which made me even shiver more there, cuz it's like a desperate cry for hope then to get out of this darkness, out of the apocalypse. The drowning part of Chester, where he is in the ocean and only gets his head out a bet and mostly crying is supporting totally that topic, that you can really drown in such darkness, that you can't find your way out. Also the try to change this world by making it more colorful is also really cool =) I love it a lot. U did an awesome job there!

Still don't get the symbol of the gas masked dudes, who get beat up, but it's nice to see some old characters like the gas masked dude to appear again =) Also I don't get the symbol of Mike in the car stretching out this hand, but I guess that it means "Hold on, you still got one more chance" and then the color fight begins. Would make it logical for me and would fit for the hope part mentioned above .

Anyways, I LOVED it! It's really great!

And I have already my wish how to spend the final living moments, but it's 18+ lol hahahaha
