If there’s one band that a generation scarred by nu-metal and rap-rock is willing to forgive, it’s Linkin Park.
After all, it’s one of the most successful rock groups of all time, hanging with the Eagles in terms of record sales. The band’s secret lies in its ability to transcend guilty-pleasure status.
These days, jaded indie rockers and granola kids (of a certain age) alike can probably recite the lyrics from 2000’s Hybrid Theory, 2002’s Meteora or even the band’s latest, Minutes to Midnight. That’s why Limp Bizkit sits at home while Linkin Park tours the nation reminding fans how to Shut up when I’m talking to you!
