    I don't like it because the music is watered down and tame.

    I like metalcore, however, because the music isn't necessarily watered down and can be a substantial genre free of mainstream qualities (when it wants to be).

    frankly it all sounds like less complex rehashed Metalica riffs with grunt/runt vocals to me.... oh yea... and you must use the word fuck at least once a minute or your just not cool, the more you use it the cooler you are........ lol

    Good post JHJ and very par for the course of the music industry since at least the 50's.

    But their lyrics are all about teenage depression, and emo bands like them.

    "Oh noes i dunz fit in".
    "oh noez i got dumped"
    "oh noez I cant get a girl!"
    "Waaah. Im gunna cut mah wristz"

    As opposed to stuff like "I've got no job and a baby to support and it's christmas."

    They talk more about the feeling, not really what causes it. I don't think LP ever talked about cutting wrists, or getting dumped or any of that stuff.

    Anyway its a pointless arguement I have seen a million times. And it never goes anywhere and just ends up wasting space.

    And on the Nu-Metal being Metal subject. I think Nu-Metal lacks the drive or bounce that Metal has.

    No, Linkin Park are more about not fitting in, and feeling awkward.

    "Crawling in my skin"
    I got a face on the inside laughing at me or something.
    I won't be ignored.

    Couple of the Linkin park lyrics I remember from my time of listening to them.

    Those are Hawthorne Heights lyrics. I was comparing their songwriting to Linkin Park's.

    Don't care for Linkin Park,etc.... they drive around in escalades and torture people,etc... because they bitch n complain. And no one probably knows why.

    Nah, you could have posted this on the Metal page. For what it's worth, the scene was the last time Rock was relevant to the public. Shortly after the decline of the genre Rap/R n' B reared its ugly head and Rock has never been the same since.

    The bands in general weren't bad and some nailed some good tunes. Limp Bizkit in particular was a good group and Chocolate Starfish was a good album. A much maligned scene which had its moments.
