Linkin Park Frontman: 'We're Not a Metal Band'
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.17.2014



Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington recently spoke with Team Rock Radio about criticism of the band from metal fans and more. Check out the highlights:

On criticism by metal fans that they aren't really a metal band: "It doesn't hurt, because I don't think we're a metal band either. That was actually something that we kind of intentionally wanted to make clear from the very beginning when we were kind of tagged as a 'nu metal' band. Not that we have anything against metal. It's like a facial expression, or like an emotion. It's like someone saying, 'He's an angry person.' And you're, like, 'I can be nice. I can be loving and I can be sensitive.' That's kind of how we feel about ourselves with our music. We aren't just one thing. So there are elements of the band that are metal, there are elements of the band that are pop, there are elements that are electronic, and hip-hop as well. And we've kind of always felt like we weren't bound to just one genre. So after we made Hybrid Theory and Meteora, we really wanted to take risks beyond what we had already done on those first two records, creatively, and show the world that we can do a lot more than just make nu-metal songs."

On the new album being a change from the last couple of albums: "We can write a thousand "Iridescents" and, as great as they are, it's going to be boring. With this album it was more like the opposite… it's fucking crazy the whole time."
