Tuesday Trivia: Killing in the name of…

Killing in the name of

So, what do you get when you combine Metallica and Linkin Park? St. Anger? Kind of, but not what I’m talking about. Summer Sanitarium tour 2003? Well, that happened, but again, not the point of this article. What exactly is the point of this article?

Actually, this piece of trivia doesn’t have a direct correlation between the two. There’s a third party involved which is the bond. I know you’re interested, well read on.


Friday Top 10: Heavy metal soap operas, part 2

What, you thought last Friday’s Top 10 was the only one? Ha, you wish! Just like a proper soap, we’re popping out endless sequels. Well, maybe not endless, because I plan to wrap it up with this one, but who knows when this topic will come back from the dead.

Make the jump and read ten more never-ending and/or soapy and/or embarrassing stories from the world of metal.


Brad Delson = God

Everybody knows Brad Delson is a guitar God. But we also told you he’s a multi-instrumentalist genius a while ago, which is all true. Linkin Park‘s music being mostly made with Mike Shinoda‘s Macbook, there’s little to do for this amazing guitar God on stage but to just play around with other instruments.

Please, just watch the video below… It’s a performance from SNL, God knows what song cause who cares, right? But check out Brad Delson. HE IS THE WHOLE SHOW!


Can’t get enough of Linkin Park?

Linkin Park's riff machine

Then you’ll be happy to read this — the band is teaming up with a group of “official bootleggers,” to bring you their live experiencedirectly after the show.

Rockers Linkin Park have teamed up with a group of official bootleggers to make sure fans attending their upcoming shows get a live recording of the concert – for free.

The complimentary download of will be available to fans who simply send a text message to a short code displayed at each venue. A link will then be emailed to them following the concert.

“Official bootleg.” That sounds wrong to me, like “Rockers Linkin Park,” or “Linkin Park the band.” But, hopefully more bands pick this up so we get less people with their phones making unusable recordings and me getting annoyed by it. See an example after the jump (warning: you’re about to get a dose of Linkin Park’s Live Experience).


Chester has an opinion.

Every time a tragedy occurs, you get an onslaught of celebrities commenting on the event in the press, as if anyone really cares what they think.

To be fair to Chester Bennington, he’s not a celebrity, so his commenting on the recent Arizona shooting makes sense. Especially since he’s also from Arizona, so, you know, he must ‘get’ it.

We live in a crazy world. There’s no explanation for it. I personally feel that violence and war and murder are primitive, and I think that we’ve evolved as a species beyond that. Unfortunately some people still feel that’s a means to an end

Read full interview here.

I’d take Chester a bit more seriously if he didn’t have two huge earrings with the symbol of death on them. Or if he wasn’t responsible for either this, this, this or this. But I know what he means.

When asked if he’d make an exception and get primitive on Mike Shinoda’s ass for turning Linkin Park into Daft Punk, Chester had no comment.
