    Whoever sanctioned this needs to be shot out of a cannon.

    What a fucking ridiculous idea, it makes me feel embarressed to be a Linkin Park fan.

    Taking this way too seriously.

    Does anybody know how to enjoy something at face value? I imagine it's purely tongue in cheek.

    So judging by the fact Joe Hahn just linked to this thread (Hi Joe!) and said "they used to ask our permission to do this stuff", I'm guessing the band isn't quite happy that this is being done and that Warner did it without their consent. Unless of course Joe was only trolling and they signed off on it.

    I don't think he'd joke about something like that. But I was thinking to myself that how the hell did LP sign off on something as stupid and ridiculous as this.

    I've updated the news post to reflect Joe's disgust/disappointment in this. If anybody on staff can edit the "twitter" link to have an exact link to Joe's tweet referencing this it'd be appreciated. I'm at work.

    This makes me approve of their current record label even less. Gotta love record labels who use their bands' musical for things without their permission for profit and gain. I wonder if the band is even getting a kickback from this? LP needs to finish out their contract and go independent fast. They're the biggest band on Facebook, I think they can survive without a label.

    I agree Derek. I was relieved to see that Tweet from Joe though. To think that the band would approve of something like this is cringe-worthy...

    This irritates most of LP's fanbase. It must be good. :kappa:

    I don't know, I think it's funny, but if Joe Hahn is saying Linkin Park didn't give consent since this project is Warner funded, it seems like it could start some trouble. I guess it's a marketing scheme, though, since the album's coming out, a good way to market is to put out a viral video. However effective it is, we'll have to wait and see.

    So I guess I'll just re-post what I wrote in the first page, shall I?

    What an awful thing. Haha omgosh.
    Warner doesn't know how to make more money, do they?
    Using part of Joe's comment, I'm offended lyrics will be attributed to crappy cheap horror scenes like that. Is artistical blasphemy. What's even the point?

    EDIT: I dunno what the band thinks of this, but it reminds me of Dean Koontz, when they wanted to do a film out of his novel, and when they started to twist the story around, he just said to put out his name from the film, 'cause that was not his story anymore.
    Now, we know how labels uses their "products" as they want with or without approval from the source itself, but I just hope this ridicolousness won't have a gramm of success (meaning the most minor procentage possible of people displaying it).
    And please, LP, free yourself from a contract.

    If the band is not content with this, they have good reason, whether "humorous" or not, it's SHIT. I don't even know how could THAT be considered "funny", it sucks on so many levels.

    Warner still has a chance to stop that trainwreck from happening, but they won't, unfortunately.

    ^It's funny because it's so bad. :lol:

    I'd just watch it so I can take the piss out of every little thing they do/say, haha.
