You know how the track names are spelled weird? It makes it more complicated to download them on Kazaa because a lot of people dont know how to spell them exactly correct. What do you think of this theory?

Probably because Linkin Park took the songs, and made them into almost completly new songs. So they took the original title and reanimated it a little, just to be able to tell the difference and not have to have (remix) behind every title.

If people are smart they'd realize that they don't need to know the filenames "Ppr:kut" and stuff, that they can put "Linkin Park - Reanimation - Track Number - Title" like that, but use the ORIGINAL title instead of the reanimated title, but every would know that it's the remix because it'll say "Reanimation" in there somewhere.

I...

I'm done. :P

I think of it this way, too.

Hmm, I've never thought of it that way you're saying. :unsure:

there are quite a few theories. 1) to distinguish between original and remixed songs. 2) to hamper the efforts of people downloading it. 3) to make them look cool. 4) the "reanimation" theme of the cd, the songs are remixed, song the titles must be too. 5) the members of lp are computer nerds.

:P :lol: :rolleyes:

I'm glad they reanimated the titles, it's a lot easier to say
"Hey you feeling Ppr:kut?"

rather than...

"Hey you feeling Papercut Remix?"
"Which one?"
"The Remix"
"Which Remix?"
"Papercut"
"You mean the hell remix? that sucks"
"NO!, the REANIMATION REMIX!"
"Ah, that's tight"

LOL

It could just be a reason for KazaA and Morpheus Users not to download the songs easely. PS!: Dont use KazaA i destroys your Computer, Use LimeWire ore Morpheus 2.0

Nikki

Songspy works good as well, you just cant download video's which is a bad thing kind of. But the songs download really fast :D

back on topic, LP support download MP3s if I'm correct, so I doubt its not an effort to stop people from downloading

Bryan

Its prolly just to go along with the whole 'Reanimated" theme, the songs were reanimated, the soldier was reanimated, the guys themselves were reanimated, so to go along with it, they just Reanimated the way the songs look. I think its cool

No, it's not because of KaZaA or anything like that. Because if you remember, they SUPPORT free music. "Yeah, we support free music. Go ahead, download that ####!" - Mike Shinoda

Actually, try KaZaA Lite. It's the same as KaZaA. But..it has a virus protector, and it comes WITHOUT the spy. Or the ads. Much better. :D

They titled the tracks that way to go with the theme of the album: "reanimation." If the tracks were titled normally with "(Remix)" following them all, it would get very boring. That is the exact reason why they're titled like that.

Let this topic die...

They made the names look funky because they couldn't afford most of the letters for the album. 'Nuff said.
