    How Much Cursing Do You Think There Will Be On LIVING THINGS?

    How much swearing do you think LIVING THINGS will have? To truly go back to their "roots" in song and album structure, i'd say don't swear, but then again I don't mind swearing on any LP song, as long as they don't go overkill this time. (Given Up i'm looking at you)

    The only song i think probably will have swearing in it is VICTIMIZED, but that's just me.

    What do you guys think?

    Honestly there's a big part of me that feels there won't be any swearing at all. However, the swearing typically occurs when Mike's rapping, and if he's doing that more in Living Things, I suppose there is a possibility.

    Personally, I don't give a flying fuck either way. I curse like a sailor so really I don't even notice it. haha

    For the most part, Chester and Shinoda are pretty good at picking when and when not to swear. They've done it fairly tastefully on the last couple of albums and kept it to a minimum. I have faith that that trend will continue with this new album.

    Agreed with both of you.

    In a way, I think there will be none, but what minuteforce said makes sense too... And Mike is rapping a lot here, i don't know and I don't mind, just interested in what everyone else thinks.

    If it follows the same pattern as all the reviews have set in that it's the same structure as their earlier work, I wouldn't be surprised if there were no cursing in it at all.

    I don't even think there has ever been a lot of swearing on an LP record... and the only word they ever use is fuck. I've never heard shit or bitch before.

    I fucking love swearing, but, it won't bother me one bit if there is or is not swearing on LIVING THINGS.
    The cycle repeated as explosions broke in the sky
    all that I needed was the one thing I couldn't find
    And you were there at the turn waiting to let me know
    We're building it up to break it back down
    We're building it up to burn it down
    We can't wait to burn it to the ground
    The colors conflicted as the flames climbed into the clouds
    I wanted to fix this but couldn't stop from tearing it down
    And you were there at the turn caught in the burning glow
    And I was there at the turn waiting to let you know
    You told me yes you held me high And I believed when you told that lie
    I played that soldier you played king And struck me down when I kissed that ring
    You lost that right to hold that crown I built you up but you let me down
    so when you fall I'll take my turn and fan the flames as your blazes burn

    Mike also says "Bitch" on the track they did with Handsome Boy Modelling School. "just close your eyes and pretend again that your skin isn't as thin as the skin you're in, bitch!"

    To go back further, Shinoda used expletives in some of the pre-"Hybrid Theory" material as well.

    Swearing is apart of my basic vocabulary (meaning I hardly notice when someone cusses). So if there will be cussing, which I'm expecting with Living Things, I don't mind. I don't think Linkin Park will over use words like "fuck, shit, ect." because from their previous work they seemed to keep it somewhat low.

    Sometimes they feel forced, as long as it sounds like it belongs, it's all good. The guys are in their 30s, they can curse.
