    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.


    Hold onto what is there ... and count the saints

    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.

    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.
