    A radio station called Absolute Radio is holding a competition called the Rock-Off. Basically, band fan-forum's make playlist, and the best one will be played on air. The forum it comes from will also get some promotion on the station.

    The playlist must contain 12 songs, 6 from the band the forum supports (in this case Linkin Park), and 6 from any other bands we feel like including.

    Some other information: A forum moderator/admin must submit this to the station. Also, we have until next Sunday to complete the list. One other thing, the station will dedicate the whole day to the winning forum's band.

    Okay, so lets start submitting ideas. If this gets enough support, then ill compile a list of the most requested songs, which we can then vote on, deciding the final list of LP tracks. The other songs will be more difficult, but i'll figure something out.

    So, submit your lists in this thread.

    Heres my list of LP tracks:

    1) With You
    2) Breaking The Habit
    3) Little Things Give You Away
    4) In Pieces
    5) Bleed It Out
    6) In The End

    For other bands:

    1) Muse- Bliss
    2) The Killers- Sam's Town
    3) Weezer- Pink Triangle
    4) Coldplay- Lost!
    5) Red Hot Chili Peppers- Get On Top
    6) Arcade Fire- Keep The Car Running

    For the second half, I contribute the idea of Innerparty's "Don't Stop". And something by NIN, I don't know what. I'm down for putting in Muse and Coldplay, and, really, I have no problem with any other bands on your list.

    And, as for LP, the others on this board would be more equipped to do that than me, I have trouble choosing the "best" songs and there's not much of a criteria to go by anyway.

    I think we have enough notoriety within the LP camp and on the radio - at least, more so than other bands' fansites. But this sounds like fun.

    I'm guessing name recognition on the radio.

    I'd change the RHCP track to 'Can't Stop' and a second to the motions of IPS and NIN.

    Linkin Park:
    01:: With You
    02:: A Place for My Head
    03:: The Little Things Give You Away
    04:: Breaking the Habit
    05:: One Step Closer

    Other Bands:
    01:: Innerpartysystem - Don't Stop
    02:: Coheed and Cambria - Welcome Home
    03:: My Chemical Romance - Dead!
    04:: Muse - Knights of Cydonia
    05:: Nine Inch Nails - Hurt

    For NIN, I was going to say The Great Destroyer, just because...But I don't know :lol: I tried to pick songs I saw a lot of people on here praising. The Muse track is random because there are a lot of people on here that worship Muse and the same goes for MCR :p

    Linkin Park:
    01:: With You
    02:: Given Up
    03:: Lying From You
    04:: Breaking the Habit
    05:: One Step Closer (Live RTR)

    Other Bands:
    01:: Egypt Central - Taking You Down
    02:: Atreyu - Blow
    03:: Fort Minor - Dolla
    04:: Taproot - Wherever I Stand
    05:: Papa Roach - To Be Loved

    That would be my suggestion. I think the additional bands should definitely include Egypt Central and some rock n'roll track by Papa Roach.
