    I'm not sure if this has been done before. Or if it belongs in this section. But none the less...


    Musical artists with huge followings tend to have a name for their fans. Lady GaGa calls her fans "Little Monsters", Slipknot has "Maggots", and Greatful Dead fans were known as "Dead Heads". So my question is, what would we like to call Linkin Park fans? Feel free to post a serious consideration or to post something just because it sounds funny. Either way this should be fun.

    Soldiers is what we are called or at least what people seem to think we are called. Viewing comments on the Eminem vs Linkin Park poll, almost all the LP comments have them using Soldiers to describe each other in them

    Soldiers. Harkonning back to the Hybrid Soldier on the cover of Hybrid Theory. Also, the name "Street Soldier" was given to the members of the Linkin Park Street Team.

    I think giving names to groups of fans is kind of silly to be honest.

    It gives the fan a feeling of belonging, in my opinion.

    LP Soldier sounds ok, but I personally wouldn't call myself anything other than a Linkin Park fan.

    As Amanda said, that thread is over two years old and is "dead" so making a new thread is fine. :)

    I know your point bro and I agree about the feeling, but I think it's a little silly. Mainly in cases like "Little Monsters". ;X

    Haha. Living Things. :p

    Anyway, about the thread, I posted it just for information. I don't know. Just to him see that it was already discussed. :)

    Linkin Park Fans. I agree with Flagrare, it's pretty silly.

    Although I'm not against being a Soldier.

    Two reasons I hate the use of Soldiers
    1.) It's so old school and relates back to nu metal fans

    2.) I don't feel like I ever did anything to be called a Soldier

    I've pretty much only heard "soldier" to refer to Street soldiers separate from the rest of the fans. I've never seen it as a name for the whole fanbase.

    Otherwise I've just heard "LP fans." Pretty simple and straightforward.

    I like "LP FBI" though. I would be okay with that becoming a thing.
