That is true, and the verses do come together nicely, from what I can see.
I remember back in 2002 people being mad about the word "pissed" being on Reanimation, in the context of peeing.
I don't really give a dang you pissed on my lawn
Took a dump like a punk now the battles on
Damn. I suppose some things never change
There was an odd rumor around then that LP was a 'Christian" rock band, which was just as hilarious then as it is now, but more or less a lot of more devout parents were likely pissed off on behalf of their crotchfruit and passed it along.
This is the ONLY song that used rap on this album. and it seems like it's an outlier track on OML and has nothing to do with the rest of the album. so why all the hate or because it's LINKIN PARK so it MUST BE BAD
What are actually the words that make a song explicit? Fuck? Bitch?
Oh, yeah, I remember that that was because they toured with Christian rock acts.
Anyway, every single thing the band has done has been resisted by fans. A few years from now, people won't believe that LP used to shy away from using "hoes" liberally in their songs! We'll be explaining to new, new fans that it used to be a big deal. As @Astat said earlier, it's a can of worms that they can't close now. Expect more.
How dare you judge the lyrics already!? Don't you know you're not allowed to have an opinion until you hear the full song!?
I discussed this whole thing with a friend. This might help you guys to better appreciate the usage/context of "hoes" in this Linkin Park song:
What stuns me is that for once, it seems like Reddit and LPA have flipped. With BS and Heavy, there were a lot of people attempting to defend the songs on here while the LP Reddit seemed to be tearing both songs to shreds.
Now, the LP Subreddit is geeking out and hyping over the track, and people in this thread are the opposite. Amusing .
At least those people could convey their thoughts on the lyrics, which is exactly what this thread is supposed to be about, without sounding like an angst-filled teenager who just got permission from mom and dad to use profanity.
I had this one friend in high school who swore up and down that in One Step Closer's chorus, Chester needed a little room to pray.
Yeah, r/linkinpark has shown zero ignorance and blind hate on this one (relative to other places). I'm proud of them.
Not a fan of the word "hoe" since I feel unconfortable with these kind of words, but it's not a big deal otherwide I would stop listening to a lot of songs and artists that I enjoy.
Now, about their statement of "focusing on lyrics", I can't fully understand why people are so angry and/or disappointed at them. They've been saying things that didn't happen that well on their albuns for quite some time now. I don't understand why they always do that (in the last few albums at least) but I just learned to pretty much ignore and wait for the album.
I loved Battle Symphony, Heavy was ok (I still sing it for myself in the most random moments of my daily life) and even though I'm not that excited about Good Goodbye, I'm obviously curious to hear it.
Just... I think it would be better to not get too attached to certain statements and stuff they say about the new albums.
some people just listen for sound, and don't care about the lyrics. Personally, I think good lyrics are just a bonus. I primarily care about sound. Why is that "worse" to you? Why can't I listen to music the way I want to? It doesn't affect you, you know. You can listen to music and experience it completely differently than me and we'll both be just fine.
"Rap critics that say he's "Money Cash Hoes"
He's from the hood stupid what type of facts are those
If you grew up with holes in your zapitos
You'd celebrate the minute you was having doe
So fuck critics you can kiss our whole asshole
If you don't like my lyrics you can press fast forward"
Sounds like they stole lyrics from Jay-Z...
If people are deeply offended and disturbed by the word "hoe" being on a hip hop song on an LP album, then I suggest these people never listen to rap music.
I just want another album in the same vein as A Thousand Suns
This. I'm a big supporter of the band, and have found things to love about (almost) every album the band has released. That being said, I stopped paying close attention to hype phrases the band uses a while ago. I find it's better to approach the first listen without bias, rather than let hype phrases by the band affect my judgement.
Good example: This 'personal approach' to lyrics statement they've been saying over and over is nearly word for word what they said for LIVING THINGS. They called that album a 'personal album' too. It's literally deja vu.
So carnivorous, visceral and loud...
