There were some who favoured Minutes To Midnight; others who didn't like it because it was ballad and the more softer side of Linkin Park. There were some who called Linkin Park were pop, others calling it a boy band and ultimately one entirely thing that I can't stand; that they were emo. I don't understand the concept of this whole "emo" trend and it becomes more and more annoying to see such comments on places like YouTube, which I ultimately decided not to look at comments ever again because it was full of retards leaving their shit behind for others to look at. Originally emo originated from sort of 'hardcore punk' music but continues to loosen its definition and expand to label every bands that deem too emotional or depressing in their songs. It has began to exhaust its original genre definition and became an overused word to describe a band being too extreme, whiney or sadistic. Due to the popular culture of the usage of this term; its relatively alright with me to some extent. I also use the word when people seem too pessimistic or negative with a jokingly affect to it. However what I cannot stand or accept such facts is that Linkin Park is being called emo; regardless if its from critics or internet idiots roaming across the depths of YouTube and elsewhere. Now I question myself, how the heck does Minutes To Midnight seem too emo-tastic? Do you think this terminology and label really suits the album or band? Discuss or leave a comment please.
