    Not really, it's still legendary among the younger crowd. Most of the people here are just old enough to remember when it came out, whereas a lot of fans these days were probably introduced to the band by that album and thus consider it the greatest.

    I think A Thousand Suns is the best album, and Im part of the younger crowd. And There is no way Meteora is legendary, It is what it is. Any way back on topic..

    Edit: I'm actually stuck on which is the best LP album out of ATS and HT. :lol:

    Rap-rock, just like any other genre never went away.

    Rap-rock bands such as Hollywood Undead just irk me the wrong way because it's much too "in-your-face". It's obnoxious, and cringe-worthy.

    "Rock & Hip-Hop have been collaboratin for years"-Mike, Step Up

    Run DMC did it with Rock Box back in 84, 2 years later with Aerosmith. Public Enemy and Anthrax collaborated in what, 92, 93? Hed PE and Korn started doin there thing around 97, then Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park til about 2003. LP/JZ in 2004. That "Party Like a Rockstar" and Lil Jon was supposed to have "Crunk Rock" around 2006. Hollywood Undead have been around since 2005. Lil Wayne had that (I didn't think too bad) 'rock' album last year.

    It never really went away. Or came back.

    edit: ^ argg beat me by a minute. But I like a lot of their songs, especially Black Dhalia, City, and Knife Called Lust.

    Hollywood Undead isn't exactly a trend-setting band.

    I liked HU before they put out their debut album; at that point, I just straight outgrew them. As someone mentioned, their style is way too blatant and ham-fisted. They seriously try too hard. ;"

    While I still bump "Hybrid Theory" and "Meteora" from time to time, those albums are pretty much the only 'rap-rock' or 'nu-metal' I have on my computer now. Hell, only one or two bands I listen to are rock bands making liberal use of powerchords or metal riffs or whatever. :)

    Well, I like Hollywood Undead, but not to an extreme extent or even to a "I love those guys" level. My favorite song from them is ironically their self-titled single ("Undead"); everything else I find cool or eh. Although just listening to "Been To Hell", Charlie Scene hasn't lost a step and the new guy DOES sound like Chester. Like, it's so unreal, you'd actually think Chester's secretly under that mask or he's getting uncredited. Although, this just seems to be HU looking for a Bennington to back up Charlie's Shinoda.

    I'm aware. You said you wouldn't be surprised if HU "brought back" rap-rock. They aren't trend-setters like that.

    Yeah, But they can make it popular again with the the younger crowd. Like a Limp Bizkit II

    Edit: But they still wouldnt be Trend setting, as there bringing back a already done Rap-Rock style to the masses, again.

    Which would mean they are setting a trend.
