    Not as much as ATS did. ATS had more #1 hits then HT.

    Only reason why HT kicked ass because it had the substance of Korn and Limp Bizkit combined and it hadn't been seen in the music industry before. That's why HT has sold more copies than any other album.

    "People think this rock and rap this is new. This shit ain't new. It's constantly evolving."

    I dont think so, In the end alone topped all of the charts is one of Linkin Park's most popular and successful songs, Crawling won a grammy, one step closer do i even have to bother

    Hybrid Theory has sold 24 mill copies world wide
    ATS has sold 840,000 world wide

    and how could you say HT is a mix of korn and LB that is ridiculous, HT is in a EPIC class by itself that can not be touched by any band today

    This is soo true! A lot of people these days buy singles rather than whole albums. And also since everyone has Ipods and phones, they can easily get songs off the internet for free straight to their device.

    I think what he meant was, the reason why ATS only sold 840,000 copies was because everyone was illegally downloading it.

    What about Linkin Park - Fuse ?
    I don't remember the exact line from the song, but i believe it was used as an offensive manner.

    "Enola Gay rhymes kick the notch up a level in intensity ..."

    Enola Gay was the codename for a WWII bomber which dropped the first atomic bomb ever (ed. note: dropped in war). In the quoted lyric, Shinoda compares the power of his rhymes to the power of the bomber and, by extension, the atomic bomb it carried. Nothing about homosexuality. ;)

    Thx. to deftonesfan867 for some of this information, by the way.

    In the olden days the word gay wasn't used in a derogatory manner.

    That's definitely not relevant in the case of the Xero song, though. They were written and recorded in 1996 or something

    Still relevant because it was the name of a plane from the 40's that wasn't used in an offensive manner.

    Ohh, right, I get you. :)

    I was saying that "gay" was probably already being used as a pejorative around the time the Xero songs were being written

    I had to stop and think for a second who was the dude on the left with the weird haircut and glasses.


    :facepalm: your hairdresser is horrible Rob.
