Ahah you turning this in your favor. I remember a recent Chester interview ( ATS era) when he said "Jane's Addiction, Ministry, Depeche Mode are probably my favorite bands ever...they're the one I pay the most attention to". Jane's addiction is rock, Ministry is metal. Also, Mike listens to a ton of stuff. He said once he has more than 10 000 musics on its computer. He likes indie-electronic stuff indeed, but he's also a fan of Metallica/ Thrice/Deftones/...Bands which all have heavy songs. And also, Mike is a super hip-hop fan. Also, band members are all fans of Metallica/Led Zeppelin/...Bands which belongs to the rock universe. Don't make it seems like LP do not like ehavy stuff or metal. They're just not fan of the "rap-rock" genre, aka bands like limp bizkit for example.
