    I don't share the same kind of enthusiasm as most of you. I expected so much more. Let's just say it was a bit too smoky for me. There wasn't any epic moments. It would've been ideal to have a nuclear explosion and the debris of that explosion being the colored powder.

    Mike truly looks like the "rapist in Linkin Park" with the pubic face hair and sith-lord hoodie
    :awesome: :lol:



    Personally, I'm not a fan of the video. It's interesting to see, considering that Linkin Park is my favorite band, but for such a highly energetic song...the video seemed too dark for me.

    It's a good video, but the radio edit is very underwhelming because it lacks in some of the build up.

    Interesting and amazing visuals, although I expected high power energetic video. It's good though.

    The band needs to let go of Joe's directing duties. I still think 'Faint' is one of their best mv's and that was due to Mark Romanek, not Joe Hahn.
    LP need more epicness in their videos. Hire Rich Lee or Joseph Kahn!

    From the LP facebook, Joe describes his idea of the video:

    I don't think the video matched the energy of the song but it did match the lyrics in a way. When I think of "broken people living under loaded gun" I don't expect the video to have bright imagery. With that being said, my mind was blown by this video. It's definitely up there with "From the Inside" and "In the End" for me. I hope they release an extended version with the cd/dvd.

    The only part where the radio edit bugs me is at the end.

    This is the most mature video LP has made yet. It gives you a lot to think about. When you look carefully, there is a story being told and each band member symbolizes the different characters. Chester is the dude who's dying (lol), Mike I guess can be the person who set off the nukes. I'm pretty sure Brad dies too, haha. It will take a while to fully interpret this. When can you ever say that about a music video?

    Joe Hahn is a fucking genius.

    Mike definitely blew me away with his performance. Chester singing in the water was awesome!
