I've always wanted them to perform the Super Bowl halftime show. Sadly, it won't ever happen .
Come to Seattle on October 14th.
Was going to be my 2nd time seeing them
-Play Mark the Graves live
-Bring back Rebellion, Given Up, Final Masquerade, and Crawling studio version to their setlists.
-Tour with Issues as support
-Release a THP DVD like Milton Keynes
-Release a straight up Royal Blood type rock album
-Release ATS part 2 this time with no interludes.
Coming to my country
Making an album that is so good as ATS again (yes I know, I sound like the nu-metal fanboys but ATS is fucking perfect and the other LP albums are not even close to it).
I just wish everyone would've gotten to see them live
If we got an ATS part 2 where the songs sounded like ATS and expanded on that sound but the standard 12 song tracklist with 1 instrumental I would have heard the greatest album of all time.
Made more than just 7 albums with all 6 guys
But the interludes are the best part!
I can't agree. Interludes just aren't for me.
If it weren't for the interludes, ATS might have been my favorite LP album instead of sitting at #5.
The actual songs are some of the best work I've ever heard.
Here's one we all have likely thought about: The band intervenes and saves Chester once more from despair and continues recording music with him, just like during the pre-MTM era.
Headline glastonbury this will never happen now. A live version of halfway right. Robot boy and key to the kingdom
Sell over 100 Million CDs
release a 3rd Live DVD
release atleast 10 studio albums
That can still happen
Make a 8th Studio Album that celebrates the 20 Years of Linkin Park. The Album should be a Hybrid of every Album they did.
Ya know, on top of the albums and live shows, one thing I will always miss are videos of the band just fucking around. Whether it was LPTVs or light hearted interviews, man did I love to see them screw around. It was just another aspect of the band that I fell in love with and made all of us realize they were inseparable as a group.
And Chester was a main component of that screw-around-ness. It probably won't ever be the same without him.
Hunting Party 2
A proper Reanimation sequel, although I think theoretically one may work as a tribute to Chester. Mike working with a ton of different other artists and reworking some of their songs in honor of him. However given Recharged and... all that, I don't see it ever hitting me the same way the 2002 album did. A proper Reanimation follow up was likely never in the cards even with Chester alive.
I would have loved to see Chester do some work with a post rock band like Circa Survive, and just working with a lot of different styles of instrumentation in general.
A stripped back acoustic album of all their best songs
An honest attempt at writing a nu-metal song with everything they've learned over the years - make it a standalone single
Open the live show with Keys To The Kingdom. Imagine a pitch black stage and then suddenly a single spotlight drops on Chester screaming the intro. Lights start flashing everywhere to the beat of Rob's drums and then the whole stage lights up for the main riff. I get chills thinking about it.
Release a self titled album featuring their best, most polished, Rock and Hip-Hop sound with Mike and Chester slaying.
Oh I forgot, another proper live album/DVD. I complained not long ago about how long it had been since the last proper live recordings, and how a lot of albums seemed to have no decent live videos up anywhere (most of what I can find off of Living Things, for example, seems to be disappointingly average quality). I was also curious as to how OML material would sound in a really professionally filmed live setting, as Talking To Myself and some other songs I heard that I wasn't crazy about on the album sounded significantly better live.
Live in Texas quality recordings of shit from the later albums would have been excellent.
I've been saying for a while that I wanted a "Live from the Basement"/"Unplugged" version of OML. Given that the songs started off in a similar way, I wonder if we'll ever get to hear the early versions. Maybe on an LPU. In general, I wanted to hear more stripped down/acoustic versions of older songs.
Also, I had tickets to see them today I was excited to hear the extended LOATR and WFTE, and even more excited to see Chester and Mike on stage. I was really looking forward to today and I know it would've been an awesome time.
Oh, and another SNL performance would have been sweet.
