I agree with all this to an extent, but I can now see Chester and Mike facepalming and being like "ugh everything we do makes them angry? Why do they take it all so seriously?!" LP misunderstand the reasons behind people criticising.. IT'S BECAUSE WE THINK YOU CAN DO BETTER. It's not like Nickelback, where they suck anyway and we don't bother commenting at all. Mike did go out of his way to condescend a portion of fans who loved the nu-metal Linkin Park though, and that was wrong. Chester was mean with his comment (now edited out of the video) I dunno, this seemed like an opportunity for Linkin Park to really become self aware of how the world percieves them.. a grounding moment. Don't forget your roots LP. I'd be pretty pissed if Metallica started doing Polka, or if The Roots brought in Carrot Top to help write one of their songs. Use this opportunity to become more self aware, don't start putting down groups of fans because they don't "get" what you're doing, come on.. this isn't a cult.
