    I see even the great, all-knowing Minus can't detect all forms of sarcasm.

    I'm not sure what the speech is about in Victimized. All I know is it always brings back thoughts of When They Come for Me.

    But Chester doesn't scream anything like screamers in hardcore music. Apples to oranges my friend.

    I will say that Given Up's bridge is arguably powerful enough to be heavier than Victimized, but unlike Victimized it doesn't last for 1:47.

    I have no idea what that speech is about. I opened the song on Audacity and listened to it backwards and also at a very slow speed but I still couldn't figure out anything besides 'Linkin Park', and 'back' like someone said, and something like 'we're the only ones'. But I have no idea.

    It's definitely one of the hardest LP tracks. I'm not sure if it's the hardest one. QWERTY just blew my mind away when I heard it for the first time.

    People tend to forget 'Hit the Floor'. Yes, I know for most LP fans it's one of the weakest LP tracks (I don't really dislike it) but it's also very very powerful.

    QWERTY & No More Sorrow. The bridge from From The Inside is pretty bad ass as well.

    Anyone else feel like this is this albums When They Come For Me? It feels like a punk track poking fun at the LP fans who are butthurt about HT/Meteora.

    It's probably distasteful to make fun of actual LP fans. I take it more as a statement to the various bloggers and the parts of the media in general that decry Linkin Park's new direction.

    But, that said, I don't really think this song is in the same vein as Mike's verse in WTCFM. I took it more as a general statement of resistance to a dominant person/group in one's life.

    You want a victim?

    The main reason I was asking is because of the line

    "As this siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm"

    Waiting For The End reference?

    this was a real treat for the hybrid theory fans.
    the lyrics arent too cheesy and wasnt ruined like the end of blackout.
    definitely my favorite track

    The track is awesome, and I like the end, but ATS should have a ''firecracker'' record like Victimized is, and that would be it.

    I just thought, you guys think they'll play Victimized in Bleed it Out like they did with A Place For My Head?

    This. I do enjoy the end of Blackout, but ATS would have been a stronger album without that.

    why is VICTIMIZED only 1:46 long???!!!

    why in the blue hell is VICTIMIZED only a minute 46 seconds??!!! this song is mad crazy good, and when it ended so abruptly, i was like wait.....is that it??!!! after getting pumped with the drumming and chester's screaming, the song just......ended??

    anyone know the story behind this song??

    it sounds great, no, amazing.... but why is it so damn short???!!!

    i'm sure they could have extended it with more thrashing and screaming in the break down, and then the repeat chorus to cap it off.....why not do that??!!

    i'm thinking they wanted to go 'against the grain' with this one, and not have the typical song formula, and just end it, but come one man, i feel cheated here!!!

    i wanted more of this song!!

    what you guys think??
