    It's much the same way people can classify other bands as emo when it doesn't make any sense to cast them as emo in the first place.

    It's all opinion, whether it's right or wrong. But if you look up the "old" definitions of emo, today's music is NOT emo.

    Obviously some emotion was put into it. It's "emo".

    Why defend or argue over something like that label anyway? Everyone knows it's the most pointless label ever.

    Will is right to say that the clip sounds like what "emo" is today. I think it's funny how "emo" classic rock would be labeled if it were just being released. All the songs about broken relationships and things. Everything is "emo". People are "emo". Everyone is "emo". If you say you're not "emo" you're just a badass lying to yourself. Or you have a severe case of autism.

    I say don't worry about it unless the lyrics are just genuinely cheesy. Then it's not "emo", it's just disappointingly cliché and nauseating.

    AGHHHH!, Stop saying emo lol.

    I dont care if its Track.2 or not..It sounds like a great song, I get the feeling though it's going to be like In The End, In the sense that its going to be overplayed and people are going to get sick of it

    But i suppose thats like any new band that hasn't released anything in a while..look at MCR...If anyone says emo again everyones cat will die

    I wouldn't talk about autism like its some sort of joke. Somebody I know has a relative who has it I believe and I honestly doubt that this condition has any humor in it what so ever.

    Basically, anyone who classifies this track as emo is an idiot. There is nothing remotely emo about this song except for possibly..keyword possibly..the lyrics. The backround music if anything..is more 'harder Coldplay' than emo.

    It is not MCR, it is not Sum 41, it is not any of that stuff. Trust me, I have "The Black Parade" on right now, and I can tell you that even though I can't see that well (hooray for nearsightedness), I can hear just fine, and there's not an ounce of MCR in that track at all. MCR themselves aren't really emo either, but they're a hell of a lot closer to modern emo than What I've Done is, you guys just have hearing problems.

    Get over yourselves. Linkin Park are not going emo. If anything they sound like Coldplay pissed off (if you listen to the guitars and piano).

    Soft rock, or soft alternative I'd say.

    There's absolutely no point to this other than I saw it on another site and thought it would fit in with the conversation quite well.....

    My cousin has autism. It wasn't a joke.




    But honestly, another comment on the clip, is that it doesn't seem to be expanding much. I'm judging by this chorus, and I don't want anyone to yell at me saying all I've heard is a 30 second clip so I'm a moron to judge it so quickly. But seriously, folks, this doesn't sound like much change. It sounds just like a new slow Linkin Park track, and nothing more. Maybe Chester's voice has improved. That's all.

    But I guess Mike did say it would still have the Linkin Park feel to it. I don't know, maybe I was just expecting something more unexpected.


    In the end, though, I didn't really care if they did a drastic change with their new sound. If it ends up sounding somewhat like old stuff I won't care at all. I wasn't one of those who was practically begging Linkin Park to change their sound, so I won't mind if this album has a lot of similarities to old LP.

    Hope that made sense.

    This was literally the thought process in my head as I saw that picture.

    int cute kitty=10;
    int emo=0;
    int kayces thought processes = 1;
    int java = 1;
    if(cute kitty!=emo)
    {
    System.out.println("I'm pretty sure emos aren't that cute and cuddly,
    otherwise they'd have no reason to be emo");
    }
    if(kayces thought processes=java)
    {
    System.out.println("WTF am I thinking in Java?");
    }

    I know that (my amateur Java knowledge knows that much). Haha, but it looks weird if I use no spaces.

    Or I could just make them all strings.

    str mythoughts = "java";
    str normal = "anything but java";
    str picture = "cute kitty";
    if(picture.equals("cute kitty"))
    {
    System.out.println("I'm pretty sure emos aren't that cute and cuddly,
    otherwise they'd have no reason to be emo");
    }
    if(!mythoughts.equals(normal))
    {
    System.out.println("Why the hell am I thinking in Java?");
    }

    Well. No one can say that it is totally mindblowingly different but it sure is a good song...judging from the 2 clips avalible.
    I like that it sounds like Brad has some more advanced guitar work than the usual power chord-stuff. Nothing amazing but that would not fit with the music anyway. I think it's a good mix.

    I don't label songs by genre, I label them by bands, and I think this song sounds like if AFI did some sort of ballad.
