Linkin Park and Projekt Revolution


#1

http://www.livedaily.com/news/Linkin_Parks_Projekt_Revolution_takes_off_in_July-12065.html?t=98

The Revolution Continues! . . But the Ignorance is. still. around? This Projekt Revolution completely dissolves the meaning of the word "Revolution", Sub-consciously. What I mean is that the music that has been chosen may have been hand-picked by some of our finest psychologists.
The tour began after the events that shook our world, You think whoever handles this event would allow an actual tour of pure militant poetry happen? Militant? Linkin Park sure speaks. .

"One Step Closer"
I cannot take this anymore
I'm saying everything I've said before
All these words they make no sense
I find bliss in ignorance
Less I hear the less you'll say
But you'll find that out anyway
Just like before...
Everything you say to me
Takes me one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break
I need a little room to breathe
Cause I'm one step closer to the edge
And I'm about to break

"A Place for my Head"
I watch how the moon sits in the sky
On a dark night shining with the light from the sun
The sun doesn't give light to the moon
Assuming the moon's going to owe it one
It makes me think of how you act to me
You do favors and then rapidly
You just turn around and start asking me about
Things you want back from me
Pre chorus:
I'm sick of the tension, sick of the hunger
Sick of you acting like I owe you this
Find another place to feed your greed
While I find a place to rest

Or even My Chemical Romance

"I don't Love You"
When you go
Don't ever think I'll make you try to stay
And maybe when you get back
I'll be off to find another way
When after all this time that you still owe
You're still, the good-for-nothing I don't know
So take your gloves and get out
Better get out
While you can
When you go
Would you even turn to say
"I don't love you
Like I did
Yesterday"

"Famous Last Words"
Now I know,
That I can't make you stay.
But where's your heart?
But where's your heart?
But where's your,
And I know.
There's nothing I can say.
To change that part.
To change that part.
To change.

The Infamous Revolution stage is allowing hits like Saosin, The Bled, Mindless Self Indulgence, and more. TO JAM THEIR MESSAGE TO THE MASSES

Saosin

"Voices"
I miss the part, when we were moving forward now
On our way down
But maybe someday, I'll be something more than love
Just know I'll never tell
And when you're on your way down
And you're waiting for your body's re-entry again
We speak in different voices
When fighting with the ones we've loved
We speak in different voices
Why can't we say what we're thinking of.

"Seven Years"
Taking on seven years the holy ghost had left alone
Test my arms, kick like crazy, I've been trying way too long.
Only push the way off to find you
I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm not sure
Getting off my chest, the story ends.
I would find a way without
tell him his eyes see too clear
I would find a way without you
tell him his eyes see too clear

Mindless Self Indulgence

are an American-based band. They describe their music as "industrial jungle pussy punk."[1] Their music is a blend of rock and electronica with a heavy punk and hip-hop influence.

"Grab the Mic"
(lemme see your little penis)
(it's a very little penis and i'm quite happy to say it's a little penis come to visit you today)
now it's so small and you tried to take it it's so... it's so... small and you tried to take it
now it's so small and you tried to take it - to take it
but now - I grab the mic and then I let my rhymes flow
I grab the mic and then I let my rhymes flow (oh dear)
but right now I need to burn, we all know who I'm dreamin of
(to the kiddie porn)

So there you have it the first Corporatized and Marketed Revolution . . This tour came about in 2002, Two years after. And has continued until now with the hardest Rebellion yet. . Please catch the irony.

Take a look and make the connection for yourself?

Have fun this Summer!

Linkin Park sucks ass. I don't care if they get Carlos Santana to sit in with them - their total lack of talent will steal the show.


#3

This is hardly new. Corporations have been co-opting "the revolution" since at least the sixties.

recent example: Rage Against The Machine


#4

But like this? I just don't think so. And as far as Rage Against the Machine being a recent example . . Now don't get me wrong i've thought about this and I just can't seem to agree with you, RATM style is more unique in a way. Check the lyrics .

Also fyi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Projekt_Revolution


#5

Mindless Self Indulgence for the win.


#6

Hahahahaha! Word!


#7

You're too old to listen to music from this decade.

Sorry, your opinion just doesn't matter.


#8

He listens to music from this decade. Ask him about Avril Lavigne.


#9

Sorry - did I piss off an LP fanboy?

And you think you opinion does matter?

LP is not music. They are played, and have been since they released their first album.


#10


Being that you are older your opinion in modern music really doesn't matter as much, allow me to illustrate...


#11

From what I have seen since you arrived here, you rarely have an opinion that is worth two shits.


#12

I listen to music from this decade and I'll give you my opinion. linkin park is a beautiful combination of crap rock and crap rap. in the tradition of lyrically and musically talented artists like fred durst and kid rock, they put lots of fake anger and yelling to make up for empty, nursery rhyme lyrics with the same riff played through each song.

and i am not whoakay at all with my chemical crapdance. anyone that says they sound like the smashing pumpkins is either, A. deaf, then they would sound similiar since there is no sound, B. the only pumpkins song they know is "1979".

as a good friend told me a long time ago, music is art. art is a form of expression. true art is showing your feelings through complexity, not saying "i hate you, i'm one step closer to the edge, i'm going to poop on your face". compare that to this:

"let the sun never blind your eyes, let me sleep so my teeth won't grind, hear the sound of a voice inside"

also guitar solos....why does the nu metal and pop punk/emo generation act like they're not real? you can only pretend they don't exist for so long before people get wise to their absence.
that's why the only "modern" bands i listen to are socialburn and rooney because well, they solo. and because the singer from rooney was in the princess diaries....my favorite film.


#13

You need to scale the x-axis.

My opinion doesn't matter - yet it has been echoed in this thread at least three times.

I buy tons of cd's - from Black Stone Cherry to Godsmack to Hinder to a new group that called Cinder Road.

Just because your parents don't like modern music doesn't mean all 'old' people are like them.


#14

I'm just breakin' your balls.

Plus I felt this thread needed more graphs. MSPaint rocks my socks.


#15

I had my fun. I saw Sabbath and Megadeth on 5/17 and Symphony X on 5/25 and again this July. If Ozzfest weren't a joke that people wouldn't even pay money to see anymore, I'd attend that as well (it would be cool to see Lamb of God and Three Inches of Blood, but it's not worth the trip from Boston to Mansfield and back.)


#16

I find it ironic that a bunch of us T-Nationers make fun of the skinny lame emo kids, and then have threads of Porject Revolution. God damn listen to some real metal for Christ sakes.


#17

People that hate on Linkin Park do it because of their popularity. They're the same as those punk rock kids that say a band "sold out" whenever they become popular. Once a band becomes really big it's no longer "cool" to like them and you have to show everyone how "cool" you are by bashing them.

That what was the comparison between fake LP lyrics and stupid Alice in Chains lyrics supposed to prove? Alice in Chains sucks to?


#18

Thank You God! ! Someone finally . . understands ? . ? . .


#19

I only like some punk, but bands don't sell out because they become big, fuck no, that's even better for them since the music industry is basically fucked at the moment because of the free music that's been going on for past few years, if I band I like gets big, more power to them.

However, I'm mostly into true metal i.e. Power/Thrash/Speed/Death/Black?Progressive etc etc this "band" isn't metal and shouldn't be labelled as one, what I don't get is the hypocrisy tha some T-Nationers have when it comes to culture and music. That's all.

P.S. Alice In Chains is actually pretty decent.
