Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington is upset with people saying Linkin Park has sold out, defending their more commercial new sound by basically blasting his own fan base.
Speaking to Music Week, he said, “We were asked, ‘What do you think of people who say you sold out?’ I don’t care. If you like the music, fantastic. If you don’t like it, that’s your opinion too. Fantastic. If you’re saying we’re doing what we’re doing for a commercial or monetary reason, trying to make success out of some formula… then stab yourself in the face!”
He also lost his cool when the band’s debut album Hybrid Theory was brought up, saying, “When we made Hybrid Theory, I was the oldest guy in the band and in my early 20s. That’s why I guess I’m like: ‘Why are we still talking about Hybrid Theory? It’s fucking years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the fuck on. You know what I mean?”
Seems like Bennington is about to breeeaaaak!
