  1. I Prevail's was better.
  2. From Ashes to New: the best album of 2016.
  3. 2/2 for me too. Apparently Losing Control was co-written by Dustin Bates (Starset lead singer). Great stuff.
  4. Wow already! Yes, Still Alive rules!
  5. Is Fred Durst their official video producer? That's two produced by him now. Either way, I love this band. This is my AOTY and it's going to be hard to beat. I hope they get really giant because we need more of this kind of music!
  6. My favorite albums seem to be going against each other.
  7. I didn't know they were still active. I really like these songs from them.
  8. This is tough, but I have to go with Korn.
  9. This was a throwback album for BSC to the first 2. It was easily one of my favorites. This is tough, but I have to go with BSC.
  10. Tiny hands lies and says he had "talked" to the generals. Then the generals all call BS. Oh yeah and let's think of all the tax money that was burned because the military was already prepared medically for transgender people per the last year's initiative and then Tiny hands decides a day before implementation on his own to tweet that he is banning this. Not to mention that it won't stand in court and will create tons of unneeded lawsuits. He can't even make an announcement in person. He's too busy thanking 12-17 year old boy scouts for voting for him in wasted speeches. This is the face of a madman. Please get him out.
  11. Same here Koldes. Loving this!
  12. I love this album. I can play through the whole thing except for the country song, which is okay. Great job!
  13. I can't keep up with new releases in the last few weeks. I'm going to get to this one soon.
  14. I just listened to some songs from this band. I'm really liking it. They are a great numetal representative. It reminds me of the early 2000s.
  15. I'm liking all these songs. Bring on the album!
  16. This is actually really good.
  17. I love these puppet videos. Good stuff.
  18. Hopes are gone for anything good here.
  19. Another testament of how much Chester and LP bridged the gap between personalities and genres is this Billboard article. Look at the bottom at how many people were influenced by Chester on the twitter feeds (Iron Shiek, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Paul Stanley, Ryan Seacrest, Nikki Sixx, Jimmy Eat World, Jimmy Kimmel, Lupe Fiasco, Chance the Rapper, Sully Erna, Nick Jonas, Christina Perri, Rihanna, and John Kasich) just to name a few. This speaks volumes.
  20. The "metalhead purists" always bash LP and numetal in general, which I always thought was stupid. As others have said on here, LP was a gateway band for many that got them into listening to rock or metal. Hybrid Theory and Meteora are probably in my top 20 all-time albums because I can play them all the way through and never want to skip a song. My friends that knew nothing about other rock bands I listened to always could relate with me because we all agreed that LP was an awesome band. We blasted Hybrid Theory in the locker room when I played football in high school and everyone on the team would get hyped to play a game. They were probably one of the most, if not the most popular band in my high school by the time I graduated. This also includes being more popular than most pop artists at that time. When Meteora came out, there was a huge buzz in school. I'm not sure if the same thing happens anymore for albums these days in grade school. Weiland, Cobain, Staley, and Cornell were all voices of my early childhood memories, while Chester is one of the most predominant voices of my teenage and early adult days along with a few others. In my first year of college everyone blasted LP songs and the ReAnimation album along with the collaborations with Jay Z. They were everywhere on popular media when you think about it from 2000 to 2008. Even friends in college that mostly listened to country knew about and listened to LP. If I asked them if they knew who Mudvayne, Slipknot, or Skillet was they always looked at me like I was an alien, but they knew about LP. When "What I've Done" dropped, how huge was that? The lead up and hype to that song and video was serious. Also, it was the main song on the first Transformers movie series. The movies and the song are now synonymous. Just a few years ago I was riding in a car with my friend to Tahoe and he started blasting Hybrid Theory after a breakup. I hadn't listened to the entire album in about 5-10 years and we were singing every lyric perfectly to the songs. He isn't a huge rock fan either, but we could both enjoy singing the songs together and it cheered him up. My wife and I are the same way, we both love LP and can sing most of their older material without hesitation. I've also to this day used some of the lyrics for inside jokes with her and she does the same with me. This all speaks to how much of an influence Chester and LP had on my generation. Apparently as Green Baron has said, their later work has resonated with the following generation, which is extremely difficult for a band to do. The fact that Chester's death was the second headline under the OJ parole news today on CNN shows just how influential they are. I also regret never seeing them. I might have had 1 chance about 10 years ago in Philly, but never made the time during summer break. At least I got to see Chester with STP many years later and I hope Linkin Park continues because they are still influential.
  21. This is unreal. While I wasn't a big fan of their new stuff, I've always loved their earlier work. I started listening to them a few weeks after they released Hybrid Theory. Their songs were a part of my high school and early college years. They got me through a lot of tough times. It's a shame that this stuff happens. We lost Cornell and now Chester and Weiland a few years back. It's ironic that Chester sang for STP and I saw STP the last time Weiland sang for them and saw STP the last time Chester sang with them. Anyways, condolences to the family and everyone here on Alternanoise. This is a tough one.
  22. I'm wondering what parents tell their kids and what kids think about tiny hands. This Mika Brzinski thing is just absolute insanity. It's funny that their response is that he has completely gone insane.
