Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance





Torn
I love this two bands i say there perfect. There songs are so much better than other types of music. But they are complety diffrent music styles of each other but they fit toghter so good. How about yalls opinions.
Caxius
i prefer mcr Wink
Nanks
I like Linkin Park better, can't say i'm a fan of MCR but I don't mind some of there songs
UMBlueMusic
I like them both, but I've seen My Chemical Romance live so I'd have to say I prefer them. Something about being packed in a mosh pit 20 feet from the stage just makes a band grow on you, I guess. ^_^ I think they're both really solid bands, but both have different strengths. I've loved Linkin Park the longest though.

To make a long story short, I hold them about equal. ^_^

I saw my chemical romance live and they were horrible.

These are teenage bands. To me they suck. Or It's just not my cup of tea!

im a big fan of my chemical romance Smile

I believe that these bands have net much behind them. I think they are ok muscians. Though there music has nothing to it, compare it to zeppelin, Page plant Bonhan and Jones all amazing muscians that work on there music and they accucally have done somthing for the music revolution of today. Jimi Hendrix, nobody can play guitar and sing as good as him, these new bands just cover up there talent with sinteziers and screaming you dont hear the real person. it is just computers.


Id go with the old stuff over new any day

I agree with u. Those are 2 amazing bands and thats why they're my favs.

I loathe them both. Linkin I don't mind so much because they are musically interesting, but MCR make me want to rip my ears out.
djcaution
Linkin Park is one of my favourite bands. The lyrics they use in their tracks are right on the money and I can relate to them completely. I love this band and think they ROCK
idrather_not
I'm sorry but when comparing Linkin Park to My Chemical Romance...come on....its MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE. Linkin park has those kind of songs that you here on the radio and your not exsited but you sing along and bob your head. But My Chemical Romance is a band that makes you want to rape your radio when Helena comes on or bang your TV when MTv plays Ghost of You. there is just no comparison. MCR
btheday
LP by far. I hate MCR, they annoy the @#%$ out of me.
breaktheRULEs
I love Linkin Park, I never listen to MCR.
LeonSKennedy
Linkin Park is a cool mix of rock and hip-hop. I can't resist listening to it.

MCR is a shitty combination of goth and emo and should be whiped from the face of the earth. I hate emo.

I use Linkin Park for ANY video I make, wether it's a BMX video or a videogame movie.
ddukki
I like Linkin Park, for sure. I won't say that they're the best that has ever come out, since most of they're songs sound about the same, but they've got the formula pretty right.

My Chemical Romance. I won't say anything derogatory, but they really aren't my favorite band.

How many topics is this now about these two bands?

God! Listen to some real bands that have been around for at least 10 years.

I began disliking Linkin Park ever since last year. Like, they haven't realised an new album ever since 2003 (almost three years) and seriously, their "Jay-Z" partnership never had real success. I guess people start moving on with other bands when your favourite band doesn't seem to be doing anything... Sad Oh yeh, and I sorta realised that their songs are quite repetitive and sound very much alike..
Subsonic Sound
Both are image based bands, tailored to appeal to a certain demographic, and the producers very obviously had this in mind.

I used to be a Linkin Park fan, I have to admit, and I still hold that Hybrid Theory was a good album. They've not really done anything worthwhile since, however, and their genre has effectively died around them.

MCR I just plain don't like.

However they're both good bands to hook people into the genre and the style, so those people can then move on to better things. That's what Linkin Park did for me, certainly.

They both suck as bad as your english.

Ok, this is where I draw the line, just because a band is new...doesn't make it not a "real" band. There are many talented musicians out there, and if all you listen to is your older music, what chance are you giving to those aspiring artists. New artists can and are just as creative as oldies musicians.

And people who bash on groups just because they aren't into their music drive me nuts. If you don't like a band, that's your business, don't bash people just because they listen to a band you don't like. Give new music a chance, if it doesn't click with you, it doesn't click with you. What I don't get is why people aren't considerate of other music preferences, or any preference in any subject. Just remember before you spout out off at the mouth.

How would you like it if I came out and told you to "shut up you stupid hippie"? Quit insulting people. You have to remember there are people on here who can't speak the greatest english, but at least cut them slack for trying.

You suck.

Danzig and the Misfits are the most overrated musical acts ever.... no really they are bad. Also, Danzig happens to be a retarded piece of $#!7.

There are an infinite amount of bands currently around that are better and more talented than Danzig and the Misfits.

*note* I am basing this on the assumption that the Misfits are one of your favorites, and I don't think I am too far off on that assumption because you have a Danzig avatar.
molif
duh.. linkin park is much better.. nice arrangement of music and great composition of songs.. however, one bad thing about linkin park is that they are too commercialised..
Bosleee

Thank u, thank u!! I rememeber being a hardcore LP fan after hearing the 1st album, but then I listened to Reannimation and I was like huh! It just sounded all up the creek. Also this new craze of mashups baffles me. Anyways so I guess yeah I still like LP but not like I used to. Anyways the late nighties are over! Very Happy
soulman
I love Linkin Park, and I have the album of Fort Minor, that's greate too!!
Artemis11
A few weeks ago, I would have said Linkin Park. But, seeing as they havn't been doing much of anything lately, and have too widestream, I'd have to say My Chemical Romance. Whenever I first heard MCR, I though they pretty much sucked. Then, I was at my friends house listening to some of his junk, and I started to like them. The more I listen to MCR, the more I like them. They just seem to take sometime to get used to IMO. Wink
supjapscrapper
It is not easy to make music like the guys from linkin Park do, it is alot of computers, bbut ot certainly takes lot of work and talen to do what they've done. To me MCR is one word : THEY SUCK. REALLY.
spellbinder
linkin park is a very good band
i like this group i prefer this group another band
shinnoyami
i'm a fan of acoustic and a lot of it's sub-genres. I have to say that MCR is my favorite band, they have reawaken me to liking music with english vocals. (before them, i only listened to visual-kei music) I have seen them live 3 times. They have a lot of spirit and unlike most bands out there, they send a good message, and i think that is good for younger listeners.. although i am kind of dissapointed that they are starting to become sell outs.

I think that some of linkin park's stuff is good, but i just prefer MCR.
augustoccastro
I like Mcr most...
The Phoenix
man, i just heard a couple of song by my chemical romance , and man they sucked like hell.
i hav no clue how a dude, who likes Linkin Park, the best band out there, can like this crap of a band.

Cool
Phoenix has logged out....
mercurial
i still prefer linkin park out of these two coz they were the ones who CREATED a new music wif rock, metal, hip-hop, and rap inside. YEA i have to say they were even better than fort minor now though
tingkagol
Linkin Park again. My Chemical Romance just annoys me.

Seriously, what the HELL is up with Linkin Park? Why's everyone comparing them to everybody? There are way better bands out there you know. Stop listening to Linkin Park and do some exploring- you're missing half of your life.

Linkin park are way better Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy My Chemical Romance? What kind of a name is that??? Plus there goths
hsadmin
MCR = It sucks.. it's for emo people and goths ( no offense to emo people, and goths )

Linkin Park - I was addicted to this band from the age 8, to 12. Loved them. Had everyone of there albums, from there 99 Album Hybrid Theory EP ( when they weren't called Linkin Park ), and there hybrid theory, reanimation, meteora, somewhere I belong.. And more..

Rock/Hard rock/metal/heavy metal/death metal = GREAT!

Go Chester Bennington, and Mike Shinoda!

And Linkin Park is commercial... huh, I better prefer stuff like My Chemical Romance over commercial "music" like LP.

I respect other people's opinions, your included. But LOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! Linkin Park is METAL? OR HARD ROCK? Don't give me that Laughing I would listen to LP if i wanted to know how metal does NOT look.

The novelty of them quickly wore off after hearing all their songs are the same:

-a pounding guitar whacking some one finger power-chords in drop-d
-a guy roaring (does it really poorly live, I saw on tv...NME awards I think)
-a rapper (eh, wtf?)
-a DJ making scratching noises sounded alright when u first heard a LP song like crawling or w/e but not in every single song!(again, wtf?!)
-songs about ppl trying to shape their destiny
Nutteloos
I used to love Linkin Park for quite some time. Then one day I found myself humming the start of one song and ending up with another and thinking: what the fu--. So I tried with another and it happened again. And again. Why do they even stop playing between songs? Rolling Eyes

Never heard of MCR though, but from what I've heard of it I'm not missing out on much.
Serafina
MCR is a guilty pleasure. I totally admit the fact that they are image-driven bands specifically tailored to people my age. I wouldn't pay good money to see them, they sound really bad in live recordings. >.<

Three Cheers was like one big emo song of screaming, The Black Parade is so much better in my opinion. I haven't really listened to their indie album.

I have to say, Linkin' Park and MCR are in the exact same category. They are both pretty emo. : /
FaLLeN
I liked the older music of both.
Now im not a big fan of either, i listen to MCR sometimes, The Black Parade is n't my kinda music though Sad I was looking forward to their next one too Embarassed Mad

And as for the whole 'emo' thing, id say MCR are pretty dam emo, but when people say only emo's listen to it that annoys me! I guess the majority of people who do listen to it would be emo, but sometimes people just like their sound. Rolling Eyes

Time to look for a new band... Idea Idea
The Mitchell
erm... ah bollocks to it. there is no argument lol

The Shogun
Linkin Park by far. Their music is so structurally sound and creative that I can't help but like them. Really listen to the instrumentals and you'll hear the kind of intricacy that you'll never hear in a lot of music. People tend to write them off as another rock band with Hip-Hop as a gimmick, but above all, their production quality is through the roof. Not to mention 4 of their members are educated in music and music theory, and Chester can't be touched with his voice.

Also, I really like how down to Earth the members actually are. Watch any videos or interviews with them, and they don't have their heads up their asses like most musicians do. It's great. Also: For those ill-speaking about the lack of movement lately: Get a clue. Mike just released Fort Minor, and they're constantly on tour abroad. They just had a whole mess of shows in Japan. Plus, new album in the new Year.

And Reanimation is definitely an acquired taste. I didn't like it at first, but now I prefer some of the remixes over the originals. I love it.

no. just no.


Both of these bands are (or were) fad bands picked up by the record label to make a quick (few million) bucks. Neither have any kind of longevity and neither are especially talented. I WAS a Linkin Park fan- I do have them to thank for being my sort of gateway into the heavier, less mainstream stuff.
The Shogun
Oh, you disagree? Tell me how many bands have more than a guitar and an annoying chain of crash cymbals to make the music. Then I'll concede.

wow thats a big call!!! i would say there are many bands out there that meet your requirements o.O you should of narrowd the genre gap a bit haha!

i used to really be into LP it was cool to sort of see another perspective lyrics wise...most bands that sing about girls are all about the happy bits...and limited troubled times. But LP seemed to blame alot of stuff on the partners and really gave people who are going through a hard time with their partnmer some music to listen to!

But recently the Black Parade came out by MCR and it sounds so sweet! i have no idea why i like it so much...i guess actually it is kind of weird...but it just gets right into me and i like it.
themarauder
I started out listening to Linkin Park about 3 years ago and they defnately had the type of music i liked listening to. Since then i have been getting every song of theirs i could lay my fingers on and listening like crazy.
You can listen to this music even when ur depressed. it feels so great.

A little while back, i started listening to My Chemical Romance as well. All though I like them, they can never replace LP.

Anybody that likes these two bands should also try out Fort Minor
xkobram
These two groups are completely different

I lead MCR lead vocalist is gay..lol

I Like both MCR and Linkin park...though i do like linkin parks edge over the music as some tracks of mcr do seem to be a mix of a lot of things and at times a bit dramatic lyrics
