LINKIN PARK is putting out their new album “One More Light” next Friday . . . but some fans are already bummed, because they think the poppier sound of their single “Heavy” is a sign that they’ve SOLD OUT.
Well, CHESTER BENNINGTON doesn’t want to hear it. He says that if you’re expecting them to sound like they did 17 years ago . . . you’ll be disappointed.
Quote, “I don’t care. If you like the music, fantastic. If you don’t . . . that’s your opinion too. Fantastic . . . When we made ‘Hybrid Theory’ [in 2000], 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 [effing] years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the [eff] on.”
(You’re never going to please some people. Pearl Jam sounds exactly like they did 30 years ago . . . and some people make fun of them for not evolving enough.)
