The guys of Linkin Park have been pretty excited about releasing new music off their new album "One More Light" due out next week.
Having said that, some longtime fans of the band haven't been as pleased! Their new music has been getting some backlash from people saying it's "too pop" or that the band "sold out."
So what does frontman Chester Bennington have to say about all this?
In a new interview with Music Week, Chester is saying "Move on." Using some choice words Bennington says the band isn't going back to the old "Hybrid Theory" sound, and that this is what they want to do now.
“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!”
“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 f**king years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the f**k on. You know what I mean?”
I mean you can't blame them for wanting to do what they want to do, right?
