Mike Shinoda Says Linkin Park’s ‘Hybrid Theory’ Album Changed The Way People Looked At Music
Linkin Park frontman Mike Shinoda spoke in a recent interview with Kerrang Magazine and talked about the importance of their Hybrid Theory album.
Hybrid Theory is the debut studio album of the iconic rock band Linkin Park that released in 2000, and it features the songs like In The End, One Step Closer, Papercut, and many more.
In the conversation, Mike pointed out that all of the Linkin Park members played a role in breaking the boundaries between the genres and showed that it was a revolutionary album.
Furthermore, Mike mentioned that people really doesn’t know they changed the way people look at the music and revealed that people started to listen all types of music at the same time with the mixed albums.
Here is what Mike Shinoda said:
“None of us would try and claim that we broke all the boundaries between genres, but we played a role in breaking boundaries between genres.
It’s funny, ’cause I think some of the new generation don’t even know the way things were before bands like us, and then how albums like ‘Hybrid Theory’ and so on changed the way people looked at music. They were born after that, and they got born into that just being the way things are — mixed genres is just the way you listen. ‘Hey, what’s your favorite type of music?’ ‘I like whatever.’
When I was a kid, if somebody said, ‘What’s your favorite type of music?’, you had an answer — it was rap, it was metal, it was a specific kind of metal, and that was it. ‘You listen to these things too?’ ‘No. Fuck those things.’ It’d be that serious. And now people don’t even think about it.”
