The interplay between Shinoda and Bennington channels the classic dual harmonies of Layne Staley and Jerry Cantrell. However, both vocalists also possess a hip hop swagga, canvassing the stage like wolves on the hunt. That swag serves them well, when Jay-Z shows up for genre-bending live renditions of "Numb/Encore" and "Jigga What/Faint" from their boundary-breaking collaboration Collision Course album. With mash-ups via indie heroes like Girl Talk all the rage right now, it proves that Linkin Park and Jay-Z were (and still are) way ahead of their time.
The slower songs, "The Little Things Give You Away" and "Leave Out All The Rest," felt like a resurrection of U2's earlier melancholic pop stylings. However, the real standout is "Breaking the Habit." Chester's voice sounds stripped bare, but he pours a lot of heart into the track. Taking center stage over a dreamy piano melody, he guides the song to heights of rock ecstasy.
Road to Revolution is a live record packs the punch of a Linkin Park show, without the stench and sweat. On an eight-minute jam for "Bleed It Out" all hell breaks loose, and the song illuminates everything great about Linkin Park. Cranked up, these songs kill. Linkin Park deserve to continue their reign on the road and the charts.

"Why so Serious ? Lets put a smile on that face !"
"I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you, stranger."
who are living in complete bliss.
Believe me life is unfair,
and soon you are going to find something amiss.
Are you all really that stupid?
To believe in fairy tale romances?
To believe you have been struck by cupid,
and fall pray to flirtatious advances??
However in love don't crush your dreams,
Don't let go of ur ambitious life,
Cuz later u wil kno it was 'infatuation' it seems,
and HELL who told u you'd be his wife?
Stop flaunting that colour red,
and quit floating on cloud nine.
Cuz later u will find ur soul dead,
and it will be the apocalypse of your sunshine.
Shun that feeling from grooming your cheeks,
that feeling which turns you scarlet pink.
Cuz recovering from the downfall will take you weeks,
And into depression you will helplessly sink.
I know that love in you is blaringly rife,
but don't let it get to your heart and head,
Trust me it will completely destroy your life,
leaving you transfixed, depressed and dead.

lives but this I felt something bit different.
That guy is one of the most respected guy in the family and probably in his school, college and at work. I just wonder how can people be as cheery and good all the time like him ! Well that won't work on a brute, heartless and terrific looking guy like me, would it ? Like all other do, there I was getting advice from him to study hard and well for a bright future, and with giggle that wasn't that obvious ? I was like, "Ya I know" kinda thing in my mind and what came out from my mouth frankly speaking was I had never done one very important thing in my life - Hardwork. Well apart from intelligence, sincerity and hardwork are the key factors necessary for successfully passing the hurdle of IIT-JEE and the rest of Life. Moreover, I'm not one of those good boy of the family nor the respected one among family members and friends, which added fuel to the fire of my problems. Our discussion regarding career went on, he explained to be confident enough and also have other options open if at all any tragedy occurs. Ya I understood by the way he said that even if hes thrown out of job now he still thinks of doing a M.Ba course or something and other job offers by quitting himself. Ya he had to agree that it was a bit of show off too ;)
This talk from career went on to being a good person, rather how we later agreed upon a right person that is. Well being practical is good, but that doesn't always work when it comes to family and friends you know ! Not being philosophic, but I always wondered why we ever lived ... well this is no new thing, but just for people who actually gave a thought over this fact. We are lucky, because till we earn, we have parents who give us food we want, all what we need, we enjoy our lives doing all sorts of shit ... playing, hanging out, dating, surfing the internet ... why even writing this blog ! There are people who don't care a thing about their parents and dear ones who give their lives for the happiness of the children, most of the youngsters doing crap as I said earlier, dating multiple people without no heart of relationship, nor having no sense of duty towards the nation ... and on the other hand there are beggars on the street, just living, No I will rather say existing for the sake of bread to fill the tummy, their only motive in life is just to add a few more minutes to it .... well what can I do .. I can't change the world you know by just sitting here on my laptop and typing this for you to see ... but who knows what next can happen ... I've never always been a spiritual man, but whenever I see such misery and poverty just anywhere on the streets like air, or the cries in the battlefield where many brave men give away their lives, it has always led me to question to God's purpose .....
'PPOOOMMM ......' shrieked the train as it came .... well that lazy guy took time going and getting 'settled' on his seat. Well its not everyone whos the most idiot of all the brothers and sisters of the family, and having your siblings and cousins doing well while you being the villain like in the movies ... well theres no other way to it, we've got our lives to discover, face, create and live .... whats right and wrong was already known, the main gamble was to do the right thing (whether others liked it or not) ... precisely when it comes to saving money for education and clearing debts laid by parents for the child's future then spending it on worthless things ... its not everyday you get such 'doses' you see :)
The Train began to move away, and as I waved Good Bye, my mind pondered on what all we spoke, especially those words that theres no sixth sense, we already know whats right and wrong ... its upto to us to do take the right decision and do the required stuff .... I was expected to grow bigger, not only by size and brains, but also by thinking, and with reducing the boiling point of my head and being more poliet :)
As I walked back, one thing which I already knew was polished in my mind - I have to become more stronger, not my muscles but by a person, one who is capable of clearing all hurdles of life, even if I have to fall many a times .... afterall like any warrior searching for justice, as a student and human I must give my best shot so that I have no regrets in the future, as that we all seek, and few of us ever find.

They have paid their dues….In a world of music we are rarely ever surrounded by bands that make such an impact. To many people worldwide the Beatles are regarded as the best rock band to ever grace our earth. In my opinion that isn’t quite true.
In a day and age of free downloading, file sharing, and mp3’s bands are stranding on the shelf waiting to be picked up. Selling albums nowadays is very hard to do, and unlike when the Beatles were selling out like crazy, bands nowadays are struggling to break the 500, 000 mark of gold status. But once in a generation there is resurgence and the music community is rocked to the core and has no choice but to stand up and take notice. Enter Linkin Park. The Nu-Metal turned Alternative rock band that exploded the very second they entered the new millennium. With only 3 albums under there belt, they have already sold over 50 million albums worldwide, 2 Grammy awards to call their own and 8 number 1 songs. With all 3 of their outstanding albums debuting at number 1 and first week sale numbers that match the Beatles how could you not be impressed. Chester Bennington (Lead Vocals, Songwriter), Mike Shinoda (Emcee, Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards and Songwriter), Brad Delson (Lead Guitar), Dave “Phoenix” Farrell (Bass Guitar) and Joe Hahn( Turntables and Programming) have all built themselves on hard work.
Incredible achievements to date – Linkin Park success came after being rejected numerous times on a record deal knocking on doors over a 3 year period (1996 -1999). They struggled to sign a record deal three times with Warner Bros. Records. It was such a low period for Linkin Park. They changed their band name initially from Xero, to Hybrid Theory, and finally to Linkin Park. Why Linkin Park? Well the story goes that, they wanted to change their name to Lincoln Park, a place in Santa Monica, CA but they needed a domain name for their web site and chose the name Linkin Park instead because it was readily available and cheap. Being determined and persistent, and after facing numerous rejections from several major record labels, Linkin Park turned to Jeff Blue for additional help who is now the vice president of Warner Bros. Records, helped the band sign a deal with the company in 1999. The band released their breakthrough album, Hybrid Theory, the following year. The rest is history.
Stepping out of the scene of another mediocre rock band, these men have focused there art on brilliant lyrics and innovative music videos that capture the eye and leave you dazzled. From starting off to humble beginnings to playing to a worldwide audience of sold out arenas averaging 50,000 fans Linkin Park has set themselves above all the rest… and maybe set themselves on a whole other level compared to the Beatles.

"Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in Love .... How on Earth can you explain in terms of Chemistry and Physics so important a Biological phenomenon as first love ? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour .... Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute ..... That's Relativity. " :)
