Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington Says Salty Fans Should “Move The Fuck On” From “Hybrid Theory”


Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington doesn’t believe the band have ‘sold out’ with their upcoming new album “One More Light“. He recently told Music Week:

“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!”

By the the band’s own admission, the bulk of “One More Light” (out May 19th) will certainly reflect the music they’ve released from it to date. When further asked about why the group decided to move on from the sound “Hybrid Theory“—which has sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. alone—he offered:

“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 fucking years ago. It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the fuck on. You know what I mean?”

Bennington‘s latest comments echo similar concerns regarding his age that he recently shared.
