    ESP response to Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park)

    When lack of choice in words cost you an Endorsement:



    "So, in short, ESP is pleased to announce we won't be on the new Linkin Park album, though of course we wish them the best in their ongoing endeavors."

    I saw this on Facebook, I fucking love it. Oh you're gonna get all hipster on everyone now and act like metal and its instruments are a bit passť? Bye then.

    Pretty sure that cretinous cunt who wears the ear defenders played them originally.

    This thread's just brought up an entire new hatred for this band. I grew up during the nu metal period, it was aimed directly at me, but I wore a patched denim jacket and listened to thrash like the true high school fucking loser I was. However... A lot of my friends listened to all the 'in' bands at the time and I didn't mind a lot of it. But when someone showed me these fucks (I was in college by this point I'm pretty sure, 2000-2001) I fucking raged so hard. Especially the guitarist. Man, I've never hated a musician so much. The baggy trousers, the faux need for ear defenders, the shitty attitude he had towards "flashy" guitar playing (read an interview with him and he laid into guitar solos, said all that flashy stuff is "boring") I could've kicked a hole through time and fucking space. I hate their vocalists, I hate their style, I hate their riffs, I hate how they look... Never heard a single song or even riff of theirs that I've liked, and I'm a pretty open minded dude when it comes to metal. So I don't just hate them because I've lumped them in with all the other nu metal acts, because as I said, some of it was cool... They're just flat out objectively terrible and it boggles my mind how they got so huge.

    Anyway.. what was the question?

    This band sucked then, they suck now. ESP used to be awesome, now they've managed to fuck up their brand so that nothing really makes sense to anyone. I'd say it's a win/win proposition!
