Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda: "We never held the flag for nu-metal"


Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda was recently interviewed by NME, you can read an excerpt below.


He said that even though the band got categorized as a nu metal act, they never actually identified with the genre. Shinoda said: "We never held the flag for nu-metal, it was associated with frat rock. Arrogant, misogynistic, and full of testosterone; we were reacting against that."
