“Numb” – Linkin Park (Meteora)
This kind of “modern rock” does nothing for me. Even if I was able to ignore the ever-present my-life-sucks theme (which is pretty danged tough to do) the music alone would drive me away.
Start with a little Nine Inch Nails-esque intro bit, slip into the lighter part of the first verse (which on “Numb” sounds like Depeche Mode) and then smash into the chorus…full of crushing, down-tuned guitars. Now repeat this for several more go-rounds, then finish up with the Nine Inch Nails thing.
Have people’s attention spans dwinded so much that they can’t remember the Reznor sound? Gees, it was only a coupla years ago.
