Linkin Park – A Place For My Head
Had to run home and play some heavy guitar music to reset following the 80s pop mania of Fenech-Soler at 93 feet east on Friday night (think gold lamé jackets, sequins and spaceship noises – I had a really fun evening :)) and, luckily, I have this:
The repetition of the words “you try to take the best of me, go away” building up to a screamed, aggressive “GO AWAY” is just perfect for an angry young person who hates the world and everyone in it (;)). But aside from that, it also has a fantastic beat.
Other tracks of note include ‘Points of Authority’, which was used in the Roswell episode ‘Meet the Dupes’, and of course, ‘Numb’, famously reworked as ‘Encore/Numb’, a collaboration with Jay-Z which propelled Linkin Park to mass-market stardom. Overall, an energising and totally pumped rock band. More on the MySpace.
