    Loved Sixx John on “There They Go”, but this is just uninspired. Sorry homie.

  16. yun on May 22, 2008 at 11:41 am

    I really love “there they go”, but I hate these kind of r&b/hip hop videos where girls are just like a piece of meat to show, where they act like stupid dolls, fucking hate it. fuck.

  17. reese on May 22, 2008 at 9:06 am

    charlie bravo. cb. chester bennington. red baron. rb. rob bourdon. i’m sure you have other friends outside the band, but i find this kind of funny.

  18. SteppinRazor on May 22, 2008 at 8:59 am

    I dont know y people are complaining so much! Unless my knowledge of slang and euphemisms is all wrong, the song’s about wanting to pleasure a woman. WTF is wrong with that? Yes, it’s sexual but at least now its not just about the guy getting off. I think stuf like this is a VAST improvement over crap like Candyshop (50 Cent) wich was FAR MORE mysoginistic. Actualy, 1 could almost argue the opposite for Sixx John’s video/song. While the girls are dresed sexy, they look demure compared to alot of what u see these days. Sure, its not the greatest thing ever, but its not nearly THAT bad either! I thought it was kinda catchy. I DO agree with Pinkwater3 the candy references ARE gettin a bit old.

  19. SteppinRazor on May 22, 2008 at 8:51 am

    I feel silly. I only realized AFTER talking about it with MY friends, but I think I know something about YOUR friends. I can’t BELIEVE I never realized it before! In hindsight, it was a bit obvious… unless I’m TOTALLY wrong… am I making any sense here?

    Kudos Mike, you really had me going.

    I’ll post about the Sixx John vid in a couple minutes, apparently I typed out too many characters

  21. Noe_Kenji on May 22, 2008 at 8:04 am

    i really looooooooooooooove There They Go!!! One of my favorties of We Major!!!
    but…i don’t like that video… there’s so many videos of rappers whith girls shaking her asses… not very original..i’ve already see too much, not agree?

  22. Sammy on May 22, 2008 at 7:38 am

    the gun is fun lol

  23. merve on May 22, 2008 at 6:49 am

  24. NoFace on May 22, 2008 at 6:33 am

    Hey cupcake, the Mike Shinoda clan on the LPU are very happy and grateful that you have shown us your cans in the photos section. We all agree that you have a great set of cans there. Much respect. Cheers

  25. bec on May 22, 2008 at 5:48 am

    Your friends have some interesting names – good to see you have friends helping fuel your internet addiction

    Now show us art damn it!

  26. outlawserenade on May 22, 2008 at 5:24 am

    I beg you to keep in mind: No signing Sixx to warner. Or at least not until SOB’s Reseda Beach is in my hands, kthx. Or they are back to indie where they’re better off in the first place.

  27. M4LL0RY on May 22, 2008 at 5:19 am

    Yeah. The skeleton thing with the green background looks really cool. Is that part of the show?

    I’m ready for some pictures.

    Tired of the teasing. :

  28. maria on May 22, 2008 at 5:11 am

    That video is great) You’re the most impressive person that has ever existed on Earth)))) I’m not polishing the apple with you)
    It’s true) In a nutshell, it’s cat’s pajamas))) I’m full of beans today))))) Fiat Mike Shinoda))) Break a leg! (it means Good luck) And your home page really makes us all be full of beans) Thank you very much for that positive energy you give us all))))))))))

  29. Fishgoingwest on May 22, 2008 at 4:33 am

    Of course,I know “your man,sixx John”

    I really really really like the rap style in the song “There They Go”,from the beginning to the end!

    Even “one time,for my machine shop crue;and then it’s two time,S.0.B and LP too;and then it’s Mike and Sixx on the track and then …” is so so so so cool.I just enjoy simply one time,two time,three time,four time

    Rapping cool so cool!!!

    So agressive a song,awesome rap words!

    And Green Latern remix There They Go is also supreme.

    And the logo AK47 is amazing,I only doubt that whether it can really be used as an AK47.

    Keep an eye on Mr. Sixx John,the video is fun!

  30. PinkWater3 on May 22, 2008 at 4:03 am

    its awesome that you’re posting a lot lately. it makes me happy. bubblegum? candies are so overused in the hip hop industry. seriously.

  31. Reem on May 22, 2008 at 3:55 am

    your very welcome, the fact that you posted to say thanks shows how much you deserve it all, great pics by the way,the second one(was it the 2nd?)with the skull paint and the green(?)background is cool,not what im used to from you but thats a good thing!well done, i cant wait to see everyone of them! onto sixx john, i think its cool that you told us about it and all,shows what type of friend you are,but man thats not a cool vid,i dont see the need for any vid to have a half naked woman,its not on its discusting,im glad you dont do that but again thats part of why i like lp,mm any who thanks for posting,have a wonderfull day!
