    Wow ..Congratulations LP.

  11. WTF on November 24, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    lol @ “Alternative” Well, it’s better than when they used to call you Pop. Congrats though.

    Mike knocked his wife up? More proof he did Barack Your wold. Puppet doesnt like to pull out either. Seriously where did this rumor/fact even start? It’s not like Anna is a celeb and would be caught by the paparazzi…. so who is stalking Mike and his Wife to notice? LOL.

  12. ThePrincess on November 24, 2008 at 6:17 pm

    yaaaaaaaay YOU GUYS IS AMAZING …Congratulations, and keep up the awesome work!!!

  13. ShadowerLiltani on November 24, 2008 at 5:58 pm

    YAY!!!!!!! does a dance LP won an award! LP won an award! Ya’ll aren’t alternative at all, but hey, an award is an award and you guys sound way more unique than anyone in the alternative genre, minus Paramore cause their pretty cool. Yes, all you Fuse video voting obsessive people, I LIKE PARAMORE.

  14. Jhuryn on November 24, 2008 at 5:51 pm

    YAY! Congrats LP! I watched the whole show and I was very disappointed by the lack of rock representation. Why weren’t any of the top selling rock bands performing at the show? I wanted to see some Shinedown and Seether! We didn’t even get to see the presentation for best rock band! What do you think Mike?

  15. caleb_bozeman on November 24, 2008 at 5:17 pm

    I was pissed off that they showed you guys won for a second. BUT you gotta set the record straight if Anna is pregnant

  16. TiffTiff33LP on November 24, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    I watched theAMAs,and i dident see you guys,did you guys even go?^^Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!You guys woooooooooooooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!^^(overjoyed)!!!!^^

HOPPE SOOOOOO. no doubt, you will be an amazing daddy ^^

  20. Madlen on November 24, 2008 at 1:38 pm

    Hell Yeah!:DI (of course) voted for this one too:DI’m sad that you lost to Paramore on the fuse thing…damn!

  21. MaoChouChan on November 24, 2008 at 11:46 am

    @Antje: I don’t have a cramp in my arm but my eyes hurt from sitting in front of the computer all weekend! I’m sorry about the Fuse contest too, but I think if we’d cheated like the others we’d won anyway, so forget about it. WE HAVE AN AMA!!! Thanks to everyone who voted for LP for Favourite Alternative Artist and congrats to LP!!!! =3

  22. analoggirl on November 24, 2008 at 10:34 am

    Congrats! Are there any awards that you’re still aspiring to win? Goals you’d like to achieve?

  23. antje on November 24, 2008 at 10:34 am


    Im sorry about the Fuse contest. We voted like hell…. I had a cramp in my arm from pushing the button… πŸ˜‰

  24. skindesbous on November 24, 2008 at 10:32 am

    CONGRATS! You deserve it πŸ˜‰ I read… is Anna pregnant? :O πŸ˜€

  25. Kalini on November 24, 2008 at 10:22 am


  26. Mikeshi_Linkfort on November 24, 2008 at 9:49 am

  27. slimshinoda on November 24, 2008 at 9:26 am

    Congrats Mike and all members of LP! And for us too!

    Hey Mike, maybe you don’t like say anything about your life out LP, but is Anna pregnant?!?
    If your answer will be “yes”, I’m very happy for you and Anna, so I say double congrats!

  28. MarishkaLP on November 24, 2008 at 9:17 am

    Congrats Linkin Park!!! still sorry for Fuse contest… we really wanted you to win, but.. anyway, we all know thet you’re the best! no doubts πŸ˜‰

  29. kornkob on November 24, 2008 at 9:10 am

    Hey Mike, congratulations on the win! You guys deserve it!

    I just wanna bring up an issue. I’m a Deaf fan of linkin park, I can hear enough to enjoy the music, however I need lyrics or subtitles to be able to follow your work. Your Frat Party dvd had subtitles which made the whole thing very enjoyable for me, and I didn’t feel left out, as many other music DVDs tend not to include subtitles. That was something I really liked about Linkin Park. However I recieved the R2R cd/dvd today, and I discovered that it has no subtitles which comes as a disappointment to me. Why is that the case?

  30. ZU13KA on November 24, 2008 at 9:06 am

    Yay!yay!yay! πŸ™‚ awsum, was a bit worried,only jus a teensiest bit tho, coz u guys where up against coldplay and they realy are a powerhouse but clearly we the fans of lp can kick votin ass bra, hehe anyway u guys deserve it congrats

  31. miKer0cks on November 24, 2008 at 8:55 am

    Damn…I’m so sad 😦 You didnt make to the semi finals on fuse 😦 Well I dont care!!! You are the best and we know it πŸ˜‰ Congrats on winning the AMA!!! You absolutely deserved it πŸ˜€ KEEP ROCKING!!! ❀

  32. AS_21 on November 24, 2008 at 8:55 am

    Congrats! you’re amazing! πŸ˜‰ AMA -> important award i think.

  33. Raspberry on November 24, 2008 at 8:45 am

    Firstly congratulations! and secondly i just finished watching RTR and it was awesome! I was there with my hubby and son and we got into the meet and greet ( hope you liked 20 Qs and the Superman Mug) … I’ve read all the bitching on the forums about songs being cut etc and i knew i wouldn’t be disappointed. Thank you for another fantastic experience guys πŸ™‚

  34. alyeska39 on November 24, 2008 at 8:35 am

    Woot! I watched the whole thing simply because I was flipping channels and it was on. I didn’t even know if you guys were nominated for anything, lol. I just saw at the end that y’all had won one of the awards they didn’t show. I’m not usually one for watching award shows, but that was kinda fun, even if they didn’t show y’all’s category. Anyway, congrats on the AMA!

  35. Mic77 on November 24, 2008 at 8:11 am


  36. lp_fm_fan on November 24, 2008 at 7:50 am

    i commented about this before. πŸ˜›
    but yay!!! we lost the fuse awards, but oh well! AMA’s are more important, yes?

  37. affelay on November 24, 2008 at 7:39 am

    great extra’s on the new dvd. But are there extra’s on the live in texas dvd?

  38. Astat on November 24, 2008 at 7:17 am

    Hey Mike, I’m guessing you already know, but Evidence (Dilated Peoples/H! VLTG3 on Reanimation) has a new album coming out tomorrow.

  39. Shinoda77 on November 24, 2008 at 7:16 am

    Congratulations!!looking forward to the RTR DVD released in Taiwan on Dec. 5

    btw,have you guys already talked about Asia tour with Taiwan’s organizer?cause the organizer put Linkin Park’s information on their site, and date info is “to be continued” . so I’d like to know if you’ve contacted each other or not. hope it can be held sooner, cause probably I’d have served in the army after August or September.

    anyway still look forward your shows and new album!!

  57. Linkin_Paranoik on November 24, 2008 at 4:06 am

  58. Saleha on November 24, 2008 at 3:48 am

    congrats you guys! i knew you’d win! =]

  59. Vitor on November 24, 2008 at 3:46 am

    Hey Mike, I’m happy you guys won. Unfortunately, we couldn’t make you guys win Fuse’s prize.
    I know it will sound a little off-topic, but i’ve been thinking that maybe you and your team could add an option to the site, where people choose their favorite posts, and when someone access my profile, for example, they’ll see what my favorite posts are. I don’t know, is just sounded interesting πŸ™‚
    But anyway, congratulations!

  60. tonavanix on November 24, 2008 at 3:39 am

    Congratulations guys!!.. πŸ˜€

  61. missdunno on November 24, 2008 at 3:38 am

    Congrats, you’re definitely the best! Keep doing good music! I was kinda disappointed that you’ve lost the fuse award, but now I’m happy for you. Btw, I’m gonna buy RTR after high school, in a couple of hours, I can’t wait…

  62. eleni1997 on November 24, 2008 at 3:36 am

  66. Aqua101 on November 24, 2008 at 2:46 am

    For Mike, the rest of LP band members & all LP’s fans worldwide…Congratulations!!! Cheers everyone!!! And next round for sure LP will arise again to be on top of the chart (as usual). Make a gig with your music, boys…and you willl definately shake the world!! Keep up your unique beat & sound from each of you (like Reanimation Styles which I think is the best of all LP albums). Oh, I also wanna ask this : how come now it seems u seldom hv any new clips for LPTV? We wanna see “behind scene” things (on yr PR tour, Worldwide tour, events, etc). Plz do it again. Take care…;)

  67. Fox on November 24, 2008 at 2:45 am

    CONGRATS guys on clinching this award! I knew you guys would! :o) I waited in anticipation (all night) hoping to see you guys come up on stage or cruise on the red carpet. But it seems this category wasn’t on the list to be announced tonight. I’m sorry about the Fuse award. The LP nation put up a good fight… But hey, you guys won the AMA’s! Linkin Park IS the BEST alternative rock band, enough said! :o)

  77. lpfaint43 on November 24, 2008 at 12:45 am

    We worked like crazy people!! The paramore fans just stopped with eating, breathing and sleeping…

    But the newsposts on :s You can vote each day but in those newsposts stands: vote every week:s
    yeah i think if the deaquarters made not that mistake we had won.

  81. sassi_lp on November 23, 2008 at 11:44 pm

    you definately deserve it. See it as a recognition for your hard work and your loyalty to the fans out there.
    Congratulations!!!! Fuse’s best video is up next:D

  87. Hybr1d_7h3ory on November 23, 2008 at 11:15 pm

    Congratulations Mike, you and LP really deserve it. It is really good to see a band that has been around for more than 6 months that had one smash hit get the acclaim they undoubtably deserve.

    Pass on our congrats to the rest of the guys…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  88. EpilepticChickenScratch on November 23, 2008 at 11:12 pm

  93. lynndarwinharris on November 23, 2008 at 10:23 pm

    Congrats!!! Well deserved for all the hard work you guys do! Congrats again and have a good Night

  94. ritzifying on November 23, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    Am I understanding other people’s comments right? The AMAs didn’t even have a presentation for alternative rock?? That’s kind of ignorant.

    I forgot to watch and you know, I can’t find anything about you guys at the awards tonight on You’re not in the winners list (yet?), no pics from the red carpet, none from an acceptance speech. Nothing. I find plenty of Jonas Brothers and NKOTB gag on YouTube from the award show, but no LP. Hopefully there will be something that I can watch in the next couple of days.


  95. Philly_Willy on November 23, 2008 at 10:21 pm

    Congrats guys, you deserve it, I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like you guys
