Prince William and Linkin Park

January 22, 2010

First the Russian president…now Prince William:

From January 20th piece in Australia’s 7News: “In a general discussion of musical tastes, Mr Rudd asked Prince William what music he liked. The prince replied: ‘Mine’s very varied – I like rock, Linkin Park … Kanye West’.”

  6. ct for PM on January 26, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Only in Australia would we ask what music Prince William likes!😛

  7. jasmine on January 26, 2010 at 12:57 pm

    of course!no surprise!but i think since you released your MTM,many politicians have begun to like you i think!and you are really green and peaceful band!thats the reason!

  8. Erinlouise on January 25, 2010 at 7:17 pm

    This is true Andrew but you shouldn’t call people names just because they did share theyre opinion and its different from yours

  9. Andrew on January 25, 2010 at 10:56 am

    Hey Erinlouise! you don’t have to share your opinion, keep it in mind! I love every single song LP wrote, ESPECIALLY MTM it’s the best album! and Yeah I’m a real Fan! and LinkinGabo is a fag!

  10. TerryBolger on January 25, 2010 at 10:11 am

    It seems that your LP music is one that inspires politics (to make their best I hope))
    Would you plan to work out an anthem?))

  11. Pori Pori Bring it on! on January 25, 2010 at 9:48 am

    Too idiot, go hoping somewhere.

  12. Pori Pori Bring it on! on January 25, 2010 at 9:43 am

    Time runs, not tells.

  13. Dra on January 25, 2010 at 7:53 am

    Agree with dronnington, you should limit the comments to one post per person. This is absurd…

  14. Erinlouise on January 25, 2010 at 4:30 am

    hey mike is it possible to limit the amount of posts that one person can make?

    And to everyone else stop bitching amongst yourselves! everyone has their own opinion, and we should be able to share our opinions with mike and the rest of LP without having someone else try, and with a keyboard of all things, to force theirs down our throats(seriously your not hardcore because you found the caps key)
    true fans don’t have to like everything about an artist! how can you pick on someone for liking something less than you do? theyre still a fan, if you have no creative criticism to give (which is saying what you dont like and offering a solution)or anything nice to say dont comment!

  15. Dronnington on January 25, 2010 at 3:55 am

    MIKE please turn back login,1post and so. Do you see what’s happened? Not ever absolute freedom is right way.In world there are many stupid people(…no, they aren’t people…it’s busters)
    Prince and Medvedev really interesting.)

  16. Sofisofi on January 25, 2010 at 3:43 am

    Why are the coments closed on the new post?😦

  17. Oberamukamanabushha on January 25, 2010 at 1:53 am

    LP is my inspiration.

  18. Chmikster_Hahn on January 24, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    That’s awesome.🙂

  19. Ahmed20xx on January 24, 2010 at 3:03 pm

    dont expect less ..LINKIN Park is royal

  20. Shade on January 24, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    Hey, mike. Great to hear so many famous people are into LP!

    We’re still waiting for your best of ’09 album/song list.😀

  21. andreas215 on January 24, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    Hey Mike, did you also watch this video frome the birthay song guy?

  22. Peace&Love on January 24, 2010 at 9:49 am

    to Frank
    thanks very much for the link!
    LINKIN PARK&Figure Skating is awesome!!!

  23. RaraTayessem on January 24, 2010 at 9:15 am

    To Andrew: Don’t bitch at people.
    They’re allowed their own opinion about the band/music.
    Personally I love MTM, but I confess it took a while for me to REALLY love it. I was disappointed at first, but now I love it.
    People’s opinions are there own – don’t rag them for it.
    They’re not saying they hate the band… just that they weren’t impressed with a particular album.
    No one is talking shit… and please remember younger users use this site, so try and keep the profanity down, too.
    I’m not ‘talking shit’ to you, either… I just feel your comment was harsh and a little unjustified.
    Your opinion + their opinion = everyone’s individual right and NOT connected.

  24. Peace&Love on January 24, 2010 at 5:04 am

  25. Shervin_lp_iran on January 24, 2010 at 4:48 am

    FU.. THE USA.I JUST HEARD THAT THE USA MADE THE HAYTI EARTHQUAKE.AND NOW YOUR MAKING SONGS FOR THEM.YOU AMERICANS ARE SICK
    THEY WANT TO MAKE AN EARTHQUAKE IN IRAN.I KNOW It.
    MIKE SHINODA WE DONT CARE ABOUT YOu…YOUR AMERICAN…

  26. frank on January 24, 2010 at 4:37 am

    Look, this isn’t the Prince William but is awesome

  27. Cailtin on January 24, 2010 at 3:02 am

    haha yeah I read that too ^^

  28. Jack L. on January 24, 2010 at 2:41 am

    When will Linkin Park come to Israel?

  29. MelMinerva on January 24, 2010 at 2:07 am

    Thats great🙂

    this video is about the European Figure Skating Championship – these two are dancing the free program to one of your greatest songs🙂

  30. Souneik on January 24, 2010 at 1:22 am

    Parameter, Assburger… Whatever the fuck your name is, do me a favor right… shut the fuck up.

  31. Joanna on January 23, 2010 at 10:16 pm

    Linkin Park and kayne west should not be mentioned in the same sentence

  32. daniz on January 23, 2010 at 9:36 pm

    I agree
    is a very sad situation
    saludos Mike!!

  33. c on January 23, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    mike, i have an idea, why you don’t create a register system to post, they put a lot of spam in the comments, sad, but if register will be easier
    thanks

  34. DJ Intensity on January 23, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    I wonder when we will hear any news about 8-Bit rebellion…

  35. Lori on January 23, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    yikes aseraje, do you have a life, or are you trying to just get a rise out of people?🙂

  36. Lukas on January 23, 2010 at 5:35 pm

    mike i would recommend the 1 comment limit thing back…

  37. Andrew on January 23, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    Hey, you fucking LinkinGabo bitch, and everyone who posts these shitty comments! You’re fucking morons! I love LP, and MTM is fucking an awesome album! The songs became more thoughtful and meaningful, when you listen to every beat, and hearken to every little sound! If’d have to choose between Hybrid Theory and MTM, i’d choose MTM, cuz the lyrics are great! Why am I explaining it to you bitch, i haven’t got enough brain pieces to understand me! I think you should listen to Spears bitch! LP is such a ledendagy band, nobody can compare to them! Mike made this “Comment Thing” not for those sucks who want a shit talk, if you want a shit talk write me! I’ll turn you fucking ass inside out!

  38. Lori on January 23, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    Thats Awesome, you know you have pure talent when you get compliments from all of these wonderful people!🙂

  39. LinkinPark on January 23, 2010 at 3:58 pm

  41. Michael on January 23, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    I always told my family LP is the music for everyone

  42. linkingabo on January 23, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    me, as one of your biggest fans PLEASE YOU not to make a record like the MTM is! …Mike, your music is so boring lately! ..I know that you do your best and trying to make a record no one has ever heard anything like that before, but, PLEASE, what you´ve built you lay to waste! it is not Linkin Park any more…new album, new style, okey, but its getting closer to pop than rock…

  43. Shadower_liltani on January 23, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Aw, Mikey, everybody likes you. You must be so proud. Ya know, ten years ago, not many people were talking about LP this much. Now, liking LP has become kind of a really cool trend. What a way ya’ll have come.

  44. Valentina on January 23, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    That just funny! LOL Of course if you are a great band!

  45. shima on January 23, 2010 at 1:11 pm

    ‘First the Russian president…now Prince William’ then Rafael Nadal😀

  48. Calliope on January 23, 2010 at 11:47 am

    This is really really great! Have you ever thought that you would have such a success? You are probably, if not the only one then sure on of the few bands that have such a big width of listeners! And it’s not only the presidents and the princes that listen to your music but even 3 years old kids! We talk about THAT big width of listeners!! Check this little boy sining In The End ..he rocks!!😛 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MUskWInZsC8

  49. Skywalker on January 23, 2010 at 11:07 am

    You’re getting political Mike!🙂

  50. daniz on January 23, 2010 at 10:32 am

    Excelente Mike!!!

  51. rubyred on January 23, 2010 at 9:18 am

  61. Wotur on January 23, 2010 at 7:05 am

    lol thats a proof to claim that you guys rock!!!🙂
    but in my class major of them like those worthless Korea bands. I extremely hate them with all of my life. I was even so pissed off when they compare those sh!tty bands with rock bands like Linkin Park. I dont care if they are assuming stubborn or stupid, for sure.

  62. Maria on January 23, 2010 at 6:32 am

    Hey, I love this design)))). And I never thought that Prince William likes LP. It gives him pretty much honor.

  63. RaraTayessem on January 23, 2010 at 6:25 am

    “I can’t do any beatboxing. I’m not so good at that.”
    Lol – I’m trying to imagine Prince William beatboxing!
    Still… his taste in music ranks him higher, in my books, than he did before.
    Let’s face it, people… us UKers are the BEST!

  64. NeNe on January 23, 2010 at 6:09 am

    Wow, now I like Prince Williams even more than I used to..😀

  65. c on January 23, 2010 at 6:00 am

  74. CuteWhiteBunny on January 23, 2010 at 3:35 am

    It seems like you guys are very popular amongst famous people. Next thing you know, other political leaders will be announcing that they like Linkin Park.

  75. spanielya on January 23, 2010 at 2:48 am

    Haha yeah our president is the first! We proud of our president) So I think everybody like to listen to Linkin Park! It is interesting who’ll make a declaration next?… Why did not your president still do it? It’s impossible that he doesn’t like Linkin Park!
    Good day for you & your family, Mike!=)

  76. Alex Thanat on January 23, 2010 at 2:38 am

    How’s that sound.

  85. Vari on January 23, 2010 at 12:57 am

    God bless Linkin Park!:) LP is revolution in music:)Good revolution:)

  86. AseraJe on January 23, 2010 at 12:57 am

    So you’re busy go chasing your name.

  93. Zara (zara19) on January 22, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    I can’t imagine him dancing around to New Divide in the palace, or when hes flying his helicopters..

    He’ll be my king one day :S Maybe he’ll ask you to play when he gets the thrown

  94. Celestial on January 22, 2010 at 10:29 pm

    Since when did Kanye West make rock music?

  95. abby on January 22, 2010 at 10:29 pm

  96. Carla on January 22, 2010 at 10:23 pm

    im not surprised!

  97. justbiteme9 on January 22, 2010 at 10:22 pm

    Well, you are really talented so I can well believe it. But LP and Kayne West in the same sentence is indeed a FAIL… but hey, I’m not who to judge if I told you who’s my second favorite band I would probably get banned.

    BTW, I love the new colors and the “Notify me of new posts via email” option, actually I like the new way of post comments too, it’s easier and faster. Thank you Mike and people who made this possible.
