Linkin Park on SNL Feb 5; Dana Carvey Hosting

January 14, 2011

Quickie announcement: Linkin Park will be playing Saturday Night Live on February 5. Dana Carvey will be hosting. (Party on, Garth…)

BTW, last time we played SNL, Molly Shannon hosted. Looks like we’re a great match for returning SNL cast members…who’s next? Steve Martin? Eddie Murphy? Gary Kroeger?

    Hi Mike,

    I know you like lots of good music, especially hip hop. And you constantly looking for new stuff.
    My friends released new album this autumn:
    Enjoy! Hope, you’ll like it.
    It would be great to hear your opinion.

    lpu come to you, a lot of talks about the new chat room. Is there a way to get the old on back? Or something actually looks like the old one. With they weren’t the user list, the pms. Some members were upset, because they couldn’t use the same username from the old lpu, some are happy to have got the change to change their names. We the members would like our old website back; it was nothing wrong with it. It never lagged, or froze. You had the whole site to do a lot of things. And also we liked how it was private, keep people guessing what was going on inside. for the whole thing, same mess. on message. I have other people who feels the same way, to get old lpu back. *feb 5 :3*

    I know this is probably going to fall on deaf ears, but I have to try. Before the album came out I was super excited. Really was looking forward to hearing the new styles and everything about the album. So I purchased the super deluxe edition with all the trimmings. Except, I didn’t get any album til November. I still haven’t got the signed skateboard deck either. I’m not blaming the band at all, but it sucks when the company responsible responds to me, and promises the board, 2 free tickets and a meet and greet with the band, and 3 months later, still no response after their *promise*. If anybody from the and can read this, I’d really appreciate your help. Email is

    Let me echo the sentiments of some others on here… That’d be awesome to see you and the other, or some, of the other guys participate in one of the sketches! I know that’d be one of your, “kill me now, please. My life has been fulfilled” moments.

  24. htx2m3bc on January 14, 2011 at 10:54 pm

    Will be looking forward to it. Because not only is this show awesome. You guys are too. Thanks for the heads up!!!

  26. whosmurry on January 14, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    I LOVE Dana Carvey. This is gonna be great. By the way, do you remember The Dana Carvey Show? It was on for like 20 minutes in the 90s, but the writer’s room was full of talent. Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Robert Smigel, Dave Chappelle, Louis CK… The DVDs are available out there somewhere. I think you would enjoy it. Or… Oh wait, they’re on Youtube:

  27. ErbseLP on January 14, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    lol cool. 😀 Can’t wait to see it.

    And omg Hans & Franz(my fathers second name!)… the first what I thought “oh no, whats coming now?” but it’s funny. xD
    Sound funny how he says “ach du lieber Himmel”. xD

    YAY! SNL FTW!!! I wouldn’t mind it at all if ya’ll got Steve Martin to come back and host. Imagine Brad and Steve in the same room together… I bet Stryker would be a tad jealous, though XD

  37. EpicLinkinPark on January 14, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Sha-wing! Game on! Haha, I love Wayne’s World. This is so epic, I can’t wait to see this SNL. Perfect Host and Perfect Musical guest, one word for this show. EPIC. Hope all is well Mike, Take care.

  38. vickykun on January 14, 2011 at 2:03 pm
