    I am so sad that I missed this. 8|

    Also, I think people need to post more videos here in your comments.

    I do think that, because of that small kitten attached to your friend’s crotch, you need to see the rumors going around about you all:

    You have been warned. They are onto your rapist. o:

  17. millalp94 on February 9, 2011 at 1:35 pm

  25. KalyeSound on February 8, 2011 at 6:16 am

  27. neoshida on February 8, 2011 at 5:12 am

    Hi Mike. Just wanna say thanks for all the things you’ve done over the past years. Your music keep me very much alive. I remember how exciting it was to listening to Hybrid Theory for the first time. I still a school boy at that time. I was jumping crazy over each track. It is the best moment of my life. This morning i woke up realize that I need to go to work. My best friend get married pretty soon. My mom keep asking me to buy a house. What the hell Mike? It sucks growing up… Mike, I just wannabe the school boy, lying on bed at night, listening to Hybrid Theory and dream about LP like I used to.

    10 plus years and I still you biggest fan.

  28. melbapinckney on February 7, 2011 at 8:18 pm

    Cool man! Cool Lasers! Totally Awaesome Dudes! You guys did great on SNL!!! πŸ˜€ BTW, I love that stuff lion you’re holding, Mike! πŸ™‚

  29. act75 on February 7, 2011 at 7:22 pm

    I hope this is cool to post this here Mike,

    I got an extra ticket to the show in San Diego I’m trying to give away for free

    now that I’ve got your attention…
    The person who was supposed to come along backed out last minute because of school and I’m looking for someone to go with – preferably someone laid back but still outgoing (no creeps nor people with chazzy chaz tattooed on their forehead and the like). Just trying to have an awesome first live show experience with Linkin Park with someone that enjoys this awesome band as well.

    More info in next comment

  30. adiek84 on February 7, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    Great performances. The lasers were really cool, though I didn’t like the sunglasses. I prefer seeing eyes, but I understand that it must have been necessary. XD As “When they come for me” is one of my favourites from ATS, I was extra happy that you’ve decided to perform this song.

    @VanessaKatharina: I found most of Mike’s art just by googling, there’s also a gallery on Linkinpark.com.

    PS: Mike, I want more art. I know I write/say that all the time, but I just want more art! πŸ˜‰

  31. raiku12 on February 7, 2011 at 11:14 am

    Mike, I sincerely hope you can tell me what the lasers used in Waiting for the End were, they looked amazing!

  32. royhahn1 on February 7, 2011 at 10:15 am

    Great as always. πŸ˜€
    Really looking forward to the show in Hamburg.
    I already got my ticket.

    And here is a Pianocover of “The Catayst” by myself. (:

    WOW πŸ˜€ hot really cool mike

  36. jdennis88 on February 7, 2011 at 1:41 am

    Great performances, particularly When They Come For Me. It was flawless =]

  37. tinalein76 on February 7, 2011 at 12:34 am

    Coooooooooooool great pic :)I like it πŸ™‚
    I’ve also seen 2 great performances πŸ™‚
    Mike your smile is so great, the sunglasses look great guys πŸ™‚
    See you in Hamburg πŸ™‚

  39. camila on February 6, 2011 at 8:47 pm

    Mike, fue una grandiosa presentacion, excelentes temas y lo mas importante , su esencia, su entrega como banda es sinceramente genial, nunca pierdan esa energia, ese espiritu que los hace unicos. felicidades y sigan adelante brillando como lo saben hacer, saludos

  40. linkinparkforever275 on February 6, 2011 at 6:32 pm

    nice performance guys! See you soon!

  41. vanessakatharina on February 6, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    Hey there, Great Performance πŸ™‚ Buuut I have a bone to pick with you.. I cant seem to find any of your old art work anywhere online, and not much of your new stuff either. I’m sure its because of copyright issues and all, but its sad. That is all πŸ™‚

  42. lp13413 on February 6, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    I love when you guys perform on SNL. Just next time, I hope you don’t share a stage with Bieber

  43. lucasstefano15 on February 6, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    Hi Mike. I loved the theme of A Thousand Suns. Pretty cool to treat, and I bet the fans more quiet in the band, and I also loved. If you like my suggestion you can use. How about a “Linkin Park 5” talking about death, hell and life? You have a unique style, and may well use this in the studio. It’ll be a wonder.I Suggest 18 tracks: 15 length of 3 or 4 minutes divided into three groups, with an introduction at the beginning of the CD and an interlude between each grupo.Eu hopefully accept the suggestion. Even more.

  44. rockymtnbrenda on February 6, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Oh my, that SNL performance was one of the best I’ve ever seen. It was so far above the usual band performance on that show, and was just pure entertainment. I loved seeing Mike smile, he seemed to be energized from the crowd. Wish I could have been there..

  45. vickykun on February 6, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    Amazing Performance ;333
    And you looked sexy with those sunglasses

  46. regiw on February 6, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    As I live in Germany, I had to wait until this morning and look for it at YT to see the show. No material containing ATS songs are officially available here (not even if accessed from this site or linkinpark.com). 😦

    Of course, wait and search was worth it. Do you guys in US get often something like that on TV? ’cause we surely don’t. Linkin Park was again a breakthrought: the songs were perfectly chosen, the performance and video-like lights were amazing. The black-and-white idea was also great.

    It may sound silly, but I felt really proud of the guys and even a bit proud of myself for being fan of such an amazing band. But I dearly missed the Motherf****s… they belong in WTCFM.

  47. Misi on February 6, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    At first, I was wondering why nearly everyone was wearing sunglasses at night (lol) and black clothing, and then the lights started going. very awesome way to make the live show look like the video! Hope you guys had fun.

  48. mikeecem on February 6, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    awwwww,thank you ever so much it was awesome πŸ™‚ i want to see Linkin Park again, on show programs. I saw your pics on LP offical page, seemingly you had a great time, Super !!

    BTW: i love it your live performans on SNL πŸ™‚
    try to catch up catch up :))

  49. hybridshadow27 on February 6, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    Dudes, your performance was AMAZING!! The lazor lighting was extremely cool!! haha loved that picture that was posted on Facebook btw, that definitely explains the awesomeness of the lazors LOL

    I hope you guys really liked your stay in NYC. Haha, believe me, New Yorkers sure rock it furiously when you guys come. I do hope to see you again soon!! Because your concert at MSG was and is unforgettable !!


  50. jagta on February 6, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    YEah! Great! I wonder what color is you jacket…LOL

  51. Alexandra Nofi on February 6, 2011 at 10:51 am

    I didn’t get home until very late last night so I missed it. Are you intending to post up videos of the performance? I hate tooling around on youtube for that, it’s so annoying.

    So, how was NYC? I hope you had fun, some of my friends who went sounded like they had a blast. NYC and CT both have great energy πŸ˜€ I will be honest though, I refuse to buy tickets. There have been way to many issues and complaints surrounding Topspin and for that reason, I refuse to be ripped off. The price of two tickets is money that I need to buy oil to heat my apartment, as well. I think you can understand that.

  52. jenyqueiroz on February 6, 2011 at 7:41 am

    Hello, Mike…

    Your birthday is coming….
    How do you feel?

    Black and white huh. Yea, I see grays and no one else knows it.

  59. dorito82 on February 6, 2011 at 1:14 am

    I’m such an idiot. I caught the last 30 seconds, or less of the performance. I’ll watch it online somewhere, or here if you put up a vid… good night, Mike

  60. EpicLinkinPark on February 6, 2011 at 1:08 am

    I really loved this SNL you guys. You did an awesome performance and I love the fact that Wayne’s World did come back! I was like no way? “Way” Haha. I really loved the Black and White as well, that was pretty cool. Keep up the awesome work you guys, take care. See you Feb 23rd. :]

  61. kathyxx on February 5, 2011 at 11:02 pm

    I like how the picture of you guys that they have on their site is as old as hell. I remember it as a Meteora promo picture.

  62. ninjabuddy on February 5, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    I live here in AZ and I recently broke up with an ex, with whom I planned to go to the show with. She still has the tickets and she’s still going to go. I would love if you could give her a shoutout or something similar. Her name’s elizabeth, and if you could, tell her that “zach loves her” she’s a huge fan.

    I don’t know if you do anything like that and if not, that’s fine. I just wanted to ask. I never was a big linkin park fan, but after seeing your performance on SNL and after all the initial hype to go to this concert, which would have been my first, I may get the new CD.
    and you’re my favourite part of the band mike. どうも。

  63. ninanashua on February 5, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    I tattooed your name on my arm

    and i have your pick since 2004

    You should know that you are my God…

    SEE IT

  66. betty108 on February 5, 2011 at 9:21 pm

    THAT WAS EPIC! The effects were great! Will the “Linkin Laser Cats” make an appearance on a skit? No? Well, a girl can dream. Can’t wait till the next song.

  67. haw13200 on February 5, 2011 at 9:19 pm

    Not yet, in about 10 min here in Colorado lol. Can’t wait!!

  68. biloxibutterfly on February 5, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    Mike, watching SNL now. Waiting For The End performance was excellent. Lighting was excellent, I love you guys. I’m so excited, you bring something new to the table all the time. Much Love, Rock on!
