Linkin Park's Chester Bennington Okay With Being Classified As Nu Metal


Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington is alright with being labeled as a nu-metal band, something not many other bands would admit.

"I think for the first time in our history, we're actually OK with being recognized as a nu metal band, especially for what we did early in our careers," frontman Bennington recently told Revolver Magazine. "Because the truth is that when we were first doing it, nobody else really was, especially in terms of integrating the hip-hop thing."

Bennington admits that he didn't think the band was doing anything different at the time and that the nu-metal company he shared was 'awesome.'

"There were guys like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and stuff that Anthrax and bands like that had done. But otherwise there was, like us, and Limp Bizkit. And Limp Bizkit, they were . . . awesome, dude!"
