    11.2 They treat them very well!
    11.3 Nope, I’ve never been disappointed, but been progressively more happy with each album, so I’ve only become a bigger fan of the band throughout the years.

  7. No.
  8. I wish to be in front of the stage, in the 1º line.
  9. ¿no?
  10. I’m a member thanks to the trial code to be a LPU in a whole month, but, before, a friend gave me a LPU membership for a month, too. So, it would be like I’ve been a member for 2 months. Haha. I’m really a fan but I never could pay for LPU, maybe some day. 
  11. As musicians, I don’t have any favorite. About personality, I like Chester - He makes me laugh and I love when he makes Shinoda smile or laugh -
    11.2 They’re good with that thing. It seems they’re always able to chat a little, let fans to take photos. They don’t act as superstars, That’s good.
    11.3 No, I’ve never been disappointed. Maybe I just like some albums less than others, but never disappointed.
    11.4 I must say that I have know many friends thanks to Linkin Park. I’m a fan who has grew up with the band, and been a LP fan isn’t like a hobbie for me anymore. It’s like a habit, part of my daily life (I have a forum about LP).
  12. 5-10
    13.20% Maybe.
  13. Neil Young, Steven Wilson (with all his bands), Leusemia, many post rock bands too.
  14. I don’t know. I’m just trying to help with some of the social support LP promote (MFR), and, of course, promoting the band been a LPST member and having a forum dedicated to the band.
  15. Other: When I’m in home (from the computer) or when I’m in the bus going to somewhere (with my MP3 player).
  16. This question is repeated, I think.
    18._Cd’s, Photographs, Posters, Pins, Shirts, Sweaters, Dvd(s), also Patches and shoes designed by Mike Shinoda -
    19.Yes!! Some of them are my friends.
    19.2- It’s cool but not for me but they don’t look at me as I were a freaky xD
  17. No
  18. 22 years old.
  19. Female

  2. When my big sister listened Hybrid Theory in my home when it was released. Because of that I’ll always remember intro of Papercut :D¨
  3. A fan? Almost 2 years now
  4. I can relate to the lyrics, melodies are amazing also the way they mix things surprises me every time. And when you combine these things, it is something awesome that any other hasn’t done. Or that’s my opinion [biggrin]
  5. Once. When I graduated from high school, my dad was so nice that he got me and my sister to a ride to the show :slight_smile:
  6. A Thousand suns world tour 'cause it’s the only one I have been xD But once they come to Finland, I’ll be there! ;D
  7. Unfortunately no
  8. Front of the stage! xD
  9. When fangirling goes to extreme! x)
  10. I’ve been a member since june 2011 after LP played here and I was there. The show was amazing! At first, the reason of joining was the chance to meet the guys but now there is other reason: LPU’ers are so nice and awesome people from everywhere and I can speak about LP with them without boring anyone. LPU is so awesome thing! :smiley:
  11. A favorite member? I don’t know. I think that all of them are very talented, cool guys. Should I’ve a favorite member? :open_mouth:
    11.2 Couldn’t treat better. No complaints!
    11.3 I’ll have to admit that after I got hooked to LP, it was through HT and Meteora. Then I listened ATS and I’ll to admit I was disappointed, but it was 'cause I was like “everybody says it sucks and if you’ll liked HT and Meteora, you don’t like ATS.” But when I heard Rob saying that you have first forget what LP sounds like and then listen the album. I did that and I was blown away! I don’t know if it has affected my fandom in any way besides made it stronger.
    11.4 Very much. I remember when I first time listened Hybrid Theory and really listened it,
    it felt like they sing about me. It was something that I’ll never forget!
    12 _x_0-5 __5-10 __10+
  12. Hmm… How much it could be… 60% maybe
  13. Nightwish is my other all time favorite band! Besides them Within Temptation, Pendulum, Billy Talent, Evanescence. Apocalyptica is also good.
  14. Rocking with them at the show and wearing LP clothes in this very very small town where I live and saying them that it is one of a kind band and you should check it out! :wink:

1.How long have you actively listened to music?
I have been listening to music for about 16 years, big part of my life.

2.Where did you first hear Linkin Park?
I saw their video for One step closer when it first came out and that was it for me, I was hooked

3.How long have you been a fan of Linkin Park?
Since Hybrid Theory

4.Why do you listen to Linkin Park?
Because they are ever evolving which can be rare in the music industry since many artists are afraid to change their methods for fear of losing money and fans. I love that they are not afraid to take chances and make music for them not just to please their fans.

5.How many times have you seen Linkin park live?
8

6.What was your favorite Linkin park show/tour?
Toss up: either my first time seeing them because it was absolutely one of the greatest days ever, or the Chicago summit/concert.

7.Have you been to any exclusive tours, shows or events?
Yes, I went to the Chicago summit and to the Secret show at the Mayan

8.When at a Linkin Park show, where do you like to be in the venue? The bar? General Admission? Seating?
That varies for me, I like general admission beacuse I can get up close, but I also like seats because I won’t lose my spot if I get a meet & greet

9.Is there anything certain fans do that annoy you? Whether its at a show or through other means
SPAM! Especially during chats, sometimes it gets way out of hand.

10.Are you a member of LPU (Linkin park fan club) If so , how long have you been a member and why are you a member?
I am, 5 years now
11. Who is your favorite Linkin park Band member and why?
I love them all, but I would have to say Mike because of his creativity and his attention to fans. He seems to go out of his way to make us know that he appreciates us

11.2 As a Fan, how do you think Linkin park treats it’s fans?
No other band treats their fans the way Linkin Park does. How many other bands do you see putting on summits? Plus, they do not charge fans up to $500 just to meet them, which makes me so angry that artists exploit their fans like that. It makes me love them even more.
You can tell that they do as much s they can to show their love for their fans, no one else compares to their level of devotion

11.3 Were you ever disappointed by one of Linkin Park’s albums? How did it effect you as a fan?
I am more disappointed by some fans and their reaction to their “old” vs. “new” sound. I love their music. Period. Yes they may have changed their sound, but over the past 12 years, have you not changed in some way? Thats how I feel when listening to Hybrid Theory up to A thousand Suns, it’s a huge timespan in between albums, their tastes were bound to change along with their music.

11.4 How do you relate to Linkin Park on a personal level?
Their commitment to helping others

12.On average, how many hours do you listen to music each week? __0-5 __5-10 __10+
Way over 10 hours lol
13.On average, what percentage of that time is used to listen to Linkin Park?
I listen to Linkin Park everyday, how much a day varies, but at least one album a day
14.What other artists do you like?
Long list but: breaking benjamin, garbage, three days grace, 30STM, the used, rise against, seether, incubus and the list goes on

The amount of money we raised for Japan relief efforts
