Watch Teens React to Old & New Linkin Park

March 20, 2017

If you grew up in the early 2000s, then you probably owned at least one Linkin Park album. Known for hit songs like "Numb," "In The End," and "One Step Closer," Linkin Park's signature sound attracted millions of fans around the world by being spread across multiple genres like alternative rock, alternative metal, nu metal, and rap rock.

Along with frontman Chester Bennington's trademark "scream-o" style of singing, there is a certain kind of sound Linkin Park fans can expect to hear when listening to them. Now with the release of their new, mellower, and pop-sounding single "Heavy," it's got longtime LP fans raising their eyebrows.

The classic YouTube REACT channel recently had teenagers listen to some of Linkin Park's classic songs along with their newer material and showcased the wide range of reactions. Some were disappointed by the change. Some didn't mind it. And some didn't even know who they were!

Check out their reactions below:
