The whole thing about this thread that so annoys me is that the OP is so set in this whole.."this young generation..with their crappy music" thing completely enrages me.

And I would like to convey my annoyance at your generalisation on behalf of everyone over 30.

Re: linkin park-teenagers and music

Back to the OP: When I was a teenager, i listened to far more annoying stuff than LP.

The secret is: They like it because adults don't. End of story. Teenagers want to be different and to take Mum to a concert must be the worst... in short: If you want them to change their mind, you could pretend to like the music - and they will move on to something else, probably worse. You will not be able to make them like what you want them to like - and I honestly think that parents should not try to do that with teenagers. Mine tried, failed miserably and I am still today unhappy that they did not allow me to learn the guitar instead of what they thought is good.

Anyway , do you think it might be too late for teenagers to ever like
classical music ?

I might have been a nerd but i went to classical music concerts
as a teenagers with a friend( also a nerd )

What are the chances i may be able to save their souls ?

Do you think Linkin park is just social pressure , peer pressure and all that
or do you think they make good music ? if so why?

Is there anyone out there who likes classical music but has no one
around who likes to tag along ? If so please let me know
I think that teenagers shouldn't skip any stage in building their character. All the things (like music genres, clothing, styles) are there because it helps building a personal and strong character.

I remember that I was listening to Metallica, Iron Maiden, Sepultura, etc. while my father was always encouraging me to listen to some more "quality" music like jazz-rock or classical. At that time I wasn't giving a sh**t about this type of music but later on I discovered Al Jarreau and everything changed.

I think that is very important to support your kids in discovering on their own what is classical music, to go through all stages and get a well structured music culture. Classic music is not for all ages.

Believe me, we all need to go through many genres as possible in order to get to a point where you can say: I liked rock, I liked techno, I liked drum and bass, but now I finally found "this"!

Re: linkin park-teenagers and music

I remember when Linkin Park came to Montreal...
I had no interest in seeing them but a band I like (Coheed and Cambria) was opening for them. So I dished out the premium because LP was the lead band but only went to see C&C. I left after LP's first song and got a bunch of wierd looks as I was leaving.

Re: linkin park-teenagers and music

King George VI liked Mozart

My parents liked Bing Crosby and Glen Miller

I liked Beatles, Stones, Elvis

My children liked Pink Floyd, Queen

My grandson likes Linkin Park very much & went to the concert Monday.

You have to move on! They may or may not like some classical music, but you won't persuade them, they will just hate you.

Re: linkin park-teenagers and music

Perhaps you need to make the transformation or compromise from Classical Music to Rock.
Nice orchestra, a traditional wedding and funeral in the video.

Zero if you keep banging on like this at them.
Seriously, have you any idea what you sound like?.
Is spot on! I am 19, and listened to Linkin Park when I was younger, I prefer their older stuff, but the newer stuff isnt that good to be honest.

As for classical it totally depends on the person, I was lucky enough to have my mum who listened to it. Saying that teenagers are young and want to listen to 'Pop' music, and by pop i mean popular.

I can appreciate every type of music, be is Ska, Rock, Pop, Punk, Folk, Country, 'Screamo,' but I have to ask you one question....

Would you get up on stage and 'Bang' the guitar and drums in the way they do it? Because that is where the talent is, having the guts to get up on stage and perform in front of 1000's of people.

I take music very seriously, and was quite insulted by the comments you made about Linkin Park to be honest, but I know that everyone is entitled to an opinion about their type of music, but you have to appreciate that right?

Ah, rant over

they can play music and not just bang on the drums or guitar

i would like them to know that classical music is the base
for all music

Actually banging on drums IS the base for all music.
I dont think the early primates had cellos.
