The alternative rock, nu-metal band’s frontman, 41, vented to Music Week over fan criticism. “We were asked, ‘What do you think of people who say you sold out?’ I don’t care,” Bennington said. “If you like the music, fantastic. If you don’t like it, that’s your opinion too. Fantastic.”

“If you’re saying we’re doing what we’re doing for a commercial or monetary reason, trying to make success out of some formula,” he continued. “Then stab yourself in the face!” he laughed. 

“When we made ‘Hybrid Theory’, I was the oldest guy in the band and in my early ’20s,” the singer explained. “That’s why I guess I’m like: ‘Why are we still talking about ‘Hybrid Theory’? It’s f**king years ago It’s a great record, we love it. Like, move the f**k on.’ You know what I mean?”
