the new cover for meteora shows a close up of a bunch of spraypaint cans. the inside cover has a picture of a guy wearing a respirator spraypainting something on the ground . id upload the covers but i dont wanna get in trouble for copyrighted content,, especially since the album isnt out yet..

how weird, man. why do pop groups go and exploit something that they probably have never done? it's like that checkers commercial with their logo sprayed on a wall, or corn pops, or old k-mart commercials....dammit! i hate corporate america

i'd guess it has something to do with marketing an image to sell the album. graffiti = rebellion. and their primary market is probably teenage kids who are going through a time period where they want to rebell, so MTV and others exploit rebellion and package it. i guess its the same thing that marilyn manson does..after having gone through 4 of his albums now i see that its really junk. although maybe antichrist superstar was real, but who knows..nothing is real. in a way im angry that our culture has been so packaged and sold, but what can you do? selective consumerism i guess..if one is to think a little bit. how can you sell an act that is illegal? in essence there selling illegality on a cover, does that make fuckin sense?? i guess its the same as the drug thing..whatever im rambling on now

i saw that fatoe was suppose to do sum artwork for the album. i read it on his site www.fatoe.com but i didnt really read into it all that much. as for the album itself... ehh. they'll be at the sanitarium tour so i'll see em there. im not exactly what you would call a fan tho.

that cd cpver is odd...strangely enough i think it would belong on an underground hip hop album rather than linkin park's new commercial deal....they are a bunch of bitches

Linkin Park Beat Bootleggers

 

Band hires security to prevent leak of new album

 

 

With school kids burning CDs to sell to friends before the official release date, the threat to the already beleaguered music business is understandable. So record labels are now taking unprecedented steps to protect their merchandise. Perhaps no disc has been more heavily protected than Linkin Park's Meteora due March 25th. None of the copies have left the custody of the band members, management and executives at Warner Bros. When the album was being mastered, the band had security guards on hand in the studio twenty-four hours a day to prevent any leaks. As tracks were finished, all earlier CD versions were destroyed. Press, radio programmers and retailers can only hear the album by going to the company's offices. The same level of security will likely be in place for new albums by Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Madonna and Staind.

Interscope records recently rushed out rapper 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin' five days ahead of schedule, after the album was leaked early to the Internet and bootleggers. It doesn't seem to have adversely affected the album's sales (1.7 million in its first two weeks). But one Interscope executive says the rushed release still caused problems. "It throws the whole marketing campaign topsy-turvy," he says.

 

Korn frontman Jonathan Davis believes significant sales of the band's last album, Untouchables, were lost to piracy, and he vows to do something about it. "We got so fucked on our last one -- it leaked four months early," he says. "[Next] time there will be no CD going out before release. We're not going to give it to the label until a week before it comes out."

 

Not everyone is so worried. With Kid A, Radiohead loaned journalists digital-music players that were unable to copy the record. But for their next album, due in June, they probably won't take those precautions. The band's publicist believes that past album leaks did nothing to harm sales -- and may have, in fact, helped build the buzz.
