70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Linkin Park Donate $65k To Hurricane Charley Relief

This next post is a little off-topic as Linkin Park are neither underground nor metal, however I think it's a very respectful thing that they're doing, so I felt the need to show people not all bands are greedy and only care about the money:

Sympathetic to the plight of Florida residents devastated by the ravages of Hurricane Charley, multi-platinum rockers LINKIN PARK have announced that they will donate $5.00 from every ticket sold for tonight's Projekt Revolution concert at the Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa to the Red Cross Hurricane Charley Relief Fund. The donation will be retroactive and will include all tickets sold for Wednesday's performance (the first show at the Ford Amphitheatre since Hurricane Charley), which will amount to a gift in excess of $65,000.00.

LINKIN PARK wants to do what they can to help those unfortunate people who have had their lives turned upside down by this terrible storm. This is a way for local Projekt Revolution fans to help their neighbors via a reliable relief effort.

Hope the 65k helps. I may just go and buy two of their CDs, lube up the strap-on and go to one of their concerts

i just meant for debut, they suck live and aren't coordinated onstage at all.
there's a difference inhaving music out and then sucking and putting out plain
god awful music from the start. it was good for their genre but i wish that genre
would just go away.
