Hinder just released their new album, Take it to the Limit. Produced by Brian Howes (Puddle of Mudd, Chris Cornell), the eleven song collection is packed with the kind of arena-ready guitar anthems that have the band constantly compared to bands like Def Leppard and Mötley Crüe. The band recently released “Without You” as a single and the power-ballad picks up where their 2006 breakthrough hit “Lips of an Angel” left off. The band’s debut album Extreme Behavior has gone on to sell over 3 million copies so anticipation is high for this one.

Released November 24th on Warner Bros. Records / Machine Shop Recordings
“Simply awesome… Every single aspect is nothing less than razor sharp, holding the entire crowd until the re-emergence of Jay-Z for a romp through tracks from the duo’s Collision Course album nearly two hours later. A genuine show-stopping performance” – Kerrang! review of the Milton Keynes show.
Multi-platinum two-time Grammy-winning rock band LINKIN PARK has announced a November 24th release date for ROAD TO REVOLUTION (Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros. Records), an action-packed CD/DVD set featuring seventeen of the group’s biggest hits recorded live in concert.
The double-disc set captures the band’s June 29th 2008 show at the Milton Keynes National Bowl during the sold-out European leg of this past summer’s Projekt Revolution tour. Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution has become one of the summer concert season’s annual heavyweights and the Milton Keynes gig — played to a packed crowd of almost 50,000 people — was the biggest in the tour’s six-year history.
“Over the course of the past few years, we’ve played more than two hundred Projekt Rev shows to hundreds of thousands of fans, and while each of those gigs has been special, the Milton Keynes show has been one of the most memorable,” says Linkin Park co-lead vocalist Chester Bennington. “It was one of those nights where the band and audience come together as one, and we wanted to share that experience with the fans that couldn’t be there.”
ROAD TO REVOLUTION features hidden bonus tracks and includes exclusive, never-before-seen live photos. The CD/DVD set highlights a mix of new hits, including latest single “Leave Out All The Rest,” classic tracks such as “Breaking The Habit” and “Crawling” and two special performances—““Jigga What/Faint” and “Numb/Encore”—featuring Grammy winning rapper Jay-Z. In 2005, “Numb/Encore” was awarded a Grammy for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.”
Check out the live clip for “Leave Out the Rest” here.
The full track listing for ROAD TO REVOLUTION is as follows:
“One Step Closer”
“From The Inside”
”No More Sorrow”
”Lying From You”
”Hands Held High”
”Leave Out All the Rest”
”The Little Things Give You Away”
”Breaking the Habit”
”Shadow of the Day”
”In the End”
”Pushing Me Away”
”What I’ve Done”
“Numb/Encore” (featuring Jay-Z)
“Jigga What/Faint” (featuring Jay-Z)
Linkin Park spent the summer touring with Projekt Revolution in support of their latest album MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT and the seventh best-selling album of the year. In addition to “Leave Out All The Rest,” MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT spawned four other top ten hits (“Bleed It Out,” “What I’ve Done,” “Shadow of the Day,” “Given Up”) and earned Linkin Park the title of 2007’s best-selling rock band, with worldwide sales of more than 6 million.
“We the people of the United States’. These are the first 7 words of the Constitution of the United States of America. As I stood in the reception area of the Pentagon in Washington D.C. early this year, a large recreation of that Constitution was posted on the wall. It’s the first thing you see as you enter the building. “We the People of the United States”, I stared at it and said: “I’d die for that idea”!
I’ve written in the past, I love my country, but I’m scared to death of its government. That idea for me has taken a new twist in this coming election.
I’d first like to point out that I am not a John McCain supporter. I have been critical of the U. S. Government for years, and I, like most of my fellow Americans am angry and frustrated with the lying, manipulation and partisanship of the elected officials, both local and national, Democrat and Republican, of this country.
The Founding Fathers of this Country wrote this Constitution, with all it’s Amendments, as THE Cornerstone that this country would be governed by. We Americans now find ourselves on the eve of, without a doubt, THE most important election of our lifetime. In a time of World uncertainty, the volatility of the global financial Markets, the Middle East at war, Russia invading Georgia, Iran and North Korea attempting to develop nuclear weapons and with that Iran threatening to “Wipe Israel Off the Map”, the entire world is at a dangerous point in history.
I grew up and lived with the ideals and philosophy of the “Counter Culture” Generation. “Peace and Love”, ” Flower Power”, “Stop the War”, Never Trust anybody Over 30″. “Stop the War” was absolutely correct! Vietnam was a disaster and more than 50,000 U. S. Soldiers died for that mistake. But the rest was a load of naïve, idealist, “we can change the world”, CRAP!
Not that some of those sentiments weren’t a good idea. It’s just that this generation of self-serving, selfish, spoiled brats has now come of age. They are the ones that now have perpetuated the greed and the lies of the Wall Street Bailout and a laundry list of other political atrocities too numerous to mention. The weakness of true conviction to teach their children about the values and history of this Nation. Their children know nothing of Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Washington, Lincoln or the understanding that this Great Nation was built on the Dreams, the Tears, the back breaking Labor, the unending sacrifice and the Blood spilled by the generations before them that sacrificed their all, including the men and women that gave their lives, and the ones that will give their lives in defense of this “Great Experiment”, this Great American Dream. If you don’t think so, go up to most any of their kids on the street and ask them about the Founding Fathers. More than likely they’ll think its some new rap group. It’s not just a glimpse into poor enlightenment. It’s an indictment on their parents.
The generation that was going to change the world certainly did. Their gluttony for botox, living on credit cards, busy being fabulous and its all about me, me, me cause I’m better than you. “All You Need is Love”…. I’m sorry pal, you missed the boat, all you really need is some guts and character. I’m disgusted and ashamed to be part of it. Instead, that generation with their ‘Woodstock / Marxist” Scream – Dream are the ones which now control the majority of the mainstream media in this country. That includes almost all Television and almost all Newspapers. They are the ones that now bring the extreme liberal, radical 60’s utopian vision of their world to the American people. The extreme liberal bias of the mainstream American Media which are now controlled by these “Yuppies” have conspired to deceive, manipulate, suppress the truth, promote their candidate at all costs and bury any story that does not put a halo around the head of that candidate. It is with this that the American People are brought Barak Obama.
This man is a product of that Extreme Leftist – Marxist movement that has been building in this country for over 40 years. He is a product of the Harvard far left. He is the face and mouthpiece of a movement that is Hell Bent on breaking up the U. S. Constitution and reassembling it to conform to their vision. He is a lawyer, the Democratic Johnny Cochran, in which every time he speaks gives a closing argument. He is the embodiment of the New Democratic Machine.
When I was a kid everyone I knew were Democrats, but these are not your fathers Democrats anymore. They are part of some liberal elite that looks down on the ideals that made this Country great. This Leftist Machine has hidden the truth from the American People (and the World) and continues to deceive at any cost.
Right now, as I write, the L. A. Times Newspaper has a videotape, which it refuses to release to the American Public, which shows Obama at a farewell dinner celebration for the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) Spokesman Rashid Khalidi. He was also a spokesman for Yassir Arafat. In this tape are the recorded verbal attacks on Israel and the Israeli People and reference to Israel as a terrorist state.
Reportedly, the Domestic terrorist Bill Ayres, who as part of the “Weather Underground” terrorist organization bombed several U. S. targets including the Pentagon and the home of a U. S. Judge and killing 2 policemen in the process, was also at this dinner. Obama has been close friends with Khalidi and Ayers for many years. The oath of President requires that the President will “protect the United States against all enemies, both Foreign AND Domestic”.
Guess he didn’t read that part!
Now, what should be of utmost concern to the American People are the repeated denials by Obama, that he has no ties to any of these people. If he has nothing to hide why not be truthful with the American Public and request the L. A. Times to release this videotape for us all to see. If it turns out to be nothing then at least the truth will be served.
From Obama’s 20 year association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright who has repeatedly said: “It’s not God Bless America, No, No, No, It’s God Damn America!
Obama sat in Wrights church and listened to this Treason for 20 years. Wright also performed Obama’s marriage and Baptized both of his children. Obama was an organizer for Acorn, the group now accused of massive voter registration fraud. Some working for Acorn have already been jailed for this. Obama was also Acorns lawyer for a time. Obama recently donated over $800,000 to Acorn. He accuses Americans for “clinging to their guns and religion”. Never in the history of the United States has any Presidential candidate had a shroud of controversy surround them as has Obama. If someone would have told me 2 years ago that anybody with these associations could get nominated for their party, or even dog catcher, much less President of the United States, I would have said your insane.
My reasons for starting this letter with the first line of the Constitution is to reference a radio interview Obama did in which he says the U. S. Supreme Court did not go far enough in attempting to provide reparations to African- Americans and that the Earl Warren edition of the Supreme Court was not liberal enough. That Court was probably the most liberal in U.S. history.
It is not the job of the Supreme Court to be liberal or conservative. It is to interpret the Constitution… period. It is not to legislate from the bench based on the “general consensus of the people” as stated in a recent Supreme Court ruling, but rather to make its rulings based on the precise wording of the Constitution. If at some point “the people” wish to have any new amendment to the Constitution based on their modern day ideals, then all 50 states must ratify it….period.
This is the Obama quote from that interview with radio station WBEZ. FM in Chicago. This is not taken out of context.
It is the entire quote:
“The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth, and of more basic issues such as political and economic justice in society. To that extent, as radical as I think people try to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn’t that radical. It didn’t break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, at least as its been interpreted and Warren Court interpreted in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf, and that hasn’t shifted and one of the, I think, tragedies of the civil rights movement was, um, because the civil rights movement became so court focused I think there was a tendancy to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalition of powers through which you bring about redistributive change. In some ways we still suffer from that”.
These are things he would NEVER say in front of a national audience. He only says and does these things when he thinks his base group is listening. In this interview he is making it clear that if elected, he would nominate Supreme Court Justices that will put forth his agenda’s, “redistribution of wealth”, his idea of “economic justice” and “redistributive change” which are other words for reparations for slavery and a Marxist redistribution of wealth which is no more than welfare.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in The Declaration of Independence about ‘Life, Liberty and the PURSUIT of Happiness. This PURSUIT is not a guarantee of wealth or any form of happiness, but the chance to raise one-self up. This government never has, nor ever will, nor ever should provide for anything more than this. It is ironic that Obama’s supporters so often refer to him as a new John F. Kennedy.
Senator Obama should be reminded that it was JFK in his inaugural address that said “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for you country”.
That is the TRUE American Spirit!
On the issue of taxes, in effort to “spread the wealth around” he first defined the rich as making $300,000 then he said it was $250,000 then he said $200,000, then a few days ago Joe Biden said it would be $150,000. So, what’s the real number? This is more about him not being truthful with the public.
Will all of his tax schemes of taxing anyone who makes over $250,000 (or whatever it is) a year destroy our economy, yeah, just like Jimmy Carter did in the 70’s and Herbert Hoover before him. It’s not the individual that makes that much money that’s the issue. If this were only about individuals then that could be argued. But what he doesn’t tell you is what it does to businesses. Most any business that creates that much revenue MUST employ a number of people. If the business is taxed upwards of 30% or more then those jobs are gone…its that simple.
There have been a lot of charges about racism in this election from the Obama side. I personally have never been a racist. Any of you that know me, know I’ve said many times that after my Father, Muhammad Ali has been the biggest influence in my life. But there definitely is racism in this election. 96 to 97% of African-Americans polled in this election say they will vote for Obama. Never in the history of this country has ANY candidate ever had such overwhelming numbers from any group. White, Black, Hispanic, Asian or other. The traveling Political, Racist, Circus called Acorn, which Obama worked with for years, is creating and sponsoring voter fraud across the country by registering illegal immigrants, the Dallas Cowboys and Mickey Mouse. This is no joke. Acorn has actually done this and much, much more. Their belief is win …. at any cost….
the Constitution be Dammed! If that’s not prejudice, I don’t know what is.
The books Obama has written about himself are very clear as to his true ambitions concerning his Leftist, Marxist views but the average person will not take the time to read them, In the 1920’s while in prison, a young Adolf Hitler wrote “Mein Kampf” (My Struggle) which outlined his entire plan for World Domination and the extermination of the Jewish race. No one would read it, and then when they did it was too late…. any book that was not approved by the Nazi Party was burned. The “Communist Manifesto” by Karl Marx at one time, was required reading in our schools. This book is Obama’s “How To” guide with his ideal of the “Redistribution of Wealth”. If you don’t think so, go back and look at the above radio interview. Somewhere Karl Marx with his Godless, Utopian vision is laughing in delight.
If it is true that “What is Past, is Prologue” then we need look no further than Obama’s books. His blueprint is there in black and white. Literally and figuratively.
I will vote for McCain, not because I believe in all he stands for, but as a mandate against Obama, to keep him from becoming President. Yes, I will cling to my guns and my religion, and continue to believe in the Constitution, the Cornerstone of our society and trust that this is STILL a “Government of the People, By the People, For the People”.
The point of all this is, that no matter whatever any of us encounter in life, look for the truth. The truth can and will stand up to anything. If that truth cannot stand up to scrutiny then you must see it and call it for what it truly is. If any would be Messiah comes along and he looks like it, acts like it and smells like it then you call him what he truly is… a Marxist, in Socialist clothing!
I challenge all Americans to go back and READ the Constitution of the United States, READ the Declaration of Independence.
Decide for Yourself
God Help Us.
… God Bless America
I encourage anyone who understands this letter and is moved to action, to send this letter in an email to everyone you know, to all who will listen!

Former Soundgarden front man, Chris Cornell has just unveiled the official video for “Ground Zero.” The clip includes scenes from the ABC crime-drama Life On Mars. The series also prominently featured the song in their October premiere episode. The song comes off Cornell’s upcoming Timbaland produced effort, Scream. The album will be hitting stores in early 2009.
Cornell has also been blogging on his official site as of late. So far, the entries have dealt with everything from a dream he had about Layne Staley to his touring preparation and set list choices. Check out all of the blog posts at www.chriscornell.com/blog/ to get a rare glimpse into the mind of the rock icon.
HRH Comment: This is a completely different sound for Cornell. I was expecting something more in the hard rock vein. I am not sure this even falls in the rock category. I am still not quite sure what to think about this.
Check it out below, and see what you think!
Sleaze Rock has seen one of hell of a resurgence over the past few years. While the majority of the bands have came out of Sweden, Johnny Burning is here to show the world that Italians can do it just as good if not better than the Swedes and judging from their album “Get Up, Get Loose, Get Off!” this five piece band from Imola, Italy are definitely on the right track.
There are about three song titles that kind of leave me scratching my head wondering what they are talking about. The first such song is the lead off track “Wrong Shape” but the guys can be forgiven because the song absolutely rocks with a great groove, catchy lyrics, a great sing a long chorus, and a smoking solo. Lead singer Manuel (no last name needed) sounds like a cross between the legendary Jesse Hart (Southgang) and Mimmo (Krystal), the guy can really sing and probably the biggest thing for me, I can understand what he is singing which unfortunately has kept me from being able to get into a couple of other Italian bands in the past. I’m not sure who is supposed to get credit for the solo since the band has two guitarists D.B. & Niko (once again no last names needed), but neither are distinguished as the lead or rhythm.
“Devil Inside” pretty much follows the same suit as “Wrong Shape” and it is just as rocking too. These guys definitely know how to write catchy songs with great hooks that will keep a part of your body tapping be it your head, feet, or hands you won’t be able to help yourself.
The third track is another one of those scratching my head title and it definitely gets my vote for the most interesting song title of year “Sassy Lassie Goose” is another great song that follows the same recipe as the albums first two tracks and pretty the rest of the album follows as well.
I have no idea what “Idiota” means but Johnny Burning changes things up just enough with this track to keep things interesting with it’s an a capella opening and throwing some harmonica in there as well.
“Shine” is the ballad/mid tempo song on the album and unfortunately it was written about 20 years to late because back in the 80’s this song would have been a monster hit. It could have easily stood toe to toe with any song released by Bon Jovi, Poison, Great White, or any other band we could sit here and name and it could just as easily stand toe to toe with any of the power ballads that have been released over the past couple of years, maybe a disc jockey somewhere will give this song the chance it deserves and give it some air play.
For “Rock in the U.S.A.” the guys drop the sleaze and give a more melodic approach but the results are just as great as any other song on this album.
I can’t forget the rhythm section of Cesko on bass and Rob on drums because they definitely keep everybody in line on this album.
If you like your rock sleazy with a touch of blues, big choruses, and smokin’ solos Johnny Burning maybe exactly what you are looking for.
