|East Coast emo behemoths My Chemical Romance and Taking Back Sunday played second-fiddle to Linkin Park. Both had highly predictable stage shows that won the crowd over but had me yawning.|
Seriously, if the crowd is won over it's probably a good show. I hate pretentious prick reviewers that just put scene bands down to maintain an elitist position. After the Saturday of Bamboozle, when like 30,000 people stuck around to see MCR (the largest crowd for one set I've ever seen) there's no way you can call them a snore live. You couldn't even hear Gerard due to the crowd's singing, and from the few songs I watched it was very entertaining. And TBS will always be one of my favorite live bands, tho it's been some time since I've seen them live.
