ahh.. that's kind of what I figured. I heard that about Linkin Park back in the Hybrid Theory days.
I don't think that's the back story with this band, but they'd be the second band from around here that people claim that about.
Linkin Park definitely didn't do that. Their original music was too rough to sound like it had been formed by a label.
I'm talking along the lines of shit like Big Time Rush and One Direction.
