Will Smith Sings for Linkin Park

An often played song on the radio these days is the Linkin Park song, Bleed It Out. In the past I have been a pretty big Linkin Park fan, and I even went to see them in concert when they came to Salt Lake. That being said, this song doesn't really live up to what I've been used to in the past. It's a pretty repetitive and formulaic song that doesn't have much musical/acoustic variety. I'm just not all that impressed with it.

One possible reason for this though, is that they've apparently enlisted the services of a new front man, Will Smith. If you haven't already, click on the above link to listen to the song and you'll hear what I mean. He's the first voice that you'll hear. I'm not sure how they did it, but I wonder if Will Smith is going to go on tour with the band. That would be something.

Note: As I was writing this my wife wanted to read it, and she actually believed that Will Smith was the new front man for Linkin Park.

You know I thought i was the only crazy one! When I first put in the cd and heard Bleed It Out, I could have sworn it was Will Smith too. I was thinking... Okay, Linkin Park and Will Smith???? Unlikely combo, but okay. I know Jada is into rock, but Linkin Park and Will Smith....mmmm, No! Don't get me wrong, I love L.P. and Will but thats like peanut butter and pickles, I love em both but I wouldn't put em together.
