Hard Rock

Linkin Park's music would be classified as Hard Rock. They have a lot of the basic rock instruments. They have electric guitars, drum sets, bass guitars, lead singers, etc. They have a lot of loud, powerful songs that have big messages in them. There is a difference between hard rock and classic rock even though some people don't know it. Both rock genres may have the same instruments but classic rock is more like soft rock then it is hard rock. Hard rock has interesting characteristics like how it is loosely defined and more like heavy rock (or heavy metal). It has aggressive vocals that really tell the audience about the opinions, character traits, and feeling's of the band.
