I've never been a big fan of Linkin Park, seeing them as Nine Inch Nails wannabes. But the hip hop-influenced sextet mostly impressed with a performance of 'Burn It Down,' the first single from their latest album Living Things. Mike Shinoda's rap verse seemed a little incongruous against singer Chester Bennington's impassioned vocals, but, hey, that's what they do.
