i always thought linkin park's amateurish songrwiting was a dead giveaway that chester was not actually depressed and just sang that poo poo to tap into a market.

never liked the band at all but now i feel bad for wrongly talking so much trash about how fake their angst was. depression sucks and suicide is not the way anyone should go ever.
I feel the same way. I absolutely loathe Linkin Park and this came completely out of nowhere for me. Most people's reactions that I've seen are similar to how I felt when Chris Cornell died, so I'm avoiding making an rear end of myself about it.

What exactly is "post-grunge"? I saw a few posts touching on this a couple pages ago, but I'm still not sure. Is it just the literal "after grunge" thing that was going on in the alt rock scene in the mid 90s? I'm familiar with the terms "post-punk" and "post-rock" which are kind of misnomers so cue confusion.

Stuff like Bush, Creed, Nickelback etc. that took the sound of grunge bands (mostly Pearl Jam) and watered it down.

Basically any band that appears on the CD compilations “Buzz Cuts” and “Buzz Ballads” or the soundtrack to the first Spider-Man movie.

I've been re-listening to System of a Down's discography and forgot how awesome they were/are and am wondering if there's anything else along those same lines? I know of some of the weirder aspects of metal (stuff like uneXpect, Igorrr, etc)

What else should I check out

Pretty much anything Mike Patton has been involved with, particularly Mr. Bungle and FNM.

Maybe Dog Fashion Disco and Polkadot Cadaver.
