Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda Does Reddit AMA (Week in Review): Linkin Park News

On Thursday Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda Does Reddit AMA was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Mike Shinoda has a sense of humor. The Linkin Park star proved that again Wednesday during a Reddit AMA that lasted about an hour. Shinoda answered lots of questions (more than usual celeb AMA partakers do), having to do with a wide variety of subjects: the new album The Hunting Party, video games, beer, and of course, Pokemon.

See some of his quirkier answers below, and read the whole Q&A at Reddit. 1. Shinoda has strong opinions about "The Walking Dead" After a fan asked him what he would do in the event of a zombie apocalypse, he offered some opinions about the hit show. "Why isn't everyone mad that the people from 'The Walking Dead' never just find an island? Is that already a thing?" he said. "The zombie's can't even get over a fence, they definitely can't swim well. So get a f***ing boat and get out on an island already."

2. He knows people like to say his name to the tune of "My Sharona" Yes, he knows. Yes, it is funny. And so when a fan asked him if he was aware that people like to do this, he responded with a simple link to this YouTube video.

3. The collaboration with Jay Z for Collision Course wasn't Linkin Park's idea at all. When a fan asked how the partnership came about, Shinoda responded, "Jay Z and MTV came to us asking 'if we'd jam together.'" Read more - here.
