Neal Weiss of Launch.com chatted with Hoobastank guitarist Estrin, frontman Douglas Robb, and bassist Markku Lappalainen on a variety of subjects including how they describe their sound. “I don’t think we’re doing something that hasn’t been done before. But I think it’s not very trendy,” admits Robb. “I think it’s just rock music with good songs and lyrics, lyrics that people can relate to, grab onto; it’s just stuff that I’ve been through just being a normal guy. I think a lot of people can relate to it, like songs like that never go out of style. Good songs are timeless.” Markku added, “I’d say it’s in between, like, Britney Spears and Metallica. Somewhere in between those categories. I think it’s just rock. Positive rock–nothing angry about our music.”
