Its not that they changed their music because they went mainstream. They were mainstream as soon as Hybrid Theory was released.
The reason their sound changed in Minutes to Midnight was because they wanted to try something new, but still put up hits that they will like 10 years from now. Its not because they went mainstream, they are way past that now.
And I'm not just bulls***in my way about that. I am a member of the Linkin Park Underground. They had an episode on there where the band talked about how they changed their sound and why. Good idea to do so too, yes it may disappoint some fans, but in the end (no pun intended), Minutes to Midnight became the #1 album in the US the day it came out.
If Linkin Park were to change the sound of every album they produce from now on, I would still be a fan, even if it became country
