i remember when they first came out, and they were angry as hell, they were badass, and they didn't hold back...
as it progressed, they just seemed to realize what they needed to do to make hits, and replicate this formula...(as many bands do, unfortunately)
instrumentation: chunky, simplistic guitar...occasional dj scratches...a few ambient sounds...repeat
vocals: whiny, often screamed vocal hooks by chester (betancourt, i think)
repetitive, faux-introspective monotone raps by mike shinota
shinota actually branched off a few years back to make fort minor, and his beats and rhymes with that project are actually pretty killer.
they seem to have found themselves with their new album, though. guess what? produced by rick reuben, and they credit him immensely with their re-invention of sorts.
i guess what it comes down to is that they annoy the hell out of me...
i heard a long time ago that they were put together like a boy band, but i'm not sure if that's true.
