The band has used stylizations; with the following combinations with rap, rock and techno - the band's sound has a great tick to it. The masters of the band are Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda.

The song 'Numb' and the lyrics are attributed to the music video. The lyrics describe what it's like being a troubled teenager. The teenager is shunned and is not liked by teachers or students; the song reflects someone's pain. The artists make the teenager lost in acceptance to others and is emotionally unstable to a point. The song and video is trying to tell everyone that teenagers have problems like this and a lot of people don't listen.

Here's a snippet from the lyrics: "I'm tired of being what you want me to be. Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface. Don't know what you're expecting of me. Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes." The individual is trying to express that they can't be like everyone else; that's not who they are. The artists used the term 'numb' to express what you wanna say, but can't sometimes.
