Linkin Park singer Mike Shinoda spoke in an interview with Alt 92.3 and explained his thoughts about the claims that ‘Linkin Park is the illuminati’.

Here’s the statement:

“I heard so many things. Well, the Illuminati thing was the thing for one moment. There was one moment when somebody said that, and I was like, first i had to look it up.

When I was like in junior high, and maybe early high-school – when we talked about Illuminati, ‘Oh yeah, secret societies that run the planet.’ And we forgot about that, but somebody brought it up again.

Somebody was like, ‘Linkin Park is the Illuminati.’ And then I looked it up: ‘Is Illuminati the same thing it was back then?’. And the answer is, ‘Yes, it is.’

I was like, ‘Dude, if I was Illuminati, I would be balling right now. Why would I be a musician running around doing shows?'”

Interviewer asked:

“What would you do if you were Illuminati?”

Mike responded:

“Um, Facebook? I would like, own Facebook or something way bigger than Linkin Park. I would be Jeff Bezos, I would own Virgin or something. Why would I be in Linkin Park? That would be a stupid thing.”
