Linkin Park Accused Of Ratting On Festival-Mates Sublime With Rome

Written by Nastassia Baroni on May 27, 2014

Did Linkin Park just break the sacred festival tour rule? According to Sublime With Rome frontman and guitarist Rome Ramirez, they may just be the festival narcs, after he accused them of calling the cops for his band’s use of marijuana, defying the long-held golden rule: “what goes on tour, stays on tour.”

“Linkin Park called the cops on us and said that they were allergic to pot. Cops came and took all our weed while we on stage,” tweeted Ramirez during last weekend’s KFMA Day festival in Tucson, Arizona where the two bands shared the stage. “Bitch shit,” he added, for emphasis.

Unsatisfied with just that, Ramirez felt it necessary to employ the hashtags, #snitches and #bitchmove and followed up his succinct rant with the delicious phrase, “Linkin Nark”. Neither Linkin Park nor frontman Chester Bennington, who has previously spoken openly about his former struggle with drug and alcohol addiction, have commented on the accusation.

Sublime With Rome are currently working on a new album, following up 2011′s Yours Truly, set for a 2015 release. Linkin Parks’s upcoming album, The Hunting Party, which will feature contributions from members of System Of A Down and Helmet, is due out in Australia on 13th June.

UPDATE 28/05/14 2:42pm: Linkin Park say they’re not narcs, but a police report suggests “Lincoln Park” might be. Details here.
