    Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda hurled a comment or insult, whichever you think it is, at Chvrches. The singer called CHVRCHES' music, and that of their peers, homogenous and likened it to "Disney commercial music," which isn't what we'd call it, but...

    "There’s so much stuff that sounds like HAIM or CHVRCHES or Vampire Weekend that I'm full," Shinoda said. "The thing I'm hungry for is not that. I turn on the rock station in L.A. and it sounds like Disney commercial music."

    CHVRCHES have responded, with Iain Cook asking, "What does he have to gain from saying that?," while singer Lauren Mayberry said that his words were "bullshit" and called it a "pointless dig," while saying that Shinoda's is not an opinion that she would spend much time worrying about, nodding to the fact that she didn't like being called a corporate music maker when he wrote music for MTV's VMAs.

    This will probably all blow over, but...

    ..are you Team Mike Shinoda or Team CHVRCHES in this verbal and musically critical melee?
