*shrugs* dunno. i just read.



But you are, in a sense, breaking from the Coldplay handbook on Viva La Vida, which features more guitars, less piano, and a host of eastern instruments.

MARTIN: With Brian, he's not snobby about any kind of music. He'd say, ''Listen to this Donna Summer track and then this Boyz II Men track.'' Then we'd listen to Rammstein, and I played him a Limp Bizkit song. It could be literally like that, so we were able to plagiarize from the most extraordinary places.


Which Limp Bizkit song?

MARTIN: ''Rollin,'' which is my favorite. I love Limp Bizkit. Just watch, in about 10 years people will start saying, ''You know what? They were great.'' Because you can't question their energy and enthusiasm and that's Brian's big thing — he doesn't care what the music sounds like, as long as it has life in it. It might be unfashionable to say it at the moment, but Limp Bizkit had a lot of life in them when they were at their best. I'm proud to say it right here, live and on the record.
