Why on Earth do Linkin Park always play guitar dropped a half step down?

I find this when looking for their tabs, and its annoying because I have to tune my guitar down a half step to play THEIR songs, then tune up again to play DIFFERENT ones.
Why do they do this?

Wonderful match by TS but in the end simply overwhelmed by the pure skill and simplicity of unfluffed. A true professional in action.

If you have a second guitar, tune that to Eb permanently.

If not, then just live with it.

perhaps the singer sings a semitone lower in THEIR songs than other singers singing DIFFERENT songs/

What's wrong with half a step down, you can play other songs that are in standard half a step down, it just sounds deeper, it's not exactly life threatening.

You, fine sir, have impeccable taste.

Ahhhh Yuck Fou.
Because they want to make you angsty and listen to their music.

In actual news, because they want to? The lower tuning facilitates vocal ranges better? You could always, I dunno... just play their stuff in standard, unless you're playing along to the actual recorded songs.

Question 1
Why did Hendrix and SRV do it?
Question 2
Why the hell do listen to/play linkin park songs.

Don't forget GNR, Van Halen, Metallica, and others.

Also, tuning down a step takes some tension off the strings and makes it easier to fret notes, meaning you can play faster. Not that Linkin Park is known for their ability to shred...
