Introduction

 

Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California.

Since its formation in 1996, the band has sold more than 50 million

albums and won two Grammy Awards. It achieved mainstream success with

its debut album, Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA

in 2005. Its following studio album, Meteora, continued the band's

success, topping the Billboard 200’s album charts in 2003, and was

followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world. In

2003, MTV2 named Linkin Park the sixth greatest band of the music video

era.

 

Having adapted the nu metal and rapcore genres to a radio-friendly yet

densely-layered style in Hybrid Theory and Meteora, the band explored

other genres in their next studio album, Minutes to Midnight. The album

topped the Billboard charts and had the third best debut week of any

album that year. They have also collaborated with several other artists,

most notably with rapper Jay-Z in their mashup album Collision Course,

and many others on Reanimation.

 

Band history

 

Early years (1996–1999)

 

Originally consisting of three high school friends, Linkin Park’s

foundation was anchored by Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, and Rob Bourdon.

After graduating from high school, the California natives began to take

their musical interests more seriously, recruiting Joe Hahn, Dave

"Phoenix" Farrell, and Mark Wakefield to perform in their band, Xero.

Though limited in resources, the band began recording and producing

songs within Shinoda’s make-shift bedroom studio in 1996. Tensions and

frustration within the band grew after they failed to land a record

deal.[1] The lack of success and stalemate in progress prompted

Wakefield, at that time the band's vocalist, to leave the band in search

for other projects. Farrell also left to tour with Tasty Snax and other

bands.

 

After spending a considerable time searching for Wakefield's

replacement, Xero recruited Arizona vocalist Chester Bennington. Jeff

Blue, the vice president of Zomba Music, had referred him to the band in

March 1999. Bennington, formerly of Grey Daze, became a standout among

applicants because of his unique singing style. The band changed its

name from Xero to Hybrid Theory. The newborn vocal chemistry between
