Linkin Park

Biography: Linkin Park is dedicated to the music they make and the listeners who support them. Blending Nu-Metal and Rap Metal in the first two albums, to focusing on alternative and electronic rock since the 3rd album, Linkin Park has established a sound that is difficult to classify, but easy to identify. The LA-based band combines provoking rhymes and melodic vocals with neck-snapping beats, vicious guitar riffs, and dizzying scratches. Formerly named Hybrid Theory, the band describes their music as "a constantly evolving experiment." "Our goal is to bring seemingly distant elements together," says emcee Mike Shinoda, describing Linkin Park's sound and its fan base. Since its inception in 1996, the band has attracted a diverse and dedicated following. Its grassroots fan base has grown rapidly, fueled by the efforts of hundreds of street teamers across the country, hardcore listeners committed to building Linkin Park. Friends since school, Linkin Park is Rob Bourdon (drums), Brad Delson (guitar), Joe Hahn (turntables), Mike Shinoda (vocals), and Chester Bennington (vocals). The band has released 8 albums since they formed as a band. Hybrid Theory Meteora Reanimation Collision Course (with Jay-Z) Live In Texas Minutes to Midnight
