Linkin Park biography

The US rock brand, Linkin Park was formed in 1996 by a group of college friends in Agoura Hills, California. Those friends comprised of Brad Delson, Mike Shinoda and Rob Bourdon. Within a short period of time; David Farrell and Joe Hahn joined hands with them. Soon after, Mark Wakefield decided to join this group but, he decided to leave by 1999. Later, Chester Bennington became a part of this group.

Initially, this group was known as Hybrid Theory. The urgent style of Bennington blended beautifully with the vocals of Shinoda that was influenced by the hip hop style. Eventually, the name of the band was changed to Linkin Park.

The first album of the band was named Hybrid Theory and it was released in 2000. The RIAA certified it as Diamond in 2005. This one was a major hit and 5 million copies had been sold all around the world. In 2011, the second album Meteora reached on top of Billboards 200 album chart.

Linkin Park came up with another studio album titled Minutes to Midnight and it was a topper on the Billboard charts in 2007. Their experimentation album A Thousand Suns was also a huge hit and they uniquely combined the music with electronic sounds in this album. Other popular albums of this band are Living Things, The Hunting Party and One More Light.

MTV picked Linkin Park as the music video era’s sixth greatest band in 2003. It also found a place in MTV’s three best bands of the millennium. The Billboard selected this brand as the best 20 bands in the decade. It also won two Grammy Awards and sold 70 million records worldwide.

Although the lyrical content was strong, several people criticized them when this band introduced several experimental things into their music. According to the critics, consistency is a missing link in the music of the Linkin Park.
