Linkin Park - how it all began
Linkin Park started out as Xero, a band formed by high school friends Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon and Brad Delson in 1996. However, their story really began with a name change to Linkin Park in 1999 and the recruitment of Arizona-born vocalist, Chester Bennington. Bennington's inimitable vocals turned out to be the perfect foil for Mike Shinoda's rap style, while turntable wizard, Joe Hahn enhanced their overall sound. It proved to be a winning combination and debut album, Hybrid Theory became the best-selling album of 2001.
Linkin Park have been one of the world's best-selling bands for over 15 years with 27.5 million album sales to date. The recipients of numerous awards, the band's highlights include 2003's Meteora
which sold over 80,000 copies in its first week. The album topped the charts in the US and the UK and reached No.2 in Australia. Stand out tracks include the singles "Numb", "Breaking the Habit" and "Faint" and the album had sold over three million copies by October of 2004. Linkin Park released their third studio album, the massively successful Minutes to Midnight
in May 2007. It rocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard charts with sales of over 625,000 copies during its first week. Singles include the critically acclaimed "What I've Done" and "Bleed it Out". "What I've Done" also featured in the soundtrack for hit action movie Transformers
