Linkin Park – Celebrating 20 Years of Meteora | Hard-Working Legends of Rock

Linkin Park, the forever legendary multi-platinum-selling rock band, proudly became the hardest-working men in hard rock history! The multi-genre band swiftly achieved incredible success with their debut album ‘Hybrid Theory’, which has been widely recognized as the best-selling debut of the new millennium. Going platinum twelve times in a row! Reaching beyond diamond status!

Linkin Park has conquered unparalleled success with their heart-gripping music and jaw-dropping performances, selling over 100 million albums worldwide and earning two Grammy Awards since their formation in 1996. The band’s hard work and dedication to creating timeless music have made them an iconic name in the music industry for life! With a string of hit singles, including ‘Crawling’, ‘New Divide’, ‘Numb’, and hundreds upon hundreds of impressive sold-out live performances, Linkin Park has permanently cemented itself as one of the most influential bands of our time.

Linkin Park is now celebrating the 20th anniversary of their second album ‘Meteora’ with a previously unreleased track called “LOST.” Recorded sometime during the 2002/2003 ‘Meteora’ sessions, the “LOST” single will feature lead vocals from the late and beloved Chester Bennington.

Right now, when it comes to making an album, we really want to give our fans just Linkin Park. We don’t want to water it down with anything else or confuse it with anything else. Meteora is just us and that’s where our focus has been. So hopefully the fans can enjoy that.”-Mike Shinoda 2003

From Rolling Stone Magazine In 2003 Describing Meteora:

“Linkin Park sound most alive when escaping the constraints of their genre. On “Breaking the Habit,” guitarist Brad Delson sticks the metal riffs in temporary storage. As Bennington croons, the band swirls twice as fast around him while strings swell and drums bolt. Although the song’s anguished grandeur is rooted in the band’s New Wave influences, the result bears little resemblance to the past or present. This suits Linkin Park’s futurist vibe and lives up to the promise of Meteora‘s lavish packaging. Much of the album is just excellent craft; on “Breaking the Habit,” Linkin Park make some risky, beautiful art.”
