Linkin Park was formed in 1996 in Agoura Hills, California. They rose to international game after releasing their debut album in 2000, titled Hybrid Theory, which became certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America. Their second album, titled Meteora and released in 2003, continued the bands success, topping the Billboard 200. The album was followed by extensive touring and charity work. Meteora and Hybrid Theory shared a nu metal and rap metal sound, and that is the sound that Linkin Park became known for. However, when 2007 rolled around, the band released Minutes to Midnight, which also topped the Billboard 200. Minutes to Midnight explored new sounds for the band, from the swearing metal sound of Given Up, to the calmness of Leave Out All The Rest.

Linkin Park is one of the best selling bands of the 21st century and the world's best selling music artists, having sold over 70 million albums worldwide. They have won two Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards and three World Music Awards. In 2003, MTV2 names Linkin Park the sixth greatest band of the music video era and the third best of the new millennium. Billboard ranked Linkin Park No. 19 on the Best Artists of the Decade list. In 2012, Linkin Park was voted as the greatest artist of the 2000s on a Bracket Madness poll on VH1. In 2014 the band was declared as "The Biggest Rock Band in the World Right Now" by Kerrang!.
Oh, man. I love Linkin Park!

Ok since everyone is just posting OPINIONS. Let’s actually get a real from most OPINIONS

Linkin Park is a Sol-Cal band that is often thought of as nu-metal, alt. rock, or something else where-as the band themselves thinks to have their own style of music and has two successful albums, "Hybrid Theory" and Meteora, and two remix albums that not only went high in the charts when they were released(believe it or not), most people seem not to like "Reanimation" nor "Jay-Z Linkin Park: Collision Course" except people who enjoy hip hop more(they seem to like them a little more than Linkin Park's albums).

The band consists of six members:
Chester Bennington (vocals)
Rob Bourdon (drums)
Brad Delson (guitar)
Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass guitar)
Joseph Hahn "Mr. Hahn" (turntablist, samples)
Mike Shinoda (backing vocals, sampling, rap emcee, keyboardist, occasional rhythm guitarist)

Before there was Linkin Park there was the band called Hybrid Theory. This was Linkin Park before they were signed onto Warner Bros.
And Before Hybrid Theory there was Xero which was more focused on hip-hop music.

Most people look to their lyrics as "shitty" and "have no thought in them at all, only made to get emo teens to listen to them" When this is not true at all.
Their lyrics are taken from 'sappy therapy time' as Mike says, and broken down until they reach a happy medium. On average their lyrics are rewritten at least twice for every song.
Where the Lyrics branch from is stuff they have gone through (not from relationship problems most of the time) and as Mike once said "You don't want to know where the lyrics come from...You wouldn’t know how the hell we got it to become that song."

This band has become loved by many and hated by many as well. They are seen as 'untalented' when this is truly wrong. Linkin Park has a sound that, as of now, has not been duplicated (and many have tried). This band is greatly respected in the music business and seems to be one of the most successful bands to mix hip hop and rock.
"Hey dude did you read that definition of Linkin Park on"
"Yeah seems like the guy was posting a biography! At least all that were there was facts and no opinions."

A band who everyone seems to have forgotten that they have made more than 2 albums. People tend to complain about how they scream to much, when if you actually bothered to listen to the 3rd and 4th studio albums you would realize they don't actually scream that much anymore.
Person One: "Linkin Park like scream sooooo much!!!"

Person Two: "Go buy Minutes to Midnight and A Thousands Suns you knob."

The only band to SUCCESSFULLY combine rock, rap and electronica. They have their own sound, and they're deep lyrics and catchy hooks have helped them become the great artists they are today.
'Linkin Park is a great alternative metal band.'

One of the Best Bands of the last years , 2000-present

Their music works good for people who has been rejected or who feels bad , their songs help people to get through hard moments , and they are just Awesome.
If you think they're bad , then you don't know how it feels to be mistreated , or you're just part of the problem
I been Rejected my whole life , and people always makes fun of me, and Linkin Park songs describe just how i feel right Now, and they helped me realize that people are Stupid.
