Linkin Park Wants Your Help Celebrating 20 Years Of Hybrid Theory!


It’s hard to say what a band like Linkin Park should do, or will do, after losing co-lead vocalist Chester Bennington a couple of years. And while there’s no right (or wrong) answer to that question, there is something that we can all agree on. That the band’s inaugural effort, Hybrid Theory, should be celebrated this year, its 20th anniversary. 

And that’s exactly what they’re planning to do. 

Some other big nü-metal (God, I still hate that term!) albums turn twenty this year, including Marilyn Manson’s ‘Holy Wood’, Deftones’ ‘White Pony’, and Limp Bizkit’s ‘Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavoured Water’. But you could argue that none of those bands used their 2000 effort as a launch pad quite like LP did. 

And, they want your help celebrating the 20th anniversary.

“This year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Hybrid Theory. We have some very special things planned throughout the year and want you to be a part of it.

“We’re looking for photos, videos, ticket stubs, merch, flyers, souvenirs and anything else you collected from the early days of the band in the late 90s through to the Hybrid Theory era of 2000 - 2002.

“Some great examples include – but are not limited to – live concert footage and photos, pictures of band members and signed goodies from LPU meet and greets.”

 If you’ve got something that fits that criteria, you can submit it HERE.

We’ll also be getting a full release from Bennington’s first band, Grey Daze, next month.

Sure, there’s no right/wrong way to carry on after losing one of your frontmen, especially to suicide. But so far, everyone that was closest to Chester seems to be doing a really great job of honouring the memory of one of the most iconic rock singers of the last two decades.
