Linkin Park is an American rock band from California. The formed in 1996 as Xero, with band members being Mike, Rob and Brad and later recruiting Joe, Dave and Mark.

Linkin Park released their first album in 2000. Hybrid Theory, a reference to one of the band names rejected by the group, was a huge success, selling approximately 10 million copies in the U.S. alone and including several hit singles like “In the End” and “Crawling.” The band became one of the most successful acts in the rap-rock movement. They have released several albums including Meteora, Collision Course (with Jay-Z) and more recently Living Things which sold over 200,000 copies in the first week.
