Linkin Park is an American rock band from Agoura Hills, California. Since their formation in 1996, the band has sold more than 50 million albums[2] and won two Grammy Awards.[3][4] They achieved mainstream success with their debut album, Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005.[5] Their following studio album, Meteora, continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200’s album charts in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world.[6]

Having adapted the nu metal and rap rock genres to a radio-friendly yet densely-layered style in Hybrid Theory and Meteora,[7][8][9] the band explored other genres in their next studio album, Minutes to Midnight.[10][11] The album topped the Billboard charts and had the third best debut week of any album that year.[12][13] They have also collaborated with several other artists, most notably with rapper Jay-Z in their mash-up album Collision Course, and many others on Reanimation.[8]
Style
Both Hybrid Theory and Meteora combined the nu metal[55][56][57][58][59] and rap rock[60][59] sound with influences and elements from hip-hop, alternative rock,[citation needed] and electronica, utilizing programming and synthesizers. William Ruhlmann from Allmusic regarded it as "a Johnny-come-lately to an already overdone musical style,"[61] whereas Rolling Stone called "Breaking the Habit" "risky, beautiful art".[62]

In Minutes to Midnight the band experimented with their established sound and drew influences from a wider and more varied range of genres and styles, a process Los Angeles Times compares to a stage in U2's work.[63] In it, only two of the songs feature rapping, and the majority of the album can be considered alternative rock,[64][65] rather than nu metal or rap rock. It also is their first studio album to feature guitar solos.

Linkin Park's use of two separate vocalists has become a large part of their music. Chester Bennington is most known for using screaming vocals common in various forms of metal, while also using more melodic singing, and has placed 46th in Hit Paraders list of "Heavy Metal's All-Time Top 100 Vocalists".[66]

Mike Shinoda is the group's MC, and does all of the rapping. Mike has also done all of the backing vocals live, and in their latest album, Minutes to Midnight, he sings lead vocals on "In Between", "Hands Held High" and the B-side "No Roads Left". Shinoda has also been placed in Hit Parader's list of "Heavy Metal's All-Time Top 100 Vocalists" at number 72.[66]
