Linkin Park, the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning rock band, is a true icon of the modern music scene. Their unique blend of heavy guitar riffs, electronic beats, and emotional lyrics has captured the hearts of millions of fans around the world, making them one of the most successful and influential groups of their generation. Since their debut in 2000, Linkin Park has sold over 100 million records, and their impact on popular culture can still be felt today. From the raw energy of “One Step Closer” to the introspective beauty of “Numb,” Linkin Park’s music continues to inspire and captivate audiences everywhere.
Linkin Park’s second studio album, “Meteora,” was released in 2003 and remains one of the most iconic and influential albums in the nu-metal genre. With its heavy guitar riffs, pounding drums, and insightful lyrics, “Meteora” showcases the band’s musical prowess and emotional depth. The album was a commercial success, reaching number one on the Billboard 200 chart and being certified double platinum in the United States.
Songs like “Somewhere I Belong” and “Breaking the Habit” quickly became fan favorites, while tracks like “Numb” and “Faint” solidified the band’s reputation as a musical force to be reckoned with. The album’s themes of personal struggles, self-discovery, and emotional turmoil resonated deeply with listeners, and its blend of rock, rap, and electronic elements made it unlike anything else on the charts at the time.
To celebrate the success of ‘Meteora’, Linkin Park is releasing the 20th Anniversary Edition of the album which is set to release on April 7.
According to JustJared, the new ‘Meteora’ album features a leftover song from the original. The song features Chester Bennington and was originally released six years after his tragic death.
The remaining members of the band will pay tribute to the album’s 20th anniversary with a re-release featuring previously unheard material later this year. Band member Mike Shinoda said in a statement to Billboard:
‘Finding this track was like finding a favorite photo you had forgotten you’d taken, like it was waiting for the right moment to reveal itself. For years, fans have been asking us to release something with Chester’s voice, and I’m thrilled we’ve been able to make that happen in such a special way.”
