Team's story 

Early years (1996–1999)

Originally consisting of three high school friends, Linkin Park’s foundation was
anchored by Mike Shinoda and Brad Delson along with Rob Bourdon. After graduating
from high school, the California natives began to take their musical interests more
seriously, recruiting Joe Hahn, Dave "Phoenix" Farrell, and Mark Wakefield to
perform in their band then titled Xero. Though limited in resources, the band began
recording and producing songs within Shinoda’s make-shift bedroom studio in 1996.]
Tensions and frustration within the band grew after they failed to land a record
deal. The lack of success and stalemate in progress prompted Wakefield, at that time
the band's vocalist, to leave the band in search for other projects Farrell would
also leave the band to tour with Tasty Snax and other bands.

After spending a considerable time searching for Wakefield's replacement, Xero
recruited Arizona vocalist Chester Bennington. Jeff Blue, the vice president of
Zomba Music, had referred him to the band in March 1999. Bennington, formerly of
Grey Daze, became a standout among applicants on account of his unique singing
style. The band changed their name from Xero to Hybrid Theory.The newborn vocal
chemistry between Shinoda and Bennington helped revive the band, inciting them to
work on new material.The band’s renaissance culminated with a change in name; from
Hybrid Theory, the band changed their name to Linkin Park, a play on and homage to
Santa Monica’s Lincoln Park. However, despite these changes, the band still
struggled to sign a record deal. After facing numerous rejections from several major
record labels, Linkin Park turned to Jeff Blue for additional help. After failing to
catch Warner Bros. Records on three previous reviews, Jeff Blue, now the vice
president of Warner Bros. Records, helped the band sign a deal with the company in
1999. The band released their breakthrough album, Hybrid Theory, the following


Both Hybrid Theory and Meteora intertwined the nu metal and rap rock sound with
influences and elements from hip-hop, alternative rock, and electronica, utilizing
programming and synthesizers. William Ruhlmann from Allmusic regarded it as "a
Johnny-come-lately to an already overdone musical style," whereas Rolling Stone
called "Breaking the Habit" "risky, beautiful art".

In Minutes to Midnight the band experimented with their established sound and sees
them drawing 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. In it, only two of the
songs feature rapping. 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 growling and 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".

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.
