Linkin Park Discography
Through early 2011, the Linkin Park discography includes four studio albums, two live albums, two remix albums and dozens of EPs, singles, video albums and music videos. The American rock band is made up of six members, vocalist Chester Bennington, drummer Rob Bourdon, guitarist Brad Delson, bassist Dave "Phoenix" Farrell, DJ and video producer Joe Hahn and Mike Shinoda, who provides vocals, guitars and production services. The Linkin Park discography features albums which have been certified diamond and quadruple platinum both in the United States and around the world. Highlights of the Linkin Park discography:
- "Hybrid Theory" Released in October 2000, "Hybrid Theory" is the first studio album on the Linkin Park discography. The album features hits such as "One Step Closer," "Crawling," "Papercut" and their most successful single, "In the End."
- "Meteora" Entering the Linkin Park discography as their sophomore release, "Meteora" made its debut at number one on the U.S. charts in March 2003. Among the tracks on the record include "Somewhere I Belong," "Faint," "Breaking the Habit," "Lying from You" and "Numb."
- "Minutes to Midnight" After four years of touring, the Linkin Park discography added another studio album in May 2007 with "Minutes to Midnight." In addition to the first single, "What I've Done," which was featured in the film "Transformers," the album featured hits like "Bleed It Out," "Shadow of the Day," "Given Up," and "Leave Out All the Rest."
- "A Thousand Suns" Released in September 2010, "A Thousand Suns" showed a more-refined side of Linkin Park with ballads and anthems. The most-recent release included tracks such as "The Catalyst," "Waiting for the End," "Burning in the Skies" and "Iridescent."
- "Reanimation" Filling a gap between the first two studio albums on the Linkin Park discography, "Reanimation" was the first remix album from the band. The 2002 record included tracks from "Hybrid Theory" and other unreleased music, all remixed with various artists.
- "Collision Course" Further combining their sound of alternative rock meets hip hop, rapper Jay-Z joined the Linkin Park discography in 2004 with the release of "Collision Course." Each of the six songs combined one Linkin Park song with one Jay-Z song, all performed together.
- "Live in Texas" Released as both a CD and DVD, "Live in Texas" chronicled Linkin Park's performances in Texas on the Summer Sanitarium tour in 2003. Music from both "Hybrid Theory" and "Reanimation" is performed live on stage.
- "Road to Revolution: Live at Milton Keynes" As the second CD-DVD combination on the Linkin Park discography, "Road to Revolution: Live at Milton Keynes" was recorded while the band performed on their Projekt Revolution tour in 2008. Jay-Z joined the band on stage at the Milton Keynes National Bowl to record the live album.
- "Frat Party at the Pankake Festival" Now somewhat of a collector's item for Linkin Park fans, "Frat Party at the Pankake Festival" was the first video album released by the band. Recorded in 2001, the album showcases Linkin Park on tour after their first studio album.
- "Download to Donate for Haiti" Released via their charity Music for Relief, Linkin Park put together and appeared on the 2010 album "Download to Donate for Haiti." The band also continued their charitable work in 2011 with "Download to Donate: Tsunami Relief."
