“It’s incredible to think it’s been 20 years since Hybrid Theory was released,” the band previously said in a statement. “All gratitude to our fans who made this epic journey we started 20 years ago possible. We dedicate our music to you. We rededicate our Hybrid Theory to you.”

‘Hybrid Theory’ was released in October 2000 and spawned a number of hits including ‘One Step Closer’, ‘Crawling’, ‘Papercut’ and ‘In The End’.


In August, Beat Games also announced that a Linkin Park music pack was launching for Beat Saber, including 11 tracks from the artist’s history as part of the 20th anniversary celebration.

Meanwhile, a group of roadies who have worked for Linkin Park, Slipknot and Fall Out Boy recently came together to form a new band called Knifes.

Knifes’ debut EP ‘Proof Of Concept’ is to be released on October 2.
