L.inkin Park wasn’t always called Linkin Park. Die-hard fans know that the nu-metal band initially formed in 1996 under the name Xero. When front singer Chester Bennington joined in 1999 (July 20, 2017), the boys renamed themselves Hybrid Theory, shortly afterwards Linkin Park. The concept of “mixed theory” left a lasting impression and so Linkin Park’s debt album was named “Hybrid Theory”. Songs like “Papercut”, “One Step Closer”, “Crawling” and above all of course “In the End” leave a lasting impression. After the album was released, Linkin Park toured Europe in 2001 with the Deftones, among others.
