LINKIN PARK Wants Fans To Participate In 20th Anniversary Celebration Of 'Hybrid Theory'
Linkin Park's debut album Hybrid Theory was influential in ushering in the nu metal scene of the early 2000s.
The album would later achieve unprecedented success and made the band a global sensation. Hybrid Theory also became the best-selling album of 2001.
Linkin Park's phenonemal debut offering is turning 20 this year and the surviving members would like fans to join the celebration. The "One Step Closer" hitmakers are asking fans for submissions–from photos, videos, souvenirs and whatnot–which they plan to compile for the album's 20th birthday in October.
"We’re looking for photos, videos, ticket stubs, merch, flyers, souvenirs and anything else you collected from the early days of the band in the late 90’s through the HYBRID THEORY era of 2000-2002. Some great examples include (but are not limited to) live concert footage and photos, pictures of band members and signed goodies from LPU meet and greets," LP wrote on their socials.
And the fans didn't fail the boys! Check out some of the entries diehard Linkin Park supporters shared on Twitter. Warning: it's nostalgia-inducing!
I have no concert photos cause I have never attended one, but here's my first ever Hybrid Theory cd when I was in 2nd grade. You guys made my fucking childhood. pic.twitter.com/gSGhXJok1X— Je (@TheJrmyMrls) March 6, 2020
