In advance of the 20th Anniversary set arrival, LP just uncovered the “In The End (Demo)” and within a week, it amassed over 1 million streams showing that the appetite from fans is as firm as ever.
We asked you guys, as part of our Linkin Park competition to tell us what the album meant to you, and we've collated some of those answers here.
Paving the way for the album, Co-Founder Mike Shinoda also personally unboxed the Hybrid Theory: 20th Anniversary Edition Super Deluxe Box for fans in this video...
Regarding the breadth of the Box Set, Shinoda said, “The stuff people uncovered and discovered in attics and boxes of old pictures, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe we even had some of this stuff. We found hours of video footage we didn’t know existed. We found versions of demos no fan has ever heard. There’s a lot of really special stuff. It’s a massive set.”
