Which was the first song you heard by Linkin Park. Mine was She Couldn’t or Castle of Glass.
Probably ‘In the End’
So that’s the song that started the magic?
Crawling Been in love with them ever since
Yeah, I remember laying in bed and listening to that song at night
Me too, later when I got the CD from my father
In the meantime I probably watched the music video every single time they played it on Viva TV
Ahahha cool…with most of their songs I have nice memories
For me it was
Burn it down
I never listened to music as a kid. That is to say, I heard songs on like the radio that I did enjoy, but nothing that made me actively look up music or listen to it on own initiative. I remember I was playing over at a friend’s house when I was either just barely still 12 or had just turned 13, and he had a playlist going and there was one that got stuck in my head after. Next time I saw him I asked ‘what was that song?’
TL;DR: In the End.
After that I still didn’t look into LP. Several weeks or even months later I watched a video that had Faint playing over the imagery, and I was like ‘oh it’s them again’. Fast forward another few weeks or months and there was a different video entirely that had No Roads Left on it. Then I was on some forum and it had a thread about what music people liked, and I was like ‘I’m actually sorta listening to music now’ so I posted the three songs and then someone was like ‘Oh you like Linkin Park?’ and recommended Numb.
After that I started looking up other LP songs (first Breaking the Habit, then One Step Closer, Shadow of the Day, Somewhere I Belong, Crawling, and it went on and on). LP literally got me into music in general, and as you can see my first songs were from all 3 of their albums at the time so I was immediately exposed to the wide range of their music.
I didn’t need to type all of that but what the hell, I normally don’t have anyone to talk to about this kind of stuff so gotta let it out somewhere xD
Somewhere I belong
Same for me
Crawling…January 2001. On my parents old PC. Never really cared for or thought much of music until I heard that song. It was the first time that upon hearing a single song, I sought out the other tracks from the album. Each song was somehow better than the one before it. I was hooked…
It’s okay, you can talk here
me too - May 2001 still my #2 song after breaking the habit and also got it tattooed
Mine was waiting for the end. And I still love it.
New Divide I was like 9 years old and had no idea what LP is, but I’ve loved the song since then
