How come Chester always said they change their name from Hybrid Theory to LINKIN PARK for political reasons? I’ve never quite understood that.
It wasn’t for political reasons. It’s because at the time the label had a band called Hybrid and the label didn’t want people mistaking Hybrid Theory for Hybrid. At least that’s how I understand it.
Interesting I wonder what he was talking about then.
They started playing shows under the name Lincoln Park, but everywhere they played at the time, everybody thought they were a local band named after each local Lincoln Park.
Their first name xero when it was formed in 1996
