So here's a question for you?


#1

How come Chester always said they change their name from Hybrid Theory to LINKIN PARK for political reasons? I’ve never quite understood that.


#2

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
