I’m sure there have been threads in the past on this topic, but they’re buried deep somewhere I bet. So as a way for me to get to know some of this community better, and to have a good ol’ discussion, what made you get into Linkin Park?
I’ll kick things off:
Whilst I loved “Numb” when it first received radio play here in Australia, I had never actually listened to Linkin Park. Naturally downloading music was hard for a then 8 year old. I enjoyed the song but never owned a copy until a couple years later when “Numb/Encore” made its debut. Still, music was hard for me to get as a 10 year old.
Despite numerous singles receiving air play, it wasn’t until “New Divide” came around in 2009 with Transformers that actually got me looking into the bands discography itself. I consider myself lucky in this way, as I feel as being exposed to these 2 songs, radically different, and loving them both is what got me into the band. I actively followed any all news after the release of “New Divide” has my interest had peaked and I was now desperately awaiting the release of a new album. Boy was I not disappointed, I loved “A Thousand Suns.” Watching the short recording session preview of what we now know as “When They Come For Me” on YouTube still gets me super excited. Something about Brad shouting with that megaphone got me insanely pumped.
So what got you into the band?
