Linkin Park are one of the most successful artists of the twenty-first century. Their debut album – Hybrid Theory – propelled them into the mainstream and contained a number of huge singles such as ‘One Step Closer’, ‘Crawling’, and ‘In The End.’
Over the course of the band’s lengthy career, they continued to release commercially-successful singles despite bold experimentation. ‘Faint’, ‘Numb’, ‘What I’ve Done’, ‘New Divide’, ‘The Catalyst’, and ‘Burn It Down’ are probably the band’s most well-known songs outside of Hybrid Theory, but they’ve had plenty of other big hits over the years as well.
