Linking Park become Faint

Linkin Park is a rock band from Agoura Hills, California. Since their formation in 1996, the band has sold more than fifty million albums and won two Grammys.[1][2][3] With their debut album, Hybrid Theory, they achieved mainstream success; the album was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005.[4] Their following studio album, Meteora, continued the band's success, topping the Billboard 200’s album charts in 2003, and was followed by extensive touring and charity work around the world.[5]

Recognized for their adaption of the nu metal genre into a radio-friendly style in Meteora and Hybrid Theory,[6][7] the band’s latest studio album, Minutes to Midnight branched away from their previous nu metal sound, venturing into a variety of other genres.[8][9] The album topped the Billboard Charts and became the third best debut week of any album for the year.[10][11] They are also known for their several collaborations, most notably with rapper Jay-Z in their mash-up album Collision Course, and many other artists on Reanimation
