Before they finally landed a deal with Warner, Linkin Park received at least forty rejection letters. Now, 100 million records or so later–with Chester Bennington no longer with us–the band is looking to keep the legacy alive.
Step one is a 20th anniversary version of their debut album, Hybrid Theory. Along the cool stuff included is this 1999 demo that’s never (officially) seen the light of day.
The re-release of Hybrid Theory will come in several forms, including a 5-CD box set with B-sides, rarities, and demos. More details here.
