"Linchpin" is a single by American rock band Fear Factory from their album Digimortal. It peaked at No. 31 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart.[1]

Music video[edit]

The music video shows shots of machinery and what appears to be a polygraph machine intercut with footage of individual band members playing while at times being surrounded by smoke or doused in a white liquid. A picture of the Vitruvian Man, along with a rendition of Fear Factory's logo can be seen briefly at the end of the video superimposed over lead singer Burton C. Bell. The video was directed by Thomas Mignone.
