American rock band Linkin Park has recorded material for seven studio albums, the current one named One More Light, after one of the songs in the album.A single from the album titled "Heavy" has been released worldwide. The band was formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1996 by three high school friends; Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon, and Brad Delson.[1] The group later expanded to a six piece when they added Joe Hahn, Dave "Phoenix" Farrell, and Mark Wakefield to the line-up. Mark Wakefield was later changed by lead vocalist Chester Bennington.[2][3] After facing numerous rejections from several major record labels, Linkin Park turned to Jeff Blue for additional help. After failing to catch Warner Bros. Records on three previous reviews, Jeff Blue, now the vice president of Warner Bros. Records, helped the band sign a deal with the company in 1999. The band released its breakthrough album, Hybrid Theory, the following year.[2] The album produced four singles, "One Step Closer", "Crawling", "Papercut" and "In the End".[4] The album included a total of twelve songs in addition with two special edition tracks available in Japan. Later in 2002 the band released a Remix album Reanimation, which would include works from Hybrid Theory and non-album tracks.[5] Reanimation debuted on July 30, 2002, featuring the likes of Black Thought, Jonathan Davis, Aaron Lewis, and many others.[6] Reanimation claimed the second spot on the Billboard 200, and sold nearly 270,000 copies during its debut week.[7] The remix album included twenty remixed songs, mainly hip-hop influenced.[4]

Following the success of the two releases, the band released Meteora, in early 2003. Meteora spawned five singles, "Somewhere I Belong", "Faint", "Numb", "From the Inside", and "Breaking the Habit" which received significant radio attention.[8][9] The album included twelve songs, which included some non-single hits like "Lying From You" which peaked the Alternative Songs charts, and "Session", an instrumental track from the album, was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance in 2004. The band then released a mashup CD/DVD set released on November 30, 2004 with rapper Jay-Z.[10] It went to number 1 on the Billboard 200 upon its release.[11] The Extended play contained six songs recorded overnight. The song like "Dirt off Your Shoulder/Lying from You" being a non-single charted in UK-single charts. Linkin Park returned to the recording studios in 2006 to work on new material. To produce the album, the band chose producer Rick Rubin. Despite initially stating the album would debut sometime in 2006, the album was delayed until 2007.[12] Warner Bros. Records officially announced that the band’s third studio album, titled Minutes to Midnight, would be released on May 15, 2007 in the United States.[13] After spending fourteen months working on the album, the band members opted to further refine their album by removing five of the original seventeen tracks.[14] Minutes to Midnight sold over 625,000 copies in its first week, making it one of the most successful debut week albums in recent years. The album also took the top spot on the Billboard Charts.[15] The album included singles like "What I've Done", "Shadow of the Day", "Bleed It Out", "Given Up" and "Leave Out All the Rest". The album contained politically concern songs like "Hands Held High" and "No More Sorrow" and few environmentally concerned songs like "What I've Done".

Samples of notable speeches of J. Robert Oppenheimer (left), Mario Savio (center) and Martin Luther King, Jr. (right) were used in A Thousand Suns.

In May 2009, Linkin Park announced they were working on a fifth studio album, which was planned to be released in 2010. Shinoda told IGN that the new album would be 'genre-busting,' while building off of elements in Minutes to Midnight.[16] He also mentioned that the album would be more experimental and "hopefully more cutting-edge."[17] Bennington also addressed the media to confirm that Rick Rubin would return to produce the new album. The band later revealed the album would be called A Thousand Suns.[18] While working on the new album, Linkin Park worked with successful film composer Hans Zimmer to produce the score for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.[19] The band released a single for the movie, titled "New Divide". Joe Hahn created a music video for the song, which featured clips from the film.[20] On June 22, Linkin Park played a short set in Westwood Village after the premier of the movie.[21] After completing work for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the band returned to the studio to finalize their album.[22] The album featured four singles "The Catalyst", "Waiting for the End", "Burning in the Skies" and "Iridescent". For the next album the band again started recording in 2011 and the album Living Things was released in June-2012. The album sold over 220,000 copies during its debut week, ranking No. 1 on the US Albums Charts.[23] Linkin Park's single, "Castle of Glass", was nominated for 'Best Song in a Game' at the 2012 Spike Video Game Awards. The band also performed at the award ceremony on December 7, but lost the award to "Cities" by Beck.[24] The album featured four singles "Burn It Down", "Lost in the Echo", "Powerless" and "Castle of Glass". On August 10, 2013, the band collaborated with American musician Steve Aoki to record the song "A Light That Never Comes" for Linkin Park's online puzzle-action game LP Recharge (short for Linkin Park Recharge), which was launched on Facebook and the official LP Recharge website on September 12, 2013. On the day of the game's release, Linkin Park made a post on their Facebook explaining that the song used to promote the game would be included on a new remix album, entitled Recharged. The band also worked on the soundtrack for the film Mall, which was directed by Joe Hahn.[25]

In 2014 the band released an album, The Hunting Party which featured more raw and loud sound as compared to their other albums. The album is the first one to have featuring artists like "Page Hamilton" of "Helmet", "Rakim", "Daron Malakian" of "System of a Down", and "Tom Morello" of "Rage Against the Machine".[26] The album spawned five singles; "Guilty All the Same", "Until It's Gone", "Wastelands", "Rebellion", and "Final Masquerade".
