Linkin Park
Linkin Park is an American band from Agoura Hills, California. Formed in 1996, the band rose to international fame with their debut album, Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond by the RIAA in 2005 and multi-platinum in several other countries. Linkin Park has released seven studio albums (2000's Hybrid Theory, 2003's Meteora, 2007's Minutes to Midnight, 2010's A Thousand Suns, 2012's Living Things, 2014's The Hunting Party, and 2017's One More Light). Linkin Park has sold over 90 million albums and 42 million singles worldwide and won two Grammy awards; with five #1 albums in the USA, eight Top 40 hits on the Hot 100, ten #1 hits on Alternative Songs, and eight #1 hits on Mainstream Rock. The band is currently on hiatus, as lead singer Chester Bennington committed suicide on July 20, 2017.

Having adapted the nu metal and rap metal genres to a radio-friendly yet densely layered style in Hybrid Theory and Meteora, the band explored other genres in their third studio album, Minutes to Midnight, which was released in 2007. The album topped the Billboard charts and had the third best debut week of any album that year. The band has collaborated with several other artists, most notably with rapper Jay-Z in their mashup EP Collision Course, and many others included on Reanimation.

Charity:
On January 19, 2010, Linkin Park released a new song titled Not Alone as part of a compilation from Music for Relief called Download to Donate for Haiti in support of the Haiti Earthquake crisis. On February 10, 2010, Linkin Park released the official music video for the song on their homepage. The single itself was released on October 21, 2011.

On January 11, 2011, an updated version of Download to Donate for Haiti was launched, called Download to Donate for Haiti V2.0, with more songs to download. For the updated compilation, the band released Keaton Hashimoto's remix of The Catalyst from the "Linkin Park featuring YOU" contest.

Shinoda designed two t-shirts, in which the proceeds will go to Music for Relief to help the victims of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami disasters. Music For Relief released Download to Donate: Tsunami Relief Japan, another compilation of songs, in which the proceeds will go to Save the Children. The band released the song titled as Issho Ni, meaning "we're in this together", on March 22, 2011 via Download to Donate: Tsunami Relief Japan.

In the wake of Typhoon Haiyan, Linkin Park played at Club Nokia during the "Music for Relief: Concert For the Philippines" in Los Angeles, California, and raised donations for victims. The show was broadcast on AXS TV on February 15. Other artists during the tour included The Offspring, Bad Religion, Heart, and The Filharmonic.
