Linkin Park - Go for green


Californian alternative rock band from Agoura Hills that started life as Xero. Only after singer Chester Bennington had joined, the career of the band - now known as Hybrid Theory (an album was given the same title later) – got going a little. 

Origins of name of band Linkin Park - small parkWhen it really started to blossom the band wanted to change its name to Lincoln Park, a suggestion of Bennington, after the green stamp-size park in Santa Monica where Chester often drove by.

When it became clear however that the band’s coveted internet address, www.lincolnpark.com, was already in use (by Lincoln Park in Chicago; there are hundreds of Lincoln Parks in America), the spelling was 'phonetised'. 

Active: 1996-present, USA
