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,, 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
