Although rooted in alternative metal, Linkin Park became one of the most successful acts of the 2000s by welcoming elements of hip-hop, modern rock, and atmospheric electronica into their music. The band’s rise was indebted to the aggressive rap-rock movement made popular by the likes of Korn and Limp Bizkit, a movement that paired grunge’s alienation with a bold, buzzing soundtrack. Linkin Park added a unique spin to that formula, however, focusing as much on the vocal interplay between singer Chester Bennington and rapper Mike Shinoda as the band’s muscled instrumentation, which layered DJ effects atop heavy, processed guitars. While the group’s sales never eclipsed those of its tremendously successful debut, Hybrid Theory, few alt-metal bands rivaled Linkin Park during the band’s heyday.
Linkin Park unveiled The Hunting Party in June 2014. The album — produced by the bandmembers themselves — was inspired by the punk, metal, and hardcore they had listened to as teens. The resulting collection was loud, raw, and heavy, featuring guest appearances by Tom Morello, System of a Down’s Daron Malakian, Helmet’s Page Hamilton, and hip-hop legend Rakim. When Linkin Park returned in 2017, they were accompanied by a drastic shift in their sound. “Heavy,” a duet featuring singer Kiiara and production by pop songwriters Julia Michaels and Justin Tranter, appeared on the band’s seventh effort, One More Light. It became their fifth number one album. Barely two months after its release, one week before beginning a major American tour, Bennington was found dead at his home in Southern California; he was 41.
