* DemotedToExtra: Joe "Mr. Hahn" Hahn was a key part of the band's appeal in the Hybrid Theory days, but since those days has stayed in the background. Part of the reason is his DJ scratching was a big thing in the NuMetal days, but has gone out of fashion, and the band's musical style has generally moved to push it into the background as well. Hahn himself appears to have become more reclusive than he was, so this may be an intentional thing.
