Linkin Park had a steady start by blending the sounds of NuMetal, {{Rap}}, {{Rock|AndRoll}}, and [[RapMetal together]], eventually ditching the NuMetal when it became a DeadHorseGenre and bringing in elements of Alternative Rock, ElectronicMusic, and other influences (though with ''The Hunting Party'', they returned to their NuMetal roots). While they remain one of the most popular current rock acts, there are also others that aren't keen on all the screaming and the lyrics, leading to the common stereotype of Linkin Park being the band ''du jour'' of "whiny, angsty teenagers with no good reason to be" the world over. This is most reflected in forum jokes and memes made about the band, almost always referring to songs from ''Hybrid Theory'' and ''Meteora''; songs usually involving those who tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it didn't really matter and '''''CRAWWWLLLLING IN MY SKINNNNNNNNNNNN'''''. [[BrokenBase Their fanbase has been split]] since the release of ''Music/MinutesToMidnight'' over bringing [[NewSoundAlbum new influences]] into their sound. This hasn't deterred the band any from continuing to [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly do what they want]] with their music, leading to reactions that are more predictable in their hysteria than whatever Linkin Park chooses to put out next.

** ''A Thousand Suns'': Electronica, with some experimental thrown in. More rap than ''Minutes to Midnight'' but not as much as before.

* CallBack: "When They Come for Me" has a few, being a boastful rap that calls to mind the band's earlier hip-hop tracks "Reading My Eyes," "Step Up," and "High Voltage." He references "Points Of Authority" by saying he's not the same guy that 'forfeit the game'. He also refers to the band's first album "Hybrid Theory" in the line "Once you have a theory of how the thing works, everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first." Also, the Middle Eastern sounding vocals towards the end of the song are quite similar to those of the intro to the band's song "Carousel," The theme of the song is that Shinoda takes his own path and doesn't care what people say, and they can either keep up with him or be stuck behind.

** It may be coincidental, but "Living Things" fifth track is "I'll Be Gone". The album straight before that, "A Thousand Suns", had "When They Come For Me", which was also the fifth track. And what are some of the lyrics from the song "When They Come For Me"?
---> ''Ohhhh, when they come for me, come for me, I'll be gone.''

** By some extension, ''A Thousand Suns''. It is at best, ''[[SerialEscalation weirder than most Linkin Park records]]'': Being more electronic based and more experimental than albums before it and albums after it.

While their music has been featured in dozens of films, Linkin Park has a particularly strong association with the ''Franchise/TransformersFilmSeries''. In addition to providing singles for the first three movies and the video game ''[[VideoGame/TransformersRiseOfTheDarkSpark Rise of the Dark Spark]]'', they collaborated with Music/SteveJablonsky and Music/Hans Zimmer on the score for ''[[Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen Revenge of the Fallen]]''. Hasbro commemorated their involvement with the franchise in 2013 by issuing a limited-edition [[PaletteSwap redeco]] of [[Franchise/TransformersGeneration1 G1]] [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Linkin_Park#Toys Soundwave]], cast almost entirely in gold plastic and featuring the LP logo on his cassette door/chest, and accompanied by four of his cassette partners (also done in gold).
