** They've also grown wearing of "Crawling," now that they've become aware of it's [[MemeticMutation memetic status]] of mocking Wangst.

Added DiffLines:

** The ''Hybrid Theory'' EP also qualifies, as it was released in small numbers to begin with and contains some stuff that hasn't been re-released. In particular is the first pressing (when Linkin Park was still called Hybrid Theory) which remains a sought-after collectors item.

** Chester revealed in a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UTX_GgNzEY Scuzz TV]] interview that, while recording "Hybrid Theory", execs wanted to fire Mike and make him the sole frontman. Chester outright refused because he knew if Mike was fired (as the band's primary songwriter and producer), the rest of the band would walk out with him and Chester would be out of a job.

This was briefly chronicled later by Mike in the Fort Minor song "Get me Gone".

Added DiffLines:

** Don Gilmore (producer of "Hybrid Theory") got in on this a little bit with idiotic record executives. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UTX_GgNzEY Chester told a story]] about an exec listening to a track, and saying he didn't like it. Gilmore replied "Wait, let me do something" and turn one of the knobs slightly up. The exec said "That's much better! The track is great!" [[EpicFail All Gilmore did was turn the volume up slightly]].

Added DiffLines:

** They had this attitude towards their nu metal related material, which is why they dedicated themselves sound anything but that. Chester even outright stated that he hated the genre. They have since lightened up on it a bit, and reintegrated elements of their old material into their new albums. In fact, Chester even came to turns with the nu metal label, even saying he liked Music/LimpBizkit.

* BlackSheepHit: "Breaking The Habit", an electronic song without distorted guitars in it, and "Numb", a ballad. Both from their album Meteora, and both would substantially influence the direction they would take afterwards. Notably, neither song features Mike Shinoda on vocals, and it contributed to the perception of Chester as the frontman.

* ShoutOut: Dave going by "Phoenix" began as a joking reference to ''Film/MysteryMen'', which stuck.

* DoingItForTheArt: Why they've changed their musical style so many times. They're afraid of repeating themselves and are dedicated to expanding as many musical horizons as possible.

** Averted in that the band has to come to terms with their past and they have begun playing "retired" songs, like "Runaway", again while on tour for their newest album, ''LIVING THINGS''. As this album is seen as a melding together of the group's old and new.
