Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: ''One More Light'' sounds like an attempt to capture the popularity of Music/TheChainsmokers, particularly their song "Heavy" sounding ''suspiciously'' similar to "Closer" (complete with a female guest singer).

** 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".

** Mike discusses it at length in an LPAssociation[[https://youtu.be/kXVEzC6PiBY Podcast]]. He notes that the band have often had conflicts with the label, but made it very clear when recording their first album that they wanted creative autonomy. He notes that they makes the music they want and are not bothered about making money. On the other hand, he believes that going back to a Hybrid Theory-era Nu Metal style would be truly selling out as his musical interests have expanded a lot since then.

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.

** 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]].
