* [[GatewaySeries Gateway Music]]: Let's just say more than a few metalheads were introduced to hard rock/metal through this band. Whether or not they admit it is [[GuiltyPleasures another story]]. And if you're young enough and have not heard any of the Music/BeastieBoys, Linkin Park could have also been a gateway to the "eccentric" AlternativeRock scene with bands like Music/{{U2}} and The Cure, due to their experimenting with electronic and HipHop elements.

*** The funny thing is when some people tried putting ''these'' lines on a Facebook comment, Facebook ''refused to let it be posted because of it's "suicidal themes"''. No really.

** "Nobody's Listening" is a song about writer's block.

* BrokenBase: The band has, so far, the most divisive fan base in the music industry, to wit: the devout fans who stuck with them through all six studio albums, those who hail ''Hybrid Theory'' and/or ''Meteora'' more than the the last three studio albums, and the post-''Meteora'' die hard fans.

Added DiffLines:

* WinBackTheCrowd: Many fans who weren't too fond of the post-''Metora'' albums were won back with ''The Hunting Party''.

Added DiffLines:

* AndYouThoughtItWouldFail: Many fans' reactions to ''Reanimation'', due to the fact that it was a huge risk to have a remix album after only the second studio album. However, to this day it is popular with the fanbase.
** "Nobody's Listening" is a TakeThat to people who thought his of the band in general.

** LinkinPark wrote "Crawling" about Chester's genuine struggles with abuse as a child, and "Papercut" about someone struggling with meth addiction, but they were widely adopted by teenagers as songs to express their frustration at their parents for petty reasons. "One Step Closer" was not serious either; the lyrics were just them taking out their frustrations at the producer for making them do endless retakes of "Runaway" because they couldn't make the arrangement work. The band were so conscious of the audience they were attracting that they moved away from the nu-metal genre and started writing lyrics about other things.

* LoveItOrHateIt: ''A Thousand Suns''. Boy howdy. Some see it as the band's GrowingTheBeard moment, showing that they're actually capable artists with a glowing future from this point on, comparing it to ''[[{{Radiohead}} Kid A]]'' and praising it as the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic best album]] they've ever made. Also similarly to ''Kid A'', the rest see it as a failed attempt to be [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible "artful"]], or at least that their ventures into other styles all fell on their faces, [[SoOkayItsAverage rendering nothing able to truly stand out]].

** Mike pokes fun at Phoenix and his Twittering on his blog. He even made a banner that says "Blogging Totally Pwns Twittering" for fans of his blog to post on their websites in a response to one of Phoenix's Twitter posts.

* FandomRivalry: Many {{Deftones}} fans are resentful towards Linkin Park for allegedly copying the band's sound. The Deftones are indeed a major influence on the band, although many Linkin Park fans enjoy the Deftones, and the two bands have gone on tour together many times.

** There was one specific incident where [[Bring Me The Horizon]] was accused of stealing Linkin Park's style. Can be averted, but that depends on which you're a bigger fan of.
