! Trivia Tropes
* 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.
* ContractualPurity: Some MoralGuardians cried foul when the band began to use profanity on ''Minutes to Midnight'', after releasing the notably profanity-free albums ''Hybrid Theory'' and ''Meteora''.
* CreatorBacklash: To celebrate ''Hybrid Theory'''s ten-year anniversary, the band announced that they'll never play fan-favorite "Runaway" again, citing it as the worst song they ever wrote.
** 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.
* CreatorBreakdown: Chester Bennington's. Sexual abuse, divorced parents, and drug addiction, all before he was eighteen.
** Coupled with ManlyTears: On several occasions, when they attempted to play "Breaking the Habit" live, he broke down and cried. However, it's interesting to note that while the song's subject matter fits in line with Chester's past, the lyrics were penned by Mike without Chester's input.
** A specific example lies in "Bleed it Out": the lyrics were rewritten numerous times, resulting in the opening line "[[LampshadeHanging Here we go for the hundredth time...]]"
* DirectedByCastMember: Joe has directed almost all of their music videos.
* DyeingForYourArt: During the Hybrid Theory period, Mike would often dye his hair red or blue. Less obvious to people was the fact that Chester dyed his hair blond during that period. Both of them reverted to their natural colors, black and dark brown respectively from Meteora onwards.
* ExecutiveMeddling: The band wanted to shift styles more drastically for Meteora (as evidenced by the many electronic demos from that period released on Underground volumes) but the record company wanted more nu-metal. As a result, the album was something of an compromise between the two styles. This seems to have been a good thing - the album's most acclaimed track is "Breaking The Habit", a track based on an electronic instrumental Shinoda had put a lot of effort into. Had they made the whole album in this style, they would have alienated older fans, and had they not included it, might not have convinced the record company they could be successful with more like it.
** There are hints that "What I've Done" was written purely because the record company didn't see a suitable single on "Minutes To Midnight". The fact the band had written almost 150 songs before this means this could be likely. In the documentary "Meeting Of A Thousand Suns", Shinoda says that the album's first single 'doesn't have to be some 'What I've Done shit'.
* HeAlsoDid: In addition to the above, Joe was behind a short film entitled ''The Seed''.
* HeyItsThatVoice: There are plenty of acclaimed underground rappers present on ''Reanimation'', such as Pharoahe Monch, Chali 2na and Black Thought as well as fellow nu-metal alumni [[Music/{{Korn}} Jonathan Davis]] and Aaron Lewis of Staind.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The Xero Demo Tape. When people were requesting the band to play the track "Reading My Eyes" live in 2006, the band members were up for it, but didn't have any copies of the song at hand, as they were on tour. So Shinoda searched the internet and downloaded the EP from a fansite. The band then learnt the song from the mp3. Since Shinoda has released other Xero era demos since then, it is entirely possible he still has the tape and its masters at home but didn't have access to them at that point.
** Since the band is unlikely to ever officially release "She Couldn't", it also is this.
* OldShame: Chester feels this way about "One Step Closer" because of the 'shut up' section earning him so much infamy. He has said it is his least favorite song the band has done.
* OneOfUs:
** Several of the band members, most notably Joe Hahn, are fans of anime. It also explains why their songs are in the [[TransformersFilmSeries Bayformers films]].
** They've also been known to participate in self-indulgent wankery, such as when [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nhZ3KWgMATA Mike brought out a Hello Kitty Squier Stratocaster during a performance of "From the Inside".]]
** They had a [[Franchise/{{Halo}} "Halo Bus"]] during 2004 where they challenged other bands to tournaments and were, by their own accounts, unstoppable. They also recorded a song that shares its name with the franchise and has a running time of [[AIIsACrapshoot three minutes and forty-three seconds]].
** Mike likes to occasionally insert memes into his blog posts. Basically, they're very good at this trope.
* ThePeteBest: Who the hell is Mark Wakefield again?
* PromotedFanboy: Mike after working with Rick Rubin, the man behind some of his favorite albums such as ''[[Music/RunDMC Raising Hell]]''. While recording ''A Thousand Suns'', he had a nerdgasm after getting to play with the same 808s drum machine used on that album.
** One of their songs being used for a ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' [[GundamVsSeries video game]] probably got a {{Squee}} out of at least one of the guys.
* ThrowItIn: A partial example with "Bleed it Out". The song's working title was "Accident" due to Brad flubbing the original riff. The rest of the band liked his screw-up and that became the new riff.
* TrollingCreator: The band's co-vocalist Mike Shinoda has had shades of this in the last few years. Teasing snippets of new songs only leading to unrelated Website/YouTube videos or claiming that a band member had quit. Recently Mike sent a link out on Twitter touting new pictures from the upcoming fifth album. When clicked, the link sends fans to a picture of a [[VisualPun Troll]] [[LampshadeHanging doll]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** "Breaking the Habit" was originally conceived as an instrumental [[EpicRocking lasting over ten minutes]]. It was recorded at a more sane length, dubbed "Drawing" and eventually made it onto the ninth [=LPU EP=].
** There were several more artists lined up to remix tracks for ''Reanimation'', including Prince Paul, Z-Trip and Tricky.
