Traumatized by his fathers untimely death when he was 11, Tyler grows up to be a musician in much the same style. When time travel is invented, he sees a way to make Chester proud of him.
- He traveled to the mid-2000s, when Linkin Park and other bands were at their height, so as to blend in.
- He named the band partially as a tribute to Chesters time in Stone Temple Pilots .
- To help prevent a paradox, he chose his new last name, Joseph, after his father's bandmate Joe Hahn.
- If Tyler went back in time, how come the chorus to "Stressed Out" says he can't?
- Because it hasn't been invented yet.
- Seems to be either Jossed or a paradox because Tyler Bennington, age 12 is more than aware of TOP's existence.
