Linkin Park’s Hybrid Theory was a defining moment in the musical library of the band. Now on their 20th anniversary, they have too much-uncovered gold for us. They’ve been digging through closets and attics. Now we’re getting a box full of goodies. Slowly they’ve been releasing some never before seen and heard demos for this build-up with the latest being ‘In The End (Demo).’
Have you heard the original track? Spot any differences? We sure do. This is amazing in itself, but what’s even more amazing is to look at what ‘In The End’ came to be from this. We can see the unpolished glaringly but in an endearing light that honestly sends us reeling. The talent is there, and we’re over the moon; they kept trying and pushed it even harder than the original.
Deluxe Box Sets Galore
“The stuff people uncovered and discovered in attics and boxes of old pictures, I was blown away. I couldn’t believe we even had some of this stuff. We found hours of video footage we didn’t know existed. We found versions of demos no fan has ever heard. There’s a lot of really special stuff. It’s a massive set.”
With these possessions found, and for the celebration, we’re getting 4 variations of the deluxe. This will include unreleased content such as songs, videos, and more. Being a hardcore fan, you’ve gotta collect all you can. Keep your eye on the prize; these babies are releasing October 9th– Just in time for payday.

With all these demos surfacing, we are really getting the opportunity to pay homage to growth and our roots. Life happens so fast and dirty in twenty years. Can you imagine the notes that have been perfected and the bars they’ve nailed time and time again? We’ve gotten to watch it all, and now we can take a step back this weekend and appreciate this band and the legend that is and always will be Chester Bennington (Rest in paradise, forever).
