Now you might be thinking that what is it with Apple to do with rockstars and specially metal addicted rockstars like Linkin Park. So lets first see their history.
Linkin Park is an Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band from Agoura Hills, California formed in 1996 and got their international fame due to the Album "Hybrid Theory". Linkin Park have won 2 Grammy Awards too. Their albums are:-
1. Hybrid Theory
3. Minutes to Midnight
4. A Thousand Suns
5. Living Things
There were a few side projects too such as Collision Course and Reanimation. But Linkin Park is alive due to the good understanding between the members and the members are:-
1. Mike Shinoda : Vocalist, rhtymic guitar, keyboards
2. Rob Bourdon : Drums
3. Brad Delson : Lead guitar, backing vocals
