Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda Discusses Plans For Hybrid Theory’s 20th Anniversary

Linkin Park‘s iconic album Hybrid Theory turns 20 this October and rapper Mike Shinoda says the surviving members of the band are plotting a way to celebrate the milestone.

Speaking with Kerrang!, Shinoda revealed Linkin Park has been working with a bunch of key figures from the band’s history to devise the best way to mark the anniversary, in the absence of late frontman Chester Bennington.

“We’ve done our best to go to a lot of people who are family, in a sense, and say, ‘What do you think we should do? What would be a good celebration of Hybrid Theory?’ and try our best to do a bunch of those ideas,” Shinoda said.

“I would urge the fanbase to just let it happen,” he continued. “The Linkin Park fanbase is always one of the most creative and active fanbases out there. So always, the problem for me is that if I’m not allowed to divulge information because I want it to be a surprise, then the creative fanbase starts jumping out and imagining things. They come up with their own great ideas – and then once in a while those great ideas are better than our ideas!”

We’ll bring you more info as it develops!

In the meantime, Shinoda has just released his second solo album, Dropped Frames Vol. 1, which was developed via Twitch.
