Linkin Park have been generating a huge amount of buzz ahead of their latest release A Thousand Suns. With the lead single “Catalyst” out this week and appearances throughout the summer, their fourth album is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
Last.fm Trends check out how their previous albums have done among Last.fm listeners, to see what the new material needs to beat…
Linkin Park’s debut album Hybrid Theory heralded the start of a new era in music, heading up a tidal wave of new bands that would break into Nu-metal and emo as well as a return to form for straight up rock that continues to this day. At 24,824,468 scrobbles it’s still being listened to a lot, especially for an album over eight years old.
Despite that though the band’s most listened to track remains breakout single “In The End“, which has so far received 5,260,775 scrobbles, and averages around 15,000 listeners every single week, even now.
