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.

Meteora just pips it, coming in at 2nd with 25,786,656 scrobbles so far, while their most recent effort – Minutes To Midnight – leads the pack with 28,350,352 scrobbles in just three years.

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.
