According to recent Chart Data, the LINKIN PARK song “In The End” has surpassed one billion streams on Spotify.
Just last year, LINKIN PARK’s music video for “In The End” surpassed one billion views on YouTube, their second to achieve those numbers, with “Numb” hitting the milestone back in November 2018.
LINKIN PARK’s Mike Shinoda spoke about the creation of “In The End” in an interview with Linkin Park Web. He said: “I came up with the piano and the chorus music and chorus lyrics. Then Brad [Delson, guitar] came up with the guitar in the verse and we worked on the bassline and composition. From there, I think everybody in the band began chipping in and adding their parts and critiquing each other’s parts. And right before we went into the studio to record it, we scrapped the beat I had originally written for the verse, and had Rob [Bourdon, drums] do a new one, which is the one that we recorded.”
Last October, “Hybrid Theory” re-entered Billboard’s Album Sales chart at No. 3 after selling 17,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending October 15, 2020.
“Hybrid Theory”‘s reappearance on the chart was fueled by the album’s 20th-anniversary deluxe reissue, which dropped on October 9, 2020 via Warner Records.
LINKIN PARK have not performed together in public since October 2017, when the surviving members staged a tribute concert in Los Angeles to late singer Chester Bennington.
