I'd be very suprised if you didn't know Linkin Park, because they are known all over the world and are very recognizable!!!

It all started in 1996, when three high school friends: Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon, and Brad Delson, started to take music more seriously and recruited few more members to form a band called Xero. Initially they were recording in Mike'bedroom, which gave birth to a small demo-tape. 3 years later a new vocalist, Chester Bennington, joined a band and their name changed into Hybrid Theory (which is also the name of their first album). When they found out that this name is taken, they renamed the band again, this time into Linkin Park. After facing a lot of rejections from major record labels, Linkin Park finally landed a record deal with Warner Bros Records in 1999.


They released its breakthrough album, Hybrid Theory, the following year. The most known song from HT is called In the End. Their second album, Meteora, featured a mixture of the band's previous nu metal and rapcore styles with newer innovative effects, such as usage of a shakuhachi (a Japanese flute made of bamboo) and other instruments. The third album – that is Mintues to Midnight - had stray away from its previous harsh and hard sound, being calmer and more mood-setting. Next album, A Thousand Suns, was much more experimental than its predecessors. Because of its different sound and genre-bust, some fans left the fanbase of Linkin Park, not liking the change. But the change also brought some new people to their music. The latest and fifth album from them is Living Things, which is incomparable to Hybrid Theory. The 'grow' of the music is incredibly heard in songs such as Burn it Down. To sum it up, the band came a long way from rap rock and alternative sounds to electronica and synthezisers.

Some of the LP songs were used in movies like Transformers (New Divide) and Twilight (Leave out all the rest).


The actual band members are:

Rob Bourdon – drums, percussion

Brad Delson – lead guitar

Dave Farrell – bass guitar, backing vocals

Joe Hahn – turntables, samples, programming, keyboards

Mike Shinoda – vocals, rhythm guitar, keyboards, piano

Chester Bennington – vocals


And some songs recorded by them:

Aerosmith

Hi everybody,


this month we'd like to tell you about two bands that we all know and adore ;p.

The first one is amercian Aerosmith, found in Boston. This band exist for almost 43 years! It's awesome that they still stick together. The oldest member of Aerosmith is 64 years old. His name is Steven Tyler and he's a lead singer and he occasionally plays piano. He is known as the "Demon of Screamin' due to his high screams and his wide vocal range. His most famous acrobatic move is hanging from a microphone static.

Except him, the others band members are:

Tom Hilton – responsible for bass,

Joey Kramer – drums,

Joe Perry – lead guitar,

Brad Whitford – rythm guitar.

Their first, self-titled album was released in 1973 and the most famous song from this album is 'Dream On'. And the last album is Music from Another Dimension and song which promotes this album is 'What Could Have Been Love', which we find quite awesome.

These are some of Aerosmith's most popular songs:
