    Linkin Park have been teasing something big for the 20th anniversary of their seminal debut album "Hybrid Theory". Fans have been on a journey with the tidbits posted on linkinpark.com during this past week, but, now, the wait is over! The official announcement has just dropped, and the band is ready to unveil exactly what this 20th anniversary box set is going to include.


    Fans who check out linkinpark.com/hybridtheory20 will discover that Linkin Park have gone way, way beyond any possible expectations held by longtime, hardcore "Hybrid Theory" fans. Strap yourself in and check out the full list of what's in the "Super Deluxe" box set:

    [​IMG]
    • 5 CDs
      • "Hybrid Theory"
      • the 2002 "Hybrid Theory" remix album "Reanimation"
      • "B-Sides Rarities", described as a "12-track compilation of rare B-sides"
      • "LPU Rarities", 18 tracks that were previously LPU-exclusive
      • "Forgotten Demos" - 12 demos that fans have never heard before
    • 3 DVDs
      • the band's 2001 documentary, "Frat Party At The Pankake Festival"
      • "Projekt Revolution 2002 / The Sequel To The DVD With The Worst Name We've Ever Come Up With", a follow-up to "Frat Party" which will include a never-before-seen full live show
      • a DVD containing two live shows: one at The Fillmore in San Francisco from 2001, and the fan-favourite Rock Am Ring 2001 festival set
    • 3 vinyls
      • the "Hybrid Theory" EP, which there has never been a pressing of before
      • "Hybrid Theory"
      • "Reanimation", which will have two discs
    • a casette reproduction of the original 2-track Linkin Park Street Sampler
    • an 80-page book with content and photos provided by the band, most of them never-before-seen
    • a poster of Chester Bennington
    • 3 litographs featuring visuals by Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn as well as the band's art director Frank Maddocks
    • a replica of the Projekt Revolution 2002 tour laminate
    This mindblowing amount of content comes down to USD $199.98, and those familiar with Linkin Park's beginnings know how that amount doesn't come close to the value of all of this put together. Among the many demos and unreleased tracks included on the CDs is a recording of "Pictureboard" which has been eagerly searched for by Linkin Park's fanbase since first being mentioned in a throwaway comment by Mike Shinoda in 2005.

    Pre-ordering will get you an instant download of "She Couldn't" from the "Forgotten Demos" CD. It's also available now on streaming services and YouTube.


    Meanwhile, fans who are after smaller bundles are being offered these two options:

    [​IMG]

    Firstly, the Vinyl Deluxe Box Set, a more minimal edition of the box set that contains just the "Hybrid Theory", "Reanimation" and "B-Sides Rarities" vinyls. This edition costs USD $59.98.

    [​IMG]

    Secondly, the Deluxe CD, a 2-disc package that contains "Hybrid Theory" and "B-Sides Rarities", plus a 16-page booklet. This edition is listed at USD $19.98.

    On top of this, there is a new merch collection which includes items such a pin and a dad hat, as well as a couple of T-shirts designed by Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, respectively, showing new takes on the "Hybrid Theory" winged soldier concept. (These images also appear on the lithographs included in the "Super Deluxe" box set.)

    All of these box sets and related bundles, including digital editions of all the music, are available for pre-order right now - all the details and more at linkinpark.com!

    How speechless are you? Let us know!

    I like the MS and JH shirts. I'm also glad they're offering the more affordable vinyl bundle, which I'll get instead.

    As soon as I saw what was offered in the Super Deluxe set, I just had to get it. Amazon also have pre-orders up but not sure which versions these are as on the UK version, one shows the Super Deluxe photo but the title states it's the vinyl version. So Amazon will need to clear this up for people.

    Also, the 20th Anniversary merch on the store is awesome. I already picked up 2 t-shirts - absolutely love the metallic gold 20th Anniversary logo version!

    So happy right now.

    I kinda wish this was the first time I ever heard She Couldn't, would have given me the chills.

    The mix sounds amazing though!

    You're too kind.:partyminus:

    I do wish HT EP had a CD tho. But damn, I want that LPU Rarities and Forgotten Demos CDs.

    I'm curious if some of the labels of "Xero Demo" means it will be Mark on the vocals and not Chester.

    I might buy it if only the band's websote would let me get through checkout.

    The site demand is insane.

    Wuhu, that sounds amazing. Forgotten Demos + LPU Rarities. Finally the Pictureboard demo and She Couldn't (without the static noises)
    I already have the HT EP in digital/flac though. I'd love to enhance my physical Linkin Park collection with a CD version of it though. Too bad :/

    So does that mean all the samples could finally be cleared?

    I am super duper extremly F'n excited.I preordered that thing on Amazon . Although part of me says I'll regret that in October LMAO

    Also I do find it odd that the HT EP is being reissued as a vinyl but not as a CD. But I don't wanna complain

    Can someone refresh my memory tho? Which LPU releases did the LPU B-sides originally appeared on?

    Not sure where you're getting the prices from, but I'm showing on the LP website and Amazon that the Super Deluxe box set is only $199.

    Mike just said on his twitch stream that the mos def sample was cleared, so I'm guessing the other samples have been cleared as well.

    The only thing that irks me is that the "small" vinyl voxset has a B-Sides vinyl but the super deluxe doesn't.
