    Part of Me, back in early 2000. No idea how he got it, but my cousin had an original HTEP, and I thought it was f'n awesome. Then around early October that year, I started seeing ads on like MTV for Hybrid Theory coming out, and I was like "HOLY SHIT IT'S THEM!" lol Been hooked ever since.

    Way back in '02, the first song I heard was probably In the End or Place for My Head. But the song that really got me into them was With You.

    I used to listen to the backstreet boys when i was really young (4-6 years old). After they went on a hiatus I stopped listening to music as a whole. In 2005 I made an account on xanga (myspace-like relic) and decided to search up DBZ stuff on it. I came across 2 DBZ amv's with clips I had never seen of the show and the songs playing with them were "A Place For My Head" and "In The End". I wasn't as hooked with "In The End", but APFMH was absolutely amazing. I went onto youtube and searched more videos with APFMH and eventually found "Numb" which I also loved instantly. I had no internet and hated radio so I stopped listening to LP until 2007 When I saw some Naruto amv's with "What I've Done". I went to use the internet at the library everyday just to hear that song and recorded it onto my phone along with Numb, By Myself, and A Place For My Head. Haven't stopped listening to them since. So end of story, "A Place For My Head" got me into LP :D

    In 2001 I was starting to hear One Step Closer and I thought this was an interesting one-hit wonder. Then I heard the song Crawling and I thought two-hits are fine from this band. But then after listening to In the End, combined with the 9-11 attacks, I was committed to Linkin Park. And they have not failed me since.

    Was being driven home from school one day and In The End came on the radio. Changed my life forever. I wasn't into music until I was about 9 and I remember just being like I DIDN'T KNOW SOUNDS LIKE THESE EXISTED.

    With You. I got a little demo tape when I saw them perform back in 2000. I was just a kid who thought it was cool that the guy in the band signed and gave me a tape. It had One Step Closer on one side and With You on the other. I didn't (and don't) care for OSC, but something about With You stuck with me at the show and I played that tape on damned repeat until I got the album a couple days later.

    In The End. Still one of my favourites, but Crawling made me adore them.

    Back in the Hybrid Theory days, I remember seeing "One Step Closer" on MTV. At the time I was still developing my musical tastes, and initially I thought of them as angry idiots!

    In Australia I don't think we got "Papercut" as a single, so the next song I heard "Crawling". The band started to grow on me (as did "One Step Closer"), but I still didn't really like them that much.

    Finally, "In The End" came blasting on the radio, and from then I was hooked. I think it was "In The End"'s iconic piano melody that really got to me, since I play the piano. Something just clicked in my mind back at that moment; suddenly all of Linkin Park's music was brilliant. And "One Step Closer" became one of my most favourite tracks from LP, because it was what exposed me to the band and made me notice them.

    I saw the videoclip of In The End back in 2005 early in the morning right before going to school (I was like 14 years old).
    I wrote down the title of the song so I could download it later when I got home from school. Then I found out that tracks like Breaking the Habit, Crawling and One Step Closer also came from this same band. Since that day I was sold.

    The first song I remember consciously listening to them was Don't Stay when a friend told me to check out the song on the website.
