Poll: Which Linkin Park album is the best?
We’ve been asking you for your favorite songs from different artists for a while now, so it’s time for a change. Now, we’re going to expand the question a bit – although it doesn’t really make picking an answer any easier – and ask your favorite albums from each artist.
So, we present the very first Loudwire Nights Album of the Week poll. You will have until Friday noon ET to vote. We will then play the three songs from the album with the most votes during the Loudwire Nights Album of the Week block to start the show the following Monday!
As the late Chester Bennington’s birthday approached (March 20th), we decided to start with Linkin Park. So which of Linkin Park’s seven studio albums is the best?
Their debut in 2000 Hybrid theory is still their best-selling album to date. It sold 30 million copies worldwide and reached number two on the Billboard 200. However, its 2003 follow-up Meteors, which featured the hit “Numb”, topped its predecessor’s chart and landed at No. 1, as did minutes to midnight (2007), A thousand suns (2010) and The living beings (2012).
The hunting party (2014) broke the string of No. 1s, but their seventh and final record with Bennington, 2017 One more light, was able to bring it back once again.
But don’t let chart placements and sales figures sway your decision, we want to know which one is your absolute favourite. Choosing a favorite song can be tricky and can depend on the day, but with an entire album, there’s more to consider. So head below to vote for your favorite Linkin Park album, and tune into Loudwire Nights next Monday at 7 p.m. ET to find out which record prevailed.
Loudwire Nights with Toni Gonzalez airs nightly starting at 7 p.m. ET. You can connect anytime, from anywhere here or by downloading the Loudwire app.
