Among rock bands, it's unheard of for a band to be "created" by hand-picking people to put together, the way boy bands are formed. Remarkably, Linkin Park has done this and continued to be successful and relevant for an entire decade, in spite of releasing albums only sporadically.

Some best-known songs: In the End, Numb, What I've Done

Tournament HistoryEdit

Current record: 18-7

Something happened between 2007 and 2008...Linkin Park stopped being a band that was cool to hate, and just simply became cool. In their first two years in the tourney, they managed a win against hapless losers, but were mid-carders at best. In 2008, they went from 14 seed to 2 seed, and looked every bit the part, when they reached the quarterfinals three of four years, and even beat Metallica in 2011 to reach the finals.
