  18. Dax on May 28, 2008 at 5:50 am

    congratulations!! i can’t imagine how life would’ve been without hybrid theory! thank you

  19. ShadowerLiltani on May 28, 2008 at 5:22 am

    Oh, by the way, I went and looked up the list of best selling records on wikipedia. (Not the most reliable of sources, but for the most part, this looks pretty accurate). Anyways, Hybrid Theory happens to be on that list. I was thinking about this from a length of time stand point, The Beatles have sold a truckload of records over the last twenty years, because, they’ve had twenty+ years to go diamond. Hybrid Theory went diamond in under a decade. I’m not dissing The Beatles, I’m simply saying, Linkin Park, and a handful of other artists on that list, have sold records faster than them. That’s pretty freaking cool in my book.

  20. Linkin_Giady on May 28, 2008 at 5:18 am

    Good job guys!!! You did a wonderful cd and you must be proud of it!! anyway Mike, I’m so exicited that in 23 days you’ll come to Italy!!! It’ll be my first time that I see you in concert in Venice! I hope to meet you personally! You are my heroes! =) Greetings from Italy!! Ps=sorry for the bad english!

  21. ShadowerLiltani on May 28, 2008 at 4:58 am

    My fave album cover is the one with the pinkish-purply background and the stars. And I like the one with the stairs. And I hit the submit button by accident… But anyways, thank you for the gift Mikey-puu. And that award is very shiny. (also shaped like a particular body part…) And you earned it.

  22. mickeymonkey on May 28, 2008 at 12:27 am

    Congrats! Loved the album. you guys deserve it. By the way will you guys give the awsome people in HOUSTON a chance to get a greet & meet?
    we’d love to have you.

  23. shinoda_me on May 28, 2008 at 12:08 am

    okay Mike .. its 28th today ….. you’re proving time and again that you wont be active when YOURCONSCIENCE, ANSTICE and i are around😦 …. (gets reminded of the time when the three got first, second and third post … runs away)

  26. nillp on May 27, 2008 at 8:06 pm

    this is going to be totally random and all but the link to the james irvine foundation… why is it spelled “foundtain”? is it a bad typo or something?

  28. ParanoidDucky on May 27, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    There is no other band that deserves it more! Congrats!

  29. amp101 on May 27, 2008 at 12:59 pm

  32. anchica75 on May 27, 2008 at 8:02 am

    4 days without post?? omg..?!r u dead ? :O

  33. maria on May 27, 2008 at 8:00 am

    Tried to cry out no

    To prevent you from doing it all

    And to find the reason why it can’t just be

    Buried into oblivion

    And be million

    Of tears left inside

    Collapsed into pride

    And teased into a spiral wing

    Until all the ash will be picked up again

    You gonna like this impressionist poem🙂 as much as I like it) And it’s rather phylosophycal one🙂

  34. maria on May 27, 2008 at 7:59 am

    How it all happened that I

    Didn’t know about your tortures

    And outrageous fortunes

    That made you chase all the truth

    You always wanted to see

    And enhance it

    Up to a certain extent

    But it will lie where it lies

    Until someone encores

    The best part of your late play.

    Another part) Smile Mike)

  35. maria on May 27, 2008 at 7:58 am

    Tried to cry out no

    To prevent you from doing it all

    Collapsed into pride

    And teased into a spiral wing

    Until all the ash will be picked up again

    Another part of you gift🙂

  36. maria on May 27, 2008 at 7:57 am

    A lantern light,

    A dark side cry,

    The useless fry,

    The homeless fight

    Inside of us

    And can I now say

    That all my sins have been revealed

    And I’ve been trivia led

    Or at least felt thread of

    Being so hideous

    And tedious

    With those I loved

    With my behalves

    Or am I wrong in my conjectures

    Saying all these rejection rhymes

    Persuading you to have faith in me

    Not to squirrel away

    All the burnt memories

    Of the times when…..

    poem-gift) for you Mike)

  37. LILISH on May 27, 2008 at 7:27 am

    Oh Mikey…( 29th of may, i’ll go to pass very difficult exam but it’s very important for me! WISH ME LUCK, PLEASE,PLEASE!!!)) Love U!

    Yayy Good job to everyone in the band for all their hard work & dedication to HT. I downloaded all the alternate album covers. I have been trying to see which one I like the best, but I can’t pick a favorite..you all should of had your original LP logo on the 4th M2M cover, that would have been really nice. & I really like the 8th & 10th cover. & are you all thinking about a new record or no? Since you confirmed that this summer will have the last single from M2M..?
    Live & Love LP🙂🙂🙂 -Perwana

  71. Shadowfax1007 on May 25, 2008 at 5:35 pm

  79. Kat on May 25, 2008 at 12:55 pm

  82. nillp on May 25, 2008 at 11:46 am

    HT is the best record ever [2] ~ ♥

    “Meteora was nice, but I bought Hybrid Theory twice.” haha ~ i loved it! lol

  83. analoggirl on May 25, 2008 at 10:31 am

    I think you owe your sales to Lupe Fiasco and his FNF crew. “Meteora was nice, but I bought Hybrid Theory twice.”
    haha – just kidding.
    Ten million sales in the U.S. alone is quite the accomplishment. You wanted your music to transcend barriers and reach people on your own terms and you did just that. Congratulations to you and the boys.
    Also, the alternate covers are a cool way of thanking the fans and regenerating interest in the album. Well done, LP. And thanks.

  84. Celestial on May 25, 2008 at 10:07 am

    Yeah it does look like a crystal…or diamond dildo. Kingdom of the Crystal Dildo.

  85. WhiteAngel on May 25, 2008 at 7:40 am

    You guys REALLY deserve this! And it looks so great ;]] Now, I wish that you receive this prize for your new album, too! P.s wow, nice new site theme ;]

    I’m responsible for two out of those 10 million HT’s bought, so – you’re welcome, Mike.

    Actually, make that three. I’ve used up both and probably could use another.

  123. HJP007 on May 24, 2008 at 11:17 am

    Awesome! Good job guys! Well deserved🙂

  124. Fishgoingwest on May 24, 2008 at 11:15 am

    Thanks so much for your letter,white handwrites and black back looks really fantastic

    The new MTM covers are so useful and really really give at least me a surprise,I think it must be a surprise for all the LP fans.

    The last single Leave Out All The Rest will come this summer?I can’t wait to see that video!!!

    Leave Out All The Rest is an gentle and great song!

  127. Ilo on May 24, 2008 at 10:20 am

    Hey, congratulations!!! That´s what you guys deserve because I´m sure you´ve put a really hard work in it and I hope you´ll sell the other albums as much as Hybrid Theory to get an other one…….NO! I´m sure you´ll get some for the other albums!!😉

    And thanks for the mtm-covers……I took the one with the stairs. I don´t know why but it jumped out of my computer and said “choose me!” So thanks a lot.

    Have a nice weekend,

    Ilo

  128. _mYfOrGiVeNeSs_ on May 24, 2008 at 10:12 am

  130. Jaclyn on May 24, 2008 at 9:59 am

    Wow dudes, you’re Diamond now! Congratulanions! @ Jome ))) it’s not a penis, it’s a phallic symbol of success! And the biggest thanx for LP covers! Finally i see the cover that i really like – it’s the 3rd – the city and big letters, well the 1st with a stairway is good too, the others just suck (frankly speaking).

  131. Jaclyn on May 24, 2008 at 9:59 am

    And now about the layout – I opened your site when my lil bro was near (he’s 12 and doesnt like LP and its members coz I love you lol) and when he saw this new layout, his eyes opened real wide and he was kinda thunderstruck ))) and went as WHAT IS IT? WHO’S DONE IT? AND HOW? I’ve only told that it’s Mike Shinoda page and he :’ Well you can tell him he’s got my respect now” So get some respect from LP hater )))

  132. antje on May 24, 2008 at 9:57 am

    Congrats Mike. You really deserve it! Thanks for sharing the covers with us, really good! Wish you guys all the best…. Many greetings from germany….

  134. spraypaintNinkpens on May 24, 2008 at 9:23 am

    Mike thanks for sharing the other album cover options, as a fan who waited for MTM for 4 years, I really do appreciate that. In regards to the album cover, I really think the cloud covered picture fits the album more, but oh well not a big deal I suppose. Congratulations on 10 million sales with HT. Next up is meteora!

  135. Jenn on May 24, 2008 at 9:03 am

    wow mike that diamond award is fuckin amazing! congrats on selling that many here! you guys are legendary. thanks for the gift too🙂 you had some nice album artwork there. you guys are creative!

Can’t wait to see all of you on July 18th… Lots of LOVE and SUPPORT…Chastity

  139. Sharp_Swimmer on May 24, 2008 at 8:14 am

    Congrats on the diamond award! You guys deserve it more than anyone.🙂 And thanks for letting us see the other album covers – they’re dope, but you picked the right one for Minutes, definitely. New layout looks amazing, too. Hope Glorious Excess will be a success.🙂

  141. TheCarousel on May 24, 2008 at 7:55 am

    The new site looks awesome, the splash page alone is badass.
    And the Diamond award, is just amazing and so sick! You guys deserve it so much, and I’m a bit surprised that you are gettin it just now when, LP has been on the diamond list for a while now. Congrats guys, and keep on making the amazing music that you do.
    And I must say that it does suck to live on the East coast where I cannot go to one of your art shows…
    have an awesome day

  142. Sashy on May 24, 2008 at 7:49 am

    Oh no! What happened to the red/grey layout! I like this one, but the old one looked way better😦

  143. masimoes on May 24, 2008 at 7:25 am

  145. shinoda_me on May 24, 2008 at 7:18 am

    true … each album has been diverse .. i wouldn’t have recognized M2M as of LINKIN PARK’s creation by myself but im extremely glad that you guys took a turn away from the usual route
    … how many people care so much about the world’s problems so as to put out records on whats in mind? not many i guess… pretty cool that you have the ‘universally personal’ and ‘global issues’ stuff under your wing now =) they satisfy me in any mood … you deserve the award Mike =) you’re awesome

  146. Aditya_the_warrior_within on May 24, 2008 at 7:18 am

    awesome !!!!congrats mike !!! congrats LP !!! it will not be long when you guys sell out 100 million !!🙂🙂🙂 i’m glad we are also a part of this joy .. thanks for sharing that with us !!! …. good luck for the next album !!! waiting for it !!!! cheers !!!!

  147. BraneWorld on May 24, 2008 at 7:16 am

    Yo, Mike!!! 1) The NEW layout is terrific and interesting!!!😉 Love your skull and…style.😉 Awesome!! 2) It’s great to pick some other kinds of album cover, those’re cool and…pretty.😉 Love ’em all! 3) Congrats for this award.”10 million in the US ALONE”, that’s unbelievable! Great!!!😉 Hybrid Theory is a nice album!😉 4) Must check out these vids, just for fun http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzlW1Xkhh5w and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c9xyMv4TPg AND http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s-UZ6EETp8Y😉 Have a wonderful day, Mike!🙂

  148. Noe_Kenji on May 24, 2008 at 7:07 am

    i think that every album is the best in his way
    in HT, every song is exceptional, perfect i reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally love it!!!!!. meteora’s production is espectacular, very good. And the songs and every feeling on every song, and MTM…. OMG one f the best albums of our times
    it’s impossible to me to choose one album
    they are so diferent that you can’t compare them

    Noemi

  149. anchica75 on May 24, 2008 at 6:58 am

    MIKE!!!!!!! CONGRATS ON THAT!!!! so awesome!! and its so wonderful that you come back to say thank you … we know that all the love we give you isn’t wasted but the way you come back time and again more than anyone else (in all bands… even Linkin Park) helps us feel loved back … thanks for all you’ve been doing .. your records are just plain brilliant … much love from India🙂

    edit: i really love it that you put up a hand-written note rather than typing it out .. i guess you must have thought about it being way more special this way for us =) we love you

  152. outlawserenade on May 24, 2008 at 6:38 am

    some people need to stfu, really. and if that thing is real diamond, y’all should sell it and like, solve the world’s problems with it. and whether they like it or not, I’m still the high priestess of DSS. Pfft..

  153. Noe_Kenji on May 24, 2008 at 6:35 am

    more tornados, more fire… natural disaster after natural disaster…it smells end…
    have you read aout maya’s profecies mike? an important change i world in november 24’s2012

    I know you’re coming to Russia soon so.. maybe you could make one more stop on the way home? It’s only like 2hours flight.
    Well, even if you notice that comment I will be really happy) Please, take a sec there and say Hi to Chester.
    My name is Sergii, and I hope someday I will sing along with you at your concert!

    omg…. so sad… i’ve just watched something so scaring and sad in TV….
    People are so desesperate after the tsunami that, there is families selling their organs…. T.T mothers and fathers of the same family have sold their kidneys… I can’t imagine how people can take advantage of poor and desesperate people to sell their organs…. the worst is that this business works because occidental people travel to india looking forward organs… And i’m sure there is more things, horrible that we even can imagine…
    i think there is nothing worst like humans…. its unberable…SACANDALOUS!!! T.T

    contragulations to this certified, you and your bandmates deserve it

    LMAO @ the dildo comment2
    

  202. Romeo4wheels on May 23, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    Oh My God !! Congratulation to all those things. WOW WOW WOW !!!

  203. lpsweet24 on May 23, 2008 at 10:18 pm

    CONGRATS!!!🙂 thanks for the gift! Love the new website design!

  204. KATHYxx on May 23, 2008 at 9:58 pm

    WOW.
    Firstly, congrats for MTM and HT getting diamond……

    secondly, do they really put real diamonds in there?

    thirdly, thanks for the present

    fourthly, nice splash page, and that’s coming from someone who’s pretty anal about web design. With the vanitas post in mind, looking at this picture definitely puts a twist to it. Thought provoking (of which, i am not done thinking yet, critique comes later).

    finally…. LMAO @ the dildo comment

  205. axrinekey on May 23, 2008 at 9:55 pm

    VERY NICE!😀

    to Steppinrazor: “it told me no one commented yet!”, too!
    to mike: i think being a lp- fan is so… (wordless)
    looking forward to you guy’s up- coming singles+ album!
    yours truly, nicole.

  210. SteppinRazor on May 23, 2008 at 9:13 pm

    ::pouting:: It told me no one had commented yet!

  211. SteppinRazor on May 23, 2008 at 9:12 pm

    PLEASE forgive me for saying this, but, it looks rather phallic.
    now that that filth is out of my system…😀
    Thanks so much for the alternate covers and WOAH! at HT sales! Congrats!

    ::thrilled to be the first one posting a comment::

  212. WTF on May 23, 2008 at 9:07 pm

    It’s not a dildo. It’s Chester’s penis extension. Or penis killer.

    (old pic, not same award)

  213. Sashy on May 23, 2008 at 9:00 pm

    Congrats on the award, Minute to Midnight and everything else you and Linkin Park have done over the years =)

  214. murry on May 23, 2008 at 8:59 pm

    The new layout is glorious. And that is one beauty of a phallic statuette. Congratulations!

  215. west_lp on May 23, 2008 at 8:58 pm

    By Kira: That last picture of yout award looks like a dildo.

    hahaha,….

    it really does!!!

  216. Y_ on May 23, 2008 at 8:57 pm

    congrats!! and thanks for the album covers. those gonna be in my ipod touch soon😉

    cool new pages! so interesting…i hope i can go to at least one of the art shows…

  217. west_lp on May 23, 2008 at 8:54 pm

    I love u man, lol… congratulations, HT and MTM are really good albums….

    lpamerican.com

  218. Kira on May 23, 2008 at 8:48 pm

    I like No. 7. I really like the color of the ground in that one. That last picture of your award looks like a dildo.

  219. WTF on May 23, 2008 at 8:39 pm

    Make the white font green or something. lol

  220. WTF on May 23, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    It kind of looks like a diamond penis. LP must feel really special with those awards. Chester will probably tell everyone it’s his porn star award.

  221. xclutchingmycure on May 23, 2008 at 8:33 pm

    congratulations to all of you guys, you guys are my heroes.

  222. NoFace on May 23, 2008 at 8:26 pm

    You go purple 0.0
    Nice pre-site enter. Those small $ reminds me of some Tolerado pics you posted quite a long time ago.
    Those album covers are beautiful, and I am srsly thinking that you guy should have chosen one of those artwork instead of the current cover. Hopefully free album covers will lead to other free things.Something like In Rainbow or Ghosts I – IV?
    10 fucking millions copies sold. Damn. The number one question is how to make another album that can overcome HT. your freaking iron lung.
    -And for anyone who watch Queer As Folk, ain’t that diamond award look like the gay porn crystal d*ck award? Just.. erecter?- >.>

  223. PinkWater3 on May 23, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    Oh my god this is so cool! Congratulations on selling so many albums, it’s insane! My favourite cover is the fourth one, put it on itunes already and it looks great!

  224. Ezza on May 23, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    Shit 10 million copies of HT sold .that’s cool and the alternate covers for M2M are fully sick but itunes hates me and wont let me load them oh well

  225. Megan_Elice on May 23, 2008 at 8:23 pm

    So, those covers are truly amazing. I saved them all. ^_^
    That award is so beautiful!!! Full congratulations; it’s an amazing album. You guys earned it. =D
    Here’s to the future success, not just of these two albums, but all past and future work you all do. Congrats!! Much love!!!!

  226. alyeska39 on May 23, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    This post is just full of awesome! The new site looks great (although I still can’t see what I’m typing, but I’m sure that’ll get sorted out), and I can’t wait for the new works, if only i lived in LA. If everyone lived in LA, half the world would be at that show. Spurs are still better… even if they are losing… go Spurs!

    Thanks so much for those album covers! They look so awesome! And congrats on that Diamond for HT! Y’all definitely deserve it, looks cool too!

  227. WTF on May 23, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    haha awesome. I want to touch it. Are you sure those are music awards and not pornstar awards?

  228. vanessa_6487 on May 23, 2008 at 8:12 pm

    I just love M2M is such a great album…. n congratulations…. u derserve that and even more I will always say this you are just AMAZING Mr. Shinoda ;]…. love u a take care….. LP rocks
