Linkin Park Surpasses 4 Million On iLike

November 25, 2008

yo1

Most of you probably already know iLike, the music-based social network, from your experiences on Facebook. Over the weekend, Linkin Park became the first group to surpass 4,000,000 fans on iLike. This is the largest number of fans that have gathered together in support of one artist on a single social platform.

Earlier this year, our Linkin Park widget (seen at the bottom of my main blog page) crossed the “100 Million Views” threshold. Now, with the success on iLike, I wanted to take another second to say “thank you” to all of you that support the band and enjoy the music.

My band and the people at iLike are thrilled about this amazing achievement. We will be hopefully announcing a special event to celebrate. Stay tuned!

Thanks,
mike

PS: Road To Revolution DVD/CD is now in stores!

    Dude, I loved it! A lot of people would estimate your guy’s best performances to be about the year ’04 until you guys stopped touring but you have definitely gotten better. Musically (such as Little Things) and performance wise. Esepcially since you guys have changed transitions and such since the first PR show from the new album in ’07, at White River. I’m happy to say you’re my favorite band.🙂 Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!!!

  15. outlawserenade on November 26, 2008 at 10:19 am

    Dear shinod,

    If there’s a sudden ‘Kumbaya’ or ‘For he’s a jolly goodfellow’ greeting at the LPU board, it’s not my fault.

    Yours,
    serenade

  16. rockermeg on November 26, 2008 at 9:44 am

    I just checked on Facebook and the exact number is 4, 011, 039. Wow, I’ve never thought I’ve been a part of such a huge community! Congrats to LP, all LP fans on iLike and to ME! You must know that many of your fans don’t have any time for Internet or fanclubs and you couldn’t count them. For example: I’ve never been a member of any fanclub, because I’ve always considered myself as a music lover and buying the CD’s and listening to the music of the artists is enough for me. I became a LPN member, because I wanted to start posting comments on your Blog. Nice photo! The view must be incredible! I wish you larger crowd! Krassie K.

  18. tpbarbosa on November 26, 2008 at 9:08 am

    That’s huge!! I’ve just read it on the LP home page
    And it blowed me away, 4,000,000 fans?? O.O
    Yeah we are all an united family :p:p
    And there’s much more fans around Mike! Be sure of that.
    lol Unfortanely we didn’t get it on fuse.. but next time we will
    Sorry.

  19. miKer0cks on November 26, 2008 at 8:56 am

    O.o congrats guys!!!😀 Keep on Rocking!!! Best wishes from Greece😉 We want you to come back here for another concert next summer….It was absolutely awesome!!! And as you saw you have millions of fans here🙂 So we are waiting for ya😀

    grat job you guys, my congrats to you and the rest of the band, you deserve it and doesn’t this show how dedicated we fans (and LPST’s in my case) are? Let this be the reflection of how much your music touches millions of people around the world. On a note, I found this on YOTOOB and all I say is: This is finally a piano version of In The End dthat does justice to the song. And he didn’t leave your rapping out, you should check this out this young man is goind a great job:

  21. Lvix on November 26, 2008 at 7:54 am

    We don’t won the Best Fuse 2008 award…
    But this is just better news…
    Mike, i am a street soldier and it is my task to get this realized…
    I just have to say: Thank you i can be street soldier of the best band in history…
    With best band i don’t mean: The best music
    .. howerever for me you and the other guys make the best music i ever heard…
    But everyone can’t think the same way…
    Anyway those things like Ilike proove you guys are the best band with the most fans!!
    Congratulations…

  22. Annie on November 26, 2008 at 7:47 am

    4,000,000 fans! oh. my.god. congratulation to you guys. you earned it. and also congratulatin to you for the AMA award.
    road the revolution its absolutly amazing. take care everyone🙂

  27. Lynnie on November 26, 2008 at 5:26 am

    I am very proud to be one of those 4,000,000 fans on iLike, and I think I may be soley resposible for at least 75,000,000 of the views of the widget – what can I say? I have a lot of free time. I’m a student, what do you expect? Lol. Dude, seriously, though… congratulations. Odd how something as simple as a few million fans saying ‘iLike Linkin Park’ can make such a difference, isn’t it? And congratulations on the AMAs, too – I’m late, I know. And to ms_shock: Stop with the pregnancy thing! Mike will tell us IF/WHEN he wants to – let it go already! It’s not your business!

  28. zahra on November 26, 2008 at 4:47 am

    hey mike ya ddddaaa haaaa 4million is nooootttthing!!!!! u guys are the best band in the world!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!! I LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH!!!!! X)

  29. lucky_cat on November 26, 2008 at 4:44 am

    Congratulations! 4 million is a formidable success … and I agree with Hybr1d_7h3ory. Can’t say this better myself.

  30. Linkinboss on November 26, 2008 at 4:28 am

    congratulations mike, ^^ keep doing the good job. is good to know how much fans you have =P.

    but, about the road to revolution…the dvd dissapointed me a lot. the bonus features just were the 3 songs cut after the credits. =/ i still don’t get it, why ruin up a concert mixing up the setlist, and were are the “bonus content” in reality there are just what it supposed to be if you release a concert.

  31. LPAngel on November 26, 2008 at 4:11 am

    4 million? :-O i´m speechless. congrats =). YOU´RE THE BEST, i don´t get tired of saying this😄. P.S.- congrats for having won the award (AMA), you deserve =D

  32. ms_shock on November 26, 2008 at 4:02 am

  33. FAR on November 26, 2008 at 3:31 am

    congrats~~~this week is a really wonderful one~~

  34. raven_of_sorrow on November 26, 2008 at 3:01 am

  37. Aditya_the_warrior_within on November 26, 2008 at 2:07 am

    gosh this is one of the few times i’m saying ‘congrats’ lot of times to the same people !!🙂
    LPU… here … well you guys deserve the applauses !! can’t wait for the new album … i know its going to be kickass !!! also for dead by sunrise … goos going guys !!!

  38. Hybr1d_7h3ory on November 26, 2008 at 12:30 am

    I can’t get tired of saying this to you, Congratulations again Mike. You guys are just getting all types of accolades this week aren’t you. These awards and recognitions should show you that it is not who you are as a celebrity or as a member of a popular rock band, but rather it is who you are as a person that allows your fans to feel connected to you in so many ways. I can honestly say during this time of the year, I am thankful for you and LP and all the hard work you guys do to continue to kick ass but also being humble and connecting with your fans.

    If you don’t have another post prior to Thursday, Have a Happy Thanks Giving Mike…Hybr1d_7h3ory

  39. Jynxx on November 26, 2008 at 12:18 am

    nice one🙂
    but as you tell us at every show “linkin park have the best fans in the world”😉🙂
    also.. i just read a small interview in Kerrang with you, and what was said in it (supposedly by you) was wrong.. ‘you’ said that LP have never opened with One Step Closer before the Milton Keynes gig, but you have! I’ve seen you do it! I think it was Download Festival 2007 in the UK, Donnington? Sorry to be pinicity xD
    Also, I love the picture.. that would scare the crap out of me though😀

  40. KATHYxx on November 25, 2008 at 10:31 pm

    Is that another stage in the background of that picture? .-.

  41. Shinizzle3 on November 25, 2008 at 10:30 pm

    yeaaaii
    well but somehow it makes sence..you are the best band so you have the most and the best fans xD
    i love u guys❤

  42. Dori on November 25, 2008 at 10:25 pm

    That’s awesome Mike! I’m so happy for you guys! Road to Revolution is amazing!!! Have’nt watched the DVD yet, but the CD is awesome! You can sense the energy on stage without even seeing it!

    Is it raining down there? It’s pooring here! haha

  43. cDizzle185 on November 25, 2008 at 10:11 pm

    YOUR VIDEO SECTION ISNT WORKING!

    IAM SURE IF YOU KNOW THIS BUT IF YOU CLICK ON ANY VIDEO IT JUST PLAYS THE GLOURIOUS EXCESS ART SHOW ONE AND ONE WONT LET YOU WATCH ANY OF THE OTHER ONES IF YOU CAN TRY AND FIX THIS PROBLEM THAT WOULD BE AMAZING MAN

  44. ShadowerLiltani on November 25, 2008 at 8:32 pm

    4,000,000 fans. The internet has no limits. That picture is awesome. I love that feeling, of being up over a crowd and looking out at them, it’s extremely overwhelming. At PR in Hartford, my friend lifted me up on his shoulders while Atreyu were playing, and that was probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Ooh, special event. I wanna go too!!! bounces alot Well, you almost always post pictures of the after-math so I’ll look forward to seeing them.

  45. ritzifying on November 25, 2008 at 8:22 pm

    oooh A special event to celebrate? Most intriguing. : )

    I like the picture you chose to put up with this.

  46. Jaclyn on November 25, 2008 at 7:54 pm

    I’m shocked! O_O Congrats to everybody! You guys rock! )))

    Btw what about The WeMix contest?

  47. TEQUILA on November 25, 2008 at 7:49 pm

    Congratulations for another success!)))

  48. lynndarwinharris on November 25, 2008 at 6:34 pm

    Congratulations!!! You guys are the best!!! My Road to Revolution should be here on Wednesday! Can’t wait!!

  49. Lee on November 25, 2008 at 6:30 pm

    Congrats guys.🙂

  50. cuz on November 25, 2008 at 6:13 pm

    Congratulations guys! You are really special, poeple loves you, I love you! Just finished writing my memoir for school which turned into an essay about LP. Because you are the very big part of my life. Thank you for making this amazing music for us, thank you just for being🙂 And Road To Revolution is amazing!

  51. Hawaii_LP_fan on November 25, 2008 at 5:06 pm

    This is way cool, like GLOBAL cool!! Congrats Mr. Mike, Mr. Rob, Mr. Chester, Mr. Brad, Mr. Joe, and Mr. Phoenix. You guys deserve ALL the accolades & LOVE from around the world. You know, it’s just the beginning. 2009 is creeping up on us real fast & who knows the whole galaxy is yours for the taking. ET will probably call home. Haha, congrats again! P.S. Happy Turkey day, Happy Hanukkah, & happy holidays! :o)

  52. asaulp on November 25, 2008 at 5:05 pm

    Congrats! Who’s not to say that you guys totally deserve this😀 I bought Road to Revolution yesterday, and it’s mind-blowing.. fucking awesome.. LOVE the three hidden tracks at the end of the DVD! “Points of Authority” and “Papercut” – you never cease to amaze me. Hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and keep in mind that our dedication can only be explained by the fact that you guys BRING IT 110% every time. (:

  53. Janni_Loves_LP on November 25, 2008 at 5:02 pm

    Congrats Mike and the rest of LP! ^^ As everybody here are saying, you guys fully deserve it..! I love your music so much, and I have for several years, so thank YOU for being, what I concider, the best group in the world..!🙂

    Btw, I bought Road To Revolution today, and I have to admit it completely blew me away! It both looks and sounds amazing and the energy from both band and audience is unbelievable! You guys never fail to amaze me, and this is no exception.. Thank you!❤ love – Janni

  54. soyuneik on November 25, 2008 at 4:00 pm

    So..what your saying is that you are aiming for world domination? Ah, I see. Nice. ;C)

  55. bec on November 25, 2008 at 3:48 pm

    Congrats!

    You have a very dedicated following of fans – don’t suppose you fancy being interviewed for a column I’m writing on fan interaction and behaviour?

  56. MS_Ineedyou on November 25, 2008 at 3:39 pm

    I got Road To Revolution !!!! it’s AMAZING !!!! ;D Good job LP !!!😉 Congratulations !!! Thats really exciting !! ;D

    carol ;*

  59. MarishkaLP on November 25, 2008 at 3:08 pm

    Great to hear that! Congrats Linkin Park! you know there are much more fans in the world who, for some reason, couldn’t get to the internet and register on iLike to show that they like your music. i know a lot of your fans who don’t have such opportunity, though they listen to LP music and LOVE IT SO MUCH! just wanted to remind you about them and say that the figure of 4 million is far away from the real number of fans! you’re great Linkin Park! thank you for your music!!!

  60. ErbseLP on November 25, 2008 at 3:00 pm

    There you go! x) But I hate the “Ilike sidebar”.:/ I like the “Last.fm scrobbler” more than the “Ilike sidebar”, because you can the “Last.fm scrobbler” turn off.😡

    Btw. is it a surprise for you? LP is the best Band in the world and you have also so many fans without internet(for example my mom xD)…😀

    PS: In Germany you can buying the DVD/CD since friday. :p

  61. Carla on November 25, 2008 at 2:52 pm

    IT’S OVER 4,000,000!!!

    It’s no surprise though! You’re always making amazing music and deserve it! Congratulations LP!!!😀 Special event? I can only wonder what the can be.

  62. ixabel_LP on November 25, 2008 at 2:37 pm

    I agree with ravivandmikefan4life!!!

    U guys REALLYYYY DESERVE…=)

    Special event to CELEBRATE!!! COOL =P

  63. ravivandmikefan4life on November 25, 2008 at 2:32 pm
