    I am glad Linkin Park made it to the top since they truly deserved it…It was an awesome DVD..Minutes to Midnight was a great album with lots of great messages.

  2. CraigT on December 29, 2008 at 10:20 pm

  7. tpbarbosa on December 28, 2008 at 8:09 am

    YEAHHH! LINKIN PARK beats Britney wh*e Spears!!! 1st round*
    I loved it so much, that DVD is the best thing ever I really do like that, I’ve already watched it 34564 times :p
    I also know many ppl from other forums that bought it, well I kind of influencied them to do it๐Ÿ˜€
    LP IS THE BEST :D:D
    Well, although I bought it on the the day it came out, I don’t think I have a little participation on it :p

  8. Kalini on December 28, 2008 at 7:25 am

    Of course, so many people have chosen RTR for a Christmas gift. I couldn’t wait till Christmas, I bought it one week after its release, when it came to Bulgaria. Congrats! KK

  9. Aditya_the_warrior_within on December 28, 2008 at 3:35 am

    that was but obvious๐Ÿ™‚
    ya me to glad to be a part of them … LP 4 EVER !!!

  10. Crzycanadian on December 28, 2008 at 1:24 am

    23 + million :0

    I know I have contribiuted to that by about 0.00000000084% Not too bad! LOL (Pretty sure the math is off ;P)

  11. LinkinParkRULES on December 27, 2008 at 2:36 pm

    wow congrats guys! You so deserve it! Linkin Park forever! =)

  12. ShadowerLiltani on December 27, 2008 at 1:50 pm

    Nice๐Ÿ™‚ I had put RTR on my xmas list, cause that’s how bad I wanted it. Boy I’ll tell ya, my, and my family’s paychecks the last couple of months, plus bills and collection agencies combined, have sucked us dry and I didn’t get to go xmas shopping at all this year. My parents had to buy gifts and put my name on them. Shopping this year just went down like, 40% too, because of the economy. I’m trying to diss you or anyone else, but, while it’s on my mind, fuck the numbers, I think we should all think about how lucky we are, because some people may never have anyone in their corner to have a chance of success like that. Just a thought.

  13. rockermeg on December 27, 2008 at 11:26 am

    Woo!!! It was an awesome show
    Somebody put up a RtR vs Live in TX thread up on the LPUMB…I vote RtR…mainly cause I was there xD
    What would you vote Mike??
    xxx

  14. ArtMsh on December 27, 2008 at 10:34 am

    Congratz!And what about you’re new album you didn’t post any news for a long time…
    And by the way it would be cool if you would use Reading My Eyes as a demo for a new song in the new album.
    I mean give it some new lyrics and a better modern sound๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Madlen on December 27, 2008 at 8:32 am

    Whoa congrats:D23 million is wow:DI have a copy too -actually i had it pre-ordered:D^^This is amazing…but you totally deserve it:DIt looks like the low album sales don’t affect you:D

  16. bec on December 27, 2008 at 5:39 am

    I never thought something with ‘Milton Keynes’ in the title would do so well!

    Congrats!

    Hope you had a nice christmas – you may recall seeing this at Milton Keynes, I had a meeting with Whitney earlier this year about holiday e-cards and made this as an example with the hope you may design one or a contest could be held for a future year.

  17. missdunno on December 27, 2008 at 5:39 am

    Congrats! You were number 36 last week in France, not so bad! I bought a copy the day that it came out, I couldn’t have waited more…

  18. Shadow on December 27, 2008 at 4:13 am

    That’s real great news! Congrats to everyone who contributed to this awesome CD/DVD! Wish it was as high in the german charts, unfortunately RTR dropped from 17 to 20 as far as I know๐Ÿ˜ฆ Anyway, be happy about your number 1 there! Congrats again!!!! LP rules!!!๐Ÿ™‚

  19. MarishkaLP on December 27, 2008 at 3:57 am

    oh, congrats LP! the sales became almost twice as large the whole month! that’s incredible! you deserved this – the show’s awesome! i LOVE it!!!

  21. miKer0cks on December 27, 2008 at 1:52 am

    Congrats guys!!!! i’m not suprised though, that you are the #1…You guys rock. You are always number 1!!!!๐Ÿ˜€

    Welldone once againโค

  22. erippe on December 27, 2008 at 12:52 am

    Congratulations!!But their 1 year(?) effort and,when expectation to a fan is considered…I also find out that I take a big lead over about 2…I congratulate it again!!Take care:))

  23. KiryuLP on December 26, 2008 at 11:24 pm

    I’m not surprised with who made it on top. I had my copy on pre-order and got it the night it came out. I was up all night watching it over, and over, and over. As far as I’m concerned, that was the best live show I’ve ever seen you guys do, though I’ve personally never been to one of them. I hear people all the time, “Chester isn’t screaming well” or “Mike doesn’t seem to be energized” or “That was a bad preformance.” But I for one, think that this just proves you unique you guys are. I watched Live in Texas, then watched Road To Revolution. I could see a HUGE change. I respect that change, and hope that gou guys continue to change as you need to. I’ll LP anywhere, even to hell.

    KiryuLP

  24. nillp on December 26, 2008 at 9:14 pm

    congratulations..! you guys really deserved it, this dvd is REEEEEEEEEEEEALLY great!๐Ÿ˜€

    is good to see that LP continue selling lots of original CD’s even with all this piracy we have nowadays..! .

    anyway. just want to give the BIGGEST UP to you, your bandmates and for all those who contributed in some way to make this happen..! (‘: – and some kudos to us, your fans.. since we’re the best and most loyal of the hole world.. /without wanting to brag about us/ xP –

    changing completely the subject.. it’s kind of old, but i still enjoy to read this.. hope you too! lol

  25. mike_n_LP_4ever on December 26, 2008 at 8:25 pm

    AH! You guys beat Britney Spears? Oh, hell yeah! Cangratulations!

    -Cati

    PS – I like Crawling, Bleed it Out, & Jigga What/Faint the best outta the whole DVD. I started laughin when you (Mike duh!) were rappin with Jay and said “Wanna marry ya hoes!” & “Then I fucked her again!” I was like, “wow!!! Did Mike just say that???” Mike’s a gangsta!!!! c(=

    PPS – Fuck that! (sticks middle finger up in the air) Raw….=)

    Congratulations guys!!!
    RTR is really the best ever…

  38. withyou on December 26, 2008 at 4:57 pm

    Should we even be suprised, I mean who else can do all that and sell out concert? I was lucky enough to get RTR for Christmas…. fantastic present. Well done guys!!!

  39. CuteWhiteBunny on December 26, 2008 at 3:53 pm

    congratulations!

    the best album on that list is in the top spot

  40. keineAhnung on December 26, 2008 at 3:40 pm

    congrats!!!๐Ÿ™‚ …I just love rtr!!๐Ÿ™‚

    but as much as I love rtr… I’m still pissed that you guys didn’t give “wdr rockpalast” the permission to air your rock am ring show back in 2007 (they’ve been allowed to air your rock am ring shows from 2001 and 2004, so why not 2007????? -.-)

  41. Hawaii_LP_fan on December 26, 2008 at 3:36 pm

    Congratulations on your well-deserved success! All your hard-work is acknowledged. May 2009 bring continued success! :o)

  42. Keres on December 26, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    Naturally Linkin Park has to hold down the top spot. Way to go!!!! I got my copy. I haven’t watched the DVD yet though, the DVD player’s broken. I was at Projekt Rev 04 and 08 so I know it’s going to kickass. Your live shows always do! Hands down….you guys have the best live shows ever!!!! Can’t wait for the new ablum, that’s going to kick some major ass too I’m sure.

  43. asaulp on December 26, 2008 at 3:19 pm

    Congratulations! (: You guys deserve it so much. Can’t wait for the expected 2009 album and the art collaboration you’re supposed to be doing with Mr. Hahn? + for you to finish your GE paintings to finally open GE (Dies) to the public. Thanks for another great year and hopefully, 2009 follows suit and/or surpasses every expectation Linkin Park has exceeded this year๐Ÿ™‚
    Most of this has been off-topic, so I will continue: I LOVE ‘LOCKJAW’.

  44. cuz on December 26, 2008 at 3:14 pm

    Great! Road To Revolution is amazing so it’s not surprising everybody gets it. Congrats๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Trenskinoda on December 26, 2008 at 2:15 pm

  47. I_B_Long on December 26, 2008 at 2:09 pm

    holy shit, chinese democracy is FINALLY out and yet GNR (<3) got their asses hanmded to them by you and your band Mike! sometimes when i see how dead the LPMB is, i tend to forget how many fans you guys have that have lives๐Ÿ˜‰ congrats! it IS a great CD/DVD/show. btw, got my copy the day it came out. my son (18 months) was almost as excited as i was when he saw/heard it!๐Ÿ™‚ along with “afterlife” by A7X, “BIO” is his favorite song (and lots more LP due to overexposure :))

  48. pepper on December 26, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    No suprises there, LP is still the best and continues to prove it! This makes me sooo freakin stoked!!!๐Ÿ˜„

  49. NoMoreSorrowGirl on December 26, 2008 at 1:59 pm

    Congratulations! I already watched some videos of the show in Youtube (I don’t want to watch it all now, it may lose part of the feeling of watch a new DvD, hah :P). The Little Things is my favorite, you singing in the final with Phi and Chaz, just amazing… I’ll have to wait almost one month to buy mine. Anyway, hope you had a great Christmas.๐Ÿ™‚

  56. Ana_ on December 26, 2008 at 1:13 pm

    Congrats!!๐Ÿ™‚ I was waiting to receive ‘Road To Revolution’ this Christmas and my wish was held.๐Ÿ˜€ Also received two dvd’s about the band. Can’t wait to see them all… These were my favourite gifts!๐Ÿ˜€ Kisses from Portugal**

  57. SimplyMode on December 26, 2008 at 1:08 pm

    OMG! It’s an insult to even have Britney around the words ‘Linkin Park’ lol

    Anyway…congrats you guys (: You deserve it, my copy of the DVD is in there somewhere

    I was there on the day, it was my first time ever seeing LP play which makes it that much better

    I’m actually gonna buy it again but with the MTM super fan edition..can’t wait :DDD
