New Divide – Billboard

June 1, 2009

Word from LP’s management: “New Divide” is only the 3rd record in history to debut in the Top 10 on the American Billboard Hot 100 Chart & Modern Rock Chart simultaneously. The other two songs to achieve this were “What I’ve Done” & “Speed of Sound” (Coldplay).

    Nice.. Congratulations Linkin Park! A well deserved feat.

    ROFL!! linkinladie328, that site cracked me up. Did you see “The 25 Most Disturbing Sex Toys”? Not only did it add to my already disintegrating faith in humanity, it increased the pain in my impacted wisdom tooth..( me dying over the “baby Jesus butt plug”) Hahaha ow

  26. Keres on June 1, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    The fact that Linkin Park has two out of the three songs should tell you something πŸ™‚

  27. Kat on June 1, 2009 at 6:04 pm

    congrats! i actually cant believe that only 3 have made it. and i was reading an article on yahoo yesterday. LP is the second best selling rock act of the decade behind only the beatles. if thats not enough proof that you guys are the greatest band ever, i dont know what is.

  28. YourConscience on June 1, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Ooh-la-la. Congratulations, guys. =)

  29. nikkiann0100 on June 1, 2009 at 5:32 pm

    thats amazing! congrats.

  30. Philly_Willy on June 1, 2009 at 5:23 pm

    Can anyone say EPIC?

  31. Darkness_Embrace on June 1, 2009 at 4:30 pm

    I’m not surprised. Linkin Park is the most awesome band ever (cute members too… :D) and has the best songs! One thing I hate is that “Linkin” always has a little red line under it when I type it. I hate those lines! (but I’m getting off topic now…) But it’s a cool band name (creative… I live for creativity. Yay creativity!).

  32. 4n174 on June 1, 2009 at 4:29 pm

    Congratulations! You guys really deserve that honor, keep up the awesome work!!

  33. Ana_ on June 1, 2009 at 4:01 pm

    Amazing! Congratulations!! πŸ™‚ And keep up the good work! πŸ˜‰ Ana.

  34. Maaark on June 1, 2009 at 3:50 pm

    OMFG! That’s so cool. I’m so proud of you guys. And New Divide is AMAZING! Like I told you before, one of your best songs. Chester’s voice is even better than it used to be (which I thought was impossible).

    I’m so happy for you guys. Congratulations! Take care Dr. Shinoda.

  35. VVP on June 1, 2009 at 3:18 pm

    Good news=))
    Im glad to congratulate you guys!

  36. Lvix on June 1, 2009 at 3:17 pm

    Congratulations!! I don’t like Coldplay buy congrats for them to.

  37. Sharisse on June 1, 2009 at 2:24 pm

    Congratulations. You guys definitely deserve it with all of the hard work and effort you put into your music.

  38. spraypaintNinkpens on June 1, 2009 at 2:20 pm

    Cool tidbit. Oh Mike, when watching the lptv episode about whats to come for 2009, I thought for sure you were going to say I’m working on my 2nd installment of Fort Minor instead of Glorious Excess. Man that would have my year complete. Oh well, I’m hoping someday you’ll go back to FM.

  39. Eves09 on June 1, 2009 at 2:09 pm

    Coldplay and Linkin Park both ROCK!!!!!! 3 great songs πŸ™‚

  40. GiuliaLP on June 1, 2009 at 1:54 pm

    really are there only 3 songs to debut in the 10 ten on the American Billboard Hot 100 Chart & Modern Rock Chart simultaneously?? It’s hard to believe it o__O

    Yo!! New Divide rules!!
    Amazing What I’ve Done and Speed of Sound!!

  41. Alexandra1984 on June 1, 2009 at 1:52 pm
