Fans “Thank You” Video

November 11, 2010

Big shout out to all the fans who attended The Summit today (and yesterday), and to the amazing people at LPAssociation who made this video possible.  We saw it, and we appreciate it!

From the LPA notes under the video:
Many of us can remember how we discovered Linkin Park. To many fans, the initial experience of listening to “Hybrid Theory” from start to finish would prove to be life altering, and would steer many lives in completely unexpected directions. “Hybrid Theory” can fondly be looked back upon as a soundtrack to many of our lives in the early twenty-first century. For some, listening to the album would bring them back from the brink of despair, while others would meet lifelong friends and companions through shared love of the same band and its music.

This video is our way of giving back to the band that has changed our lives in such a positive way, and who have given us the strength to make it through.

Created via the use of over 100 submissions sent over a two week period by fans from over 20 different countries, this video slide-show is a heartfelt look into the impact Linkin Park’s music has had on all of our lives.

On behalf of the entire Linkin Park fan community, LPAssociation.com, the LPU, the LPMB and the Linkin Park street team, we would like to express our deepest thanks and gratitude to the band for the life-changing music they have given us, and for their unwavering dedication to their fans.

Here’s to another 10 years.

Thanks Mike, Chester, Brad, Rob, Phoenix and Joe!

-LPA Staff (Derek, Joe, Keaton, Todd, Louis, Andrea, Mark and Luke)

    Oh wow. I kind of wish I’d seen this when it was first posted, but of course, I only check this like once every two months…I should fix that.

    Anyway, if there’s anything I can thank Linkin Park for, it’s the fact that I met the man I might marry someday through the LPU, and we would never have met if it weren’t for LP. And beyond that, I know the music has touched a lot of lives, including mine.

    Really awesome of you to share this and acknowledge the awesome people who made it. =) Love you guys.❤

  20. vnegrete on November 12, 2010 at 10:40 pm

    I know this is irrelevant to this post of yours but I have a question over the pre-sale tix and the VIP Concierge Service. If one has access to the pre-sale tix can they purchase more than one? Also, if I purchase the VIP Concierge Service will it include the concert tickets as well or is it a separate deal? Please anyone who knows the answer to any of these question feel free to answer them cuz I don’t know who to contact and ask!

  21. jozzie8 on November 12, 2010 at 6:27 pm

    That was a very touching video. Thank you for always making amazing music. LP are simply the best. Love you guys so much. BTW love the Burning In The Skies music in the background, it gave me chills.

  27. souneik on November 12, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    I think that if Linkin Park didn’t exist, the worst outcomes each of you can think up for yourselves would be very similar to our own.

  28. lyneblue on November 12, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    amazing !!! I wish I was in it but I didn’t know. thank you for everything and for being here in this unsane world

    Hey guys, first of all I wanna say congrats to the LPA for the great idea, I wish I was a part of it but I didn’t know.
    If I could say my own words, and it would be truly hard to me, they’d be: thank you for making me smile, thanks for helping me when I’m down, thanks for being there when I need you, thanks for your music, thanks for being such a really big part of me, thanks for the day I ”discovered” you, thanks for being with me everyday, thanks for the friends I made because of you, thanks for keeping in my mind that one day will be my day and I’m gonna met you guys, thanks for teaching me what’s an idol, thanks for existing in my life. Thanks for what you are. =)

  32. melmclaughlan on November 12, 2010 at 10:18 am

    Thanks for the informing us of the video Mike, I appreciate it. The whole video was beautiful, the music choice, how it made me teary eyed. I just want to say thank you to Linkin Park for always sticking with me, and connecting with me, and understanding me, because I feel the same about you. There’s not much I can say to express how emotional I could get here. I’d like to give a special thanks to you, Mike, because you are my absolute hero, inspiration, and I respect you in more ways than you could know. I’d rather Linkin Park outlived me, than the other way around. (‘:

  33. cincybmxlpfreak on November 12, 2010 at 9:16 am

    Wow. That was really cool. I wish I had heard about this sooner but…

    Thank you Linkin Park for being true to yourselves, always reaching a hand out to your fans and those in need, being positive role models, and inspiring fans like myself every day of the week. I aspire to be as great as each one of you are. Thanks again.🙂

  45. icecold25 on November 12, 2010 at 3:46 am

    Thank you for existing, Linkin Park. You guys save our lives every day and every moment and some of us don’t even realise.

  46. 3infinity on November 12, 2010 at 2:46 am

    You definetly changed my life!
    I almost caught up in the society of people who listen to really retarded music (Here’s an example of one of their favourite songs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vtv_HXuQB2E), anyways, most of those ended up in really crappy schools, some already started getting drunk (People 14-15 years old I’m talking about btw), and i ended up in the strongest school in the country, found great friends, and I love my life!
    Thank you Linkin Park.

  47. stasteff on November 12, 2010 at 2:43 am

    You deserve this video! It speaks for so many fans, even those that are not in the Video.
    Thank You!!

  48. anaaugustalp on November 12, 2010 at 1:33 am

    You save lives every day Mike! Thanks again! =)

  49. Rayan Lenox on November 12, 2010 at 1:20 am

    I’m so happy that LP and you personally liked it!!! I can’t stop watching it. No doubts you deserved it. LP saved and changed our lives!!! LPA made a great work by putting this video. As soon as I heard about submission, I sent my photo. And it’s there. But Thank You from me, from Ukraine, from fans all over the world once again. You know that we love LP)))

  50. bballpixie on November 12, 2010 at 12:58 am

    This made me cry because LP’s music helped me through the anger and shame of domestic violence. Then when I worked with behaviorally challenged kids, I used LP’s music to help them express their anger in a non violent way. So thank you and please don’t stop making music that makes a difference.

  51. adiek84 on November 12, 2010 at 12:25 am

    Wow, this is really touching. Even that stone in my chest softened a little! Props to LPAssociation and all the people who are part of it. I forgot about sending my pic, I’m a dumb b****.

  52. sinisternl on November 12, 2010 at 12:09 am

    Hey mike, can you show his to the rest of LP too?
    And maybe get this at the shows like the MFR video before the gig?
    Because our love for the band is unexplainable!

    I’m at 1:00, much love from holland! Max

  53. newsi1 on November 11, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    This is very touching. LP fans are the best!!! You are THE BEST!!!
    THANK YOU!

  54. darkwai on November 11, 2010 at 11:39 pm

    And that’s me up top, the very proud soon-to-be author with a goofy grin haha =] I also mention Linkin Park in my book acknowledgements, you guys get a good 40 or so words of me thanking you for the music and the inspiration. If everything goes to plan, I should have my book “The Underground” out on Australian shelves sometime next year. And before you ask, no, it is not about vampires. LOL =P

  70. djkytana on November 11, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    Because of this band,my self and 5 friends 10 years ago when they came out with their first album, it motivated us to start our own music group and we called it L.P.H.Q.C. and till this very day, we are still doing what we love and also because of that,I personally started my own Co-Ed Fraternity in NY (Sigma Delta Upsilon Fraternity, Inc.-Legally on 6/30/06)based on what i loved to do the most with my friends,Breakdancing, Stepping and most of All, Being a DJ. Everytime we make music in L.P.H.Q.C. or when I Step with my fraternity,I think of how Linkin Park Influenced us. Please continue to do what it is that you all do! Much love & Respect 2 all of you. Hope to see you one day!❤
