2008 when Shadow of the Day was playing on the radio all the time, I loved the song and MTM was the first album I ever actually bought. I didn't became a hardcore fan until 2009 though.

Shortly after the video for In The End came out. My dads friend gave me a burned copy of HT but there were 2 missing tracks. I don't remember which they were but I think one was PMA...

2007, when I first heard What I've Done. Then I listened to MTM and I was so impressed. After that I bought Hybrid Theory and Meteora (no Reanimation btw., because I thought I had that, but that was a fake album :D). Jep, since then I'm a fan :)

Spring 2004 for me.

 

I heard their songs before that, but never liked them.

 

Then in 2004 I saw few music videos in school (including fan-made video of In The End (Final Fantasy 9/ATOMX)) and fell in love with them since that time.

I started listening to LP around 2007, i was hooked on Numb and ITE (Obvious right?). I would say i became a fan around 2008, when i bought MTM, and fell in love with that album. And they've been my favorite band ever since.

One Step Closer and Crawling are what got them radio play and some mainstream attention, but In The End was their biggest hit and drew in the most fans.

Thought so. In The End is their "signature" song. It's what cones to mind when people think of Linkin Park.

I probably have the strangest "how did you get into listening to LP" story ever. I was pregnant with my first child, in early 2001, and had mtv on, back when they actually still played music videos, and one step closer came on and my daughter started kicking like crazy. It, and she, both had my attention. I guess she liked it.

:3 my story it's quite similar, I started to listen them around Winter 2004, I saw an AMV (It was about Shaman king, with Somewhere I Belong), I got really caught by the song (I didn't listened much music back then), I downloaded both albums and enjoyed them a lot.

April of 2004 (I know the date becasue I found the files dates of ripping on some data CD few weeks ago. :D). A classmate lent me HT and LB's Chocholate Starfish albums on CDs and I ripped them into my PC and listened alot, mostly LP. Also I discovered the music video search in WMP and some fansites like linkinpark2k.com (now defunct but works in archive) and seen pics and videos of the band. I easily got liked their music.

2003, I saw Somewhere I belong on MTV. I liked the music, but became not a fan immediatly, it was Numb which put me in a few months later. The music by the band influences me a lot, because of this I'm still a fan today.
