I got Hybrid Theory for Christmas the year it first came out. I had heard the One Step Closer single and I asked for the cd for Christmas. I started only listening to the single and then I actually listened to the whole cd. I instantly heard that all their songs were good, not just the single like most cds that I bought. Since then, I've been a huge Linkin Park fan. I own posters, keychains, decals, window stickers, and all their cds. I can't wait for their new album.
