Once Bennington joined the Xero line-up, the band renamed itself to Hybrid Theory and soon released this 6-track EP in 1999. Only 1000 copies were originally pressed and sent out to members of the Linkin Park Street Team to use for promotion. Many hardcore fans consider the release to be a masterpiece; the perfect combination of rock, hip-hop, and electronica. From its sharp lyrics to its unique instrumentation, the album still maintains an underground sound of a band that's just about to make a big splash in the music industry. We all know what happened next. Members from inaugural year of Linkin Park's fan club, the Linkin Park Underground, were given a chance-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase a reissue of the EP in 2001. The reissue included modified artwork and liner notes, with a letter from the band thanking the fan club's members. The only place to find either the original or the reissue nowadays is on online auction sites like eBay, but buyer beware; some try to pass off the more common reissue as the rare and highly sought original. Be on the lookout for a quote on the inside cover of the original, which reads "After eight months, she was sure of one thing: that the baby's future would be determined by the convergence of a divided past."
