The Six Degrees of Linkin Park
Blurring the lines between rap, rock, metal, and pop â€” and pushing the boundaries of each at the same time â€” Linkin Park is a band to be reckoned with. Their fifth studio album, LIVING THINGS, which comes out in June, 2012, is expected to further underscore their rock & roll dominance. According to Linkin Parks's frontman Mike Shinoda, LIVING THINGS is "a record about people. It's more about personal interactions." To celebrate the release, and expand on this theme, we measure the six degrees of Linkin Park, detailing the band's members, as well as their side projects, former bands, and relationship with other bands and artists.
