Here, AJ from We’re Wolves takes us through his favourite/most inspirational Linkin Park songs in honour of the band’s cover of One Step Closer.
3. In The End
4. Given Up
This song just rules, plain and simple. Song has a chorus that instantly grabs you and won’t let go. Every vocalist I know at some point in time
5. Points of Authority
What can you really say about this one? The contrast between Mike and Chester really takes shape on this track and shows you what Linkin Park is really all about. Hard-hitting, groove, and raw angst. Mike Shinoda really shines on this song, this was the perfect example of what Linkin Park brought to the table. Hybrid Theory, in general, is untouchable, but this track has always stood out to me.
BONUS: One Step Closer
This was really the introduction to Linkin Park for a lot of us. This song seemed to come out of nowhere and we had never heard a voice like that before. The video had stunning visuals and an instant connection with anyone who came into its path. We chose to cover this song because it just felt right for us. We don’t always tend to agree on the same kinds of songs, but when we do it’s always unanimous. This song to us represented our journey into the music we create today. All hail Linkin Park.
