After two decades, Linkin Park’s debut LP has finally gone to No. 1 in Australia.
Hybrid Theory hits No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart for the week of Oct. 19, 2020, thanks to a 20th anniversary project released in various configurations, including a super deluxe box, along with new cuts, videos and other rarities.
It’s the first stint at the chart summit for Hybrid Theory, which has enjoyed a rollercoaster chart life. The recording reached as high as No. 8 in early 2001, then hit No. 2 a year later. In July 2017, following the death of lead singer Chester Bennington, the set returned to No. 2.
