Linkin Park’s ‘Hybrid Theory’ Rocks Album Sales Chart, John Lennon Debuts in Top 10

Written by on October 21, 2020

Linkin Park rocks Billboard’s Album Sales chart, as the band’s Hybrid Theory re-enters the tally at No. 3 with a 2,251% sales gain – having sold 17,000 copies in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 15, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. It was last on the list dated Aug. 15 and has not ranked this high since 2002, when it peaked at No. 2.

The surge in sales is owed to the album’s 20th anniversary deluxe reissue on Oct. 9, as the set was reissued in a variety of formats, many with bonus tracks. Hybrid Theory was initially released on Oct. 24, 2000.

Among the deluxe editions offered, there was a deluxe two-CD set, a $59.98 four-LP vinyl deluxe box set and a $199.98 super deluxe five-CD/three-DVD/four-disc vinyl LP box set. Hybrid Theory topped out at No. 2 on the weekly Album Sales chart for four nonconsecutive weeks in 2002. The set has sold 10.8 million copies in the U.S.
