With a career full of twists and turns, it's easy for a lot of Linkin Park's best songs to get forgotten. Have no fear though because we have put together a comprehensive list of all of the underappreciated gems from their discography.

PPR:KUT
An early sign that LP were something special was their desire for reinvention, shown off best on the 'Reanimation' album that followed 'Hybrid Theory'. This was a standout moment. 



IREDESCENT

Beautiful. Stirring. Spine-tingling. Just three words to descibe this slice of perfect balladry from 'A Thousand Suns'.



NO MORE SORROW - THIRD ENCORE SESSION

You know how piercing 'No More Sorrow' is on record? Well wait till you hear it sound at least 10x more frantic in this brilliant session.



WRETCHES AND KINGS

Hardhitting and harrowing, this grinding block of hip-hop glazed noise was a real statement of intent nestled within the folds of 'A Thousand Suns'.



HIGH VOLTAGE

With the likes of 'Papercut', and 'One Step Closer', the likes of 'Powercut' often get overlooked when it comes to 'Hybrid Theory'. These are bars that need to be heard. 



PTS. OF ATHRTY

Another twisted rework of a classic from 'Reanimation'. Let it consume you. 



DIRT OFF YOUR SHOULDER/LYING FROM YOU

This continues to be one of the most legendary collaborations of all time and what a way to kick it off!



NOBODY'S LISTENING

'Meteora' still sounds just as fresh now as when it was first released, none more than this angst filled jam. 



UNTIL IT BREAKS

'Living Things' was another feather in the hat of a band who weren't afraid to shake things up, and 'Until It Breaks' captured that essence perfectly. 



WITH>YOU

Seriously, how fucking great was 'Reanimation'?



CURE FOR THE ITCH

Need a reason why nu-metal was the most exciting genre in the world? Just listen to this euphoric slice of genre bending brilliance. 



ROBOT BOY

Atmospheric and bludgeoning in equal measure, 'Robot Boy' has it all. 



VICTIMIZED

One of the heaviest and most erratic songs that LP have ever penned. Bang that head. 



SORRY FOR NOW 

The pop sensabilites that leaked into the band's sound on 'One More Light' are at their peak right here. A club ready banger if we ever heard one. 



BIG PIMPIN'/PAPERCUT

Another nugget of genre blending genius from the best collab that has ever existed. 



VICTIMIZED - M SHINODA REMIX

How do you make Victimized even more discomforting that it already was? You get Mike Shinoda to be put a techno beat on it. 



IN BETWEEN

'Minutes To Midnight' was chock full of brilliantly affecting rock songs, this being one of the most stirring. 



WAR

The band took  it right back to the 80's with this chunk of hardcore punk influenced fury. 



SHARP EDGES

Simple but effective, a sentimental slice of acoustic wonderment that has taken on a whole new meaning since its release. 



What a band.
