For me it was through a friend of mine who loved there songs, and i gradually listened to them, and loved them :D only been a fan since 2006 though, shame i didn't know of them before cos LP are amazing :D
listened to Somewhere I Belong and In The End one day, then started liking them then. Once I heard Meteora though, that changed everything - I LOVED THEM!!! I am admittedly not a huge fan of metal and rap, but when LP started making nu-metal THE genre, thats when my loyalties changed. By far the best band in the world, only thing now is to see them live :(
Heard the tune "in the end" once and was hooked on LP.....suited my mood precisely and it was the first music I really listened to and could relate to!!!! And I think every song and every album since then has been an absolute master piece.
I first heard them in 2006 I think it was, I heard In The End on the radio and when I heard that song I had to listen to more, I loved it,they were the first band that even resembled rock I listened to, I've never been the same,I changed completely when I heard that song for the first time.
I pretty much grew up listening to them as my parents (mainly my dad) use to play them alot. I became a big fan of In the end and Papercut. :) Then on the way home from a holiday in the car i played through every song on the albums Hybrid Theory and Meteora, loved each one. Ever since then they've been my number 1 band! :D
