Lincoln Park. I beg your pardon?

When this international band was first formed, it had (like every other brand that sought to establish itself) problems with what to call itself. That’s when Chester Bennington, who forms vocals for LP along with Mike Shinoda, suggested that they call themselves Lincoln Park because Bennington used to drive by a Lincoln Park on the way to the recording studio everyday.

This, he thought, would establish the band at the street level. Unfortunately for him, the domain was already taken and they couldn’t afford to buy it. So they decided to change the spelling and sure enough was available.

The rest is history…
