Linkin Park Announce Hybrid Theory: 20th Anniversary Edition And Stream Previously Unreleased Song, She Couldn’t

Listen to Linkin Park’s previously unreleased song She Couldn’t, taken from Hybrid Theory: 20th Anniversary Edition.

After unveiling a super-cool throwback website earlier in the week and teasing a Hybrid Theory secret project”, Linkin Park have now announced a huge 20th anniversary edition of their iconic debut album – as well as streaming the previously unreleased song She Couldn’t.

It’s incredible to think it’s been 20 years since Hybrid Theory was released,” say the band. All gratitude to our fans who made this epic journey we started 20 years ago possible. We dedicate our music to you. We rededicate our Hybrid Theory to you.”
