In honor of Linkin Park’s return to music with the band’s recently released project “Papercuts.” I went through Linkin Park’s greatest hits and picked my five favorite songs.

In honor of Linkin Park’s return to music with the band’s recently released project “Papercuts” — an album filled with their greatest hits and most-streamed songs from previous projects — here are my five favorite Linkin Park songs.

Before I get into the list, here are some honorable mentions: “Crawling,” “New Divide,” “Leave Out All the Rest,” “Lost,” “One Step Closer,” and “In the End.” It was really hard to leave “In the End” out of my list as it is the band’s most popular song and “Crawling,” which is a staple song for the band. In the end, I decided there were five better songs from the band’s illustrious discography.

  1. “One More Light”

“One More Light” debuted in 2017 on Linkin Park’s last album “One More Light.” The title track might be one of the most emotional songs I’ve ever heard from the band and listening back to it now almost seven years later, I still get emotional. A little over a month after the song was released, lead singer Chester Bennington tragically took his own life. Bennington was such a talented vocalist, and his voice has definitely had an impact on millions. The lyrics in the song hit true on so many levels, especially in retrospect of Chester’s passing. 

  1. “BURN IT DOWN”

“BURN IT DOWN” debuted in 2012 on the band’s fifth album “LIVING THINGS,” and the song is a great example of Linkin Park’s signature sound. There are great vocals from Bennington, shouted choruses, a toe-tapping beat, guitar play and a mix of rap as well. One thing I absolutely love about the band is its ability to take me back to when I was a kid, and the nostalgic feeling I get whenever their songs pop up on my playlist. “BURN IT DOWN” is a song you can definitely listen to in order to get hyped up; it immediately gets my blood pumping. This song is great for a gym playlist or if you just like the classic angry rock sound.

  1. “Numb”

“Numb” debuted back in 2003 on the band’s hit album “Meteora” The song is the standout track from the album and is one of the band’s most popular songs ever with over one billion streams. It’s hard to choose between putting either “Numb” or “Lost,” but one of them had to be on the list of the greatest songs from Linkin Park. I decided to go with “Numb” because it was released first and because I prefer its hard rock-centered style. The track is one of the more iconic songs the band has put out, but it is the song that best represents the band. Its classic hard rock style mixed with great vocals and lyrics make it a true representation of what Linkin Park has to offer. 

  1. “Bleed It Out”

“Bleed it Out” debuted in 2007 on my favorite album from the band, “Minutes to Midnight,” and the song is one of the more popular of the album. It’s also one of my favorite songs of all time in any genre. If it weren’t for the absolute abundance of quality music that this band has put out, “Bleed It Out” would be in my No. 1 spot. The song starts out with sick guitar chords and a toe-tapping beat, progressing with a rap from Mike Shinoda. The song has a bit of everything from rap to rock to insane screams, and I can’t help tapping my foot whenever I hear it. 

  1. “What I’ve Done”

“What I’ve Done” also debuted in 2007 on “Minutes to Midnight,” but it is most notably recognized as the outro song for the film “Transformers.” The hit of nostalgia I get whenever I hear this song is indescribable. I immediately get taken back to when I was a kid watching “Transformers” for the first time, watching the scene of Optimus Prime on a hill as the sun sets and the scene fades to the credits while the music comes on. The greatest outro song of all-time, “What I’ve Done” has always been one of the best songs from the band in my opinion. Its vocals, lyrics, vibe and great instrumentals make it one of the most recognizable and best songs Linkin Park has to offer.
