Updated September 17, 2020 3.0k votes 372 voters 24.9k views41 items

Looking for more bands like Linkin Park? The Agoura Hills-based rock band took the nu metal genre to its absolute peak with their album Hybrid Theory in 2000, and have been a massively sucessful act ever since. Unfortuantely the band's future is uncertain at the moment, after the unfortunate loss of their lead vocalist Chester Bennington in 2017. Let's rank the best bands similar to Linkin Park, with the help of your votes.

Many people compare Linkin park to Papa Roach, a hard rock band that also hails from California. Similarly to Linkin Park, Papa Roach was a staple of the nu metal genre in the early 2000s, with their song "Last Resort" launching them into the mainstream. Chester Bennington had a side project known as Dead by Sunrise, which is an obvious choice if you're looking for bands that sound like Linkin Park.  Other bands similar to Linkin Park include Limp Bizkit, Xero, and Breaking Benjamin, a post-grunge band known for songs like "So Cold" and "The Diary of Jane." 

These Linkin  Park band recommendations are ranked by your votes, so show some love to the bands you think other fans should check out. Feel free to downvote any bands as well if you feel they aren't similar enough to LP.
