Linkin Park are giving back to the legions of fans who made them insanely successful. For a limited time, fans can download a free copy of the band’s debut album, Hybrid Theory.

The release of Hybrid Theory rocketed Linkin Park from obscurity into headlining arenas basically overnight. The album has sold over 10 million copies in the U.S. and 27 million worldwide. To this day, Hybrid Theory remains the highest selling debut album of the 2000s and the highest selling rock album of the 21st century.

Linkin Park teamed up with Google Play to give away Hybrid Theory, an offer which will be available until March 18. In a statement, the band writes:

Our first album, ‘Hybrid Theory,’ was made with all the love, passion, and naïveté that an artist can give to their first recordings. We are humbled and grateful that it has been embraced so widely, and we still find it hard to believe it became the biggest selling rock album of the century. As a thank you to our fans, we’ve partnered with Google Play to give you ‘Hybrid Theory’ for free.

This offer is open to all fans in the U.S. To grab a high-quality download of Hybrid Theory, click here. Linkin Park is currently plotting a new album for 2016, so stay tuned as release details are announced.
