Los Angeles, CA (December 9, 2008) – More than four million online music fans have now added Linkin Park to their profiles via iLike, the dominant music application on Facebook® and other leading social platforms. Linkin Park is the first group to ever surpass the four million fan milestone on iLike, making them the most popular band on the leading social music discovery service or any online fan community.

“This is the largest number of fans that have ever gathered together in support of one artist on a single social platform and that blows us away,” says Linkin Park’s co-frontman Mike Shinoda. “The band is thrilled and we thank everyone out there that continues to support us and enjoy our music.”

"Surpassing an online fan community of four million is a significant accomplishment, even for a prodigious band, and it's a testament to Linkin Park's commitment to cultivating a connection with their fans," said Ali Partovi, CEO of iLike. "This is not only the largest fan base on iLike, it may also be the largest fan community that any artist has built anywhere on the Internet. We're delighted that iLike has been the channel Linkin Park used to achieve this astounding milestone."

Fans can join Linkin Park’s iLike fan community right now by going to: iLike | Linkin - free music, pictures, videos | Facebook. Fans who “iLike” Linkin Park will begin receiving notifications when the band posts new content for syndication across the Web by iLike. They will also be alerted when Linkin Park posts new concert dates and will have immediate access to exclusive video messages from the band and other compelling music and content. And the direct communication goes both ways: Fans can also post messages for the band.

Linkin Park recently released ROAD TO REVOLUTION—Live At Milton Keynes (Machine Shop Recordings/Warner Bros. Records), an action-packed CD/DVD combo featuring 18 of the group’s biggest hits recorded live in concert. The double-disc set captures the band’s June 29, 2008 show at the Milton Keynes National Bowl during the sold-out European leg of this past summer’s Projekt Revolution tour. Linkin Park’s Projekt Revolution has become one of the summer concert season’s annual heavyweights and the Milton Keynes gig—played to a packed house crowd of almost 50,000 people—was the biggest in the tour’s six-year history.

Packaged in recyclable eco-friendly materials, ROAD TO REVOLUTION—Live At Milton Keynes features hidden bonus tracks and an eye-popping multi-page booklet that includes exclusive, never-before-seen live photos. The CD/DVD set highlights a mix of new hits, including latest single “Leave Out All The Rest,” classic tracks such as “Breaking The Habit” and “Crawling” and two special performances—““Jigga What/Faint” and “Numb/Encore”—featuring Grammy winning rapper Jay-Z. In 2005, “Numb/Encore” was awarded a Grammy for “Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

Linkin Park spent the summer touring with Projekt Revolution in support of MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT, one of the highest-debuting and best-selling discs of 2007. In addition to its current radio hit “Leave Out All The Rest,” MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT spawned four other top ten singles ("Bleed It Out," "What I've Done," "Shadow of the Day," “Given Up”) and according to the IFPI (International Federation of the Phonographic Industry), earned Linkin Park the title of 2007’s best-selling rock band, with sales of more than 6 million units worldwide.

In other news, Linkin Park was recently honored with an American Music Award for “Favorite Artist
