LINKIN PARK NOT BOTHERED BY MISSING NUMBER ONE ALBUM

Linkin Park's new album, The Hunting Party, debuted at Number Three on the Billboard album chart in June -- the first time since the band's 2000 debut disc, Hybrid Theory, that the group did not land at the top of the chart in its first week of sales. But in a recent conference call, frontman Mike Shinoda shrugged it off: "Some friends of mine in the U.S. said, 'Sorry that you guys didn't get to Number One on the chart.' And I said, you know, I feel like the Billboard chart is for one thing -- it's for first-week album sales, and this is not really a first-week album sales kind of album. It's a statement album. It's an album meant to be taken to the stage, and that's exactly what we're planning to do." .
