Mike Shinoda - What's In My Bag?

Before Mike Shinoda's in-store performance at Amoeba Hollywood, we sat down with the Linkin Park founding member to talk about some of his favorite records, including a bunch of independent DJ LPs he was excited to find at the store. "When we were getting started as a band, our DJ, Joe, and I used to go down to Melrose and find all these independent records," he told us waxing nostalgic, going on to explain how DJs like Q-bert and DJ Swamp pushed the envelope and inspired him and his band mate. Shinoda had a lot of insight into all of his record picks, making for a sincere and enlightening What's In My Bag?

Mike Shinoda co-founded Linkin Park in 1996, serving as the band's rhythm guitarist, main songwriter, keyboardist, producer, and lead vocalist. Together with guitarist Brad Delson, Shinoda engineered and Mike Shinoda - Post Traumatic - Amoeba Musicproduced the band's 1999 Hybrid Theory EP, a teaser of sorts for their groundbreaking full-length of the same name. Linkin Park's second LP, Meteora (2003), and third LP, Minutes to Midnight (2007) were also smash hits for the band, with both albums debuting at #1 on the Billboard Top 200. The band has steadily climbed over the course of its twenty-plus-year career, with A Thousand Suns (2010), Living Things (2012), The Hunting Party (2014), and One More Light (2017) all doing brisk business on the charts. Linkin Park has won two Grammy awards, for the track "Crawling" (Hybrid Theory) and "Numb/Encore," from their 2004 collaboration with Jay-Z, Collision Course.
