Linkin Park are marking the 20th anniversary of Hybrid Theory with a deluxe box set featuring unreleased music, artwork, and other rarities.

Due out on October 9th through Warner Records, Hybrid Theory: 20th Anniversary Edition will be available in a variety of configurations, including as a Super Deluxe Box, a vinyl box, and a deluxe CD set.

The Super Deluxe Box consists of five CDs: the original Hybrid Theory; the accompanying remix album Reanimation; B-Side Rarities with 12 previously-released tracks from the album era; LPU Rarities with 18 tracks only circulated through the Linkin Park Underground (LPU) fan club, and Forgotten Demos with 12 unreleased tracks. Also included are three vinyl LPs featuring Hybrid Theory, Reanimation; and the Hybrid Theory EP, which marks its first-ever vinyl release.

Additionally, the Super Deluxe Box boasts three DVDs, including a direct replica of the band’s original Frat Party at the Pancake Festival documentary; its companion film The Sequel To The Worst Name We’ve Ever Come Up With; and live footage from 2001 concerts in San Francisco and Germany.

Rounding out the box set is the original stream team 2-track Cassette, plus an 80-page illustrated book with contributions from band members and unseen photographs as well as a replica tour laminate and oversized poster of Chester Bennington. Additionally, band members Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn and original Hybrid Theory art director and reissue art director Frank Maddocks supplied three lithographs of new art to the Super Deluxe Box. Pre-orders are now ongoing.

The Hybrid Theory vinyl box set includes the original album, Reanimation, and the B-Sides Rarities, while the deluxe CD collects the original album and B-Sides Rarities.
