As previously reported by AP, Bennington recently told Music Week that fans should “move the fuck on” from the sound of Linkin Park's debut album, Hybrid Theory. He also attacked those decrying the band as sell-outs by stating, “then stab yourself in the face!” (via NME)

Now, both Bennington and LP co-vocalist Mike Shinoda are offering an olive branch to fans on Twitter (via Theprp.com)

Chester replied to a follower with appreciation for Hybrid Theory and its fans.

Shinoda made clear that “all fans of all [Linkin Park] albums” are welcome.
