Linkin Park are coming up on the 20th anniversary of their “Hybrid Theory” album, and in honor, the band is gearing up to release a major reissue package.

“It’s incredible to think it’s been 20 years since Hybrid Theory was released,” Linkin Park said in a statement. “All gratitude to our fans who made this epic journey we started 20 years ago possible. We dedicate our music to you. We rededicate our Hybrid Theory to you.”

The set, out Oct. 9, features five CDs, three DVDs and three vinyl LPs. The CDs pack the original “Hybrid Theory” and the 2002 “Hybrid Theory” remix album “Reanimation,” as well as a bevy of goodies, such as demos, B-sides and songs that were previously only available via the Linkin Park Underground fan club.

Along with the announcement of the reissue, Linkin Park have also released a demo of the previously unreleased track “She Couldn’t,” which is available now through digital outlets. Listen to the full song below.

The DVDs in the reissue include never-before-released footage from live performances, backstage clips and interviews of Linkin Park during the band’s “Hybrid Theory” era. The LPs offer vinyl editions of “Hybrid Theory” and “Reanimation.” The “Hybrid Theory” EP also arrives in the package on vinyl for the first time.

Other memorabilia packaged with the reissue includes a tour laminate, a post of late frontman Chester Bennington, a special, illustrated book and more.

“Hybrid Theory” marked Linkin Park’s debut album and was released on Oct. 24, 2000.
