Making its Top 50 debut at #42 in January 2001, the album got as high as #8 (Jan. ’01) during its first year on the chart. A year later, it reached #2 in January 2002, later returning to that peak in July 2017 following the death of lead singer Chester Bennington.

Linkin Park have also topped the ARIA Albums Chart with Minutes To Midnight (#1 May ’07) and A Thousand Suns (#1 Sept. ’10).
