Linkin Park’s ‘Lost’ & A Recent History of Rediscovered Hits From Late Legends


This week’s Billboard Hot 100 has a new song from Linkin Park, “Lost,” which debuts at No. 38. This is the group’s first new top 40 single since 2012, when “Burn It Down” premiered and peaked at No. 30.

Chester Bennington, the band’s late leader, who passed away in 2017 at the age of 41, sings the song’s lead vocals.”Lost” will be featured on a 20th-anniversary deluxe reissue of the band’s 2003 album Meteora, due out on April 7. It was recorded during the sessions for that record and was stored away until its release this year on February 10.
