6. Linkin Park
Just like most of the bands in this list, Linkin Park was founded by high school friends: Mike Shinoda, Rob Bourdon, and Brad Delson. The band later named themselves Linkin Park as an homage to Lincoln Park in Santa Monica. The band wanted to keep the name “Lincoln Park” but since they also needed an Internet domain, they used. The top photo is actually the first photo of the band ever taken.
