The band was known earlier as Xero at the start of their career. By adding Chester Bennington, after Mark Wakefield's departure, they became Hybrid Theory. Due to a legal challenge to Hybrid Theory, they changed the name of the band again to Linkin Park. The name Linkin Park comes from a small park named Lincoln Park (which was the band name but was changed immediately and wanted their own web domain) in Santa Monica, California, where Chester stayed after coming from Arizona. Due to the frequency of Lincoln Parks in the United States, the band at the start of its career would often be mistaken for a local band, eventually dubbing themselves "the nationwide local band."
