Linkin Park drummer Rob Bourden shared his thoughts on the pressure the band feels after their smash ‘Hybrid Theory’ debut. “When we went to write the record we didn’t look at the commercial success of the first one and say, ‘OK, that’s sold this many copies, now we have to top it or make a record that will sell more records’,” he explained to Launch.com. “We don’t make a record knowing if it’s going to sell a bunch of copies. We just made ‘Hybrid Theory’, we just made music that we really enjoy making and that we were good at making and it happened to do really well. So, when we went to do ‘Meteora’ we put the most pressure on ourselves to just make great music that we really appreciate and enjoy listening to, and so we went into the studio and did that.”
