Let's talk about this historically: Though we have all been a fan of Linkin Park sometime in our lives, Asians are quite famous for liking Linkin Park because prior to the coming of Linkin Park, the closest hard rock of the sorts that Asians liked was Green Day or perhaps the Red Hot Chili Peppers on the rarest occasion.
Asians found themselves in a whole new world and were excited and most of all felt good about themselves about how non-Asian they felt they were acting.
Though the Asians were widely accepted by the white people, they weren't very accepting of each other, in the sense that Asians started insulting each other, calling each other poseurs (or other names of the sorts.) It became a big competition to see who were the biggest rock (Linkin Park) fans, which would go on for a years and years to come.
So now that we have some history, even though we touched the reasoning a bit, let's elaborate more why Asians like Linkin Park.
Linkin Park had very catchy music that was memorizable for everyone, therefore for Asians as well.
Linkin Park has two Asian (American) members, who happen to be good looking.
Asians go crazy just to see Asian member of a band.
Asian girls were quite in love with the two members, Mike Shinoda and DJ Hahn.
Soon, the Linkin Park Asian craze took the Asian (American) Nation by storm.
Asians changed styles of dress: purchasing converse tennis shoes, wearing band T-shirts, spike bracelets, got piercings, dyed their hair, wore eye liner etc.
, and got into other rock music (from Limp Bizkit, Staind, Incubus, Sytem of a Down, to New Found Glory Blink 182 etc) , but of course stuck to their new 'favorite' band, Linkin Park.
Hordes of Asians attended these rock concerts, and the white people were astonished to see how ethnic their concerts had grown into.
