What would you say the odds were of a rock band going from opening act at a local club to having the biggest-selling album of 2001 to making the cover of Rolling Stone to being up for three Grammys--all in just over a year? Fifty thousand to one? Fifty million to one? Either way, you could quadruple the odds by adding one more hurdle: having the band upset favorites U2 in the rock album category and Alicia Keys as best new artist in Wednesday's Grammy ceremony.

The L.A.-based rock 'n' rap band, whose "Hybrid Theory" has sold more than 7.7 million copies since its release in 2000, is trailed in the top 10 by Celine Dion's "One Heart," which sold 432,000 copies in its first week.

When Linkin Park's rock-rap stars locked down Studio A at North Hollywood's NRG Recording Services for three months last year, they were looking for more than shelter from autograph hounds.
