What is Linkin Park cooking up in honor of the band’s upcoming 20th anniversary of Hybrid Theory? It appears to be something big.

The group has relaunched their website to gear up for the milestone, and if you head to, you’ll see an “old-school,” 2000s-style web browser with a “Hybrid Theory” background.

By clicking on the portion of the site that states “MailNet Client,” you’ll find some information from Linkin Park band members regarding a “secret project.”

“I’m starting to go through our old gear to see what I can dig up for the secret project we spoke about,” Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park states. “Hoping I can find some good stuff in there.”

“Hybrid Theory” was a landmark album for Linkin Park. The record was released on Oct. 24, 2000, and featured Linkin Park’s first big hits: “In the End,” “Crawling,” “One Step Closer” and “Papercut.”
