Linkin Park will rock the stage at the American Music Awards next month, where they are up for an Alternative Rock Music award.
They will join pop acts including Taylor Swift and Nicki Minaj at the event on November 18, which is in its 40th year.
For the first time, the AMA have introduced an Electronic Dance Music category, possibly as a means to champion Skrillex in another corner or the contemporary market.
You can vote for Linkin Park or any other act at the AMA website.
In other recent Linkin Park news, they have become the first band to earn over 1 billion hits on YouTube - miles ahead of Red Hot Chili Peppers at around 330 million hits and Green Day at 250 million. It wasn't long ago that their breakthrough album "Hybrid Theory" hit the 10 million sales mark too.
