Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their breakthrough debut album, Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park have issued a previously unreleased song from the recording sessions for the album called "She Couldn't". Check out the official audio for "She Couldn't" below.

The special anniversary edition of the album will feature demos, B-sides, DVDs and never-before-seen footage of the band. The box comes paired with 3 vinyl LPs: Hybrid Theory, Reanimation, and the Hybrid Theory EP, the latter being a 6-track LP with etching on side 2. "We rededicate our Hybrid Theory to you", Linkin Park said in a statement. The site was updated daily to reveal new clues about the upcoming Hybrid Theory 20th Anniversary and culminated with the reveal of a video trailer on the site announcing the details of the release.

"The softly-sung 'you're not alone' refrain reminded me that, although we debuted with a song screaming 'shut up, ' what most fans came to find out was that empathy and community were just as integral a part of LP's DNA from the very beginning", Shinoda writes. "What would be a good celebration of Hybrid Theory?' and try our best to do a bunch of those ideas".

Due out October 9 and available for pre-order now, the 20th anniversary Hybrid Theory reissue will be made available in a variety of formats and bundles.
