Linkin Park are the latest music act to receive an honor on Hollywood’s RockWalk.

The rockers will leave their mark outside Los Angeles’ Guitar Center during an induction ceremony on June 17, following in the footsteps of stars including Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Aerosmith and KISS.

Frontman Chester Bennington says, “We’re honored to have our music recognized by our peers, but to be added to Guitar Center’s RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard, right where we started, is pretty surreal. We’re really grateful to be here alongside so many of the artists that inspired us.”

Dave Weiderman, chairman of RockWalk, brands the group “innovative and influential,” adding, “It is due time they put their hands in some cement.”
