Once upon a time, maybe 15 years ago, Linkin Park was an aggressive-sounding band that blended heavy guitars with elements of hip hop—and they sold millions of albums doing that. They still record and tour, but much of their energies are now going into something else: venture capitalism in the world of tech. Earlier this year, they launched a company called Machine Shop Ventures with the goal of making serious coin off investments in tech companies. They currently have a position in Lyft, which is Uber’s main rival when it comes to ride-sharing. There’s Shyp, which is an on-demand app for shipping goods. And they’ve got a piece of a chain called Blue Bottle Coffee. This makes sense to me. Along with food, technology is just as rock’n’roll as, well, rock’n’roll.
