Linkin Park and Eminem walked away as proud MTV Europe Music Awards winners last night – nabbing the awards for Best Rock and Best Hip-Hop, respectively.

While both acts have earned massive status within their genres, Linkin Park has actually proved to be one of the most successful rock/hip-hop crossover acts of all time, taking in fans of both genres.

Last.fm Trends looks at their scrobbles.

It is testament to the pull and power of Linkin Park and Eminem that they both walked away with EMAs, despite their latest albums coming out in 2010.

In Linkin Park’s case, their latest album A Thousand Suns came out in September 2010 and has been scrobbled 9,879,958 times. An impressive number by anyone’s standards no doubt, yet it has some way to go to reach the epic scrobble counts of their first two albums – Hybrid Theory (33,382,771 scrobbles) and Meteora (34,910,559 scrobbles).

Eminem’s most recent effort, Recovery, came out slightly earlier in June 2010 and has easily worked its way to the top of his album list. Scrobbled 16,264,747 times, it effortlessly beats off earlier albums such as The Marshall Mathers LP – scrobbled 7,432,687 times.

With the absence of new music in 2011, both artists have seen a steady decline in their weekly scrobble counts:

Linkin Park is continually the most popular out of the two, however – most likely due to their strong crossover appeal.
