Linkin Park‘s Hybrid Theory gets a shout-out in the new Netflix series Beef.

The show stars Steven Yeun and Ali Wong as two people embroiled in a road-rage incident. At one point, Yeun’s character, Danny, buys a plant from the store of Wong’s character, Amy, which he likens to “bringing Linkin Park a copy of Hybrid Theory or something.”

The LP Twitter account shared a screenshot of the scene, writing, “It’s the thought that counts, @steveyeun.”

While Hybrid Theory got the mention, Linkin Park’s been more focused on its follow-up, Meteora, these days. Last week, the band put out a reissue of the 2003 record in honor of its 20th anniversary. The expanded package includes a number of unreleased recordings from the Meteora era, such as the single “Lost,” featuring lead vocals by the late Chester Bennington.
