Mr. Hahn constantly makes up things in conversations with fans who don't know much about LP (Linkin Park) that are completely untrue, so Brad says be careful with him, don't believe too much in what he says.

  • Joe is easily bored and has a "dry" sense of humor, so there's no need to get mad if he doesn't pay much attention to you (the fans). He doesn't do it in a bad way. (example: leaving the LPU Meet & Greet table to walk the line

autographing people's things to go fast.)

  • A Joe trait, he wears glasses similar to Chester's but different in style. His hair is naturally black, but he lightened it a bit. He has no tattoos or pins.
  • He created the concepts for the videos: One Step Closer, Crawling, In The End and did all the animation for Pts.Of.Athrty.
  • He has a split personality named Remy. Joe or "Remy" speaks at the beginning of Cure For The Itch.
  • Joe and Chester agree that the Foo Fighters song "Everlong" is the best song of all time.
  • Joe says that Robotech's Valkyrie Fighter is the cartoon that best represents him, because he's over the top and he's cool.
  • Joe only spent a year at the University after he began to move in the photos. He worked in the films "Sphere" and "Phantoms"
  • He has a music store called SURU.
