  1. This is awesome, I love the idea of Mike checking this site.
  2. They don't have to drop In The End, it is one of their most popular songs, and I understand why Mike doesn't want to. But on their setlist right now, there are tons of songs that could drop, like Runaway, Wastelands, Remember the Name, Welcome, Points of Authority, and A Line in the Sand. None of these songs are LP singles, and could be swapped out for a song like High Voltage if they wanted to.
  3. The taper did do a really good job, but why was this posted in Newswire instead of Live Video Downloads? This isn't news at all, its live video?
  4. How do you know for sure that they haven't rehearsed APFMH?
  5. Good luck with that man! I don't live near any of his shows, so I'm really jealous of anyone who can make it. Have fun!
  6. Second hand smoke is no joke, I can see why people wouldn't want smoking backstage.
  7. I am excited about the idea of a new song, but at the same time don't want to get my hopes up.
  8. No, the survey is hosted by a third party site, so there is no way to log in, the results are completely anonymous.
  9. Signed, I'd love to see if we can get any response from this.
  10. They could have been some of the demos they were making for New Divide, since we know they made multiple demos and this post is from about half a year before it was released as a single.
  11. Some info from his reddit AMA: Lost in the Echo: I'm constantly writing--on my phone, laptop, in my studio. From hundreds of demos, a handful of songs stand out, and we flesh those out. They can start from anything--Lost In The Echo began with an iphone recording of a children's cat keyboard toy, which I put in iMaschine (an iPhone sampler app), then took to the studio. I might even sing something today, into my phone in the car, that becomes something. A.06: A.06 was a demo we tried to flesh out, but never really liked the longer version. Victimized / ALITS: Q: Since the release of Linkin Park's The Hunting Party, I've been wondering, was it intentional that the riffs to Victimized and A Line In The Sand sound similar? If so, why did you do it? A: Not intentional...but Victimized was a bit of a precursor to THP album in a way, so it makes sense. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees...
  12. Here's a summary of all the best questions / answers (related to LP) Q: Since the release of Linkin Park's The Hunting Party, I've been wondering, was it intentional that the riffs to Victimized and A Line In The Sand sound similar? If so, why did you do it? A: Not intentional...but Victimized was a bit of a precursor to THP album in a way, so it makes sense. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees... Q: Why did Linkin Park capitalize all the song titles in LIVING THINGS? A: Artistic license. Q: How did the mash up with Jay-Z come about? A: Jay Z and MTV came to us asking "if we'd jam together." Q: Since Chester broke his ankle, do you guys have any plans to return to Canada for the shows that were cancelled? Specifically Edmonton? A: I love Canada and can't wait to come back Q: would you ever go back to having red hair? A: not likely, I'm a grown ass man Q: I recently heard on the radio that you guys are "Free to be creative on your new album, as finances aren't hold you back". Can you elaborate on that? A: I have no idea what that means. I guess it's true, especially when compared to the first album. On our first album, we were struggling just to get a new guitar and a bass amp. Q: As a long time fan, I often get asked if I prefer “old Linkin Park” or “new Linkin Park”. I always respond by saying that nobody is the same person that they were ten years ago, and I love ALL Linkin Park. You yourself have acknowledged that you are not the same person who told us “to forfeit the game”. How do you feel about the change in your music style, and what do you have to say to people who don’t appreciate your evolution? A: Our career isn't linear. Some people think of albums as an "evolution" which can be true. But for us, each album is its own microcosm, it's own experiment. And we're just trying to make the best songs we can at that moment, in whatever style is most exciting to us at the time. Q: LP is kind of known for its large spectrum in music-style. Is there a change LP will make an album that is heavier than HT or meteora? A: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CB4QFjAAahUKEwi9g4HCiKTHAhXUNIgKHY-6AFo&url=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.spotify.com%2Falbum%2F3XB2yloP7l00tEUmaODtVi&ei=_YHLVf2QJtTpoASP9YLQBQ&usg=AFQjCNEnWKB43M35ogB6oKRRGLT21xpWnA&bvm=bv.99804247,d.cGU Q: 1) Why was the song A.06 (A-Six) excluded from Meteora album, and why was only the instrumental released? Can we expect A-Six with full lyrics to be included on some of the next LPUs? 2) Why were songs Part of Me and Carousel (from Hybrid Theory EP) never played live? A: A.06 was a demo we tried to flesh out, but never really liked the longer version. We played those songs a ton when the band name was "Hybrid Theory," and once we had a whole album to play, those kinda just went away. Q: Who were your mentors, how did you find them, and what big lessons did you take away from them? A: Rick Rubin is a genius. Q: If I recall correctly, you mentioned in an earlier interview that you guys (Linkin Park) don’t really jam when coming up with new music. How, then, do you start conceptualizing a new album, especially considering that every record (aside from Meteora, arguably) has been a significant evolution from the previous one? A: I'm constantly writing--on my phone, laptop, in my studio. From hundreds of demos, a handful of songs stand out, and we flesh those out. They can start from anything--Lost In The Echo began with an iphone recording of a children's cat keyboard toy, which I put in iMaschine (an iPhone sampler app), then took to the studio. I might even sing something today, into my phone in the car, that becomes something. Q: A Thousand Suns was a drastic step away from Hybrid Theory, Meteora, and Minutes to Midnight, and was therefore received with both praise and criticism. Similarly, Living Things and The Hunting Party both had their individual themes, causing many listeners to separate the “old” LP from the “new”. After reading all the reviews and fan opinions, how do you guys react to it? Do you change the way you approach the next album? How do you manage a possibly divided fan base and attempt to unify it again? A: Can't please 'em all! It's not our job to unify the fans. It's our job to make the best music we can, improve our craft, stay inspired. I will keep this updated
  13. Well that whole thing sounds mean, and quite frankly, I don't know why you'd bother asking. What's the best answer you could expect? Him saying Brad didn't feel like playing THP so they don't? Maybe they dropped Until It's Gone because there are many other, more popular singles they could be playing.
  14. Who said they will never do Easier to Run again? There exists a thread which is similar to what you want here: http://lplive.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=10125 That thread shows the songs that haven't been played live in the longest time.
  15. Okay yeah I can hear it better there, thanks
  16. I think I hear some during the chorus, but I could be wrong, my speakers aren't that great
  17. In 'Welcome' I can hear backing vocals, and I'm pretty sure it's not Mike, but no one else is credited for the song. Does anyone know who it is?
  18. I think I remember reading that he made it up as a joke 'stage name', but it caught on and just kinda stuck.

  20. Not really too late, there's still THP European tour, which will hopefully have a new setlist. Looking at the Beijing Setlist, here's what I'd like to see: Given Up -> No More Sorrow From the Inside -> Blackout Runaway/Wastelands -> Mark the Graves Ballad Medley -> album version of Iridescent What I've Done -> A Place For My Head
  21. It seems like Mike plays piano during live performances of Fallout / Darker Than Blood, and I was wondering if anyone knew what these notes were.
  22. According to this discussion, the two seem to be unrelated: http://www.lpassociation.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33946 The tracklisting of the Making of Minutes to Midnight seems to consider Grecian to be a Qwerty demo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Making_of_Minutes_to_Midnight
  23. I don't think they will ever make another Hybrid Theory or Meteora, but I would love more songs like LITE as well. I will be happy as long as their next album still sounds like Linkin Park. I don't want jazz, dubstep, or edm. I love just about all their songs, from Somewhere I Belong to The Catalyst to Rebellion, and I just want more songs similar to stuff they have already done. A few people have mentioned the next album being a combination of ATS and THP, which sounds like the best possible thing they could do, in my opinion.
