  1. The three Minutes to Midnight songs released in 2012-2013+ with the wrong versions are apparently the versions that are still streaming on Apple Music, as confirmed by a few Twitter users this past week. These were originally released on HDTracks, then the "Mastered for iTunes" version of Minutes To Midnight in 2013, and in 2017 on the picture vinyl release of the album. The three songs affected are 'Shadow of the Day' (different strings and bass), 'No Roads Left' (added drum track and louder strings), and 'Across the Line' (no bass on the first verse). We have the three Alternate Versions on our LPLive Archive YouTube channel to listen to.
  2. 1. Lies Greed Misery 2. ALTNC Rick Rubin Reboot
  3. Wow this is great! This is one of the best covers Chester's ever done (already) and this version just sounds awesome. Saw a terrible comment on YouTube: "Hope linkin park learns how to honor Chester like you guys"
  4. This is easily one of Mike's best instrumental pieces. Really a big fan of the sound of it... would be quite a cool sound/genre for LP to try. Imagine vocals come in at 0:35.... it'd already be better than Lies Greed Misery lol
  5. And they said Fort Minor was a group. They really jumped through things and only measured success with TRL and the VMAs... quite odd.
  6. Interesting. Will watch that. Rick Rubin is who suggested it to the band when they were attending the Grammy's. He sent them that exact tracklisting and that is what they went with.
  7. Seems like this is the most logical step forward and something they'll get a lot of support with from their core fanbase as they already know Jon and Matt. Both are fantastic. Hell, bring them both in. Why not?
  8. The Chester era ended July 20, 2017. What do you want them to do, sit and not make a decision for 4 more years when they could hypothetically (if they are ready) release 2 great albums in that time and do several world tours....?
  9. Wasn't big on Happy Endings or the NFT stuff... hope to get an EP or album from Mike this year. Or something from LP that says "we are making music, see you soon"
  10. Based on the previews, it sounds like some overdubs. "Other fellas" on Remember the Name. Check Petrified especially. Same vocal takes for the verses, just mute the explicit words, and overdub a word every now and then on some of them.
  11. This could have been a lot worse, honestly. Not a huge fan of the song but at least they got together and performed it live. Doing it over Zoom or whatever could have happened virtually would have been much worse. This is what it is - it isn't terrible. Reminds me of ALTNC on Jimmy Kimmel with Aoki, Mike, and Chester.
  12. The production on this song by Alanis is really good. It's simple but it works quite well. Reminds me of OML (the song) with the effects used.
  13. CD 92.9 FM in Columbus, OH has posted a new interview with Mike on Instagram. "@m_shinoda joins us to chat about new music, fans around the world, twitch streams, and more in the Virtual Big Room!" Mike talks about making 'Happy Endings', scheduling some sessions with other artists, etc. "I'm working on a variety of different things. It ranges widely from little musical ideas I've got myself to working with other people. With things opening back up, I'm starting to schedule some sessions with other artists again. I haven't done that in over a year, like in person stuff I haven't really done." He also said he isn't working on a new album at this time.
  14. In celebration of 'Minutes to Midnight' turning 14, Frank Maddocks posted on Instagram, "May 14, 2007 - Linkin Park Minutes to Midnight Icon design. The band asked me develop a logo that was iconic, memorable and easy to render. A simplistic almost punk approach. Broken down to basic elements. A bit of the exploration and development shown here." He included a lengthy series of logos that he went through in presumably late 2006 or early 2007 before he reached the final, signature "circle LP logo" that we all know. In related news, Linkin Park has uploaded the 40 minute "Making of MTM" DVD on YouTube for the first time. Still no word on the infamous "Webster Hall" footage that was shown in theaters of the band making the album, though!
