"Song as neat. I have a quote from mike He said Twenty twenty quote. I remember the moment. I wrote it. The song came very quickly. I remember sitting in the corner of the room to room in this little studio. We were using that. I think corn actually owned on the studio strangely and that whole chord progression of everything up to the second chorus everything up to the middle spot where everything changes it. All came together in almost one sitting. It's crazy when rex is. We were finishing the album. He was a proponent of putting the song. I on the album. We were like i get it. That's a huge statement because remember people were coming off a meteoric and they're like this is a band about one step closer in the end breaking the habit from the inside and whatever that's what this is about and then a long break in the first song and the album little things give you away people would have been like what the fucker you doing. Your idiots numb to collision course. Two little things growth and i. I'm glad they made the choice. They did Now there's a part of me that loves how audacious the idea of this isn't opener is but this is a perfect album closing song. Yeah okay if you're not missing if you're not changing any of the other structure of the album like say you get rid of wake our put wake and then little things and then you go into you end that follows stuff and then you go to the keys. Jingling of danta dad's given up. Like i don't know how well that would have. That would have been really jarring. I mean i can have see it. But i i think people would have been way more confused yes. I don't know where it's such a you sit through like what how. How long is a song again. Six odd minutes the first song it you sit through six minutes of of not does six minutes. It's almost six and a half minutes so again. There's there's a part of me that really loves the idea doing something that bizarre like. Hey we're just gonna open open up with a six minute epic closer. I mean i would definitely give them a. Who did that. Props like like but it would need to restructure the entire record. Yeah yeah yeah you would have to redo the entire But that would. That would be interesting but i. I really think it's perfect as an enter like it's it's it's it's well suited to purpose there. I don't know. Do you have anything else for little things. No no. it's it's great. It's incredibly incredibly. Well done so. This is where the album ends. But there is a b side and brandon. I both really enjoy it and we want to talk about it and not. Just say oh yeah. There's another sonko. Listen to it on your own time. it's no roads left. It's another mike shinoda solo thing. It's i it's a really fun so we we don't normally talk about bonus tracks yeah During the course of this and that that alone should be enough to tell you kind of how this one there is a there was an original version of this song. That had absolutely nothing in the in the beginning other than just a really simple repeating guitar. Riff and mike Leader releases of this record had this as a bonus track had electronic drum beats that comes in later on in the song and come in much earlier. It is less good that way. Okay is my feeling on it. But but you end up with this. Like very earnest pensive Vocal from mike as As brad puts puts out this very simple very repetitive. Riff and and all of that actually serves lyrical. Contact content very well and this is also just The d. best vocal performance. I have ever heard from mike. Yeah like he gets he gets belting late like like he's a completely different singer chester he was never going to sound screaming rally or anything like that but he works with what he's got so well in this song. It's such a good vocal performance. Yeah and they really wait for the build up you know yeah especially like the pre chorus as like in my fear and flaws like that really pushing it like i. It's all a. I almost pushing beyond his limits. But it's i it's you can tell that he's feeling what he's singing and dancing really sells it so it's such a good little song. The this was dug into much into by what the actual like machinations behind this band. Worden up till this point of should abandon. I listened to And then hearing. Mike be able to sing like that was something that made me like. Start to want digging in. Want to dig into the ban more and understand more with the process was yeah in this particular was what led to me understanding. How much of the band's sound is directly. Mike's fault But but. But i wouldn't have necessarily gone on the journey to try and figure out if it hadn't been for the song it was like man. What can't this guy do. Yes if you haven't heard it it's on it's on youtube. It's called no roads left ended. It kicks ass yeah. It's a ticket song i. There's probably other songs that i talked about complained about. That might be better. Might be better as besides in having this on the the album. But i don't know. I and i'm going to go ahead and say it. This is my favorite song on minutes to midnight. Okay and it's not on minutes all right but but it is my favorite song from these section. Well okay wait. I mean corey's pretty fun but it does a different yes you Courteous super super fun. I still i still prefer this. Sure and part of. That's because i'm like i'm to angsty angsty boy less so now j. teen but Get this this spoke to me a lot than and still still rings. Authentic an all all this time later. Yeah okay i- soapbox you have anything else to say. No no i. I really enjoy this one. I've settled the things already for the song so crying. Minced midnight as a whole. How do you feel feel about the album at the moment keeping in mind that i'm unfamiliar with a lot of the back. Half of their discography. This is my favorite linkin park record. eight shows the range They took risks. You see some of those risks off. You get to see some of them fail. It's a wonderful Lake.

"Out on this ringing. G chord and the track comes to a close then some playful percussion elements. Tsa up for the next track given up reds guitar steps in with a gentle over driven sound as he plays some power chords interspersed with some muted strums of the strings. Playing in a syncopated rhythm. This is a little bit different than the palm muting. I discussed in the hybrid theory episode. Palm muting is something to do with your right hand to stop the strings from vibrating as much but it still allows notes to sound out. It sounds like this. What brad is doing here is called hand muting where you rest the fingers of your left hand across the strings but without pushing them all the way to the fricks and this effectively keeps the string from producing any notes. So when you it with your right hand you get a progressive sound like this. Ps if anybody listening happens to be a left handed guitar player you with the right hand and with the left we still tend to refer to it as left hand muting. And that's a bit of an oversight in any case this chunky because of sound used in this amount is sort of a new element for the band and to give this track more raw gritty quality. This riff consists of the gourds e. Five f five with a turnaround on the cords be flat five and can at first glance. It looks like we're in a truly violent either locally scale but we'll just have to see about that the rest of the band joins in for the loud intro where everyone plays the same riff in unison. But dave let's bass notes ring out during the mute. Strums give the section a little more momentum and energetic verse strips things down to just the percussion and bass as chester rasps out the lyrics which contain the notes f sharp and be natural as opposed to natural. Nb flat on the bass guitar they get away with including these clashing notes in the usual way by not playing them at the same time. But what does this mean for. The key scale of the song well put simply melody is king and the notes. Chester things here are completely within the regular a minor scale. So i'd say the song is in the key of e minor this means the more locally and notes on the bass guitars are simply accidental. Within the key of e minor and they add the desired amount of spice the base also adds an.

"After two thousand. Three's meaty aura. Looking park toured for two years straight it. In the beginning of two thousand and four the band's label warner music was going through stock sale and lincoln. Park wanted to cut after all hybrid. Theory meteoric and the band's other projects have been huge hits and contributed to the labels value right. Well warner isn't in the business of just giving money away if they can help it and they said no. So lincoln park said okay. I guess you don't want a third album and refused to work on it and that was it. Both parties agreed to stand their ground. Not make truckloads of cash together. Nah i'm just kidding. Lincoln park was guaranteed. Moneymaker and warner was one of the largest and most powerful labels both sides had vested interest in making a deal by december of two thousand five. Everyone agreed to work together and split the future truckloads of cash in a way that everyone was happy with. I know that's an oversimplification of how contract negotiations work. But i didn't want to spend ten minutes going over all the boring details okay. Fine here's a quote from my not about happy. In twenty twenty. Mike said quote you know we had a fight with the label longtime ago because it was like they wanted to go public and make all this money and they weren't going to cut the artists in on it and at the same time they were spending all their time and energy doing that and we weren't convinced they were adapting to the changing musical landscape very well. We were already concerned that they weren't prepared. Till i keep up with what was going on in technology like music technology. And then they were doing this. Ipo and you notice. We're not complaining about the warner brothers ipo. Now because it's entirely different time and it's entirely different cast of characters. I'm not super deep in it. I do feel like the labels do what they need to do to be good partners and to make money. Some artists do really well in that equation and other artists. Don't get attention in that equation. It's always the artist who don't do well that complain. That's just life end quote despite of or because of linkin park's fame and success. Not everything was perfect for. The members drug use had been a part of chester bennington life at age eleven. At that time he began using cocaine smoking marijuana and using meth he attributed his actions with ongoing sexual abuse started when he was seven years old by an older male friend. The abuse continued until he was thirteen years. Old gesture said quote on eleven hits of acid a day dropped so much acid. I'm surprised i can still speak. Spoke a bunch of crack into a bit of math and just sit there and freak out then i'd smoke opium to come down. I weighed one hundred and ten pounds. My mom said i looked. I stepped out of al switch. So i use pau to get off drugs. Every time i get a craving at smoke pot and quote add onto that five years of recording and touring life and the rockstar. Lifestyle began to take its toll gesture said quote in two thousand six. I had a choice between stopping drinking or dying. I did some counseling with the guys and they really opened up and told me how they felt. I had no idea that. I'd been such a nightmare. I knew that i had a drinking problem. Drug problem and parts of my personal life or crazy. But i didn't realize how much of that was affecting the people around me until i got a good dose of. Here's what you're really like. It was a shock. They said that i was to chester. And then that fucking guy. I didn't want to be that guy and quote. These problems culminated with his.

"Tell me about what you're doing on twitch weird man. It's great i love it. When quarantine for star started everyday was the same day. I was in pajamas half the time. It was just like walking around. in sweats. like wasn't depressed but it was just like everything is the same so when i started streaming effectively because it created like structure so i stream i started then and i still do stream five days a week. A stream weekdays ten to noon or one ish and that was a nice like it was a nice way to be like. Oh i've got like you know. I've got my weekdays now i'm not streaming today. I know it's saturday. It's just a stupid thing. And i got to us. Really dig in with this space and get creative and get weird which is part of the most fun part of it is doing stuff you go. I didn't even know that was a weird idea. That was fun to do and all last year is getting. I was getting faster. And faster and faster in terms of making a track. And then i realized that the end of last year like how do i do. Now that i've done this for a while and starting to get a little bit burnt. It like i wanted to do something different with it and i decided early on my wouldn't do vocals because i think that would burn me out so it's just making instrumentals and then i realized i could since i live on twitch and there's anywhere between i don't know like a thousand and i think we peaked at like almost thirty thousand people watching at one time i wanted to do something to like. Enhance the channel and give back to the people that have been watching so i started taking fans submissions of vocalists and songs. 'cause i just realized looking instagram and looking at tiktok like there's so many good artists out there who have no following. They've got like you know. Six hundred people following them and they're actually very good and so. I just started taking submissions from those people. That i let i called. I mean you'll get this joke right away. I started calling the shots the a an army. So it's like it's like nine hundred people whose job it is to go find me the best stuff and they do they go they go and find the good stuff and they bring it to me. And they're like the more they say the more they shout like. Look at this one. Look at this one. I know it's pretty good so cool. Yeah and so. I've been i do two to three starting like a couple of weeks ago. I've been able to do two to three brand new songs all in a morning. Probably like a stream. And a half. I get a song done from scratch till i finished and i sent him. Something effectively like mixed and mastered so incredible that they can release so fun man. It's really really fun. And the fans. I mean you can imagine how excited they are right and some of the cases what i what. I haven't talked to the fans on the channel about actually on telling you about. This is that i will reach out to somebody and say. Hey that thing you posted on tiktok or instagram was really cool. Would you want me to produce it. And i say that. Because they've used the hashtag they've used shinoda produce me as the hashtag so they've they've raised their hand and said i want my to produce me. I hit them on the. Dmz say you want me to produce and they always say yes and then half the time they say. I haven't finished the song though. Like the thing i posted is verse and a chorus and i don't have a second verse. I don't have a bridge or any you know middle aged or whatever anything else and so. It's like okay. Well like take your time. Don't rush. Because i want you to be. I want you to submit something you love because like the whole ideas for you to get to more people than you've already got to so give me something great and when it's ready than send it to me and i and generally if it's if it's somebody in that scenario i find that they'll get back to me within like three or four days. And what are they usually get back to you with a more expanded same demo but with all the parts. Yeah it's usually like a we. Transfer link or something like that with multi tracked vocals and i always tell them like. I'll tell them like speed it up like to this bpm or whatever or i'll tell the make shirts and you're like very best range. It sounded low to me but up to you. And then i can and they can go crazy on the on the the Overdoses and harmonies and background book. Whatever else they wanna do they do but they do that. Before the trackers before there's a track is that correct. Yeah before there's a there's a trap so what you get is basically finished vocal stems for a song. Yeah i menu start from scratch. You take it as an acapella. Yeah and you build music to support whatever that is. Yeah do you remember when we were doing. A thousand suns together. Yup that at the end of that record before the first single the catalyst was the single on that record before the single came out so no fan had heard the song we released pieces of stems to that song and we told them take these pieces. Make a song out of them. We didn't give them enough to know what the song even was. We just take pieces and make a song out of it. And whoever's thing is the coolest to us we're gonna put you on our record on the album itself and we ended up putting them on. I think it was when When they come from me was the song we put them on but we chose it based on who is like as i recall beginning some of this wrong but as i recall it was like we gave them pieces to remix but they'd never heard the song they were remixing so i called it like the pre mix like they just they had to just assume the song and that's how i feel like there's something to that something about that the release this where it's like. I don't know what you're thinking. Your song is. But here's what i hear just based on that vocal on a grid socal. It's fun man. Superfund that thousand sons is is my favorite of the things we worked on together. That's my favorite. Just because i feel like it really is it. Felt like the beginning of something new and something new and really good. We didn't like the the the record before it minutes to midnight was the whole effort. The whole when are we first met. You asked the band. What are you guys envision doing with this album like y y are we talking like what do you wanna do and we all said like we want to. We wanted to redefine the identity. The banning the whole point was to make something that didn't sound like the stuff that people that are here because albums went in two so similar. And you're like great. That's exactly how i feel. And he's you said. I don't know if i would want to work with the band if you didn't feel that way so it's great. We're all on the same page and we just kind of hit it off from there

"Most common thing In in most of the western world for music and the trump denton cat canton tonton. Caca company used the used to hearing that and kind of like a do opera them and they're doing something completely different from that they're kind of taking the same vocabulary that they have syncopated stuff for four and dragging it into this this new context and it just feels so natural like like the one of the big things about six eight as a time signature is that has this sort of like flowing. Cyclical feel to it. That just really really works and for this to be the first thing. They put out in the time signature and for the work that damn well shows their musicianship but also like the the the fact that like they are pursuing new. Things not like. Hey let's rest on our laurels. This is another one where it's a sign of change to come. So i guess in general. My personal evelyn. I'm for so many things like other quotes and stuff that i feel like. I'm forgetting to kind of talk about it. I mean i. I really like the song. The video really cool. I don't have a lot to say about it a great song and then we move on but yeah yeah it's this is. This is another one of those choruses. That is just fantastically sticky as a melody. Original really really really. Catchy course for sure It up moment for sure all right now for something completely. Different track eleven. Nobody's listening a frigging love. This one this this. If it if it didn't crack my top three it was easily in the top five right like it's it's so fun it's got this. You know this exotic sound with a shock. Lachey like just beneath flute The beat is stinky as hell like. I don't know of a better way to describe it. It's like simple kind of familiar. Elements that have all been sort of twisted into a really tastic variety. It's like it's fun. It's almost playful. And like the the rhythm of the vogels almost this sort of nursery rhyme kind of thing like nanan an-an-and abba just moved into this nasty scale. It's as you can nursery rhyme from health. I absolutely love this one. Yeah i just want us great from and this is like the this is like the the opposite of what i love at the time when this first came out of. I want this singing and screaming. Not this weird japanese flute and wrapping based song. That's weird like. But i just i don't click for me and i've always loved the song it's one of those like it's similar to cure for the edge. Where like what is this. And i like it. And it's this. Hold that place for this album. So according to the album booklet. They say quote. One of the band's many goals in writing meteoric their sample sounds to the next level however in creating more interesting samples a new challenger rose to make a wide variety of sample based elements. Feel like they belonged together at first. The songs in japanese flu created a mood that was far different than any other song in which the band was working and may the track field too distant from the rest of the album. Mike and chester decided that the singing vocals would have to somehow connect to the song. To the rest of the recordings the following day gestures performance gave a seemingly incongruent song balance transforming it into an essential track on the album and quote. I love that because it fits and sort of bizarre. Well yeah this goes absolutely yeah and then from mike he says quote. Nobody's listening is more of a hip pop track beats and samples of the backbone of song and of and of course as always we make our own stuff. What i use the word sample. I don't mean that we're lifting somebody else's thing we always create our own thing and loop that because to me. That just feels more genuine. I've more pride part. That i wrote then in part that i lifted off somebody else's thing we make this interesting thing on japanese flute with different japanese sounds. It was actually keyboard and some other breath. Sounds that we used some piano some drum stuff but most of it was keyboard like a real deal hip hop track. The challenge was in making that fit the album with the sonics and the vocals as certain point. We realized that the song was like an island. It's detached from the mainland and the rest of the album. We realized that our bridge would be a little bit of guitar. Played a little differently. Bread does this muted guitar part in the chorus and chester night. Kind of play off each other's vocals. When we finished the vocals out that probably worked and quote. I think probably an understatement. The it grabs you. It absolutely grabs you. And i think the really cool part is his whole thing about sampling and creating the sound themselves and then sampling that and kind of the the joy of no. That's one hundred percent me even though it sounds sounds like i lifted it from something. I thought that was cool. In kind of very telling about mike's work ethic dead again also kind of points to the fact that he was kind of get one of the early adopters of the digital workflow for recording because the extent to which part of producing and arranging a record in the post year two thousand era is not just arranging your musical instruments. But it's also doing sound design. Sure that be a musical element but but but the textual contributions of that. And that's that's not necessarily the sort of thing that was really a commonplace part of the songwriting process before the digital era About as about as far as that got was was like trying to dial in particular sound on on a module since in the decades previous all. So i don't i don't know that it's necessarily Fair to call groundbreaking. What mike is doing necessarily because it's sort of an extrapolation of a process that that had been existing for a while but the fluency with which mike would go into this kind of production mindset like taking sound and wringing its neck until it was something different whether that be chopping up guitar part or the whole thing like synthesizing. A different sound is is really really. Cool as i've said before. Mike is sort of the backbone of the sound of this band everybody contributes. Yeah but the way that it all comes together is really kind of more down to mike's bazaar brain and i mean that the most positive way possible through the years i've really come to the revelation of mike. Shinoda is the the real creative genius behind like in park absolutely so you just like get ready for us to like reiterate that point for african every every episode more so in the future and really really in that final episode of the series. Like it's going to be really pounded in hard Let's move onto the next track number twelve session. So i mean th th this is the instrumental track. We had one on the last record here. Here it is again. This one's it's more thoughtful. More restrained It is a super super engaging arrangement especially instrumental song I kinda get like familiar vibes from lake. Some of some of the remix Manage nails releases charade. They did they put me in that same head space. It's weird because it is such a mellow and not treated like put the song down like it's very mellow and relaxed song and.

"Years. In the making. And i i love i. Love wouldn't wouldn't bands and artists are forthcoming about the process because that can be a very discouraging experience as a songwriter is is like i've i've got this this this little kernel of a kernel of an idea my brain that can't get out. I know this thing is good. Sometimes it really does. Just click one day right. And i i've been there. I don't think i've ever had anything. That's been six years in the making. But i've also never written breaking the habit so another one note So a lot of people assumed that This is like chester gesture. had an influence on. This is the addiction. Yeah that's up. Mike shinoda mike shinoda wrote the track and was inspired by his friends drug addiction and he's also said that breaking. The habit is the only song on the album that he wrote all the lyrics. So it's a hundred percent. Mike and mike sings none of them. Yeah and mike is not on it in vocally at all maybe some backing or doubling or something but it's chester front and center the bernie taupin of that. Situation is a weird reference for for episode. Compartment will will go as it. I didn't know that i actually didn't know that this wasn't chesterson. Struggle and him giving words to that I i've a quote from chester. So he stayed he stated many times over the years that breaking the habit is his favourite linkin park song and doesn't three d. joke saying quote. I'm almost pissed that he wrote it. Because i like it that much. If someone else had written it. I could play it all the time but if i do that people will think i'm a narcissistic punk listened to it. All and then. He says that it's the song that connects with him. The most on the emotional side that makes sense though with the teams that are talking to the kind of direct vulnerability to which it speaking to those themes. And how how much of that was apart of. Chester's get it. yeah. I know that. I think there's a span after the album would be out and they'd been on tour. They did not play. It live for a long time and then when they started playing it live like he would get visibly emotional while while singing it and so so yeah i think i think that is something really. Click with him on this one. So it's a very powerful song. I'm and in a. I guess not necessarily harpen the point but it's it is easily the most unique kind of off kilter sound for the record. Well i mean there's another one later well depends on what you're talking about but for me like this is the one that breaks out breaks out of the mold of what they've established as their sound up to this point. Okay the hardest. Okay is funny to think of this as being a unique sound for them because we're so very used to the song because we've heard at eight million times but it's that it's that It's almost a punk beat. It's really not a lot different than the drumbeat from like dance. Dance by fall out boy but what they then do with. That is really really unique. And you don't have you. Don't have brad laying down any big nasty power gourds guitar like it's it's very unique song. I think there's something about cheesier but like breaking the habit of their sound. With this song. I i really like it. I am sad that it got radio played into oblivion. It's a good song. That was a very very good song. Yes okay cool. I'm done so let's move on to move on to the next one track ten the fourth single from the inside so the the thing that i love most about. This is the first time that they use a time in jordan four four. I definitely would over that. But they're six eight says it's this sort of like swung time and like it really is a new feeling. It says it's got this really like soaring flying sort of quality especially in the choruses And then when they go into the bridge they absolutely milk that new rhythm to give you a different breakdown rhythm to go gun gun gun which is like it's almost similar to the rhythm from like the terminator theme song and like the just just the piano in the samples and this winter absolutely gorgeous it in addition to how like punchy. The song is I i like a lot. I have the actually have a whole Few things that talk about the like all of them talking about this the time signature so thinking like the band there bryant so the meteoric booklet says quote phoenix came up with the original guitar idea for the song while recording with mike in the back of the tour bus in summer. Two thousand two the song. Six eight time signature created an opportunity to juxtapose pose the seemingly disparate rhythms most apparent in the verses when it came time to complete the song the band run into a challenge. Chester got sick unable to sing during his last week of the scheduled recording chester was forced to finish his new parts in new york. At during the start of the mixing process. Down to the wire. The band was left with little margin for error. Fortunately this song and somewhere. I belong written and recorded successfully in the third for of the soundtrack studios new york city. And so i think this points to the growth of the band were like. Hey let's try something new musically because four four is kind of the default for for like most western music. And i've definitely. I talked about that on the last episode. Six eight is sort of like the next.

"That they do that. Would you like to hear what they say. On the liner notes for the book the book quoted in my ears. Okay quote mike and joe. Studio equipment was installed in the back of a tour bus during the summer of two thousand and one and they put it to good use. Mike came up with the interest sample chorus music for the song during an overnight. Bus Drive during uh fest trying to record. Guitar and moving bus can be very sloppy but eight months later in the studio at energy everything got cleaned up replayed and put together right. And i don't really have a lot to to add to any what you've talked about this. This one is fun. The first two are really solid rock songs. But this is one of the first ones where i find myself kind of like uncontrollably bobbing along to the beat just really balancing my head i. This is always been probably one of my top three on the record. I have a quote from action. I says quote. That song would be impossible for any cover bands to play chester. Just sings too damned hard. I think he did some great stuff on that song. We're really proud of that song. It's another song with a great keyboard thing that we made kind of a sample sound at the beginning. It's gonna be really fun to play the song live. I could say the same thing for the song comes after that lying from you is about pushing someone away. The title means making lies and lies to make another person angry so that they they don't wanna be around you which is something that some people do subconsciously in relationships That's not part of what the song is about. But i know that in a broader sense when people start feeling negative feelings towards someone else just naturally they start doing things that make the person not be a not want to be around them. It's a subliminal reaction that works with friends that works with relationships. Either way people do that. And i think one of the things that's always been good about lincoln. Park lyrically is is the willingness to sort of like self examined always tend to enjoy lyrics. That are more introspective or sort of sort of thoughtful vulnerable And so in spite of them having this really aggressive sound isn't that that's a really good example of like. Hey we're gonna write about these these sort of lake berry honest human human struggles. So i appreciate it for my will take. It's a great example of lincoln park during this rap rock era the styles really mesh with each other on this one. Yeah i i think one of the things on this one is how that That intro riff intro sample kind of weaves. Its way back in and out of the song over the course of the road. Yeah do you want to move on to track number five. Hit the floor. This one was probably my favorite as a young is probably still three. The scales funky has got this kinda like just bizarre feel. The hip hop groove is like super strong right. Did beat really does have that. He about hip hop energy. And the get they they play with that boundary hard but but like the beat itself is is a little bit more can measured slow like eighty bpm kind of standard hip hop thing. And they're like okay. How how can we then dressed it up in several ways. And i like that all right for the album booklet. They said quote the band wanted to make a heavy song with hip hop bounce. And this is what came out. Mike and chester tried numerous singing style courses but when chester brought in brought the screaming hook into the studio everyone knew going to work. The hardest part in crafting. The song was in the minor details tightening the lyrics and capturing performances that took days to finish unquote well and it's interesting because like the structure of it is the very like pass the mic standard hip hop lake old school hip hop kinda kind of deal But the but then they find the various and fund ways to like kind of fucked up that expectation. I really love that that back and forth in any time to do it. Like the the a couple of times in the previous albums usually in pre courses rather than choruses whereas the a trade off between mike wrapping and it and chester screaming but like they count here the the kind of like remixed Out tro definitely reminded be appointed authority. But there were like hey like how do we make that. Even more short and sweet and they nailed it here at the more concise. It's more tight more. It's more pop. But not in when i say off i'm not talking about like What's gone soft lake gic. Just it's designed more to be like and we're gonna come in. We're going to punch you in the face and then we're right at spa stick with you is is is so i have a quote from iraq and he says quote hit. The floor is about people who look down on other people. It's basically about people stepping on other people to get to the top and acting like they're invincible when everybody knows you can't be that person forever. You can't step on other people to get wherever you want to go. It just ends up coming back to buy you and even in that song. There's definitely more to it than that. And this is an interesting one for me because like you know what goes around comes back around is like a did a fairly universal theme right like the not necessarily new idea but there's a certain attitude with which that kind of stuff is talked about in sort of like sound like a weird thing to say but like the sort of early hip hop cannon right right like like like the sort of body of work that makes up like hip hop from like alanis around eighty five two thousand one tip on the hip hop started taking on a very particular kind of energy. And here they are kind of leveraging that but then sort of turned it on its ear the attitude is just just a little bit different than what you normally hear that that i think is again one of the things. That's very interesting. Is the way that they take these existing elements in just sort of just tweak like three percent and i it's it's pretty slick. Let's move on to track six easier to run so for me. And i don't mean this to be reductionist about the song i really like it. But for me this one exists in the theoretical space between pushing me. Away and crawling from the previous. It's sort of the average of those songs for me and that's actually a new sound. Like where do we land between them. And i enjoy it. It's not not that. Catchy one on the record for sure but he still enjoyable. It's probably not a ballot. But it's kind of balaji in terms of lincoln park's songs like it's it's it's it's you. Call a deep cut. Yeah sure probably like it's not. It's not a single in your face kind of thing. Does this as a deep cut. Do some deep cuts from hybrid theory. I think the quality of this one from both songwriting production. All of it is is a lot stronger from this one not. Yeah it's still not skip and there's not necessarily skip anything on hybrid theory but there's a couple of tracks later on that like if i'm rushed for time maybe i won't you know sure you listen to the first half and go. Yeah i remember the song and then move on. Yeah this this one for me is not that The bridge the bridge on this one is is pretty epic. It's got the right stuff well The media album booklet says quote. Rob's playing on the song is extraordinary. He found a way to make this complex. Drum patterns sound easy and tasteful plus he recorded only in a few takes on another note. The verse lyrics emerged from a free form riding pro exercise performed by chester. He wrote them to no music. No beat mike and john liked them a lot and the three guys decided.

"During the tour to support hybrid theory two thousand one and producing the remix album. Reanimation linkin park began. Creating demos for the band's sophomore album on hybrid theory warner brothers. Records tried to meddle with production and tried to analyst. Mike shinoda from the band. Completely post hybrid theory and now vindicated. Shinoda would be more involved as co producer with don gilmore for the second album phase. One of pre-production involved making if ideas while on the road for promoting hybrid theory for the second phase of reproduction during ended the members of the band paired off to work on songs with shinoda over each pair ban regrouped for the actual recording in mid two thousand. Two and the album was complete by the end of the year guitarist. Brad delson said quote. We really learned the meaning of pressure. But it wasn't pressure from outside people. It was artistic pressure from ourselves. You can't control the commercial success of a record so there's no point in even investing energy in that but the quality of your record is entirely up to you and you can't blame anyone else if you write crappy songs before we did media. I listened to hybrid theory. And reanimation. And i was like dude. I'm really proud of these records. I don't remember how we did it. And i don't know how going to do it again. We're kind of screwed then. Fortunately we're able to invest ourselves fully in the process for eighteen months and that helped us make a really great record unquote chester. Bennington said of the band's mindset the time quote we knew what we wanted and we knew how to execute it to a certain degree however we were also just going for it. We didn't really care what anybody else was doing. We also didn't care whether or not the songs fit together stylistically as a whole or collection of songs. Then we'd just scream over it and the next song would be a mid tempo ballad and we just sing the way it needed to be saying. We were testing. We were students in college. We were in the lab and we happen to stumble across something that everyone liked and it worked. I think media was an extension of that when asked about the lyrical content of the album. Bennington said quote. We don't talk about situations. We talked about the emotions behind the situations. Mike and i are two different people so we can't sing about the same things but we know about frustration and anger and loneliness and love and happiness and we can relate on that level unquote shinoda explained quote. What we really wanted to do was to push ourselves to push each other to find really new ways to be creative. We wanted to sample. That was in each song to be something that might perk your ear. Something you might not have ever heard before unquote for the name of the album. The band chose meteoric means lofty or elevated it shares. Its name with a rock formation in central greece. This is the home of one of the largest complexes of eastern orthodox monasteries built on natural pillars. And he'll like around boulders that dominate the local area the album meteoric was promoted with five singles and three of them charting with the ria faint.

Romanek along with three feature films. Romanek has directed many music videos for artists including johnny cash. Nine inch nails red hot chili peppers. Madonna michael and janet jackson fiona apple and taylor swift while popular fans of hybrid theory. Many critics didn't see much of a progression from the first album. We can park. Didn't consider themselves new metal. But that was the genre that the music world had pigeonholed them into meteorology. Release was one of the markers of the end of that sub genre by two thousand.

Like more introspective honest rap artists. That are kind of talking about you. Know the the pop lifestyle. Earn the glamour and the clubs and more about just. Hey this is my experience as a person. And i'm like oh okay well. This is really cool. Listen to now. Now we're talking about something relatable and so you know that. That was the thing as i for the longest time thought that i disliked music and as it turns out. H don't like mainstream. And i don't think i ever would have been able to have that realization without without lincoln. So thanks mike. Thanks chester. thanks. Brad thanks rob. Thanks joe and i'm missing. One thinks phoenix every high. Let's let's move on to track number three with you was probably my least favorite When i was a kid probably still near the bottom of the back for me. But it's i enjoy more now. I'm able to enjoy funkier vibe. They got going on in a way. That i couldn't when i was younger. Yeah i think. I think i might agree with you. On lily's favourite this or maybe forgotten. You're on the album. Oh yeah it does kind of blend in with a lot of the other songs on this album but You know i. There's not a song that i hate on this album so you just have to used to me saying i enjoy this this song but i do have a quotes so mike shinoda says About how it came together. He said quote. We met the dust brothers when we were looking for somebody to produce the album and we decided that after the meeting we would try a song together. They give us a track drum loops and different modes sound sin. Sounds we ended up. Mostly centering on those synth. Sounds and coupling them with guitar and live drum unquote so this is an interesting one because it does feel a little bit different from a lot of the other tracks on the record so it makes sense that there was some external influence What i will say is that as much as this is not one of my favourite tracks on the record. It's one of the most impressive vocal takes from chester on the record. Okay on one step closer. You could hear him screaming. But on this you get to hear him just absolutely nailing some high takes and you know this was certainly not before the days of auto tune but you can hear throughout this record that they. They didn't auto tune his vocals times where there are imperfections and whatnot And this is one of those times where you can hear a little bit of that natural the degrade in the pitch imperfection. There's this sort of dividing line between good singers in great singers where a great singer can be a little bit out of tune and you still don't mind because the tone is that could another example on a completely different spectrum is the song shaken by florence and the machine where she she You know the what the hell motto let it happen to me that the holy turn around at the end of the bridge the climatic moment of the song. She's like a quarter tone flat on on on the word Hell ostriches says what the hell and and you you don't mind and that that that's one of those things i it's less less prevalent here than it is in some of the later tracks but like he's got that you know visceral sound That that is actually aided and abetted by the fact that it has not been overly produced the this. This is really good vocal. Take for him. As much as i don't i i'm not in love with the song. He sings his ass off on. This one There are some stuff towards the end. Where it's there's a lot of record scratching kinda i. It was cool back in the day. I that's maybe one of the things that might be a little bit dated twenty. It's aged vogue than it's it's a song of its time yeah Overall pretty twin move onto points of authority yes So this for me is One of the ones that kind of encapsulates their sound best. It has the electronic hip hop and rock elements all in like pretty equal balance. Yeah So like if you want to explain to somebody what new metal sounds like. I guess for for anybody who's on a uninitiated that is spelled the end you hyphen metal. Because the two thousands of had weird names. But yeah did did this for me is is is one of the ones that kind of encapsulates that sound and i know that's not necessarily what they were aiming for right. They weren't like yeah. Let's start a new metal band. They were just like hey. Let's throw these things together but this as time has gone on for me is probably the one that did everything coalesced correctly. So if somebody asked you what is. What's this jonah usually. Okay it's this interest breath. So i have a quote from rob the drummer and he explained to how the song kind of the riff of the song came together. He says brad wrote this riff Then went home. Mike decided to cut up the riff into different pieces. Rearrange them on the computer And mike re basically rewrote the the rift so much that brad had to relearn his own guitar part from the computer and so Robert sang that ends with saying that mike is a genius Very trent redner talented. That's a it's a really interesting thing to bring up just because this record came out not too long after the advent of digital recording. Which you you can break up recording ghetto techniques into Linear editing and non linear editing. linear is what we did when we had tape right. We gordy physical media. You couldn't necessarily spliced f up the same way with the same. Same level of control and non linear. Editing is what everything you've heard in the last twenty five years has been You know with a few exceptions bands. Still record to tape on occasion foo fighters. Wasting light was recorded entirely detect and even then they they go in afterwards. and they're. They're not editing tape.

"That's a paper. cut everything else. The the the thing that was interesting about this one is that there's very little Singing from from from chester on this one it's mostly all of them doing spoken or screamed word from which is the. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that but you only get these little tastes of chester singing. I think he only sings the beneath beneath my skin. Line that i think those are the only actual pitched notes in the vocal track in that. That gives you just a teaser. For some of the stuff he's going to do later in the record but doesn't give it all away which is cool their holdings of the reserve in the opening which is yeah. Yeah good move all right. Let's move onto one step. Closer o'brien do you remember one step closer a kind of a single for a little bit. Yeah scratching my head yes. Yes yes Yeah this is. I feel like this is the peak lincoln park. It's just a lot of people people who don't know lincoln park this song. Yes yeah i think i in some ways i think park has always been kind of chasing you know. They've always they've come out. They've always been a big bands after this album. Yeah but i mean this was definitely the biggest. One of the biggest hits they've ever had And it was their first single. So it's like how do you follow up that kind of thing but Yeah no this is the big one if you've thought that chester was lacking in paper cut This is where chester gets to be. Come to the front. Yeah the the. The balance between between mike and chester is slightly. Mike heavy on paper. Cut right you know like it's slightly towards mike on this one. it's very much towards chester. I mike mike does some doubles. It's about yeah he's yeah that's basically it for mike But now this is This is a fun. I've a quote here from from chester from two thousand eleven and kind of how they were had to fight for the song. He says quote when they're quote when we were recording it producer. Don gilmore was really drilling me and mike about the lyrics and it really gotten to the point where we written some songs thirty times. I remember walking into the control. Room handing don lyrics and he grabbed them. Pass them in front of his face without even looking and handed them back to me and told me to go do it again. I've fucking loss of my mind thinking. This guy's a fucking maniac but that kind of inspired the lyrics. I cannot take this anymore. Saying everything i've said before. All these words make no sense and the chorus everything you say to me takes one step closer to the edge. All of that came from that frustration. So i guess in the end inspired me the way he wanted to so i. I have no idea. Because i just assumed that this was about dysfunctional romantic relationship. And maybe and maybe. That's where the the the started but then like the frustration from the performance was drawn from right it again. Yeah well gosh. I mean i it really is. It's it's a song an anthem for a Pretty broad age range of because realistically if you were born between the years of like i'll say nineteen eighty three and one thousand nine hundred ninety eight and you don't shout along when it gets to the shut up when i'm talking to you. Yeah i mean then you're lying you're just you're li- when things. I found a quote from talking about how his mom thought that the bridge was funny because shut up in there when he was was growing up was was considered to be a bad word when he was a kid so is his mom finds it funny then he gets to say the bad word. I know you big rockstar. Shake she takes show up on a microphone. Funny yeah i mean but this one just it it. It rocks hard. It's yeah this is the end for. I think most people who got into the band during this time. This is lincoln park. This is your example of. Why don't linkin park song is in realistically. I think the whole the whole nu metal genre which i mean definitely like predated at park. They didn't invent it but wouldn't have gotten the same amount of mainstream crossover that had had without just this single track. I i think that this this was sort of the The the introduction to a lot of the mainstream world to this sort of sound that the this this intermingling and You know there's less of the hip hop influence less of the record scratch but there's almost none of the hip hop style in this but there is i believe some record scratch for for emphasis but i feel like this was a good way you know. Is that whole deal when you put a put a frog in a room temperature pot of water and then you know. Turn up the eat. This i think was instrumental in getting a lot of people who were really into rock also to interrupt just because this song was very light on any of that but then once they checked out the rest of the band it was sort of a gateway to enjoy rap more. Yeah definitely so. This song was building bridges. And just the banner for an entire genre honestly. Yeah the whole genre has a debt of gratitude. Debate this track. Yeah i mean. I completely identify with what you were saying about the whole rap thing i growing up i would. I would go and pilfer. My dad's cds a few fighters in in whatever rock stuff i could find and so for me if you'd asked me back in early two thousand What i thought about certain genres like country or rap. I hate rap because i never got into anything And this really kind of linkin park really was opening the door to you know. Maybe you can just say you. You're not a big fan of rap and kind of ear open to certain certain aspects of that genre and there. It's not all bad bad. It's there's there's there depends on certain people that you might actually like. Tha young tyler yet. Don't be so judgmental. And i think that was a very interesting thing because this this was put together in a package. That was More digestible for younger mailer. But i think there's there's a handful of music that i've come to really enjoy in adulthood that i would never have given the time of day if not for this. I think as i say the same prejudice. You were talking about wraps awful but like no no no i. It's i realized much more now as an adult that. There's a lot of mainstream rap that i dislike just as just as much as i dislike mainstream pop..

The Secrets to Bootstrapping to $5M ARR in Less than a Year with Martha Bitar

"So. Let's talk about how we bootstrapped flow desk from zero to five million era in less than a year, and it probably makes sense to share what we do. So flow desk is an email marketing tool that makes at ridiculously easy for you to design emails people love to get. And here's a founding team. So Rebecca who heads our product is a designer by trade she used to design for rockstars like Linkin Park. and. Trung. probably looks familiar because he's already built a couple of companies and he's already exited a couple of credit companies as well, and I'm not your typical founder at least not statistically I started my career in sales. I am not a developer. I am a Mexican woman and I did not raise any money for Florida's we actually started Florida's as a side Hustle And yet we are at five million error in less than a year. We've taken zero funding. So we on one hundred percent of her company where growing a fifty percent month over month, and we have almost zero chart. So the question is, how did we do it and over sharing a couple of things from her playbook? Sharon full transparency hoping that you can grab as much as you can and apply yourself as well. But it really boils down to one key thing that we did in it is that we chose our customer. And in talking about how we bootstrap to five million, a are less than a year. We should probably talk about why would would strapped first. So as I mentioned before chose our customer very early on when you were we were going to build these four and we also made a decision very early on that we wanted to capture that customers validation before we got that investors validation. So we also knew that time spent talking to investors would be time spent away from customer so we just decided to. For, US but time early on and. That actually turned out to be our biggest secret. We found founder market bid and founder market meant that we newark awesome are very well, and in a way we also wear customer. So before building slow desk I spent time working honey book where I served specifically small business owners, creative small business owners and Rebecca in trunked we're building a business called gallery where they were selling email templates for small business owners as well and we were part of the community we were friends with other creative business owners and we Knew. there. Pain because we felt the pain too and we knew the solution because we would use to and bat was key to how fast we were able to build these. In one thing we found was just true across the board that regardless of where you are in your journey whether you're just that idea stage in your coming to get the knowledge of what is the best way to start or may already created MVP and you're already having in the product or maybe you're already scaling right and growing super-quick. Wherever you are deeply an intuitive understanding. Your customer will move the needle for you a crazy story that we had a early on as well was when we were lunch himself on wording. These was exactly a year and a week ago we realized that we needed a website because we couldn't expect people to sign up for product. If we didn't have a website in typically, companies will hire agency and they'll run some data surveys raid and we didn't have time to do these but we also in way knew intuitively what we needed to. Write in what site and we didn't create a website. We ended up creating landing page and just staying up at night and that west side just reflected the questions that we newer customers would ask and what they wanted to see before signing up for trial and yes eventually we're going to build a real website with like many pages and more information but. That learning page single landing, Page Converts Up Twelve Point Seventy, five percent, which is. Ten point seventy five percent more than your average SAS visitor to free trial commercial rates. The point is if you know if you really truly tried to deeply understand your customers, then you're going to know intuitively as well. How to resonate with them, what to say what to build and just going save you a lot of time. Here. It's just to break it down further you have your traditional startup story, right? So it typically starts with the founder who has an idea right? All of a sudden. There's lightbulb moment and they want to test hypotheses around that product by creating an MVP, an a minimum viable product what what is the least amount we can build to put out there and get validation? And when they build the product, they typically put it in front of a customer segment and customer segment can change right or might say the same in the process goes back and for the few times, right. You've been in front of your customers you hear what they have to say about it, and then you iterating based on that and you go around a couple of times. Truth. Is Ninety percent of startups fail at this point they don't don't make it past this

CPD Says Man Walked To Northwestern Hospital After Getting Bitten By Coyote

"Cart negroes man I Courtney how you doing Hey good morning how are you I'm good in your own coyote watch again aren't you oh my gosh it's been an eventful morning we spotted wound only now right here northwest campus northwestern hospital but it there is this sense in area right on your bank you hear me and we learned about a thirty two year old man got it last night like a few hours ago been around midnight to the ER clustered in that business in the rear and so we came out to see the area where thirty that which was right on Fairbanks near here on an album of the year Takako down here thanks John he thought the curfew he actually walked up to our camera to cross the street crossed Huron and my right away it would be amazing but that's actually the second time that we've encountered a coyote this week alone it's the first encounter was on Monday well one Christine on I don't like surprises you know really notable look you know the book about the fighting did that you know that a five year old was it last night yesterday afternoon at the page go to bart nature medium that child local times in the head taken to the hospital the children's hospital and we're told that child have been stabilized by that we don't know if it's the same with multiple coyotes whatever the one that we saw this morning appear to be a little press seven and also appeared to be injured limping a little bit though kind of scary you know the five year old a boy a bit in Lincoln Park and where did you say the the guy who is a bit in the but that attacked so he was attacked while you're in northwestern hospital camp it though right here pretty much done on Fairbanks near here on and he was walking down the street on their bank on the block of Fairbanks and ended up being bitten on the revised its cargo de and so he went home and you know took care of himself for a little while and then I guess he thought it best to go to the ER thought around midnight showed up at the northwestern ERT report that he got it by this karaoke so yeah that we learned about that but that would you know we're talking about two people being bitten by coyotes and less than twelve hours in the city of Chicago which is pretty unusual and you know both animal experts would tell you coyotes don't want to bother you they don't wanna bite you but whether we're dealing with just this one or or if this is multiple Cayley's whatever the cases they it appears that they appear to be critical and if your TV news photographer and you you've got video of a coyote that that's a good day at work isn't it well yeah John it's pretty excited we've been speculating it on Instagram Facebook and on Twitter at follow out there is a pretty amazing stuff because even on the video you can hear him she will waive the coyote at the crossing the street could be looking at the camera he was coming or die coming for the camera and Donald Michael wait go away so he was pretty amazing though initially totally got it better turned around after cross the street and kind of started running again but yeah pretty interesting stuff you never know what you're going to be in the booklet interesting stuff two three o'clock in the morning yeah for sure animal care and control now says that if you spot a coyote yeah you can call in right three three one one correct actually and interestingly enough that's what we did when we when John and then a coyote this morning we got on the phone to call police let them know that we have spotted it in this area because it was just a few hours after the thirty development and it in the phone a lot pretty much and so we notify police and they in turn can notify animal care troll and were searching for clues that could come out and actually starts for the coyote yeah he's been making a parent if you're on the north side from Linkin park to the Gulf coast so keep your eyes peeled just never know when he's going to make him style make myself now and again in the experts say it's it's really unusual for coyote to approach somebody let alone let alone attack this this is is very odd isn't it Larry and that's why we're wondering out window animal experts you know we can talk later this morning but here it is hi Judy this particular community that will be we spotted this morning the two o'clock hour may even be injured it appears to be limping having some sort of a leg injury perhaps that's the reason why he still corrective is maybe somebody hurt him more he was harmed in some way and now he's not very trustworthy and people so we're not really sure but hopefully the animal care and control could catch up to him and give on the care that he needs but we also know on interestingly enough there was a coyote that was pulled from Lake Michigan and the same day that we initially spotted the coyote on like surprise on Monday there was also a coyote cool from like Michigan icy water diversity responded came out cold film and entreated that coyote but we don't know whatever happened to that coyote if they release them back into the wild or if they still have three in care of this particular coyote felt that so I think we don't know if it's one of the local out here who's the who's the cameraman again who got the video in who we hear on the video showing the coyote away did you see Jon download download and we are to give him his props and also give him time today to go back to the station and get in the editing room and add that clip to his resume highlight reel because you know hello and he'll want to do that was not very often you get voice over work to you yeah yeah that's right clearly we know when we'll be seeing a lot of our channel line all day today and tonight thanks a lot of course he proceeded to report no problem Bobby take care all right have a
