mikeshinoda muxtape

June 6, 2008

muxtape is a site where you can put mixtapes up online to expose your friends (and others) to new music…i made you guys a muxtape to listen to.

mixtape #1 is some hip hop i grew up on…enjoy. if you like any of these songs, please buy them, of course.



PS – you can listen to my muxtape as you browse online, or as you call your radio/video channels to tell then to play LEAVE OUT ALL THE REST! LOL

    Hello, Mike! Possible errors in the text, because I’m not English. I really want to know where you like most about performing?

    That muxtape is hot. My faves are time 4 sum aksion and lefaur leflah eshkoshka. I miss old school rap so much. I hope it comes back, just bell bottoms and tie-dye did.

  5. asianotter on June 7, 2008 at 1:37 pm

    awesome mix! thanks for sharing. and as far as the LOATR thing . . . all over it, Mr. Shinoda!

  6. angie on June 7, 2008 at 8:04 am

    Hey Mike ! Your friend Rob Dyrdek really has recorded song ??

  10. Blake on June 7, 2008 at 12:40 am

    Mike, those dc’s you designed are tight, are they goin to get released? You probably can’t right back. haha

  11. Blake on June 7, 2008 at 12:36 am

    whys everyone fight on here? your mix is thuggen

  12. nillp on June 6, 2008 at 11:51 pm

    u were a really gangsta in ur teenage.. ha!

    i didn’t know some of them..

    i can say that i grew up listening to ice cube and cypress hill too.. since my dad is a huge fan of them.. lol

    take care; love ya ~ mk’nil ♥

  13. M4LL0RY on June 6, 2008 at 11:49 pm

    I really should be sleeping now. My GRADUATION is tomorrow. :O But what am I doing? Sitting here reading your blog. Hah…I’ll definately check that muxtape thing out tomorrow sometime. Right now I need sleep. OO;;; (I swear I’m gonna die If I trip or something XX)

  14. shinoda_me on June 6, 2008 at 9:50 pm

    i can’t listen to any _

  15. caleb_bozeman on June 6, 2008 at 9:01 pm

    don’t you mean tell THEM not then Mike???

  16. NoFace on June 6, 2008 at 8:52 pm

    Oh man, I can just imagine 13 year old Mike Shinoda listening to AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted and feeling so effing cool or getting all gangsta. I LOL’ed, just like you, but I at least I have a reason to, you don’t.

  17. Kira on June 6, 2008 at 7:38 pm

    Another bit of irony: I’m on my last.fm page and my recommendations radio has House of Pain listed as one of the artists and your muxtape happens to have a track by them.

  18. Kira on June 6, 2008 at 7:28 pm

    How very nice of you. It’s a bit ironic because a couple days ago I asked my cousin to make me a mixtape. He’s a hip hop head and has his own radio show. He listens to stuff like La the Darkman, Killah Priest, Little Brother, Jean Grae, and One Be Lo, whereas I don’t even know who the hell these people are. Anyway, he told me to listen to his show and pick a song or two that I like and he’ll make me a mixtape with that kind of flavor all the way through. And then, wouldn’t you know it, like two days later you post a blog in which you give us a mixtape as a present. Very nice.

  19. analoggirl on June 6, 2008 at 7:26 pm

    Hmmm… Yesterday, I mentioned the Rock The Bells tour and today I see your muxtape with Method Man, Redman, Wu-Tang, Cypress Hill, Tribe and Pharcyde. Interesting. 😉 Also, much respect for adding some PE to the mix. They’re the reason why I love hip hop and socially-conscious musicians. I’ll have to make you a muxtape of my own. (lol)

  20. murry on June 6, 2008 at 3:04 pm

    I love Muxtape! I happen to have one, also, but I haven’t quite finished compiling the perfect mixtape on it. It’s not an easy thing to do, ya know?

  21. Xenith on June 6, 2008 at 3:01 pm

    Some great tunes there Mike, but you need to add a category for your newer work like your remix of “Enjoy the Silence by Depeche Mode”.

    I first heard this remix on my local radio station and fell in love with it over a year ago… I have been listening to it via youtube all this time and I only found out this week you did it. Man is there anything you cant produce better? Wonderful work to one of my all time favorite bands. You did them justice… Are there any other remixes I may have missed?

  22. zimminator on June 6, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    good music! i jusr might get it….cuz i love music that not many ppl know about…lol makes me feel special…and i
    LOVE old skool rap

  23. Janni_Loves_LP on June 6, 2008 at 2:12 pm

    I should say from my friend Thien (big FM fan) that you’re a genius! ;P haha! Take care!

  24. Curiosa on June 6, 2008 at 2:06 pm

    Well Mike I’ll have to think about promoting LOATR I mean u guys went & added Busta to PR meanwhile last yr u guys deprived us of any hip-hop acts & worst of all PR isn’t even coming to our town when the line-up is sooo much better this yr (especially w/Busta) than last yr. Yeah I’ll have to think about it. rolls eyes :)~
    Hey since Busta is part of PR does this mean SOB will also be joining u guys? It didn’t make sense to have them last yr since PR was just a rockk concert. Have a good weekend. 🙂

  25. Janni_Loves_LP on June 6, 2008 at 2:01 pm

    Hi Mike! I Just wanted to say thank you for an awesome show last night in Denmark! And I can’t believe I finally met you guys! Seriously I was sooo nervous (yes, I’m the blonde girl with the squeeky voice) lol! Not that I think you’ll remember me.. hehe.. Anyways, I’m sorry I didn’t get to shake your hand, but that stupid life guard dragged me away! :’O But I hope you enjoyed my little homemade gift (a CD with some Danish bands, I gave to Phi) But THANK YOU again, and I hope to meet you some time again! You seem like a nice guy! 🙂 Much love and respect – Janni

  26. Linkin_Giady on June 6, 2008 at 1:23 pm

  43. cream3 on June 6, 2008 at 6:37 am

    Hey Mike ! Your friend Rob Dyrdek really has recorded song ??

  44. Cuidado on June 6, 2008 at 6:06 am

    Got a question about your DC shoe remix, when will it be released? Cause in the LPU mail it said 1th July, but on some of the pages that you linked to in an earlier blogpost it stood 11th July and 1th August :O.
    I’m from Sweden, but me and my family are going over to the U.S, so I just wanted to be sure that I could grab a pair before they will be sold out 😀 Love your art, keep up the good work!

  45. linkinfaith on June 6, 2008 at 5:57 am

    Hey saw your new music Video it rocks! Good one. Who’s idea was it?

  46. axrinekey on June 6, 2008 at 5:48 am

    Hmm.. xD Haven’t heard of Muxtape before…

    But I’m sure glad to listen to them! ;D

  47. Emilia on June 6, 2008 at 4:34 am

    I haven’t ever heard about Muxtape, but It looks nice and cool, I’m listeng your list right now 🙂

  48. Sammy on June 6, 2008 at 4:10 am

    muxtape is cool so many mixtapes are there cool ones !!!!!!

  49. soyuneik on June 6, 2008 at 3:57 am

    lol. Thats so not funny. I just got done reading the chapters of one piece where every other page had a bone pun..come here and your throwing word plays up like you know all. Coincidences in general have a regular habit of appearing in my daily life. Its actually a little inside thing me and a buddy of mine joke about. (If you only knew just how many). Since we’re always thinking about em, the more attention we pay to them. But they always seem to make things so much more amusing. I’ll check that after I’ve slept.

  50. Kostas on June 6, 2008 at 3:18 am

    Yo, it’s always nice to see upon where you built your style (i don’t know if that’s correct english by the way :-p).

    And i still don’t get all the rush about the new single… lol…. it’s linkin park, IT WILL GET ATTENTION. But I guess you know sth more about the way these things work.. take care…

  51. Fishgoingwest on June 6, 2008 at 3:13 am

    Many mixtapes,wow!

    After my College Entrance Examination tommow and the day after tomorrow,I’ve got to enjoy all of them.


    Don’t worry,this is just a wonderful single,so many fans are willing to make it known

  52. msgirl on June 6, 2008 at 3:10 am

  53. Shadowfax1007 on June 6, 2008 at 2:50 am

    Hey Mike,

    Nice muxtape. I stumbled across that site the other day. pretty sweet concept.
    hey if you get a spare moment, do you mind checking out the petition we at Lplive.net have going?

    It’s petitioning Warner to release the Australia/New Zealand tour recordings for sale.


  54. minuteforce on June 6, 2008 at 2:49 am

    you guys are all assholes, i wanted to be first. ;/ haha.

    anyway, none of the songs are playing for me. albeit they’re loading or something.

  55. ms_shock on June 6, 2008 at 2:38 am
