As some of you may have noticed, a new MUSIC section has appeared at the top of mikeshinoda.com. This section will be for some stuff I think you should listen to or have. With each track, there’s a button to play it, a “more info” button, and a “download” button. Some tracks won’t be downloadable, but the first one is. I was playing around with Ableton Live and made this mix. Feel free to check it out. As usual, if you like any of the original songs, please go buy them. Here’s what’s mashed up in the mix:

Pearl Jam – Jeremy
Depeche Mode – Never Let Me Down
Wu Tang Clan – C.R.E.A.M.
Green Day – Wake Me Up When September Ends
Fugazi – Cashout
Method Man – Bring The Pain
Cypress Hill – How I Could Just Kill A Man
One Day As A Lion – Wild International
Boogie Down Productions – Illegal Business
Above The Law – Murder Rap
Nine Inch Nails -Ghosts 1, Track 7
Mobb Deep – Shook Ones Pt. 2
The D.O.C. – Funky Enough
LL Cool J – Boomin System
Simple Minds – Don’t You Forget About Me
Cool Kids – That’ll Work
Radiohead – Reckoner
Tribe Called Quest – Push It Along
Nas – The World Is Yours (demo version accapella)

    Just got around to watching Road to Revolution and the Petrified/Points of Authority was AMAZING! I loved it. Will it be available for the fans? Hands Held High was a highlight too. Looking forward to seeing you guys live.

    hey mike my friends an i are starting a band and we were wondering if you can give us a hand. we still need 2 choose our stile and was wondering if you can help up.

  5. manda on January 20, 2009 at 5:53 am


    this mixtape is wonderful 🙂

    keep up the good work!

  6. ShadowerLiltani on January 19, 2009 at 7:51 am

    Yo to you too. Saves you the trouble of having to put this stuff in your blog. Do you have any intentions of putting any other music related things in that section, like articles or the kind of advice you’ve been giving us? Although that would make it a little harder for people to notice, I guess. Eh, whatever dude, at the end of the day it’s your website 🙂

  7. soyuneik on January 19, 2009 at 1:29 am

    So far so dope. I’ll have to listen to the rest some other time because I seem to have fried my mixer. haha I’m not even joking. So.. Since you’ve somehow captured a eerily identical selection of songs I chose for something… (long story skipped) I’m debating whether I should ask you if your an alien OR why you forgot Big Daddy Kane?

  8. MS_Ineedyou on January 18, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    Thats a cool mixtape ! 🙂 Thanks for sharing it with us !! Have a good weekend .—Brooke .

  9. Ana_ on January 18, 2009 at 1:04 pm

    A music section..That’s a good idea! Very nice your mixtape!! 🙂 *

  10. lynndarwinharris on January 18, 2009 at 11:14 am

    Awesome mixtape!! Thanks for placing it on this site to share with us! Have a good Sunday !

  11. lpcrazygirl on January 18, 2009 at 9:56 am

    I really like the fact that there is a music section on your site now.
    the mixtape is great and I already had download it.
    Even you lpu exclusive song is very nice.
    Are you still in the studio? How does it goes? Everything alright?
    Thank you for making so good stuff 🙂

    m-m-m-mike shinoda!!

  14. nurba on January 18, 2009 at 7:58 am

    Excellent mixtape,Mike!!!

  15. lo2lo2 on January 18, 2009 at 6:04 am

    This section is really gr8, 2 my amazment idk any of the songs except wake me uo when september ends,yet i couldn’t really recognize it in the middle of the mash up. Anyways 10x 4 the songs and the tip about us buying the songs we like lol.

  16. parm1der on January 18, 2009 at 5:51 am

    Damn… I love the end with Nas, i mean that instrumental with his vocals… amazing
    Can’t wait to hear more.. loving the old school stuff.

    I don’t suppose you’ve heard Reks’ album “Grey Hairs”? There are some real standout tracks on it, check it out.

  17. PekiLinkinFan on January 18, 2009 at 5:43 am

    hi Mikee… I love the music Section..
    one question.. is true that anna is pregnant??..

  18. Kalini on January 18, 2009 at 5:33 am

    I’ve expected a MUSIC section, but you surprised me that it’s for Recommended music, not for your stuff. Yeah, it’s not the purpose of the site, you’re here as a fan. I enjoyed the mix. You used songs of some of my favorite artists: Depeche Mode, Green Day, Simple Minds, Pearl Jam, Wu Tang Clan, Cypress Hill, Tribe Called Quest, LL Cool J. Thank you for reminding me of Simple Minds. I stil can’t believe that you mixed “Never Let Me down Again” with a rap song and you used the original from 1987. I can recommend to you the remix of the song, which they played at the EMA’s in 2001. Mike, the full name of the song is “Never Let Me Down Again”!!! Please, make it correct! Thanks for the mix! KK

  19. Jaclyn on January 18, 2009 at 4:10 am

    YaY! Music section! There are musicians that i’d hardly get to know without you, i mean what you shared thru the year 😀 I’ll try to check out as more music as possible. Now I like listening to Judas Priest album Nostradamus (what if LP record smth awesome like that and of 23 tracks 😀 prays)

  20. Rex on January 18, 2009 at 3:57 am

    that mixtape is dope
    thanx for sharing!

  21. July on January 18, 2009 at 3:34 am

    i heard couple song in radio of Gta San Andreas. I like it, only this songs. Others… not bad, even cool.

  22. cartoon_art on January 18, 2009 at 3:06 am

    great hip-hop mixtape!

  23. shinnizel15 on January 18, 2009 at 1:58 am

    An excellent mixtape !!! Hey, put up some new lp stuff … sorry … I know u can’t do that but I’m dying to hear some kickass Linkin Park stuff … wish u guys hurry with the new album …

  24. Shinodabestfriend on January 18, 2009 at 1:34 am

    why don’t you download your new Linkin Park songs? hahahaha! 🙂 sorry, I can’t wait anymore… o.o

  25. Gabry94LinkinParkfan23 on January 18, 2009 at 12:54 am

  26. ALivingGrudge on January 18, 2009 at 12:26 am

    Hey Mike!!

    I just thought I’d turn you on to Apparat. He’s a German guy who can make everything from slow, beautiful songs to sweet jams.


  27. Aqua101 on January 17, 2009 at 11:49 pm

    Mike, its an awesome Mixtape you hv made! I like it. It’d be great if we can download all of them :D…where can I buy those mixtapes original anyway? I don’t it is sold in my place, too bad. Finally music section is on. And, Mike…could u update us on yr coming new LP album/songs…pplleeeaaazzzeee! I’m dying to hear another unbeatable LP music. Oh, I just remember, Rob Big Day is coming (20/1). Pls tell my Robbie, Happy BDay to him! My Sweet Robbiiiieeee…!! Take care, buddy 😉

  28. p_lane on January 17, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    gah. . .GAH! This just reminded me of how much I love hip hop. I hope you’ll post more mixtapes, this one was badass!

  29. ThePrincess on January 17, 2009 at 8:17 pm

    Hei.. Finally My Hot Prince has returned.. well I hope you have a good mood today !..so back to the topic..That is awesome ..I was very enthusiastic coz you put Pearl jam’s Jeremy on your list and that is one of my favorite songs ..brilliant..but Fort Minor ‘ The hard way with the melody of Apologize ‘ for me is the best, I know that is not on the list but still :).. thank you so much for sharing with us you’re Awesome..

  30. nillp on January 17, 2009 at 5:56 pm

    i don’t know if funny is the right word/feeling but funny to see how you made all these different songs sound like one huge and amazing thing.. seems that every time i come here, i have to congratulate you.. so congratulations once again for doing an amazing mix. (:

    hope you post new downloadable tracks soon.. (:

    take care;

    mk’nil :*

  31. Hybr1d_7h3ory on January 17, 2009 at 4:53 pm

    That first remix of Jeremy is really good mike!!! I look forward to many more MS origionals


  32. Sonia_LPrnway_ on January 17, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    this is just amazing! thanks for that Mike! 🙂

  33. tpbarbosa on January 17, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    Thanks for the music section Mike, I loved the song you’ve made!
    Pure genious 😀
    Hope you do more and put there as well 🙂

  34. Brittney on January 17, 2009 at 3:55 pm

    Awesome mixtape. The Radiohead part reminds me this Radiohead/Jay-Z mashup I heard at jaydiohead.com. Check it out if you want.

  35. MrSAI on January 17, 2009 at 2:59 pm

    Great Mixtape Mike, flows really well and such great music! Maybe some time you could mashup something of your own (either from LP, Fort Minor, or completely solo)? I know I’d love to mix some of your stuff… Like I always say, we need LP acapellas 🙂

  36. Lvix on January 17, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    I like it!

  37. Sharp_Swimmer on January 17, 2009 at 2:20 pm

    I was going to say something really nice about your mixtape here, but then I remembered that you are the God of Music and that we should expect no less of you… No, seriously, I really enjoyed it! 🙂

    How is the new album coming along? Much flesh on it yet?

  38. Madlen on January 17, 2009 at 2:14 pm

    Brilliant:)I really love the intro…and the whole mixtape too of course:DAnd let me say-great choice of songs:D

  39. lucky_cat on January 17, 2009 at 1:50 pm

    Very cool that we have this here now! The Mixtape is awesome, very good selection. I love good Mixtapes so much, I wish I had the possibility to make one on my own … but, on the other hand, where is a will …
    Thank you !

  40. Doomguy13 on January 17, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    Awesome choice of songs. Nine Inch Nails, Cool Kids, One Day As A Lion…good music taste there. The mix is very clean and sounds natural. I got Ableton Live a few months ago and I really enjoy it… easy to use but has so many almost hidden features to make it more professional.

  41. analoggirl on January 17, 2009 at 1:31 pm

    At the risk of repeating myself, I really enjoyed this mashup. I loved how you breathed new life into old favourites, whether you were teasing us with a sample or dropping a full verse. I’m definitely looking forward to new mixes.

    Side note: what if you became a club DJ in your spare time? You could give Steve Aoki a run for his money. Haha

  42. PankakeMunky on January 17, 2009 at 1:09 pm

    thanks for adding the music section and thanks for putting up your own mixtape. 🙂

  43. linkinparc on January 17, 2009 at 1:07 pm

    oh dats pretty sweet mike, thank you!

    will it be similar to the deftones mixtapes they posted on their blogspot?


  44. miKer0cks on January 17, 2009 at 12:03 pm

    Whoa 🙂 A music section 😀 Love it 🙂 Great idea Mike, thx 🙂 The mixtape is really cool, I liked it a lot…Great taste in music I have to say (again) Depeche Mode, Pearl Jam, Green day, Nine Inch Nails!!! Awesome Mike 🙂 You listen to great music 🙂

  45. NoMoreSorrowGirl on January 17, 2009 at 11:56 am

    Yeah!a music section I notice last night while I’m commenting on your shoe…I already download the free heh!…love the tracks…and hey!your listening to Greenday!love that band…so cool and awesome…Take care and love yah:))

  46. Das419 on January 17, 2009 at 11:53 am

    Great calls with those, especially the Greenday song.

  47. TrustYourself on January 17, 2009 at 11:47 am

    just one word: AWESOME !!! 😉

  48. Raspberry on January 17, 2009 at 11:36 am

    Hey Mike, thanks for the list .. would i be able to recommend a song for you? Marillion – Assassing (spelling as intended) Sorry, i don’t know how to do hyperlinks but the youtube link is http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=ULngjhKnZ0o.

    Love Maria x

  49. Lynnie on January 17, 2009 at 11:34 am

    I didn’t, actually, notice the ‘Music’ tab, so I’m glad you pointed it out – I’ll keep check on it, now.

    Not bad for what it is (well done on the mash-up), but I’m not overly a fan of it. Some of the songs you’ve mashed, though, are wicked. I mean, ‘Don’t You Forget About Me’, ‘Jeremy’ and ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’ are the shit, dude!

    Dude, you need punctuation or a list or something to separate the songs… I got confused reading them as you’ve put ‘artist-track artist-track’ with no separation between ‘track’ and ‘artist’, if you catch my drift!
    Have a good day.

  50. antje on January 17, 2009 at 11:25 am

    Music section….awesome!!!!!! I like this…. :))

    and the mixtape….nice one

  51. cuz on January 17, 2009 at 11:23 am

    Thanks for developing the site Mike! It’s always nice to get some recommendation from you or something new you’ve done. The mixtape is great. You chose really interesting list of songs. I was just boring because of lack of new music to listen to and you’re posting it. Very nice. Enjoy the process of making new music 🙂

    Let us know anything about the NOBODY WALKS IN LA exhibition 🙂 Sounds good 🙂

  52. rockermeg on January 17, 2009 at 11:15 am

    Wow that’s great! Glad you finally got it up!
    The demo is great, looking forward to more

  53. SimplyMode on January 17, 2009 at 11:14 am

    OH WOW! This is awesome! Dude seriously as of right now I am currently your biggest fan 😀

    I loved every song on there already but this the shit

    Ahahaha I love that you have simple minds on there…classic

    Then Nas & Radiohead…best thing I’ve heard in a while!

    I can just see my bestfriends face right now, she’s gonna love this

    Thanks Mike (:

  54. Aiman on January 17, 2009 at 10:43 am

    nice mash-up mike. the only songs im familiar with are wake me up when september ends and 7 ghosts i

  55. Sven on January 17, 2009 at 10:43 am

    Great, especially the song picking, there are some of my favopurite songs of all time! Thx for this!
    And for your first time with Ableton Live its really great, my first try with that piece of software wasn’t nearly so dope.
    Keep it up, i’m looking forward to the next MS Mixtape 😉
    have a nice weekend 😀
