    I would like to see New Divide available as downloadable content for Rock Band 2! Today they released a Green Day pack with the song 21 Guns which appears on the Transformers soundtrack. Perhaps a Transformers song pack for Rockband is in order!

    Awww. Bum! I was so close to the stage, I was REALLY hoping to see myself. Ah hell, who cares? I was there! Thanks for the freebie!

    Im just writing to say thank you for blessing us with your music. I last night got told my dad has cancer&has 6 months to live.So I spent 8 hours listening to my fav band LP&it helped get all my emotions out&I feel genuinly better.Songs like given up helped get anger out&songs like my December helped get the tears out.So thank you!!ย

    WHOA! This was awesome!

    Will you guys ever perform in Romania?… Oh and will you change the current LP logo or you will keep it like it is?

    Yo Mike, on a random note, if you’ve ever played this or seen anyone play it, you would know how ridiculous this song is.
    Check this video out of this dude playing this song on Guitar Hero. A challenge for Rob?

  10. MattZone on June 26, 2009 at 8:50 am

    Hey Mike. I really enjoyed watching that performance. . . but one thing still bothers me about New Divide. . . What does the song mean? I know the folks in Linkin Park like to leave things open for interpretation, but I’d really like some idea of what I’m supposed to be thinking about whilst listening to the song.

  11. natalia_spain on June 26, 2009 at 8:01 am

    hi mike!! iยดm watching the trailer of transfrmers right now in the TV jeje

  12. Mimz_LP on June 26, 2009 at 7:58 am

    mike i see that chester talks only for dead by sunrise ! if he leaves i will continue to listen LP but BRAD JOE DAVE YOU CHESTER and ROB – YOU HAVE THIS ENERGY…when you’re together you can make the music amazing ! sorry but fort minor and dead by sunrise couldn’t be like LP ! i know these bands are very different but only Lp have this amazing energy ! BBB Roby Mikey Chazy Phi Hahn (forever)(rocks)

  14. Ruben on June 26, 2009 at 5:47 am

    No offense Mike, but I think your mic needs to be louder OR you have to sing louder. We can’t really hear you singing. It’s not the first time in a live performance that we can’t hear you. But it’s a great performance!

  15. Vexo on June 26, 2009 at 4:30 am

    Hey Mike. I was thinking, it would be great for you guys to do your own version/cover of Jackson 5 – ‘I’ll Be There’ in your upcoming shows as a tribute to Michael Jackson. that would be sensational.

  16. skindesbous on June 26, 2009 at 2:01 am

    This is the first time you play this song live, isn’t it? it sounds really good!๐Ÿ™‚ BTW, you’re going to play in a festival with Tool, if I were you I would be really excited๐Ÿ˜€ I’m excited even being me xD How I’d like to go to that to shows:/

  17. liope on June 26, 2009 at 1:59 am

    Amazing performance!! I saw the movie and i have to say it’s awesome!! And Hans Zimmer did an excellent job with New Divide!

    PS. MIchael Jackson one of the biggest legends of music past away today!! I don’t know if you’re a fan of Jackson but i think it would be good to dedicate a post for him here

  18. crystalrussianla on June 25, 2009 at 10:42 pm

    Hay mike you guys sound great
    seen transformers two time already I love it
    And some bad news today michael Jackson died today he was 50
    Years old I can’t belive it i realy thought he would be alive when I was in my 40’s
    It’s sad How you feel about michael Jackson dieing

  19. shan1105 on June 25, 2009 at 4:32 pm

    Dying to see you guys on tour soon. I live in cleveland Home of Lebron James so i miss all the cali stuff๐Ÿ˜ฆ Rob looks like he put on a little weight. P.S. i like the shoes you were wearing!!

  21. Curiosa on June 25, 2009 at 12:28 pm

    Mike why are people surprised you can sing? Glad to hear you had a fun time & thanks 4 sharing the video & pics.๐Ÿ™‚ Don’t know if you read it but I had already left you comment on “Secret LP Show” about some pics I had already seen. I asked Bobo if he had dressed you & he laughed & said maybe you were inspired. lol I still think he dressed you.๐Ÿ˜› Either way you looked great.๐Ÿ™‚ & that was a great performance.๐Ÿ™‚ Take care.๐Ÿ™‚

    PS: Brad looks like he belongs w/the Jonas Brothers w/o facial hair.๐Ÿ˜› lol He looks so young! & also sickly skinny. Sum1 needs to feed him.๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    PSS: Guessing Ryu & Cheap weren’t at the premiere since they didn’t mention it.๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hope they’re on the soundtrack.

  22. gaby_ on June 25, 2009 at 11:27 am

    Awesome! I wish I was there๐Ÿ˜€ Btw I just watched the new LPTV and LPUTV episodes! Haha! Both are amazing….Seriously now in the LPTV episode when you and Chaz were hidden in the balloons I didn’t see you at first and when you kicked the balloons and revealed yourself I was scared…it was so sudden haha!๐Ÿ˜€ But great…and I loved the part you played in the piano…Awesome! You should sing more often Mike๐Ÿ˜‰

  37. soyuneik on June 25, 2009 at 12:21 am

    I’m going to see if Mr. Hahn would like to play as the Decepticons so we can have a full TF war in someones front yard. Care to Join? Somehow that rolled right of my tongue like I was a neighbor asking to borrow some sugar… Hahasnort. I was researching something earlier… and I accidently came across a quote…We can skip the rest right? “The Rising Tied Lifts all Ships”

    PS: Badass Show

  38. abbykulyde on June 24, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    mike, you looked so excited with your big smile at the start of your performance.. you guys did it very well! i liked it!;D

  39. allhailmike on June 24, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    awesome lighting man. video editing is sexed out. chester and the rest as usual EPIC.

  40. teena39 on June 24, 2009 at 8:45 pm

    Im so glad I was there!!! It was awesome!!๐Ÿ˜€

  41. ThePrincess on June 24, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Oh great .. seriously why you hate me so much Mike ??? one more post about The LP Secret show .. i’m soo ready to shoot my head โ€ฆ ( I blame my Evil Boss coz he made me couldn’t watch that great show … I hate him !!!)

    NOTE : TWO DAYS IN LA BUT I STILL CAN’T FIND YOU .. WHERE ARE YOU BY THE WAY ???? (yes i’m lose my mind again LOL )

  42. durg on June 24, 2009 at 8:16 pm

    ohh, see you said it right, ‘LIVE from the premiere, AIRED on jk’, everyone else is saying it was played live ON jk & im like O.o .. no .. :p

  43. Victoria_LPF on June 24, 2009 at 7:47 pm

    I was there!! Right on the left of the stage!! You guys were amazing that night! Worth the travel across the US!!

  44. Celestial on June 24, 2009 at 7:08 pm

    This song sounds so much better live. I loved the three screen action as well. Shout out to those three dudes jumping the entire time! And that little excited smile and head bob MShin did when the song started. LOL!

  45. Jenn on June 24, 2009 at 6:14 pm

    you guys looked and sounded AMAZING as always, good to see a live song from you guys again. Gahh you guys have to come back to Boston, I miss seeing this live so much! I agree with the post below that you need some more rapping- you’re taking out a vital part of lp’s sound by not doing so. good luck with the tour this summer and hopefully you’ll be seeing me kick your ass in the transformers game soon๐Ÿ™‚ hah have a nice day mike!

  46. Ana_ on June 24, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Awesome performance!!๐Ÿ˜‰ You guys are amazing on stage!! I miss Rock in Rio Lisbon, Portugal (2008)… :’) Ana.

  47. keineAhnung on June 24, 2009 at 5:03 pm

    AWESOME!!!! that just made my day!! wish I was there!๐Ÿ˜ฅ

    (btw, if you’re ever in need of a support act for shows in germany or austria: try to get the guano apes! their performance at rock am ring was amazing!!! love their version of big in japan… http://www.mtv.de/videos/20199761 …make sure to check out “lord of the boards” too/ last song on the right side)

  48. Maaark on June 24, 2009 at 4:38 pm

    I have it on my iPod already. I didn’t think it’d be possible but I like the live version better than the studio version. Chester’s vocals and yours are amazing, and I also love Brad’s and Rob’s performances. If anyone complaints about it, just don’t listen to them Mike. It’s impossible to perform better than you did. You guys are amazing! Thank you so much for sharing the video.

    @ZWATICA You’re free to like or dislike all the songs you want, but you can’t ask Mike to do something just because you want him to. I trust LP and I know they’ll release a great album, as good and somewhat different from MTM (which is my favorite so far).

    You rock Mike!

  49. Madlen on June 24, 2009 at 3:21 pm

    I almost cried when I first saw this video…you’re so amazing!I love you guys!

  50. zahra on June 24, 2009 at 3:20 pm

    I CANT SEEE :(….irans blocked utube…..aaaaaaaaaaaah but my friend seemed disturbed by chesters white pants!!!lol…(i have no idea what she means but she was going crazy!!!)HAHA….PS.Zwatika i was thinking of the same thing today.////

  51. NoMoreSorrowGirl on June 24, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhh!

    I’m not there…LOL

    Well, five billion stars for that…take care:)

    Chazzy nice outfit!

  52. Zwatika on June 24, 2009 at 2:50 pm

    Mike, if you are reading this, please I mean PLEASE go back to rapping for LP. I miss the old style of LP. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a die hard fan, but… Minutes to Midnight kind of sucked compared to everything else you guys released. I still loved Minutes to Midnight, but I had to force myself to listen to it before I grew to like it. I think the problem with Minutes to Midnight was that you didn’t rap in half the songs. I know for a fact that I’m not the only one who thinks this. Still love New Divide, but I seriously hope that you rap in more songs this album then last. Show the world that you can still mix rock and rap and make excellent music while you do it. We miss the old LP.

  53. Wello on June 24, 2009 at 2:40 pm

    Dear Mike,
    Please tell Chester not to wear white pants anymore. It’s really disturbing. And don’t combine the combat boots with the white pants if he must have the white pants. I’m sorry, but Chester needs to know this. I’m frightened.
    But it’s okay, if he chooses not to heed this advice because, because he’s Chester Bennington.

  54. ReeceJ on June 24, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    Mike is it true that Rick Rubin is going to be producer for the next album? Either NME got it wrong or Chester told about it. http://www.nme.com/news/linkin-park/45562 good luck on the album.

  55. EmKei on June 24, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    OK, first, I gotta say that Mike had the best outfit…The tie, shirt, hat; wonderful! And second: I see that lot of fans write about you coming to Greece, so will you guys EVER come to Serbia?!? You have a lot of fans here, and we wanna see you LIVE!!!:))) Great perfomance!LOL

  56. linkinladie328 on June 24, 2009 at 1:23 pm

    I WAS THERE!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  57. Yahali on June 24, 2009 at 1:12 pm

    hey mike:) I’ve heard on MTV an old song of LP which is called ‘Crawling’. After few song, I heard your new pascol for Transformers movie – ‘New Divide’. The difference between those songs is really big. I know about the decision to make the change of the genres – between nu metal to rock

    I wonder if you have any thought of regert about the old genre.

    Today, when you are listening to a song like ‘Crawling’, do you think to yourself: ”we could do it better” or ”we could do it in a different way”?

    Mike, thank you for a great music, keep rockin:)

  58. anaslinkin on June 24, 2009 at 12:54 pm

    wowowowowowo AWESOME AWESOME LP LPLPLPLPLPLLPLPLP FOREVER THE BETST!!!!!!!THE BEST!! THE VIDEO IS OF LUJO!!!

  63. mike_n_LP_4ever on June 24, 2009 at 11:49 am

    The performance wuz awsome! I really like this song live. I watchd it on MTV 2, then i heard that it wuz gunna be on Jimmy Kimmel later, and I wuz like, ‘OMG, I gotta watch it again!’ So I did.๐Ÿ™‚ I love how Chester wuz dressd in all white; he lookd like an angel.๐Ÿ˜› Brad lookd really hot too.๐Ÿ™‚

    I got goose bumps when I was listen to the Performence! Brilliant!!!! I know why Iยดm loving you๐Ÿ˜€ Thanx for sharing all these things with us๐Ÿ™‚ I like you guys xD
    hugs & kisses

  65. Diana_LP_adicted on June 24, 2009 at 11:43 am

    GREAT PERFORMANCE ! YOU GUYS STILL ON SHAPE LOL you’r always do great shows๐Ÿ˜€

  66. ShadowerLiltani on June 24, 2009 at 11:39 am

    Gotta adore the grin you did when the song started. I think, of all the versions of this song I’ve heard so far, I like live the best. That was great, thank you for putting it up, plus the pictures. The video itself was well done, too. I gotta say though, I really wish that they focused on Joe during that electronica part, cause I get a kick out of the way he plays with the turntable in the music video, nd that would’ve been awesome if they showed that during the performance. I still wanna know if asking about the pictures and videos actually got them on the site, or if you have just become very easy to predict. Toodles ^___^

  67. ReeRee on June 24, 2009 at 11:38 am

    nice video! ND sounds great live

  68. Eddie on June 24, 2009 at 11:30 am

    Yes yes yes yes YES!!!!! I saw it earlier!!!! It’s awesome!!! OMG can’t wait for the Greek show!!! I will faint when New Divide’s intro gonna sound!!!! Cant wait!!!! And congratulations to all of you!!!

  69. MartaH on June 24, 2009 at 11:22 am

    PERFECT! I’m proud to be a LP fan! thank you mike!๐Ÿ™‚

  70. spraypaintNinkpens on June 24, 2009 at 11:18 am

    Nice show mike, I wish I was there. Transformers was good but dragged on a little too long. What did you think about the movie?

    PS. Add me on Xbox live, my gamertag = spraypaintn ink

  71. Maneita on June 24, 2009 at 11:10 am

    Oh My God!!!, A Wonderful Preforming!!!, AMAZING!!! Mike you and the other guys are the best in the world!! THANKS SO MUCH!!

  72. Lvix on June 24, 2009 at 11:09 am

    Thanks for sharing Mike!
    I already mailed 350 Belgian LP fans in our website database about the Live performing.

  73. Aikaterine on June 24, 2009 at 11:04 am

    It’s cool! I love that song and the show had to be really great๐Ÿ™‚

  74. Kalini on June 24, 2009 at 10:59 am

    What a great idea to show 4 of you at the same time. Thanks for the video! I liked it a lot. New Divide is in Top 10 of the Rock chart on MTV. K

  75. MS_Ineedyou on June 24, 2009 at 10:53 am

    Hey uhh .. Mike … O.o umm … Did you perform that on Jimmy Kimmel ??? Or is that from the performance two nights ago for the LPU L.A show ?? Cause i was in the LPU chatroom last night, and Courtney goes “MTV!!” and i was like … wha..?? XDD and she was like “They’re showing ND by LP from the performance last night!!” So i turned on MTV, and sure enough, it was a New Divide performance…looked like the exact same one from Jimmy Kimmel … so .. how did MTV get the performance before Jimmy Kimmel aired ??? —Brooke .

  76. YourConscience on June 24, 2009 at 10:41 am

    Hmm… Maybe it’s just in combination with meeting you and the guys last week, but I liked New Divide better during the rehersal. ๐Ÿ˜„
