    Its cool! I love it :)

    hey, the mixtapes rock! they remind me of the good old days when I exchange comparable tapes with my closest friends. we’d still do if we had the technique…

  3. rockermeg on July 28, 2009 at 9:40 am

    Hahahaa…MC Hammer xD
    You got some decent Method Man and Beatles on there ๐Ÿ™‚
    Not one of my favourite mixtapes

  4. Melissa on July 26, 2009 at 6:21 pm

    Marilyn Manson covered Five to One, Spineshank covered ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ and Negative covered ‘Hey Hey, My My’ … I think Linkin Park should cover MC Hammer… yes? YES! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. analoggirl on July 26, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    I like new mixtapes! Thanks!

    I love how you paired the booming drums from Big Daddy Kane’s “Set it Off” with Neil Youngโ€™s poignant vocals. It gives “Hey, hey, my, my – rock and roll will never die” new meaning. And why does it feel like every mixtape of yours features some member from the Wu-Tang Clan? lol

    Lastly, I was surprised to hear the inclusion of Portishead’s “Mourning Air.” (This song appears on my War Child charity CD from the ’90s and I’ve loved it ever since.)

    I still think your first mixtape was the best and hope you’ll step up your game for the 5th. To quote Kane, there ain’t no half steppin’. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    WOO!!!! i love yer mixtapes!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. soyuneik on July 23, 2009 at 8:18 pm

    Yea, Thanks Mike, I’m gonna go ball my eyes out now and drink. I feel like I just got out of a bitter relationship and I’m standing outside in the rain holding a stuff teddy bear with one eye! ..and its balling too! lol, but I loved it. If you haven’t listened to this already and you feel like ballingcough I’m mean smiling your eyes out, I highly recommended Lee Hazelwood’s “The Old Man and His Guitar”. and then to recover watch this: http://vimeo.com/5452385 Trust me.

    Hey, Mike your band has been playing ONE setlist for the past few shows of this Run and its all 18setlist can you guys change the setlist up a bit not playing the same song every night. like open With WID and close out with Bleed it out.
    bring back some of the old songs like With you and dont stay, papercut Figure 0.9 is it possible to go to 21 setlist and Chester said a while back ago you guys want to beat the MUSE how can you guys beat the MUSE with an 18 setlist???? And if you guys want to beat the MUSE i suggest to drop the soft songs like leave out all the rest shadow of the day and USE QWERTY and some use a HARD setlist. like By myself With you a place for my head and songs like that.

    Granted, Mike, these mixtapes are not the most impressive things in the world. But since I was born in the 80’s, listening to much older songs is so much fun to do. And, when it comes to music, I’m sure you probably like having the background music on the site, but aside from it being generally annoying to listen to, it drowns out the mixtapes sometimes, and completely overlaps the videos. Even when I open a video in a new tab/window, it still gets drowned out, so I have to leave your site entirely. I don’t care for that much.

  10. jeffryLP on July 23, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Very amusing to see these young people ,share the fun,jump around & chat abt how cool their hero ( I dare to bet not many of those who know The Doors or Neil young ) while, me sitting quietly in the office with a cup of coffee and this fucking tie that make me can’t breathe , try to relax although deadline is in pursuit and bills must be paid !! damn why I was still here ?? but that the beauty we can compare among adolescents and the man in the middle age like me,the old get the Tropical Goddess And the young get Cloudless LOL !!

  11. dianlucas on July 23, 2009 at 5:05 pm

    http://twitpic.com/bdewb – Someone got a little overexcited in Austria. Horrible. Anyways, nice MIXTAPE!

  12. Madlen on July 23, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    I’m about to listen to it actually…btw 21.07.2009 was like the best day ever for me because I got to see you live for the first time and let me tell you…you ROCK MY WORLD!:DThank you for the amazing show…I came from Bulgaria to see it and it was totally worth it.:)

  13. CraigT on July 23, 2009 at 3:39 pm

    keep ’em comin!! I love them.

  14. Curiosa on July 23, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    It’s Hammer time! ๐Ÿ˜› lol but I’ll have 2 listen 2 this later cause Iโ€™m at work. ๐Ÿ˜› I noticed on your art site that it said Aug. 29 was going 2 be a private showing & party & will be open 2 the public starting the 30th. Hopefully I’ll get a chance 2 see ur show but I doubt it because we’re leaving on the 30th & here I was all xcited about getting a chance 2 see the detail of ur work. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe next chance I get. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    Hey Kalini showed me some awesome pics of Greece on her myspace. Can u beat her pics? ๐Ÿ™‚ Oh is me not being able 2 c ur blog on the 21st after log in ur b-day joke for me? ๐Ÿ˜› lol How’s the tour going? ๐Ÿ™‚ Having fun? ๐Ÿ™‚ TC

  15. BigBadBraun on July 23, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    How is the Beatles song called?

  16. YourConscience on July 23, 2009 at 2:27 pm

    I’m still pretty bummed that I can’t make it to the art show… SIGH …I think you should have Rob take pictures of your artwork and then bring them to the hospital for me and newborn baby to see. smiles hopefully

    P.S. Nice mixtape. I have to admit, I usually don’t like the stuff you pick, but I adore #4. Haha.

  17. JanekZech on July 23, 2009 at 2:22 pm

    it seems like you’ll only play ONE setlist for the whole summer tour. And this setlist consists of only 18 songs, of which 16 are singles. This is VERY disappointing for most of us hardcore LP fans because we want to hear older, heavier stuff and not the same songs you’ve been playing for two years now. Don’t forget that the Hybrid Theory CD becomes ten years old this year and I would be a nice thank you for all the ’99 HT street soldiers if you could play one of those songs like Carousel, Part of Me etc. Or at least put Papercut on the setlist again, it’s a fan-favorite and it was kinda shocking too hear that it was dropped.
    Thanks for reading.

  19. Full_Metal_Ninja on July 23, 2009 at 2:15 pm

    Your mixtapes are always a good mix of different popular genres. I do have to say that never in my life I would have thought to even hear a mix tape with silversun pickups and mc hammer in it LOL. Sounds awesome!

  20. Sintia on July 23, 2009 at 2:10 pm

    Another great MIX mike!! I had to listen to it first to figure out who the artists were. But some I haven’t heard before which is unusual for me. I’m pretty good knowing all sorts of artist just listening but you got me. Its a good thing you have More Info there for us to look at just in case we may want to get a song we haven’t heard before. Thanks for sharing your new mix tape! I’m always in the mood to listen to mixes, new music & artists. So don’t get to crazy on the road…but then again it would be good for a video on LP and LPU!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Well ne ways be careful and enjoy life. I hope you, LP, & your families are doing good and are in good health. ๐Ÿ˜€

  21. Kalini on July 23, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    That was nice – The Doors, Neil Young, Metric, M.C. Hammer, Portishead, Bjork. Thanks! K

  22. Michael1904 on July 23, 2009 at 1:27 pm

    Mike, thought about running a mixtape competition up on here? Mixtapes are great, and the whole point is to share them, so that might be a cool idea for a contest. What do you think?

    Also, ‘Joanna’ down below mentioned a Hybrid Theory soldier action figure. I have to agree with them, that’s quite a cool idea.

    Thanks Mike,

  24. Lori on July 23, 2009 at 11:05 am

  25. Eddie on July 23, 2009 at 10:36 am

    Hey Mike this Mixtape is very cool!!!! Btw when I sign in I can’t view and comment your previous post… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Did you take a look at the book that the Greek LPUers gave to you? Hope you like the book and the graffiti I made, and also I hope that you read the small request I made in my letter, to upload a picture of the BLUE SPRAY LP GUITAR (from Somewhere I Belong video)!! When I saw it on stage… OMG!!!! IT WAS SHINING!!!! I don’t know if you saw me but I was the guy rising up the LPU3 T-SHIRT!!! Thank you again for the mixtape!!!! I think this is the best one!!! Take care brother!!!!

  26. LAX on July 23, 2009 at 9:40 am

  27. Dori on July 23, 2009 at 9:40 am

    Not bad, Mike… Before I started listening to these tapes, I must’ve been an idiot cause I didn’t know mixtapes different genres of music. I thought it was all underground hip-hop music… lol Thanks for opening my eyes!

  28. Janni_Loves_LP on July 23, 2009 at 9:09 am

    Btw, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU for the show here in Greece! It was freaking awesome! I have to admit that I cried during Hands Held High! Thx so much for rapping the first verse Mike ๐Ÿ˜‰ Remember at some point when you said about the LPU and you pointed at someone who was screaming? Well that was me! xD Anyways, thx again for coming it meant a lot to us! It was the second best day of my life! (the first was your first show here)

    PS. Did you take a look at the book some kids from the LPU gave you? Any thoughts?

( Thanks to you Hon ) so Iโ€™ve to say .. YES I DO .. like ur new mixtape ๐Ÿ™‚ , oh Btw did I already told you that I Luv U so much this day ? Not yet ? Ok , I Luv U So Much ( Whaat ?.. I’m in the ‘amused’ situation at this time !!) well, thanks again for ur generous ! TC

  42. Joanna on July 22, 2009 at 7:58 pm

    alright so Mike…I kind have a funny/random idea for you and the LP team. my bf actually came up with it when we were on a topic about LP. You guys should make like a Hybrid Soldier Action Figure for the LPU fans. what do you think?

    and also, anyone else who reads this I want your opinion too..maybe itll help LP to actually do it…yay or nay?
