POA intro

August 8, 2009

At the shows, I’ve been doing different verses at the top of our slightly remixed “Points Of Authority.” I need some inspiration: what verse should I do tonight? Something different would be nice…

Summersonic, part 2…


EDIT: Didn’t get to a computer at the venue, so I couldn’t see the suggestions yesterday. We’ll see if I can work a couple of these things in. Also, I don’t know what’s going on with the weather, but whatever it is, I don’t like it, LOL…

    Evening Mike, first of all I’d like to say I’m a big fan of your work be it with Linkin Park or Fort Minor. Keep filling the world with awesome music, that will always be appreciated. So, the usual stuff aside…

    I have a request for you, if you’d please. My ex-girlfriend’s b-day is coming up, and she’s a far bigger fan of you than I am. I can find no better gift to her than something personalized from you, something with a few words for her would make her happy beyond belief. If you could write in a post card or something for her and send me through my email, it would be perfect. Her name is Catia Silva, she was in LP’s recent concert in Portugal. Again, thanks for your awesome tunes man

  3. vivalastone on August 18, 2009 at 5:58 pm

    Mike, how about Esaul or Hit the Floor?

  4. ERICK_ZERO on August 17, 2009 at 6:56 pm

    Hei there Mike!
    maybe you could use something a little older, like dedicated or nobodys listening
    or maybe something only on instruments, but something different, like a intro on bass or drums ( I prefer bass, but it
    s just an opnion)
    see you in Brazil!
    ps: by the way, big fan of Phoenix

  5. LP_fen4e on August 16, 2009 at 2:44 am

    I know that my question isn’t the topic but I don’t know where else I can contact you…so where will you come to Bulgaria!? You have fans here too. πŸ™‚ I hope you answer me [: Sorry for bad English but you understand that I am not English :]

  6. Larissa_22 on August 15, 2009 at 7:37 pm

    Hi Mike! When you play again in Brazil? Next time I will, hehe… We love your work
    (Excuse my terrible english! :P)

  7. LGMK on August 14, 2009 at 3:56 pm

    i agree with anotherlpfan for ‘Part Of Me’ or Spell it Out ( from Rock and Roll )

  8. sarah35 on August 14, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    I have some idea…. Remind soundtrack to Matrix’s trilogy (without vocal) specially track by Moby πŸ™‚ It was in first part.
    Or like ‘Walking dead’ by dj z-trip πŸ™‚

  9. Astorguini on August 14, 2009 at 7:12 am

    i think it would be cool somethin like By Myself and with mr hanh doing a long work or if you want somethin different you could sing in another languaje or make a dance part πŸ˜›

  10. Sleepy on August 13, 2009 at 11:36 pm

    i agree with anotherlpfan for ‘Part Of Me’. I think the song is by far the best and coolest demo you guys have done that has not been included in any studio albums (I LOVE JOE HAHN’s PART IN IT!)….

    And ‘song for the pit’ at the end is awesome. I wish it were longer!

  11. another_lp_fan on August 13, 2009 at 9:08 pm

    I think It would be cool if you’d put some elements of “No More Sorrow” in POA, such as the intro. in could provide an interesting view of how the band has changed in the 7 years between the songs releases. Also, the outro of “Part of Me” (the part after the interlude) for the outro could be incredible.

    P.S. Why is there so long of an interlude in “Part of Me” anyway?

  12. Anene on August 13, 2009 at 6:09 pm

    Hi Mike!

    I know me and loads of other fans would love it if you added the “Reading My Eyes” verse or “By Myself” to “Points of Authority” in the Pomona Show here in the United States on August 22. I would literally faint from excitement unless i get a chance to meet you early on.

    If you also don’t mind,
    Thank you so much for even considering making our day.

  13. Sintia on August 12, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    If the weather gets too scary….RUN and HIDE! Seek shelter or take cover!! LOL Mkay I just sounded like my mom minus the sirens sound effect. Please you, LP, and your families take care.

  14. allhailmike on August 12, 2009 at 9:48 pm

    DUDE , Why Don’t You try including the ‘Announcement Service Public’ tune in some way or the other? Also, verses from ‘Step Up’ And ‘Dedicated’ Should do!

  15. BaZz on August 12, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    Hey Mike, you should do Qwerty over the POA. I think it would be really cool and fresh.

  16. SpikeMinoda1989 on August 12, 2009 at 7:53 am

    Hey Mike, pls put papercut verse 1 over the intro and forgotten verse 1 over the outro!!! thanks for the nice concerts at St. Petersburg, Zurich and Stuttgart!!! sadly i coudn’t see you at stuttgart, cause i didn’t won the m&g -.-!! best regards from germany!!

  17. kanoxrequiem on August 12, 2009 at 5:47 am

    I suggest making a dissolve of the song following one POA, who goes towards remixed “Sold My Soul To Yo Mama”, and also to integrate the sound of the intro for ” 1stp Klsr “.

  18. kUmiKo on August 12, 2009 at 3:43 am

    hey mike! i was there at the summer sonic in tokyo (Chiba).
    your performance never let me down. (though some trouble with chez’s microphone…)
    and your arrengement of “hands held high” was awesome! (what melody was it on?)
    and we were pleased to see chester’s band live. (was that live the first time in the world!?)

    ill wait to see you guys with your new album released in 2010!!
    and please, please, show “sweet child o mine” with long brond wig at next time like you uploaded the pics on this site before!!!!

  19. Southpaw on August 12, 2009 at 12:48 am

    Mike, Have you realized that Forgotten has not been played in over 7 years? It would be great to hear it live again or rap it over POA into/outro. Thanks. LPU & LPST.

  20. phill715 on August 12, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Nobody’s listening would be awesome.

  21. Azrael on August 11, 2009 at 5:55 pm

    how about your verse from Rock and Roll Could Never Hip Hop Like This? That’d be insane!

  22. JeezyJazz on August 11, 2009 at 3:57 pm

    I think you should use something like Dedicated or Nobody’s Listening verses also put the bridge of the demo of the song that part that says: It’s time to sink or swimg…and i think you should also play Untittled (In The End demo) i think the verses are so much cooler and the peaple will love to listen to that song in live performance :D, also Lockjaw or Announcement Service Public as concert intro………hope you like my ideas and good luck on the rest of the tour.

  23. Ghela on August 11, 2009 at 3:35 pm

    Dear Mike, may be you will make something like session, wake or announcement service public. I think it it should be amusing. Sorry, if my English not so good)

  24. Curiosa on August 11, 2009 at 8:01 am

    Hey Mike, there are a lot of good suggestions below. πŸ™‚ Could u let us know which one you choose? Thanks. πŸ™‚ If they’re receiving too much rain, u mind sending us some cause we really need it. πŸ˜‰ Not sure where ur at but were u around when the earthquake hit Tokyo? I also heard about Taiwan. Such a tragedy. 😦 I hope u guys are doing well. TC. πŸ™‚

  25. OneStepCloser on August 11, 2009 at 7:56 am

    26 Lettaz In Da Alphabet πŸ˜‰

  26. Adaminator on August 10, 2009 at 10:54 pm

    Okie dokie, how about A.06? That would be cool πŸ™‚

  27. EpilepticChickenScratch on August 10, 2009 at 10:03 pm

  28. Talvisusi on August 10, 2009 at 2:51 pm

    Hm. Dedicated…
    But I think you should write something new… some new lyric. πŸ˜€ Why not?

  29. chefflez on August 10, 2009 at 2:22 pm

    DEDICATED. or maybe Second to None?

  30. james_elliott on August 10, 2009 at 2:17 pm

    Haven’t done Forgotten in a few years, have you? That’s got a sweet second verse… the extended one, I mean. I’ve always thought it’d be so awesome to hear you guys busting out the demo lyrics for songs. Maybe throw down some Esaul? That’s some tight shit. I don’t know if it’s worth throwing it down almost 40 clicks under tempo, though… that one might be better for Bleed it Out. πŸ˜› I can do it, and I don’t have anywhere near the skillz you do. Uhh… Fuse? Fuse is about the same tempo anyway. Or your verse from We Made It? Dude, you’ve got so many options. But I’d say either Fuse, We Made It, or Forgotten.

  31. noidea on August 10, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    Dear Mike
    You might know that a huge typhoon just hit Taiwan and cause lots of damage and people losing their home and lives.
    Can MFR do anything to help??? It is so sad to see such a nature disaster just hit my home country on news, although I study aboard right now. I just want you to know that you might be able to help them since you are on the way to Taipei having your concert. Many of my friends and family members are so excited to see you. Hope you guys can do something just like you wanted to do last year for China. Thank you so much.

  32. Y_ on August 10, 2009 at 1:35 pm

    Wow..it’s too late…
    hey, mike, did you feel earthquakes? maybe you are already in Okinawa??
    yeah..crazy weather..a typhoon is is moving toward Tokyo area! a typhoon and heavy rain in August..crazy..maybe ’cause of global warming..
    Hope you have a good time for the rest of your stay in Japan πŸ™‚

  33. Philliphera on August 10, 2009 at 10:39 am

    Nice to ask us, what to do. And the thing with the weather… I think you’re not the only one with it haha. The weather is crazy… makes me feel sleepy all the time. Best Wishes Kimi

  34. Tubabu on August 10, 2009 at 9:52 am

    Yo Mike !
    I think it will be very cool if you introduce POA with The Hard Way/ Slip Out The Back or maybe Cigarettes. Yeaah, with Cigarettes it will be amazing. You could be rapping the first verse and the first chorus. No ?
    And if you want… The band could be play “No Roads Left”… It’s will be just perfect to heard this song in live. Ah ah ah… It’s one of my dreams.
    Have a good day/night and enjoy the show mister Shinoda πŸ˜‰
    And see you soon (i hope) in my little France…
    PS: Sorry for my english… I’m french…

  35. ThisIsJohn on August 10, 2009 at 8:48 am

    Hey Mike, what’s up ?
    I think you should do Jay-Z’s 99 Problems, you already did it on “Collision Course”and I loved it (by the way I’d like to hear some new sounds with Jigga and LP). Whatever the intro you will play, can you put a video about this please ?

    PS: Excuse me if I did some mistakes, I’m belgian and I’m still learning English

  36. Akira on August 10, 2009 at 8:46 am

    Ok.. I’m posting here a little question I have… I want to ask you Mike, which guitar did you use on Bleed It Out when you played on Milton Keynes (Road To Revolution)… It’s a grey/white guitar that you have.. Is it a Les Paul? It’s really beautifull, like all of your guitars ^^… So… I hope you could read this and answer me ^^ Thanks ^^

    Oh.. And about your question… I think POA with petrified for intro is pretty cool ^^ Just like you did on RTR ^^

  37. KuleMagnus on August 10, 2009 at 8:28 am

    Step Up?:

    Watch as the room rocks
    Mentally moonwalk
    Mixed media slang
    Banging in your boom box, verbal violence
    Lyrical stylist
    In a time when rock hip hop rhymes are childish
    You can’t tempt me with rhymes that are empty
    Rapping to a beat doesn’t make you an MC
    With your lack of skill and facility
    You’re killing me

    “You love the way…”

  38. Dronnington on August 10, 2009 at 8:19 am

    Hallo Mike! I think song Carousel is great. You can use it in outro) Good luck in Asia, Mike.

  39. addict on August 10, 2009 at 8:06 am

    whatever you decide to do, I guess everybody on here wants to hear it!!! πŸ˜‰ (personally I’d go for tools of the trade, would be a super cool intro…rofl)

    btw, since when do you call yourself optional byline? :p

  40. LinkinParkFan11111 on August 10, 2009 at 7:51 am

    Hey Mike
    I think a good Intro or outro would be the first or the second verse of Carousel cause its a great Song an it goes good with POA ;D

    Or maybe a Step up or Qwerty Intro would be great too .

    If you wanna do a fast intro/ outro I would say please do the fast rapping parts from ESAUL that would be so amazing πŸ™‚

  41. TheLPFreak on August 10, 2009 at 6:55 am

    maybe from …mhh papercut i love the vid..chester had an red iro omg i love iros…i think u had blue black hair it was a great time ..okay i wasn’t fan at that time ..;-((but know i’m one of the biggest i hope i know every fan say it ..XD i love it that u ask us ..ur fans …i really love it that lp has contact with there fans..it’s great not every band make it…greatings to u guys..XD<3

  42. burntwaffle on August 10, 2009 at 6:43 am

    Mike, it would be epic if you performed your verse from “Rock & Roll PT. 2” by Handsome Boy Modeling School over the intro. Over the outro, “Part Of Me”, “Dedicated”, “Frg/10” or even “Hit the Floor”.

    Thanks so much for taking our requests,

    Jack (LPLive.net)

  43. tracysg on August 10, 2009 at 6:16 am

    The weather condition is better now, and we all look forward to the show on Thursday in Taiwan. Sadly, some areas here are in need of organization like MFR. :/

  44. MichaelFromGermany on August 10, 2009 at 6:07 am

    Nice of you to try it…there pretty cool suggestions…hope it’ll work πŸ˜‰ but more important to me is that you all stay safe at this weather conditions

  45. MadMikeLP on August 10, 2009 at 5:18 am

    you should definitely do a vers from QWERTY! ’cause the hole LP community loves the songs, and we’re kinda sad that you didn’t play it live that often! or even no roads left =P

  46. LpJapanme on August 10, 2009 at 5:04 am

    dude i dunno how to rap:s

    ok so here i am back again

  47. MusicIsHealthy on August 10, 2009 at 4:51 am

    I would love to hear “Slip out the back”
    I don’t know if it’s that perfect for the POA intro, but it would be awesome to hear it live someday πŸ™‚

  48. CuteWhiteBunny on August 10, 2009 at 4:06 am

    Something you haven’t done for a while.

    Maybe Carousel?

  49. bsm on August 10, 2009 at 3:25 am

    you can do kenji!!!! i love this song!! so next timeyour in germany you can play kenji if you want to πŸ˜„ if you do it than you see me with my fort minor shit how i make party!!! πŸ˜„

  50. linkinparc on August 10, 2009 at 2:20 am

    Nobodys Listening , Nobodys Listening!

    High Voltage…

    or just write something new about earthquakes! and tsunamis…

    Like a tsunami our music is going to …

  51. abbykulyde on August 10, 2009 at 2:18 am

    woah! seems like the weather’s crazy in there huh, me too, i don’t like it when it’s raining, makes me so lazy…

    anyways, be safe guys.. and goodluck on your shows..


  52. anaPHX on August 10, 2009 at 2:16 am

    Nobody’s Listening as Intro, thats all Im asking for!

    I think the rythm is also fitting to it…and since you start with sesssion the show it would be nice to hear that song…


  53. crystalrussianla on August 10, 2009 at 1:28 am

    Lol dont bee scurred like you said in the song (its going down) whatever the weather be.lol
    sorry im late on the toppic but you’ll figure it out big boy im suer you dont need r help sexy. GodBless

  54. smallzebra on August 10, 2009 at 1:11 am

    I live in Osaka, but I had to go to school for my club activity, so I couldn’t go to Summer Sonic 09…
    I hope you made everyone who came SS09 happy : )
    Thank you guys for coming and playing in the bad weather !

  55. Theology on August 10, 2009 at 12:05 am

    Wow, there’s alot a comments on this topic. Well, I don’t know about you Mr.Shinoda, but I love it when it storms. It reminds me of when my highschool sweetheart and I use to hop in rain puddles and dance in the middle of the street. I think that’s maybe the reason as to why I still do it.

  56. inpieces27 on August 9, 2009 at 10:47 pm

    How about 26 Lettaz in da Alphabet? Just kidding. Forgotten and Dedicated.

  57. Xtr on August 9, 2009 at 9:59 pm

    Part Of Me, Dedicated or High Voltage.

    Good Luck, Mike!!!


  58. mdk on August 9, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    How was Summer Sonic? I live in Osaka but I had to work yesterday,GEEEEEEE!
    I hope you guys come back to Osaka to give us solo live like you do in Okinawa.
    Sorry for the weather….
    If you can’t fly to Okinawa because of typhoon, enjoy staying Osaka as long as you want!

  59. AndTheSunWillSetForYou on August 9, 2009 at 9:25 pm

    Before the first record you heard me on some people were trying to get me gone/ The record label were trying to sell my soul to some people who were too fucking loco/ Now I’m on top doing rhymes with Jay-Z and what not/ Mr. hot shot/ I reign supreme/ Rolling with a fat wallet and a bentley/ Boy you wish you were me/ All my career I’ve been the underdog now I’m rapping on stage with demigodz/ I got no flaw/ I’ll skin your ass raw/ And once again I’ll come out on top/ I’m sick of the pain/ Sick of your reign/ Sick of these same games that cause only pain/ You tell me there will be a new chapter and I tell you I’ll feel no different after.
    I know the first verse is on your FM album c ya

  60. Michael1904 on August 9, 2009 at 8:51 pm

    Close your eyes and pick any of these comments, because I think all of them would be cool. A lot of people seem to want older stuff. I agree, And One would be great, (“breaking a part of my heart” etc), it would be slower over the top of POA, but that adds a heavier vibe to it.

    Dedicated would also be insane. Step Up maybe?

    I also saw a recent video where you did A Place For My Head over the top. With that in mind, how about Esaul?

    Figure .09, Reading My Eyes, We Made It, Slip Out The Back… Do stop me if I’m rambling…

    Or maybe pick a rhyme you wrote when you first started rapping in school!

    I’ll shut up now.

  61. Celestial on August 9, 2009 at 8:44 pm

    They say welcome back Mike/It’s a pleasure to have ya/You da hot shit/It’s like metal to magnets/Come round the back/To the staff door access/Light up a Cuban/Spot a pig mattress/Autograph action/Sneak through the door/LP turnin’ ya peace into war/So turn the fuckin’ beat up some more/And step back pronto/Reload the combo/It’s like some Mo Wade and Marly Mal symphony rock/You could turn off the beat/And couldn’t get me to stop/I could give a fat fuck/If you with me or not/I do not give a damn/Got tracks on the Billboard/But here I am/Raisin’ hell again/And sold way past gold/Never sold my soul

  62. KOBSHI on August 9, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    The Hard Way. No reason, just wanna hear you rap it. Do it in Macao please, coz I’ll be there with you guys!

  63. Jaraldoaz on August 9, 2009 at 7:36 pm

    Despite Joseph’s post I’m gonna put this out there, It’s a short verse that I wrote a year or two ago.

    “The time ticks away

    and I have no control over the sway – of the clock


    I just flow through, niether here nor there

    I’m just wasteing my time but I don’t even care


    I just sit there watchin,not thinking or blinking,

    thats right, I’m just starin’ and bearin the pain


    Just sit like a stone and let the water pass over,

    I’m so sick and pale like the white cliffs of Dover.”

  64. Joseph on August 9, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    Just do a verse about hope, man. I feel like there’s too much negativity going around in the world today, and we could all use a little boost.

  65. linky_luvslp on August 9, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    hey mikey! you have to do this part from And One ” Breaking a part of my heart to find release, taking you out of my blood to get me peace”and then! you have to do the chorus of step up for the outro xD it will sound so awesome ilyy sxcc xxx

  66. LPdes23 on August 9, 2009 at 5:47 pm

    How about Remember The Name, da da da. Jk maybe not. I think the fans would like The Hard Way or Dedicated would be preety cool =D also the waether here is pretty bad, no joke, it’s not been summer AT ALL !! Also u mentioned a while back about getting an application for IPHONE, how is that going,?? Anyways. Good luck, and have a good show c:

  67. chic0junit on August 9, 2009 at 5:40 pm

    Opening with the last part of “And One” would be amazing! And I’m working on a verse you might be able to use πŸ™‚

  68. Aiman on August 9, 2009 at 3:51 pm

    How about the 99 problems verse from Collision Course?? ive always wanted to hear you do that one.

  69. cuz on August 9, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    “Dedicated” would be totally awesome!!! While you figure it out and play the show, maybe post some video / audio of the song? What do you think? Would be geat!

    Whatever with the weather, have a nice day πŸ™‚ Here in Poland it’s crazy this year too.

  70. DaniShinoda on August 9, 2009 at 12:45 pm

    What do you think about mix with It’s Going Down? This song is known by LP and FM fans, and like you know, the older LP fans like too much the older songs from the band. Have fun in Japan and after tell us!

  71. Dan_LP on August 9, 2009 at 12:36 pm

    Part Of Me πŸ˜€

  72. ninguem on August 9, 2009 at 12:33 pm

    i will not suggest anything πŸ™‚
    lp don’t have a new tour or record, i will let when them have a new record
    btw – the band is ok? because the earthquakes etc
    this is it

  73. Madlen on August 9, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    It would be awesome to hear Cigarettes on the intro and maybe Forgotten on the outro?How about that?:DAnyway cool nickname:D

  74. Adam on August 9, 2009 at 12:04 pm

    1 Word: Dedicated.
    That would be EPIC.

  75. locoboi on August 9, 2009 at 12:00 pm

    I wrote this, bit late but maybe you could use it for i different show
    Forced into lies,

    hate and despise,

    destroyed by your fear,

    tortured by your cries,

    trapped in one place,

    haunted by your face,

    the pain and the hurt,

    along with your disgrace,

    you took my fame,

    i took the blame,

    now all i can do is,

    Forfeit the game……

    don’t know if it’s good enough but feel free to use it πŸ™‚

  76. KATHYxx on August 9, 2009 at 11:43 am

    I love 100 Degrees
    and i’ll second Do What We Did

    EDIT: You guys weren’t in that huge-ass earthquake were you?

  77. Ewelina16 on August 9, 2009 at 11:37 am

    Maybe There They Go Mike… πŸ˜‰

    Have a great show tonight, and take some rest later on πŸ˜‰

  78. ACDalgaard on August 9, 2009 at 11:32 am

    I’d love to hear Part Of Me, since it’s my favorite song, but that probably won’t fit POA, so I’d say NOBODY’S LISTENING or STEP UP

    Edit: I agree with Adam, DEDICATED would be epic (:

  79. arandazzo060 on August 9, 2009 at 11:10 am

    hey mike do a verese from FORGOTTEN, or bring back one of those fast rap verses from the a place for my head demo ESAUL

  80. JPkaukonen on August 9, 2009 at 10:18 am

    FORT MINOR – DO WHAT WE DID 1st VERSE!! πŸ™‚ <33

  81. JNichols94 on August 9, 2009 at 9:55 am

    Write something we havent heard before? πŸ˜€
    If i was you i’d try to go with hybrid theory classic because points of authority is one of those so they’ll be a better fit. Maybe with you or forgotten?

  82. iqrah on August 9, 2009 at 9:53 am

    Heyy!! xx

    i really liked when you did Petrified & POA in Live at Milton Keynes!! that was so cool i loved that and im sure other people like that too πŸ˜€

    good luck & have fun with that show xD xx

  83. TheParanoid on August 9, 2009 at 9:43 am

    Hey Mike!
    How about Papercut or Kenji from Fort Minor?
    I think this would be something different to your other Intro’s for POA.
    Or Right Now from Fort Minor, this is one of my favourite songs.
    You have the decision πŸ™‚ PS: The Stuttgart Show was awesome! Germany loves you πŸ˜‰

  84. Eddie on August 9, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Something that the crowd would love!!!! I woke up in a dream today
    To the cold of the static, and put my cold feet on the floor
    Forgot all about yesterday
    Remembering I’m pretending to be where I’m not anymore
    A little taste of hypocrisy
    And I’m left in the wake of the mistake, slow to react
    Even though you’re so close to me
    You’re still so distant, and I can’t bring you back

    WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It would be awesome!!!!! Or….. NOBODY’S LISTENING!!!!!!! πŸ™‚ Have fun at the show!!!!!

  85. CWF on August 9, 2009 at 9:19 am

    It’d be awesome if you sang the lines of the bridge on the With You remix that goes like this: “I won’t let you control my fate while I’m holding the weight of the world of my conscience…” It’d be pretty orginal… kinda revival, hahaha.

    Cheers, man. Keep it up and rock on.

  86. Ishuda_Kun on August 9, 2009 at 9:09 am

    I tried to make the syllables count the same as the original one
    Hope ya like it! ^_^

    Taking the same phase

    walking down the same street into the same place

    Its the same Case

    A Crumpled up days

    Its the same face

    turning up the sound

    Making everyone face the ground!

  87. Aline on August 9, 2009 at 9:08 am

    ‘The Hard Way’ would be nice=))) i love these verses.
    Or you could rap lines of other songs that you’ve liked/heard recently

  88. Lvix on August 9, 2009 at 9:05 am

    Cigarettes of you’re fort minor album.
    I don’t think Dedicated can be with POA but…
    Dedicated is the best Mike Rap song i’ve ever heard.
    Nothing can beat it!!

  89. Draccer on August 9, 2009 at 8:32 am

    maybe the intro from fort minor – do what we did
    thought this part might be cool. don’t know if its too long or too short though.

    Yo, I don’t care if you’re a woman or a child or man
    When i’m done everybody’s gonna understand
    Some rappers get mad when you say they’re in a band
    But, not me
    Cause I really am
    It’s LP for your fucking information pal
    So you can stop staring back over your shoulder now
    You can stop me mugging with that twisted brow
    Concentrating on mine
    You’re wasting your time buddy

  90. Daniel on August 9, 2009 at 8:12 am

    hi Mike, Reading My Eyes or High Voltage are my choices for the intro. Surely i’ll go for a place for my head for the outro. Hope we could hear that in Macau next Sunday!!! see u there!!!! greetings from Hong Kong.

  91. michelle_chazzy on August 9, 2009 at 7:52 am

    hello,i am new here. =) so, i think hit the floor for the verse would be great.The beginning of this song is awesome.Hey!
    I HAVE A QUESTION!i just saw your latest update and i am impressed by the arts.i really want to learn drawing.But i want to know onething!you are an artist!Is artistic ability something you born with OR something that you can develop???

  92. Shinoda77 on August 9, 2009 at 7:48 am

    Finishing part of Hit The Floor could be the intro of POA and that finishing part of In Stereo would be an awesome outro i think ( i hope you get the parts i’m talking about xD). Or maybe as an intro you could use something like Hype, Madison, Montrea or Saturday and sing POA’s lyrics on it? or or or your part in Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This) would be TOTALLY awesome.

    and who is Optional Byline? xD

  93. Kalini on August 9, 2009 at 7:40 am

    Yeah, Mike92 mentioned Petrified/ POA. It was nice. What about: Get Me Gone/ Believe Me/ POA; It’s Going Down/ POA; Cure For The Itch/ It’s Going Down/ POA; No Roads Left/ Believe Me/ POA.

  94. karolp on August 9, 2009 at 7:39 am

    hm.. mike, what do you think about you sing By Myself ?? I’m sure that they’ll love it, because there’s a long time that you don’t play it !! you can sing when the music starts “What do I do to ignore them behind me? (…)” till the part that chaz stars with the chorus. After tell us what you chose !!

  95. andreas215 on August 9, 2009 at 7:05 am

    Hey Mike,
    You should start with a song “Step Up” from Hybrid Theory EP πŸ™‚
    It should look like this
    Yo, watch as the room rocks,……………………..
    …………So how does it stack up, none of it’s real
    You wanna be an emcee, you gotta study the skill
    (And then starts POA)
    Forfeit the game
    Before somebody else takes you outta the frame………

  96. msgirl on August 9, 2009 at 7:02 am

    yeah….i have no idea..but sth different would be nice……=) hope u have an awesome show…:)

  97. Maaark on August 9, 2009 at 6:54 am

    Well, let’s see… I’d love to listen to some “Right Now” verses, by Fort Minor. It’d be amazing. By the way, I’d like to ask you if you have any info about the iPod Touch/iPhone app that Linkin Park is developing. Can’t wait to finally see what it’s all about!

    Have a nice Sunday, Mike!

  98. OldDivide on August 9, 2009 at 6:52 am

    It would be awesome if you could do the first verse from “Hit the Floor” over the intro, and the first verse from “By Myself” over the outro. You guys rock, I hope you have fun with the rest of your tour. And I wish you the best of luck with making another groundbreaking album. You never fail to amaze me.

  99. ShadowerLiltani on August 9, 2009 at 6:49 am

    Maybe something from Tools of the Trade? Like the British part you do… or maybe blend the intro of TOTT into the intro of POA.

  100. Geister on August 9, 2009 at 6:26 am

    I’d like to hear By Myself over the POA intro and Dedicated over the outro
    P.S: the GrΓ€fenhainichen show was awesome!

  101. Yucker on August 9, 2009 at 6:22 am

    It would be a great idea start rapping some part of Figure.09 (i love that song) and then close POA with Forgotten… however, some stuff of FM would be cool =)

  102. Mike92 on August 9, 2009 at 6:02 am

    You did a bit of Petrifyed before POA and Hands Held High at sonisphere, the crawling instrumental you did mixed with Hands held high whats incredible. Kenji has some great lyrics in it and so does The Hard Way, both great songs from Fort Minor, I think you should do some lyrics from one of those songs, I hope to see you in the UK again soon πŸ˜€

    P.s. Never let Dead By Sunrise perform with you guys. EVER.

  103. Exosten on August 9, 2009 at 5:45 am

    Sir Mix-A-Lot ~ Baby Got Back was made for you.

  104. colinreid on August 9, 2009 at 5:34 am

    Hi Mike ( =. This is an awesome idea ( =.
    You should maybe let people do a custom setlist fan response for next yrs tour?
    Anyway I think you could maybe keep it simple like somehow use HHH Verse 1 over POA.
    With HHH Verse 2 for the outro?

    When you guys coming back to Scotland?

  105. LINKIN_PINAR on August 9, 2009 at 5:25 am

    HI MIKE !!! I hope yourJapan concerts are going well πŸ™‚ I have some ideas, I hope they help you to decide

    1) I think it would be better if you try something different… like using the first part of ” Untitled ” (which is the demo version of “in the end) I really liked the rapping parts of that song πŸ™‚

    2) Maybe you can use the first part “Part of Me” or the demo version of “By myself” (SuperXero) I guess they can both go with the overall flow of POA

    3) Or if you wanna try something slower, maybe you can try the some parts of ” She Couldn’t” or ” Easier To Run ” The first part of “With You” can also be a nice choice

    I hope they help you Mike πŸ™‚ Have a great time with your shows;)

  106. Stevie on August 9, 2009 at 5:05 am

    I’d say Remember the Name over the intro and Part of Me over the outro

    Greetz from Belgium

  107. LPmadman on August 9, 2009 at 4:48 am

    Call !! .. i pick out SHE COULDN’T RAP VERSE as well !!

    Note : LA gives kisses regards to anyone who is in Tokyo right now πŸ˜€

  108. jeffryLP on August 9, 2009 at 4:31 am

    Like my lady said !! SHE COULDN’T RAP VERSE !!! that will be awesome !!

  109. pat on August 9, 2009 at 4:25 am

    HELLOOOO!! :D:D:D i like qwerty, high voltage, with you or mayb petrified πŸ™‚ then tells us what You used byebye πŸ™‚

  110. MichelBeats on August 9, 2009 at 4:24 am

    We made it is 8 bars and Mike mostly raps 16 bars verses on POA
    my ideas are

    A Place For My Head (second verse)
    Remember The Name
    Cover and Duck
    It’s Going Down
    Be Somebody
    High Voltage
    and 2 super ideas “With You” since the raps are kinda dark wich fits the heavy guitar riff
    since the length of the verses are short you can rap the first one followed with the second one
    and Mike maybe you could if you got the time to write a new dope Verse
    this would throw everyone of guard and make the show legendary
    just a thought anyway good luck touring

    Peace Michel from landgraaf (Holland)

  111. rockermeg on August 9, 2009 at 4:22 am

    Aah yeah, I remember at Road to Revolution you did Petrified πŸ™‚ and Bloc Party towards the end…?
    Erm…something else Fort Minor πŸ˜€

  112. Crimson_Rose on August 9, 2009 at 4:03 am

    N’sL,Crawling,or sth different-In Between,No Roads Left.I’ve read,somebody’s written a verse here.I’ve written a few songs,too…I’m not sure,will You like it,but I’ll try to quote:
    ‘These high voices around me are gettin’closer to ultra frequency,all the sounds of the deepest depth are hiding in the night’s shade’;’Today I don’t wanna stay alone in my home,today I wanna sympathy to come(…)But I’ve made a mistake,I’m wrong,’cause nobody’s never told me,it won’t be so cold(…)I’m gonna be too bold to say,I’ll fight even if my soul’s torn’;’Stop this disbelief,stop pretendin’there’s no more try,feelin’like a vampire,afraid of the sun(…)still unable to go out’.D’You like it,even a bit?

  113. STINGER_LP on August 9, 2009 at 3:49 am

    Well Mike, if you want to do something different and what everybody else doesn’t expect i suggest to work around with this songs:

    1) “Mike Shinoda feat. DJ Vice – Freestyle” (i think the song has a good rap part)

    2) “Handsome Boy Modeling School – Rock And Roll (Could Never Hip Hop Like This)”

    (your hip-hop part – it’s totally awesome and i really like it, so it’ll be awesome as intro to POA)

    3) well and why not to do your verse from “We made it”?

    this is my 2 cents. I hope it would be helpful.

  114. LPBekka on August 9, 2009 at 3:47 am

    Something off Mmm…cookies would be hilarious

    …well bows as good a time as any…I have a dog on my iPod. Afraid this time. It’s so obviously Chester singing but I’m curious is it LP or from the GD days? Just thought you’d know cos I havnt come across anyone else whose heard of it

  115. Charlotte_Jay on August 9, 2009 at 3:37 am

    Mike, I think first verse of There They Go would be awesome or maybe first part of Petrified.You can also use that part of There They Go that goes: “We got this place rockin’, beat knockin’, none stopin’, If you’re all with it let me hear it now, YEAH, YO!

    Have fun with your show πŸ™‚


  116. StaticXero on August 9, 2009 at 3:37 am

    carousel would be really great (hope you still know the lyrics πŸ˜‰

  117. Zephran on August 9, 2009 at 3:27 am

    Dedicated. The song is just pure awesomeness, the lyrics are great. You should let more people here it; even if you don’t play through the whole song.

  118. Arakito on August 9, 2009 at 3:25 am

    Mike, yopu have been so long time without use Nobody’s Listening verses… this is a good change to use it!!

  119. davidkyoku on August 9, 2009 at 3:04 am

    Obviously With You or Qwerty, but it would be great if you played them apart of POA. And it would be amazing if you played the hip hop medley (step up, etc.)

  120. ThunderStrike on August 9, 2009 at 3:01 am

    How about a She Couldn’t verse? It would keep it line with 2006’s Summersonic when you debuted QWERTY and Reading My Eyes. Or maybe Right Now or Remember the Name?

    And, play Carousel. Please….:(

  121. PippoPappo on August 9, 2009 at 2:53 am

    something old… by myself, DEDICATED, a place for my head!

  122. Marie14 on August 9, 2009 at 2:49 am

    what about part of me? i think this would be great… πŸ™‚

    or hit the floor ❀ ^^

  123. erippe on August 9, 2009 at 2:35 am

    Hello,in “QWERTY” one vote. Because in Summer sonic in 06,first showed? so it’s finished with that in 09:)

  124. PasDidio on August 9, 2009 at 2:21 am

    there they go and right now

  125. Shinodabestfriend on August 9, 2009 at 2:17 am


  126. keineAhnung on August 9, 2009 at 2:08 am

    damn…it’s too late for that right? …I would have suggested cover and duck…or tools of the trade would be fun ;p

  127. Mimz_LP on August 9, 2009 at 2:03 am

    do you remember rock am ring 2004? there was like merger – step up/nobody’s listening and it’s going down ! there was a small part of these songs which were merger and it was my favorite part of the concert! so now you can do the same thing just with other songs!

  128. antje on August 9, 2009 at 1:50 am

    Intro Carousel or With you ….. Outro Hit the Floor…

    Have a nice show….!!!!

  129. MrJQ23 on August 9, 2009 at 1:31 am

    QWERTY Verse

  130. miKer0cks on August 9, 2009 at 1:22 am

    I’m voting for Forgotten or Reading my Eyes for the intro and Bloc Party or 100 Degrees for the outro. It’d be so cool and awesome! πŸ˜€ but no matter what you do, it will always be amazing πŸ˜‰ I’m sure you can think of great ideas to do on POA. You rock!!
    Have a good show! πŸ™‚

  131. qwertyyy on August 9, 2009 at 1:20 am


    Kenji would be great. It’s such an awesome and powerfull song in my opinion.
    But there’s alot more…

    Bloc Party, The Hard Way, High Road or your Verse from We made It…

  132. Elementary_Warrior on August 9, 2009 at 1:18 am

    Right Now, Dedicated, Standing In The Middle, And One ending verse, Slip Out The Back, Kenji

  133. luckyluck on August 9, 2009 at 1:14 am

    FM kenji or she couldn’t rap verse !!!! ( yeah, my baby love it !! ) It would be a superdopeSummersonic, part 2 show !!

    PS’ Tokyo is so damn lucky .. i wish i was there !!

  134. shinoda_fan on August 9, 2009 at 1:00 am

    You need to do some old school Linkin Park. Some freestyle would be cool also!!! Say hi to the band and the family for me…lol…

  135. zahra on August 9, 2009 at 12:41 am

    feel like home/part of me.REMIX…lol..was the first two that came up to my mind but. X) NO ROADS LEFT/KRWLNG remix!!!they seem to be sooooo sooooo awesome together!!!! do it do it!…PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ PLZ ITS GOING TO BE AWESOME!!! oh and i love the song dedicated !..ughhh lol sorry if my comment is mixed up!..X) X) X)

  136. hybridparanoia on August 9, 2009 at 12:28 am

    i definitely think some free-sytling wouldn’t hurt.

  137. Masterli on August 9, 2009 at 12:21 am

    Intro: Frgt/10 Outro: High Road πŸ˜‰

  138. ThePrincess on August 9, 2009 at 12:13 am

    How if you take the rap verse from SHE COULDN’T , I think it will be sounded more powerful and a bit different plus you will completely dry out the humid air there, coz many of your fans love that song !!!

    have a good time on the show later Mike πŸ˜€

  139. thenewLinkinPete on August 9, 2009 at 12:12 am

    My vote goes to NobodyΒ΄s Listening or you and Chester could do the umm “rap chorus” of Forgotten (or what do you call it, on LPA tabs they call it the rap chorus..”from the top to the bottom…”)

  140. HybridSiren on August 8, 2009 at 11:29 pm

    I remember when you did Step Up for my show back in 2007! (West Palm Beach) Was flipping amazing. ❀ Maybe do Step Up again, or maybe Forgotten or Runaway? Maybe another song from Hybrid Theory or HT EP?

  141. LPrevolution09 on August 8, 2009 at 11:26 pm

    hi mr. Shinoda, I have a great idea, if you don’t put “papercut” in the setlist, you should to sing the first verse of the song ^^ papercut is one of the best song

    or “It’s Going Down” dude

    PS: come tu Venezuela πŸ˜€

  142. boyzdontcry on August 8, 2009 at 11:24 pm

    what if a little touch of spell it out , with you or even Nobody’s Listening .. i think that will be cool !!

  143. soyuneik on August 8, 2009 at 11:17 pm

    My. Cool. Sin. No. Duh. [:D Accomplished]
    Yea, they got that one. If you want some inspiration-inspiration I’ll send you some but you’ll have to draw an alchemical circle in the middle of the floor and transmute it. I started harvesting inspiration in the form of tiny ogres that cling to my back. Its painful, yes, but you get use to it. Its the moving around that freaks me out. You forget they’re there until you get a razor claw in your spine. Edit: Yea I’m waiting on the response track. Just so long as they keep it hip-hop….oh, you meant the actual weather. ha, there are dual rainbows outside my house. It’s like an omen.

  144. Pacehemi on August 8, 2009 at 10:46 pm

    i think something like a second to none, or its going down or the Fort Minor Style, all that it would be perfect, definitly you have the best verses since Hybrid Theory

  145. Wotur11 on August 8, 2009 at 10:12 pm

    ahhh so hard for you to mix the 2nd, so hard for me to choose too πŸ™‚ i think any verse of Nobody’s listening will be dope cuz i think its beat may fit….. anyhow just do whatever you like then good luck

  146. Hawaii_LP_fan on August 8, 2009 at 10:09 pm

    Someone mentioned “Kenji” & “Nobody’s Listening” two great songs. I like those choices too. Now, if u added real taiko drums in that song, coolness! Anyway have a great time tonight!

  147. Krylon on August 8, 2009 at 10:00 pm

    The rap at the end of And One

  148. Anstice on August 8, 2009 at 9:58 pm

    Oh, High Voltage. Definitely. The first verse. The “hahas” would be awesome, too, but that would probably be too much to ask, HA. The first verse of Step Up would sound awesome as well. However, I suppose if you like to throw Fort Minor verses onto the Linkin Park set, I would go with a verse from Cover and Duck. That would be made of win. EDIT:: LMFAO. I just had the bright idea that you should do the Reanimation verse to Enth E Nd. That would pwn.

  149. Flight_by_Midnight on August 8, 2009 at 9:57 pm

    QWERTY or just play the song alone haha. Freaking love to rock to that song!

  150. JohnLP89 on August 8, 2009 at 9:49 pm

    NO ROADS LEFT! NO ROADS LEFT! The amazing things is, and I’ve followed the shows closely, nobody thinks it can be done over POA. Make it work Mike, it’ll be a true piece of art.

  151. linkin_gear on August 8, 2009 at 9:45 pm

    may be 1 stp klosr ^^

  152. FCastro on August 8, 2009 at 9:22 pm

    I’d like to see again It’s Going Down verse 1 or even something new, like Dedicated over the intro and Papercut verse 1 or 2 over outro. Thinking on Fort Minor, it’d be wonderful hear High Road, Bloc Party or Dolla. It came on my mind Second to None too… there’s lots of LP and FM songs that we wanna hear over Points
    It’s just my simple opinion…

    Good luck with this,
    FCastro (Brazil wanna see LP again)

    ps: a little parody for Dad’s Day: http://fcastro.linkinpark.com/post/member/FCastro/all/myparodyof_hhh

  153. lp_luva on August 8, 2009 at 9:17 pm

    I think some Fort Minor stuff would be sick. Maybe Slip Out the Back or Red to Black. πŸ˜‰ Good luck…

  154. splitting_the_dna on August 8, 2009 at 9:09 pm

    I’m not sure if the idea is good, but maybe – ‘Hihg Voltage’, ‘Step Up’, or ‘Dedicated’

  155. lpistheshiznik on August 8, 2009 at 8:56 pm

    I think slip out the back would be pretty sick or just create something new if your bored maybe

  156. jwbes on August 8, 2009 at 8:33 pm

    Do the verse from We Made It, that’d be ill

  157. MayJ on August 8, 2009 at 8:32 pm

    How about playing a little bit of “Nobody’s Listening”,maybe the “I got a heart full of pain…” part?
    It’d be cool for them(I am Japanese,too) to see you guys play it because Japanese shakuhachi is used for that song.You know,it’s always nice to feel that you’re related to the song:)

  158. Its_Easier_To_Run on August 8, 2009 at 8:31 pm

    I’ve had an idea probably not a great idea but i was thinking that if your looking to do something different you could use a verse a fan has written. I wrote this earlier so if you like my idea and what i’ve written then i’d love it if you used it but it’s up to you.
    Here’s what I wrote.

    What the hell is going on
    What planet you from
    Controlled by your voice for much too long
    Coming over here, tellin’ me who to be
    Pushin’ me around cuz i disagree
    Well move on
    Cuz everyone else can see
    The crowd up and down
    To the sound of LP
    This is the end
    This is it
    Everybody knows
    It’s time to..

  159. Leconte on August 8, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    Mike, blow off this rainy weather with your ‘stunning’ verse!! Any one is OK πŸ˜€

  160. Aud on August 8, 2009 at 8:30 pm

    “Dedicated,” “QWERTY,” “And One” (ending), or “Part of Me.” I think something from Songs of the Underground would be cool because not everyone would know it, but the big LP fans will. Personally, I like “Dedicated” and “Part of Me” best. Dunno if this will really help cause I have no idea what time it is where you are… it’s probably too late, but whatever. –Aud!
    [edit] Oooh… “High Voltage” would be cool, too. I’m very indecisive…

  161. badone88 on August 8, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    man if i was at that show i either wanna hear “second to none” “in stereo” “dolla” or “there they go” the first day. Thats what i would be hopping to hear just kill that shit hahah

  162. aLLey_beNNoda on August 8, 2009 at 8:00 pm

    Vote for dedicated/slip out the back.that would be awesome! Good luck 2nite, Mr.Shinoda.it’s nice to play a show in ur “hometown” right?

  163. Vlad88 on August 8, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    Intro [Dedicated verse 2] and Outro [Part Of Me verse 2] I think you play someday “Part Of Me” it’s a great song

  164. JuniorKenji2009 on August 8, 2009 at 7:50 pm

    No Roads Left – INTRO
    By Myself – OUTRO

    How about doing some FM songs since Chester is doing some DBS tracks. I’d love to hear Slip Out The Back, Kenji, Cigarettes and 100 degrees. Mike, why can’t you get more mic time than one verse here and there?

  167. Morgan on August 8, 2009 at 7:22 pm

    As many people have already said, I think either Dedicated or High Voltage… something that people haven’t heard in a while. I think the older fans will definitely appreciate the nostalgia when they hear it. Good luck tonight, Mike.

  168. RatherRed on August 8, 2009 at 7:14 pm

    I got 99 problems but a verse ain’t one!!!!

    Or any verse from “The Untitled” (In the End Demo)

  169. danielpsoad09 on August 8, 2009 at 7:13 pm

    First DEDICATED verse fits perfect over the Points INTRO.

    And, what about trying one of the ‘PART OF ME’ verses over the OUTRO ?

    Good luck !

  170. JT_Shameless on August 8, 2009 at 7:11 pm

    I got a few suggestions
    – The bridge from Figure.09 on the intro. Johnathan Davis’s verse of 1StpKlosr on the outro, start playing One Step Closer… You did well singing “Blood is pouring” that one time.
    – First verse of Figure.09 on the intro, second for the outro
    – Freestyle something that rhymes with “One step closer to the edge, I’m about to break” into the intro rap.
    – It’s Goin Down on the intro, There They Go on the outro

  171. Fanlinkinpark02 on August 8, 2009 at 7:09 pm

    you can do No Roads Left =D
    or do an old song like the first verse of With You or Forgotten…

  172. cincybmxlpfreak on August 8, 2009 at 7:06 pm

    I think “Dedicated,” “High Voltage,” or “Hands Held High” would be sweet to do before Points Of Authority. Let us know what you decide to do! πŸ™‚ Peace and Love, man. πŸ™‚ Have fun! πŸ˜€

  173. JacobHavik on August 8, 2009 at 6:54 pm

    I say By Myself over the intro and Figure 09 over the outro

  174. ravivandmikefan4life on August 8, 2009 at 6:42 pm

    Hey Mike i was wondering if u were still doing that thing where u promote online bands? Cuz i know an incredible band that needs some promotion…just wondering!

  175. dragonfreak on August 8, 2009 at 6:40 pm

    A.06 from the LPU 2 cd…great intro!

  176. flyingr on August 8, 2009 at 6:37 pm

    Nobodys listening, its going down, High Voltage (@ stuttgart was awesome), dedicated, first verse of cigaretts or maybe qwerty.

  177. AVCP333 on August 8, 2009 at 6:36 pm

    Hit The Floor or Part of Me. That would be soooooo sick.

  178. HB_DiViDe on August 8, 2009 at 6:32 pm

    Mike i would reccomend the first verse of spell it out or the hard way thats what i would want to hear if i was at the concert!!!
    (edit) or part of me!

  179. minuteforce on August 8, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    — your verse from “Points Of Authority/99 Problems/One Step Closer”. πŸ˜‰

  180. burningdaylight on August 8, 2009 at 6:25 pm

    hmmm…after thinking about it for a bit, maybe the beginning of nobody’s listening? or the intro to step up? although if you want to fit with the lyrical theme of POA you could go with the beginning of “hit the floor”…so many choices!!!! now i see why you’re open to suggestions…^_^…

  181. LcatP on August 8, 2009 at 6:15 pm

    You’ve done petrified with it already.. which I love btw πŸ™‚ idk if you want to do something diff from that..
    qwerty ??
    part of me??
    lol just throwing some stuff out there. I’m probably late either way.
    Whatever you do I’m sure the fans will love πŸ™‚

  182. CoLOrBLiNd on August 8, 2009 at 6:11 pm

    Maybe you should do a little freestyle πŸ™‚

  183. Astat on August 8, 2009 at 6:01 pm

    Slip Out the Back, Right Now, Standing in the Middle, Dedicated…

  184. mraznxcrazyxboi on August 8, 2009 at 6:00 pm

    Remember the Name for the intro of points of Authority and the Outro use No Roads left

  185. Philly_Willy on August 8, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    Your verse from “Cover and Duck” from the We Major Mixtape

  186. Brandon on August 8, 2009 at 5:34 pm

    The first verse of Step Up fits perfectly. Both verses of Qwerty together or both verses of Forgotten together also work well. The second verse of Papercut could also work over the outro if the mood ever so struck you.

    And I think it’s awesome you’re asking for some input from the fans! Thanks Mike!

  187. x_TAH_z on August 8, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    sup mike..if you reaLLy want somethin diffrent iLL say go with the 1st verse of “where’d you go”..
    im not so sure if ya’LL Like it but i think it wiLL give ya a chaLLenge..start wit the piano intro of whered ya go that’s gona be sang by chester..then do your rap line then sLowLy pLay the POA sound whiLe your rappin..i hope yaLL feeL me..its Like you are rappin wit frustration then pLays POA..i hope yaLL be up wit the chaLLenge!! good Luck homies!!

  188. sasummsumm on August 8, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    something from the mmmhh cockies CD
    OF COURSE !!!! ;D HAHA

  189. freak_yellow on August 8, 2009 at 5:13 pm

    Hi Mike, thats a very interresting question, I would think about the first or second verse in Qwerty, the first verse of High voltage or the verse youre doing in spray paint and ink pens, thats pretty much it, have a nice show mate.

  190. JSR on August 8, 2009 at 5:12 pm

    Any part of Dedicated, Step Up, or It’s Going Down would be awesome.

  191. Joe_LP on August 8, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    Good night Mike,

    With all your respect, the first step should be change the setlist, this setlist is really boring and lack of rock. Why don’t you guys bring songs like with you, f.09, forgotten, by myself, etc.
    My humble request is, sing the first verse of Figure .09 over POA… or any song off linkin park, for example any song from Snoop dogg, dr dre or your favorite rapper.
    I got an amazing idea. for the next tour in 2010 why dont you guys let ppl to choose the songs to play, or let ppl make 3 different setlists and the best ones or the most posible sets to play will win.
    thanks, we love you.

  192. thekyan on August 8, 2009 at 5:08 pm

    that would be dope.

  193. Elliot_aka_MC_Eli on August 8, 2009 at 5:07 pm

    Dedicated/Step Up/ It’s Going Down/

    High Voltage for sure!

  194. Reanitheory1 on August 8, 2009 at 5:06 pm

    Over intro, maybe the qwerty verses (rap first one, and when you get to the end of that verse, start doing the second one), or standing in the middle.

    For the outro, I’d love to see hit the floor or something

  195. Ana_ on August 8, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    Hum… Maybe your first verse in “Remember The Name”. Or “Get Me Gone.” πŸ™‚ Ana. P.S.: Well, it seems that only on Wednesday time will change and be better. You’re not lucky! Lol :p

  196. ALivingGrudge on August 8, 2009 at 5:04 pm

    How about the rapping bridge in the Crawling Demo? That’d be bad ass.

  197. niabai20 on August 8, 2009 at 5:02 pm


  198. Hybr1d_7h3ory on August 8, 2009 at 5:01 pm

    Dedicated would be tight. How about your verse from “Cover and Duck”?

    Ive heard some of the intros and outros. Its a small change that make such a big impact on a crowd.

    Keep on kickin ass. Lets the other LP guys know we appreciate all the effort you put into these shows.

    Catcha ya later Mike…Will

  199. Iris on August 8, 2009 at 4:54 pm

    dedicated or by myself !

  200. Jen1210 on August 8, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    Step Up verse 1!

  201. Linkinboss on August 8, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    i would like with you verse 1 for the intro then Reading my eyes, or maybe something that you hadn’t played before (something from old songs like dedicated, forgotten, figure.09, nobody’s listening, part of me

  202. Its_Easier_To_Run on August 8, 2009 at 4:35 pm

    1st verse of It’s Goin’ Down? or 1st verse of Forgotten? I can’t really think of anything else that would fit and that is different

  203. DJWillias on August 8, 2009 at 4:33 pm

    figure.09 / by myself / forgotten or the fuckin awesomes ESAUL ORyour part of the handsome boy modeling school “rock-and-roll-could-never-hip-hip-like-this-part-2” :p ? =)
