Today, Phoenix, Chester, and I wrote a song so awesome it vaporized Chester’s arm.
Unfortunately, you’ll never hear it. we don’t want to risk any fans getting vaporized.
(I did not edit this photo)
Aisha on April 3, 2010 at 6:26 pm
Cool!! How did you guys do that?? I’m guessing Chester waved his hand too fast for the camera to shoot it. lol, you guys are having wayyyyy too much fun in the studio! That’s one thing we won’t be able to experience when we hear the new album cus that is soooo cool! I hope we can hear the song!
SteppinRazor on April 1, 2010 at 8:10 am
I guess the awesome combination of Mother Saraswati and Chester Bennington is too much for modern technology (ie/ your camera) to handle.
sumit on March 6, 2010 at 7:21 am
chester’s getting vaporised……are u guys aliens.????????????
BTW do you believe goddess Saraswati.? she’s the hindu god for music,arts and knowledge.
Sarah on January 29, 2010 at 11:14 am
OMG, that must have been a killer song! I always kind of thought that Chester was too awesome to get vaporized, so this song must have kicked some @$$! PLEASE Mike, let us here it… and if it does happen to vaporize us, you guys are totally worth being vaporized for! I love u guys! LONG LIVE LINKIN PARK! LONG LIVE MIKE SHINODA! =D
BennOda on January 21, 2010 at 7:47 pm

MarishkaLP on September 20, 2009 at 7:55 am
ahahahaa Chester looks like a monster! i’m sure you don’t want your fans become monsters!
AndyJ on September 19, 2009 at 10:53 am
Thats the Hindu Goddess Saraswati if im not wrong. BTW, im an Indian. Are you really influenced by Hinduism?? Please detail!!
Parvathi_g on September 19, 2009 at 10:00 am
Heyy what will Chazz do now?? He’s a lefty!!…..what song did u guys write??it must be really out of the ordinary!!

1sai163 on September 18, 2009 at 8:33 pm
hey mike. i was wondering if you guys are actually hindu cuz i see tha tpicture in the back of a very well-known hindu god……let me know more on this……i would like to know a lot
Giordanno92 on September 18, 2009 at 5:09 pm
I need to know how to make songs like these…
sabry_br on September 18, 2009 at 3:41 pm
I’m very very very veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery scared of LP right now o.O and I’m scared of that picture on the wall too…
linkinparkette on September 18, 2009 at 7:21 am
maybe chester is half vampire and half human!
i knew it!!! :D
LPfan_mar on September 18, 2009 at 3:54 am
LOL… I hope chester can sing without arm… It’s so funny!
karolp on September 17, 2009 at 4:53 pm
ahahahahahhaha are you privating us to have the arms vaporized ?? why ?? I want too !! :) no, I believe you didn’t edit the photo.. sometimes it happens when the people are moving.. ;) well.. bye bye !! I hope the process of the new album are being cool !! kisses from brazil ;*
ShiroiKarasu on September 17, 2009 at 8:33 am
awesome Mike! it’s to bad we can’t hear that song
junko1014 on September 17, 2009 at 7:57 am
I don’t want to scare you guys, but this pic means Chester should be careful of his left arm. His ancestors tell him that he might hurt his left arm in the near future. There’s kind of a superstition in Japan. Hope he doesn’t have any trouble. Knock on wood!!!
xtanislava on September 16, 2009 at 11:00 pm
Hey Mike, if there is a cartoon character you would voice, who would it be?
WidyaRahayu on September 16, 2009 at 8:17 pm
you did not edit that photo, did you set the camera on the slowest speed?
Justbiteme9 on September 16, 2009 at 3:05 pm
Awesome, can’t wait for the nex album. I don’t mind to lose an arm or someting, you know?, I want to listen the song… (Fangirl on)Just, please, don’t make Rob desappear (Fangirl off).
Maaark on September 16, 2009 at 2:50 pm
Phoenix’s pic is really cool! I’m so curious about this song. I don’t think I’d care about my arm getting vaporized if you let me listen to the song. HA!
Chester looks funny and trust me, it’s not because of the missing arm.
Take care Mike!
Sintia on September 16, 2009 at 10:28 am
Luv the pics Mike!! I know that it can’t be ALL WORK & no play in the studio (or anywhere ya’ll are). man, you should know that when you blog that any of you wrote an awesome song that WE would want to hear it even if has a CAUTION or DANGER effect to it. lol Keep us updated on how the writing or disappearing acts you are all doing in the studio. I hope you LP & your families are doing good, in gr8 health, & are happy. Take Care
vickylp on September 16, 2009 at 8:48 am
chester look awesome in this pic, even he is getting vaporized! lol
Sophia on September 16, 2009 at 8:46 am
ths pic about chaz is really cute and funny,lol

TheLPFreak on September 16, 2009 at 6:14 am

ThunderStrike on September 16, 2009 at 2:35 am
If a song is so awesome that it vaporized Chester’s arm, I wanna hear it, even if it means being vaporized myself! And Phoenix looks as if he’s gonna hit you with his bass the moment you finish clicking xD
Lastly, if you have a framed photograph of the Indian goddess Saraswati, WHY DON’T YOU COME HERE?!?!?
liope on September 16, 2009 at 2:28 am
I guess people now will understand that beeing an artist is a hard and dangerous job!! :P Hey that godness behind Chester may can help! She can borrow him one of her hands!!
Aditya_the_warrior_within on September 16, 2009 at 1:24 am
ya he just put his arm inside his t-shirt and blur effect ! :P :)
ya its the pic of the Hinduism and Indian Goddess of Knowledge Saraswati !!
wow ! didn’t know you gous are in other cultures too ! :)
COOL ! (feels more proud to be an Indian) :D
Ezza on September 16, 2009 at 1:13 am
hmmm so you just proved that u “can rock a rhyme” so good that it actually does “neutralise the cellular structure of the human body” lol awesome XD suck on that critics!!!! hahahaahahaha
rads on September 15, 2009 at 11:22 pm
Picture of Goddess Saraswati Behind Chester?? oh cool
Kenvy on September 15, 2009 at 8:45 pm
LoOOOOLl, Chester just put his arm into his shirt.
ShadowerLiltani on September 15, 2009 at 8:10 pm
I’m just curious as to what Chester was doing, that got him to strike such an interesting pose. I’m also surprised you’ve allowed a picture of Phoenix onto your blog, even if the war is over.
ThePrincess on September 15, 2009 at 7:55 pm
Apparently you have the talent to be a Magician Mike , you can make Chester’s hands disappeared !! Awesome ( but Next time please put a Pic of my Bearded Hero too , Yes sir , I need ‘it’ to reduce my daily stress a bit ;) !! ) anyway I want to hear that vaporized song !! ( I will accept any risk is caused by ! ) so can you put that , in ur Music Box ??
semptyment on September 15, 2009 at 7:41 pm
accidentally, it shows that picture of the Hinduism god figure(i guess) behind him…
AlvinBoo1 on September 15, 2009 at 6:53 pm
Haha OMG that is AWESOME!! & I <3 the whole "Vaporize the Masses" title… if you don't use it for the next LP album, you could always use that for your next Fort Minor album, Mike! That would totally be dope!
Congrats on beating Pheonix! Atleast now we know for sure Art School graduates can outwit UCLA ones! lol, granite Pasadena’s more CREATIVE, so naturally i guess that’d make sense.
Oh, BTW CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SON, MIKE! BOTH YOU AND ANNA! HE IS BEAUTIFUL. And will have one very awesome daddy to help show him the ropes!
&, can we send in the $ for your raffle tickets? or do we physically have to be at the show? In NY, can’t exactly make it to Cali :( THX!
Manongross on September 15, 2009 at 6:21 pm
OMG, but the VOICE are ok? hehehe He still has the other hand to hold the microphone… Mike carefully with your compositions, we want see all integrants of band… ^^’ Mike, please answer me, i can use of your arts in my guitar?
Gerardo on September 15, 2009 at 5:50 pm
hahaha..so awesome….Chester is disappearing haha….
cuz on September 15, 2009 at 5:06 pm
Awesome! I’m not afraid of getting vaporized. You can test on me, ha!
cincybmxlpfreak on September 15, 2009 at 4:27 pm
OMG!!! ROFL!! That’s probably one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen and read! You guys have the potential to become terrorists!!! If you unleash that song on the world, you will vaporize the masses!! Hey! That should be the name of your next record “Vaporize The Masses.” :-P
CarolYvLP on September 15, 2009 at 4:14 pm
HAHA awesome mike!
merve on September 15, 2009 at 3:56 pm
he is so damn fast!! also if you shot this pic then you are fast too..or just lucky!
PinkyLouloulp on September 15, 2009 at 3:04 pm
Nooooo! Bring back Chester’s arm you music monsters!
mike_n_LP_4ever on September 15, 2009 at 3:01 pm
Aha, Chester looks like he’s having a lot fun there. XD It’s either what you said about the song, or the song doesn’t like Chester. ;) Im sure the song does; who doesn’t? :)
Have you ever played the Ouija board? If you haven’t, you should. :P
JRock4589 on September 15, 2009 at 2:29 pm

TiffTiff33LP on September 15, 2009 at 2:26 pm

pink_skull on September 15, 2009 at 1:18 pm

ArtMakesMe on September 15, 2009 at 1:05 pm
i’ll bet ya we’d still get to hear the song after a few years or so….i really don’t think it’s going to be kept a hiddin song forever :)
Eddie on September 15, 2009 at 1:02 pm
Madlen on September 15, 2009 at 12:44 pm
That’s a pretty unique picture:DIt’s good to know that the new songs are that awesome:D
PatrickM on September 15, 2009 at 11:54 am
Lol ! Poor Chester :)
pat on September 15, 2009 at 11:22 am
ahahah crazy moment of chester :D
rockermeg on September 15, 2009 at 11:15 am
You can sorta see a vague outline…
No way! I want to hear a song that awesome >_<
LcatP on September 15, 2009 at 11:13 am
Shits trippy.. but tight none the less :).. and I don’t mind getting my arm vaporized :)
JanV13 on September 15, 2009 at 11:13 am
I don’t really care what happens to Chester’s arm as long as his vocal chords are fine :)
Is this the song u wer talkin bout couple of days ago, u know, the one that sounds like Queen…..Well, i think I’d give up my arm (preferably left) to hear it :D
Btw, which of you worship Goddess Saraswati (whose pic’s in d background)? Cool; i din’t know LP’s part Hindu ;)
Kiara on September 15, 2009 at 10:09 am
We want a vaporized arm too!
We won’t tell anyone where did we got it!
Please! We want to hear the song! :D
durg on September 15, 2009 at 9:32 am
hahaha thats amazing.. was he dancing?? XD
oh & mike, you should check out todays teefury shirt, im buying it, haha
big_bad_lukas on September 15, 2009 at 9:31 am
how is chester gonna play on the guitar now? DAMN!
thenewLinkinPete on September 15, 2009 at 8:49 am
On the new Muse cd all they wrote was the 11 songs that are on it, and nothing more, which sounds risky, but they made it (and so far it seems really interesting). Do you think LP will stay working on this system where you (apparently) write tons of seeds to pick from? Or make a concept album or somehow otherwise create it from one carrying idea? (or how is it with the new one?). Now, it seems you´ve created something too dangerous! =P Can´t wait for the album!
Wotur11 on September 15, 2009 at 8:26 am
lol you guys didnt know, i came there in spirit and downed chaz’s arm :)) ily keep rocking ;D
anaPHX on September 15, 2009 at 7:36 am
good to see that you are having fun recording the album.
It is really mean to mention a new song and to say it wont be every released in the same sentence….You make us first really hyped, then confused, sad and angry…
please dont =D
its like showing meat to hungry lions and then to pull it off…..
XxbrokenangelxX on September 15, 2009 at 7:28 am
:O Their is a photo of one of our Hindu Gods.
Koool! thats why i love you guys! Respect for every religion.
miKer0cks on September 15, 2009 at 7:24 am
WTF? OMLP!!!! o.O Wow!!!
PS. Phi managed to get to the studio huh? he was tweeting yesterday on his way to the studio, telling us he got stuck in traffic and he’s late for the meeting! LOL
Joanie_LP on September 15, 2009 at 6:52 am
WHAT THE FUCK, MAN! o.o
penholder on September 15, 2009 at 6:38 am
Hey, since it’s a LP-song, I wouldn’t care about a missing arm ;)
LPAssociationDerek on September 15, 2009 at 6:37 am
Hey Mike, reported this on my site lpassociation.com; I think you’ll like how I wrote the news post haha.
Btw, when are we going to interview you? :P
allhailmike on September 15, 2009 at 6:23 am
ubercool. that Hindu GOD over there wanted to be there too i guess or italicwhoever edited the picitalic worships her.
aplacetorest on September 15, 2009 at 6:16 am
Maybe you can release it with a disclaimer? haha. I got the rest of my decks today!!! :)
I wish i was there for the show to have you sign them though, maybe you should do a traveling art show next time? i live in CT, so i couldnt make it all the way out to CA :(. Food for thought? Let us know!
PankakeMunky on September 15, 2009 at 6:13 am
not only are you touching fans with your music (new and old), you’re creating crazy war-material weapons. i knew you guys weren’t just making music all the time…
boyzdontcry on September 15, 2009 at 6:10 am
Hey my man Phoenix !! cool … anyway I think Goddess Sarawati who carries the veena just eat chester’s hand .. scary !!!
ribbe on September 15, 2009 at 6:09 am

Reenzy on September 15, 2009 at 6:06 am

Oh,that’s how those supernatural photos came out..OK~trust you,mike~~but could you tell me what was chester doing when you took this photo??and..phoenix is so cute~haha~

Lvix on September 15, 2009 at 4:35 am

Shinodabestfriend on September 15, 2009 at 4:32 am
ahahahahaha aaaw I love you guys xD and can’t wait to be vaporized from LP! LOL
lucky_cat on September 15, 2009 at 4:27 am
Ahhh, don’t worry! It’s just the Hindu god who didn’t allow to be covered in the picture, so he vaporized the arm! Well, what about the song? ;)
liuliu on September 15, 2009 at 4:18 am
Awesome~!pls let me vaporize~ XD
Leconte on September 15, 2009 at 3:57 am
You guys are tooooooo hot!! I listened to ‘Fire’ by DBS twice today. Can’t wait for LP’s new songs!
CuteWhiteBunny on September 15, 2009 at 3:49 am
Was Chester waving his arm really really fast at the time? Just asking.
I would love to hear the song. I don’t care if I get vaporized.
Thanks for the update, Mike.
Rex on September 15, 2009 at 3:45 am
LOL that reminds me of the song Step Up. Now with this new sound weapon, you can change it to”The true master vaporizes his opponent, leaving him vulnerable to attack.”
spaniel on September 15, 2009 at 3:33 am
Is Chester need in 2nd arm? For what? He can hold microphone in single hand! (joke)…By the way I just hit on ridiculous video about microphone: http://video.mail.ru/mail/polan50/76/1233.html
MARI_SABEL on September 15, 2009 at 2:59 am
i think Phoenix knows where is the Chester’s arm)
we must ask him)))
gaby_ on September 15, 2009 at 2:55 am
O_O the picture is creepy xDDDDDDD too creepy xDDDD c’mon mike we want to hear the song xD
Illara on September 15, 2009 at 2:41 am

Dori on September 15, 2009 at 2:14 am
hahaha awesome! Phi’s like, “I’m the shit and I know it!” lol
exia_7 on September 15, 2009 at 2:03 am
there’s something wrong with you guys! however it’s probably an over dose of being who you are. Whatever that means!
786khadija on September 14, 2009 at 11:43 pm
Dr Shinoda, are you sure it was your music ? Could it have been that the Hindu god was hungry ? or perhaps that little Dalek (cleverly disguised as a waste receptacle) was the real reason for the vaporisation ? Just a suggestion ;) Shouldn’t be much of a problem, you can just get Mr Hahn to CGI him a new one.
P.S. Not Dalek the artist, I meant the things from Dr Who!
twilight_LP on September 14, 2009 at 11:37 pm
Wait, where did Chester’s vaporized arm go?? On top of Phoenix’s head? Ah well- it could have been worse- at least he can still sing, right…? Or has his voice vaporized too? If it has, I wouldn’t be suprised if Chaz killed you, not to mention the fans:(
Let us hear the awesome ‘Chester evaporates’ music then, Mike:) I’m willing to take the risk…LOL
deadzeezorn on September 14, 2009 at 11:09 pm
dude ,, u r so funny … hhahah dave the loser in the war .. and chester without arm .. he was Rockin and .. thnx mike for being thoughfull about our saftey ..
zee/ the only fan from sudan
ladypingping on September 14, 2009 at 10:59 pm
Must have been one helluva song! You should post a video of the song instead, maybe the internets shields the vaporization just a little.
msgirl on September 14, 2009 at 10:54 pm
haha so funny!=) omg!that’s really strange!=)chester was so excited that even camera can’t capture well!so i think we should listen to the song!=) cuz WE want to vaporize like Chazz! MIKEY!pleaaase!=)
The_Black_Hawk on September 14, 2009 at 10:45 pm

pepper on September 14, 2009 at 10:23 pm
Silly Chester, always vaporizing his appendages =P
Celestial on September 14, 2009 at 10:03 pm
This is almost as disturbing as Hostel.
murry on September 14, 2009 at 9:49 pm
YO, MIKE, I’M REALLY HAPPY FOR YOU, I’M GONNA LET YOU FINISH, BUT BEYONCE HAD ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME. OF ALL TIME.
joelle1984 on September 14, 2009 at 9:44 pm

Moepi on September 14, 2009 at 9:39 pm

greetings from Germany ;)
linkinladie328 on September 14, 2009 at 9:37 pm
hahahahaha… that’s awesome :]
lp_fm_fan on September 14, 2009 at 9:35 pm
LMAO! Poor Chester…..and poor us, never get to hear it D:
Phoenix was late getting there wasn’t he? haha.
I’m glad y’all are having fun recording! :) I wish it was that easy to do some homework! XD
Jurh on September 14, 2009 at 9:34 pm
I’m glad to see you guys back in the studio working in new ideas!! that’s cool!
Umi on September 14, 2009 at 9:33 pm
Poor guy… he put so much time in having his arm inked and wasn’t even done with that (as far as he once said somewhere) and now it’s all gone :( but it could’ve been worse… just imagine it would’ve shrinked him or sth so he would look like that now:
cute, but too small to be seen by the crowd when u guys are on stage and HA! while I’m typing this, KROQ plays Bleed It Out :D
(now, that was a witty way to give myself a reason to link this picture here, wasn’t it?) But good to hear ur still working and not just fooling around on the internet lol
chazdrummer on September 14, 2009 at 9:31 pm
hey mike, greetings from monterrey, mexico!!, well 4 u guy it is worth been vaporized xD, i hope u can come here someday, bye!
Curiosa on September 14, 2009 at 9:22 pm
Dude! if you were on twitter right now you’d be able 2 hear SixxJohn live streaming working on his new album. It’s sounding really DOPE!
I’ll comment later on this blog. :P TC
Edit: lmao I love Dave’s photo & how fast did chester move his arm that it disapeared? lol That was a slow shutter speed. lol Nice 2 see u guys are back in the studio. Too bad we can’t hear you cough livestreamtwittercough :D Good night. lol
zahra on September 14, 2009 at 9:19 pm
omg …HAHA..lol…..then u guys seem to be haveing fun….take care!//….HAVE FUN…dont kill ur selves tho…whats with the lost arm!????plz tell me u edited that picture just to make me feel better/./haha…good night…bye
soyuneik on September 14, 2009 at 9:12 pm
So that’s where this arm came from? Figures.
TIDE: Btw I have something for you and I assure it it’s about as far as I can get away with standard fan based content. Or maybe that’s objective? Aye. When in doubt, actions speak louder than words.
JoeyDC on September 14, 2009 at 9:07 pm
I guess that’s a risk I am willing to take ;). This song just needs to be heard! I guess Chester moved his arm so fast in excitement that the digital camera was way too slow to capture it ;).
eandy on September 14, 2009 at 9:06 pm
hoho xD nice photos Mike :) I hope that you have good time at studio :)
