Welcome To MikeShinoda.com

January 18, 2010

Welcome to mikeshinoda.com.

This where I write and post about what’s going on day-to-day in my world, including what’s new with the band, various art and other projects I’m involved in, tips for musicians about how to record and promote your material, exciting art that I’ve come across, and various other cultural tidbits that I hope you’ll find entertaining and informative.

Here are the basics: I try to post on the BLOG as often as my schedule allows.  The comments section under each post is open to your ideas and reactions.  By the way, I like to respond to your comments from time to time. I don’t respond to thoughtless, mean, or generic stuff, so keep it smart.  Don’t spam in the comments section–if you posted once and nobody responded, move on. If the character limit here seems confining to you, you can start a thread on the Linkin Park Message Board (and maybe comment here on MS.com with a link to your thread, so everyone can check out what you have to say).

You’ll find images of my art shows–plus collaborations and other art I’ve done here.

Portions of proceeds in the STORE benefit Music For Relief. Check the item description for details.

I’m very grateful for those of you who link to mikeshinoda.com when you enjoy an image or post. All I ask is that you credit this site when you re-post or link, and don’t crop the pictures if you can help it.

The things I put here are my thoughts and opinions, not necessarily those of the rest of the band.

Thanks for visiting, see you soon.

    Hey Mike my name is Skye and I wanted to say thank you for inspiring me to become a musician as well, all my life since I was three years old I have been listening to you guys. The music you created as a group helped during my childhood and it felt like someone understood. I honestly don’t know if you’ll read this but if you do thank you for taking the time I hope someday I can afford to come to a concert in the Los Angeles area I know that you guys are busy to please us fans so for everybody I think I can say Thank you Mike I appreciate your hard work and I’ll listen and bumb you guys till I die Linkin Park for life!!!! 🙂

    You waited for someone all your life and when she/he came you don’t even notice that she/he tried to reach you for days now. The wiseman point at the moon, the idiot look at finger…

    Hey Mike, Ive tried getting in contact with you on twitter and on soundcloud to ask your permission to use your beat Hive and publish it to my fanbase with my recorded verse on it, then I noticed it said to let you know here if you sing or rap on your beats so here is the link, let me know what you think. You’ve been a big influence to me and many of my fans say that I remind them of you in the way I rap so thank you for your influence -Tr^veler https://soundcloud.com/8traveler/hive-prod-mike-shinoda-of-linkin-park

    Hi Mike, I’ve been a fan since I first heard you guys. But who isn’t? The real reason I’ve tracked you down is because I got a message from you on fb, asking if I was an artist. Well this is my last effort to reach you, as all others have failed. Yes, I am an artist, or at least I was. Now I’m just trying to re-light my creative spirit. It’d be amazing to chat to say the least. I’m on fb, Instagram: heatherorheathen and Flickr heather1545 hope you get this!

  5. crazyharshal13 on July 2, 2015 at 7:40 am

    Hi Mike,
    I would really like to hear a rap by Chester and vocals by you in a song and also a collaboration with another favourite artist “Marshall Mathers”.

  6. glzphoenix on May 11, 2015 at 4:26 am

    Hey Mike.

    I create a lot of my own music and instrumental tracks and recently tried a remix. I used the acapella version of Fort Minor’s “Remember The Name” and created my own instrumental. Surprisingly, the end result came out to be much better than I expected, and I am convinced that you would enjoy hearing it for yourself if you ever get the chance. I was wondering if there was any possible way I could send you this and see what you think. I would contact you myself but I am unaware of any means of doing so. Please contact me when you have a moment. My email is gavin.zane@yahoo.com and I check it periodically throughout the day. Thank you so much.

  8. johnofoi on February 25, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Hi Mike,
    I got a track for you and if you are interested than you
    can get through me on jnash@gmail.com and you can have it.

    Thanks bro, ROCK ON!!

    Hi Mike.

    Not sure if you will get a chance to read this or not.
    I saw Linkin Park with backstage passes recently. During the meet and greet the sharpie used to sign the item I had brought was dried out when one of the band members signed it. Chester was the last band member to sign it and hit the sharpie on his scooter so he was able to sign it. One of the autographs is a little faded, I don’t mean to be rude or anything. Linkin Park is my favorite bands and I was hoping to see if I could send it to you to have re-signed so it is complete and can be displayed in full.

    Hope Chester is recovering well.

    With Kind Regards.

    Hello ,
    Greetings and all the best from Romania- Bucharest.
    I send to you a video of a guitarist from here, wich was with his band opening act for Linkin Park here.Hope you like it. He deserve more that it is here, in Romania.

  11. capellalya on December 19, 2014 at 3:26 pm

    Hello Mike, could ask you for a favor ? I need your help, can you help me with assigment? Only it if you want to of course. Would you help me design a logo Pasific Petrol Company? I really appreciate any help you can provide. I love you. Sincerely;Kübra

  12. dashasmile on November 3, 2014 at 10:23 am

    Good evening, Mr. Mike Shinoda.
    I have a question for you. Will the new song from Linkin Park? If so, please reply me on Facebook, and if not too answer.

  13. Norl on May 27, 2014 at 9:25 am

    I have listened to Linkin Park songs over time, which I like a number of them from different albums. They are mash up music of different genres, which is a classic signature of the band. I believe that Linkin Park embraces change to move forward to greater heights so it would be the next level for the band to incorporate various musical genres into their music such as New Age, classical, jazz, blues, techno etc which is a deserving challenge to undertake. Linkin Park is an experimental band pushing the music frontier that could pull it off. All the best! – Norl, Singapore

  14. bobbysandez on May 25, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    Hi Mike,I want you to know a band called Atmosphere cause i know that you will start Fort Minor so it will be great that you check them out and maybe collab with them for a new FM Album

  15. pedropaulolp on May 13, 2014 at 9:25 am

    Hello Mike, I want you to give me a hint, because I’m trying to form a band, and I wanted to know where to start.

  17. darkyboy07 on April 13, 2014 at 10:24 pm

    Hi mike! First time i write it the feeling is awesome even if you don’t reply this awesome, anyways, so i love the new style i love every album, have you ever thought of a song about trust is important? You know like in relationships, friendships etc., would be awesome and second questions is, will 8 bit have updates? Is a pretty cool game, i bought it last week but i didn’t see anyone, i know you are busy to update the game but if it happens it would be awesome, keep the good work! Greetings from México!

  18. fredgayle on March 26, 2014 at 6:12 pm

    Hi mike,

    I’m a big fan of you, and when I knew that you will be in Montreal this year I buy 3 tickets. One for me, of course, and the others for my young brothers and young sister. they have respectively 17 and 14 years old. I buy the best one who left, the VIP deluxe (I wanted the meet and greek one, but after 2 days, It was already sold out! Dam!). The fact is that my brother have a kidney’s diseases. He have just one of them, and it work only at 40%. Really stable now, but he don’t must to have a shock in his back. My question is, it is secure to go see your show, if we take in considaration that I have the VIP ticket?
    If you had the time, just let me know … Thanks for the help.

  19. rtkiii on March 12, 2014 at 10:42 am

    My comment was too long and would not let me put in the YT link.

    Here you go.

    Thanks and keep the great music coming!

  20. rtkiii on March 12, 2014 at 10:41 am

    Hey Mike!
    Just wanted to say I really enjoy what you have done with Fort Minor. I started hearing it on my Linkin Park station on Pandora this past year and I am really enjoying the album as a whole. One day I was listening to Pandora when “Kenji” came on and BOOM…I was inspired! This song is simply one of the best songs i have heard and I’m 37 years old 🙂 I dabble in short films and 2D music videos as a hobby and when I heard “Kenji” I knew I had to do something with it. I ended up creating a Kinetic Typography Music video set to it. I would be honored if you would give it a watch sometime and let me know what you think.

  21. melibb14 on March 7, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    hi mike, I’m Melina of Argentina. I’m 14 years old and 5 years ago I am fan of Linkin Park and Fort Minor. I write with the intention to greet and congratulate you for the great work you are doing with the other members of LP, I became crazy when you hear ‘Guilty all the same’ is an amazing song and I can not wait to hear the full album. wanted you to know I love each of your work, and I share your same passion for art. are my biggest inspiration, and also you are to me the man that every girl dreams of getting married someday. My biggest dream is to meet you. You are amazing. I hear your voice free from the depression many times and am proud of being a ‘soldier’. i love you♥

    Hi Mike,
    I’m Rambod. I am an 17 years old artist. I draw for 7 years. whatever come in my hand I draw. but mostly, Abstract, Expressionism and mixedmedia.
    However, I saw your works. I really really really want to show my art works to you and talk about art with you (ghost_bloody666@yahoo.com). Since I travel to Australia, I really try hard to get experiences and improve myself.
    Please, Is it possible to talk? please…
    I wish that day comes true…

  25. chris7juan on December 11, 2013 at 9:30 pm

    Mike this is continuation of my previous comment.

    Rising up in the pride of comrades
    standing up against the barricades
    I fight so hard, knowing I’ll never succeed
    I chose my will to die with honor

    I dream a day
    I dream a day
    I dream a day
    I dream a day
    I dream a day
    I dream a day

    A day…
    when peace fly up in the sky
    as the doves from heavens
    a day…
    when freedom is free on this earth
    filled up in the air it bears

    I dream the day
    I dream the day
    I dream the day
    I dream the day
    I dream the day
    I dream the day

    Wish you read it mike. I’m waiting your reply.

  26. chris7juan on December 11, 2013 at 9:25 pm

    Mike this lines are a tribute for you guys.

    It’s so hard to breathe
    I’m fed up by living dead
    don’t want to run anymore
    Coz, it’s not a worthy try

    I stand below the roaring guns
    living with fear and tear
    where my brothers bleed to death
    fighting hard to save my breath

    Lives fall like withered leaves
    leaving not a sign they existed
    I know, I can’t never end this war
    blocking the cannons with my hands

    I don’t have any options left
    to be alive as the time drifts away
    I walked up above the hill
    with a will too hard to change

    Sorry mike number of characters are over. I’l continue in next comment.

    From one intuitive mind to another, you can already assume that there are too many ways of trying to approach your attention. Mike, There is a small speck of life is this discombobulated mess hall that knows your theory, understands your passion. You are the man being the mirror, the sole proprietor of creativity and design for your band. Note this, there is a difference between the fans you entertain and the fans that understand you. There is a substantial difference between sides, I just want to have a word with you about my personal ambitions. Idolization is an understatement, in the most non-creepy and most professional way, I understand you.
    -Aaron Barlow

    Hey, Mike. Are you going to come to Ukraine this year? You’ve been there last year, in Odessa and you guys ROCK! 🙂 Another thing is that we wanted to know how you guys actually choose the supporting bands (meaning the local ones)? We would really like to participate and get that crowd ready and going. Anyway, thanks for what you do as a band and what you do personally. You’ve been a great inspiration to our music. I hope to see you again this year.

    i’m not sure how i should tell you this. actually, i doubt about saying or not.
    i am an iranian fan and im not a LPU member, not because of money or not being interest.
    i havent any original albums because its not sell in my country
    i told you all of this to make you clear. the only way we can connect you, is your twitter account.
    but when you start to asking or saying something, we reply you with hoping that you are gonna answer us. and when you dont do this… you cant imagine how we get upset!
    not being lpu and cant go to concerts,is bad.
    not answering is worse!
    i know you are too busy and havent much time to answer everybody. im just saying!
    excuse me, im suck in english. 🙂

    Hello Mike!
    If you get the opportunity to read this, just know I have been listening to Linkin Park ever since I was four (about the time Hybrid Theory came out in 2000)! I am sixteen now and I have a Hybrid Theory CD, Frat Party at the Pancake Fest. DVD, and most of your albums from iTunes. Um yeah you can call me a fan! I’ve been dying to go to a LP concert, but they’re mostly in Europe, Asia, and South America! Tell Chester he has nice man-boobs in his role in Saw The Final Chapter. LOL! Well thanks for taking the time to read this! 😉

  55. marianaalpoimfanms on January 18, 2013 at 10:21 am

    Hello Mike 🙂 I’m from Portugal. I wait for your next time on Portugal. I’m fan since 2008. I started listen a few hours and your music change my life, my days have started win color. I see a long time your shows on different parts of the world and I love all the moments. I love one music specially, is “In The End”, because you go on direction at fans and we sing: «I’ve put my trust in you, pushed as far as I can go, for all this there’s only one thing you should know». It’s a beautiful moment. Thanks Mike!!

  56. mayreenshinoda on January 5, 2013 at 6:51 pm

    Hey Mike,
    My Name is Lisette.
    I live in Jena, Germany.
    I’ve got one question:
    Will you be someday here in Jena?
    I am 13 years old and I’m since 2 years a big fan of you.
    You can’t imagine how much you help me with your wonderful music.
    Briefly, my dad wants to kill me and my family.
    Without your music I had already given up.
    You would make me so incredibly happy if you would come to Jena.
    I know I’m one of a thousands who wants this but it’s worth a try.
    I love you.

    Lissi. ♥

    My Email:

    Please answer me. It’s one of the biggest wishes I ever had.

    Hi Mike,
    I think about writing you a message for a while.
    I would like you to know that you have a big influence on my life since I love Linkin Park back when I was 14:)I choose my future as an artist because I want to meet you at person one day and have a chat with you
    So I am 23 now:)Try to work my way and it wasn´t that easy as I expected.
    I would like you to look at my stuff and send me feedback.I care about your opinion what is bad or good.So far people cant tell me objective critism just keep letting me down.It would mean a lot to have your opinion on my artwork.
    It would be nice to send your thougts on:
    and my works you can find on brigitalinerova.ic

    Heey Mike,

    I’m from the Netherlands and i’m a huge fan of you. My school project goes about American rappers, so i was wondering if you could answer a few questions for me.
    My email is Dragon_xd@Hotmail.nl
    I hope you can send an email to me if you want to help me =)

    From Diana

  67. svelasquez9664 on October 30, 2012 at 7:47 am

    Hello Mike,

    I wanted to ask you if it’s okay for me to use your Neuphoria painting from Glorious Excess Dies in this poster I’m doing. It’s for Careers of the Future and you have to make a poster of what type of career you hope tp achieve and I wanted to become a fine artist. So get back at me with your response and I hope everything is okay. Thank you

    Sincerely, Stephanie
    P.S. You’re my inspiration for art and music and I love your work.

  68. adolfo699 on October 18, 2012 at 3:32 pm

    Hey Mike,

    Have you ever heard of Sickle Cell?

    My name is Conrad and im part of a charity organization called “Whats Da Count” we do shows in Los Angeles and the inland empire we recruit upcoming musicians to come out show they’re talents and create awareness for Sickle Cell Disease patients.

    I know your a very busy man but when you get a chance to take a look at our page and read about our mission and what we are about.

    In hopes that someday we can count on the support of even the extremely talented people as yourself. We do like to leave an open invitation to our shows to see the local talent the IE and LA have to offer the world.

    Thank You

  69. mmhall6195 on September 27, 2012 at 6:50 pm

    Hello Mike,
    Many, many thanks to you and Chester and the rest of the band for an absolutely fantastic show in Denver on Aug. 30. I am a huge Linkin Park fan, as is my 17-year-old son. This was his first live rock concert. We attended the show together, and for nearly two hours we stood and danced and jammed and sang every word of every song with you. It was incredible. We returned home, hoarse and too full of energy to sleep and stayed up until 3 am just talking and reliving the experience. Can’t wait to do it again. Thank you. All of you are my inspiration.

  70. spud01 on September 16, 2012 at 5:01 pm

    Hey Mike,
    Not sure if you will get this but it’s worth a shot right?
    Facebook, twitter, lp.com, ms.com and all the other social networking sites you use don’t exactly have enough characters for what us fans might have to say to you and the band. And with the amount of fans nor is it easy to get through to you.
    So my question is: is their a fan email or mailing address we can use?
    p.s i plan to post this on a couple other blog posts to increase my chance of you seeing this so i apologize in advance for any annoyance caused! 🙂

  71. mtm74 on September 9, 2012 at 6:30 am

    Dear Mike,

    Just another random fan thanking you and Linkin Park for all the hard work you do. You are very gifted creatively and try to grow and expand in your professional capacity, which is a pleasure to observe as I have enjoyed immensely all the music and art you have produced over the years.

    What is really making the difference to me, however, is how socially aware you are and how you are using your success to make a difference while still staying a nice and humble person.

    Your music has had a great personal meaning in my effort to wage war on my recurring depression but the effect you have had on lives globally more than supersedes that.

  72. fourx1 on August 29, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Your words!
    your music!
    your voice!
    Cant help it,
    dont have a choice.
    My feelings!
    My thoughts!
    My heart!
    Im lost in your beat
    Truth is an art.
    Thats what you do to me.
    Much love, april

  73. keithusius on August 28, 2012 at 2:51 pm

    Hi Mike,
    Sorry to bother you. I am writing because you and the rest of LP have been mine and my wife’s favorite group for years. She recently passed away suddenly at 34, and after much consideration, I’ve decided to contact a couple of our most favorite people and thank them.
    Thank you for your awesome music. It was an important part of our lives and now that she is gone, I appreciate it even more. We purchased all of your albums (the last one after the funeral) , and I hope to have the honor of buying many more.
    Respectfully yours,

  74. rishiparashar on August 17, 2012 at 5:47 am

    Hi Shinoda sir!I’m one of your fans from India…I read couple of your blog entries lately. Readin ’em was fun and all but also it has changed my outlook a bit. How? Well, I wont be overstating if I said that I’m the craziest LP fan of all the ppl I know…! But I never ever had the incentive of appreciating LP’s work on public sites lyk YT, FB and all,thinking “They obviously know what kinda greatness they are,makes no difference tellin ’em” Now that I read your blog stuff abt how -ve remarks on these kinda sites exceed(by way too much)than the +ve ones, I realize it’s my duty as a fan to give all my appreciation and suggestions about your work.So here it begins: YOU PPL R AWSM!

  75. mrcoololy on August 2, 2012 at 11:03 pm

    hey mike all i want to know is linkin park coming to toronto,ontario canada next year the north american tour 🙂

  76. jowanalp on August 2, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    Hi Mike!
    I have one question!When will Linkin Park come to Serbia,I love LP so much,please come to Serbia!! :DDDD

  77. elisnanel1 on July 29, 2012 at 2:11 pm

    Thought I’d add that trying to get light/sustainable energy for the people in Uganda and everywhere else is amazing.When you go to South Africa please go and look around the country its going through a pretty hard phase; some people are in pretty bad situations, electricity is cut off in areas all around the country people are murdered everyday for no reason, some live in awful conditions I only go once a year to visit family and in all honesty the goverment isn’t doing much to help the situation,I don’t know maybe you guys can give them hope give them the thought of a better future its an odd ask I guess but I love my country and I want to do everything I can for it. x elisna

  78. elisnanel1 on July 29, 2012 at 7:48 am

    I’m one of your many fans I guess haha…but something I admire and love is your work with the UN/Music for Relief, its pretty inspirational, It’s a little hard for me to donate and everything or join LP underground due to the fact that I move a lot don’t really have an address or anything but I would love to and do whatever I can to help whenever I am given the chance. Hopefully I’m lucky enough to see you in concert someday, btw come to the U.A.E.
    Also, your I love how throughout the years your music has changed yet stayed the same if you know what I mean. 😛 Also Fort Minor is pretty kick-ass as well.
    Would love if you wrote back, but totally get that your busy.
    Elisna x

  79. aswin77 on July 10, 2012 at 11:48 am

    Really huge fan. Well, in addition to being a fan, I’m also currently a Social Media intern at the New York startup called Appguppy (accelerator: Women Innovate Mobile). We have developed a free technology that lets musicians become their own mobile app. We’re launching our beta soon, and want to create a mobile app for you, Linkin Park, or Fort Minor for free. Any apps produced in beta would remain free for our clients. Our apps get deployed outside of app stores through links on social media, which is how we’re able to offer our service for free.

    my email :

  88. janewinchester7 on June 12, 2012 at 2:27 am

    Then I try to open my eyes, light is decreasing little by little. But now I can’t feel Chester’s body and that cool floor. I could hardly open my eyes and stand up with horror. I’m in my room, I feel pain on my back I go to the mirror, removing out my shirt which I don’t have until just some moments ago, I got fear full of what I was looking at the mirror. The ” Linkin park” was carved on my back, maybe with a hot object. I go to the door with a heavy sob pressing my throat; suddenly something gets into my foot.
    OH GOD, that’s chester’s black earing.

  89. janewinchester7 on June 12, 2012 at 2:26 am

    Its midnight, scared from those fuggy worms, I shelter to Chester’s bare bosom, his body is covered with different tattoos actually against mine, which is completely white. He seems to predict my thoughts, he whispering into my ear: completely against. Aren’t they?
    He’s wearing one of his earrings in my ear and says: when we both get rid of here, I could find you by this. I smile bitterly and say: when I look at my friend’s corpses there, I couldn’t even imagine getting free from here.

    While I was still waiting for Chester’s reply, suddenly that projector turned on, I have to close my eyes because of floods of light and severe headache.

  90. janewinchester7 on June 12, 2012 at 2:25 am

    I say: but if you be resistant, you would die just like others. Chester made a sorrowful and touched his black earing. And said: I don’t want you to die; I don’t like be left alone. I remove my gossamer shirt while I show my back to him, I asked: could you write” linkin park” with this glassy knife on my back? Chester said ok while touching my back. Then, he starts to write with his fingers instead of scratching by glass. His hand is somehow cold, my body gets creeped. With a sudden movement, he has turned me back to himself.

  91. janewinchester7 on June 12, 2012 at 2:24 am

    A box of wine bottles and a projector are the anything around the room. Instead of turning that projector on, we both prefer to continue our disgusting lives in the darkness.

    Mike and phoenix’s body smelling terribly. I afraid that, those fuggy worms get into my mouth. I go to Chester, scare from what I was thinking about. His voice is calm. I decide to explore the fire actually like primary humans. We could maybe take a piece of each other’s flesh to make barbecue. I go to the empty wine bottle, then hit it to the wall and make a glassy knife. I put it on my hand, Chester shouts: No… you mustn’t do that.

  92. janewinchester7 on June 12, 2012 at 2:21 am

    hi mike this message is for u and chaster .. i dont want say you are awesome or something like this cause you hear this words every day maybe you and him don’t idol that i created for myself but surely it close to chester and you. cause i thinking i sense both of you specially Chester.

    i wrote a short story when i was very sad and suddenly I feel a sense from a real source and my feeling say`s me it was from Chester So it is important to me that ches read this and Tell me his comment even that is a word.

  93. zeeshanmir1 on June 6, 2012 at 4:28 am

  95. monkeyincheck on June 2, 2012 at 9:14 am

    Hey Mike!
    let me just say your artwork is amazing and I was wondering if you would make iPod cases? You see my birthday is coming and I think my iPod needs a new case and a break from its normal white silicone one. So I was thinking and searching if you do any iPod cases. So that’s my idea and fingers crossed I may be in luck!

  96. thunderwarning on May 25, 2012 at 2:37 pm

    Dear Mike,

    I’m writing to you here on behalf of a friend of mine (I even got this account solely for this purpose). I wish to ask you, do you [the whole band] have any plans to do a concert in Greece again? If not, would you be open to thinking about going to Greece?

    My friend who lives in Greece has been listening to you guys since she was in elementary school (she’s now in uni) but she’s never got to see you preforming live. She had tickets to a gig a few years back but due to unforeseen problems she couldn’t attend. She’s really upset about this.

    It would mean a lot to me if you even just considered it.

    Thank you for your time.


  97. mrbal on May 22, 2012 at 7:53 am

    Greetings from Romania Bucharest, where you will be on 6th of May, we are waiting for you and your band.
    Here it is a link of a video from a teenagers band from Romania http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o2idlvdXSVU

  98. iluvcloudstrife on May 17, 2012 at 3:34 am

    Hi, Mike.
    Honestly, I really hate heavy metal songs when I was young. I called those songs noisy. But after I’ve watched Transformer movies, I’ve totally changed my minds. I’m attracted by New Divide & What I’ve Done, then addicted to Linkin Park’s songs. I can’t stop listening to your musics now. Really love you all so much!!!

  99. iluvcloudstrife on May 17, 2012 at 3:17 am

    Hi Mike,
    I’m from Malaysia. Really wish that LP can come to Malaysia for live concert.

  100. robann on May 10, 2012 at 5:58 am

    but I do not forget to say that your voices are …. for me…exciting
    then to finish my message:
    hello Mike, how are you?
    I am an ‘old’ French woman 37-year …
    Mom of 5 alliens (laughs)
    “Linkin Park” drives me crazy!

  101. robann on May 10, 2012 at 5:55 am

    sorry I have not finished my post ^ ^
    I (too) many things to tell you.
    I hope “the raid redemption” also released in France?!

  102. robann on May 10, 2012 at 5:37 am

    hello Mr. Shinoda.
    I’m sorry for my (very) bad english, I’m writing from France …
    So, first I want to tell you, again, I love listening to your band, your music, your voice, that of Chester …
    but, primarily, your words, your text always want to say something sincere and I like it.sincerely.
    I also admire your talent as a artist , your paint is very inspired …
    I came to the concert at Bercy , in Paris the 25.10.2010 …
    you come back soon in France?
    it’s stupid to say this but … I miss you.

  119. nsklov on January 10, 2012 at 4:59 pm

    Hey Mike,
    This is a request of a song which i and many other would LOVE to hear u remake with the band. I hope you take this into consideration as it shouldn’t be even a slightest bit hard at the moment. The song “Stick n’ Move – Xero” if you could remake it under Linkin Park *Meteora Style*, would greatly be appreciated and loved. Ofcourse following you guys for 12 years has made me realize that Fans are the most important part of your life. So try not to let this ONE fan and many Others down would ya 😀


  120. kyroray on January 10, 2012 at 3:34 am

    Hi Mike!
    Do not want to seem tactless, but could you answer one question?

    Which midi keyboard would you choose if you do not have the money, with 7 octaves (cheaper) or with cool widgets and just 4 octaves (more expensive)?
    and at the same time, you need to practice at the piano playing…

    Thanks for the earlier =)

  121. magz12 on December 3, 2011 at 8:04 am

  122. magz12 on December 3, 2011 at 7:59 am

    so far im convinced that linkin park should be the highest payed band of all america and other places. helping with energy,helping build houses,and so on. this is one metal band with heart and soul. not like those other creeps like…… metallica or something. well im an artist waiting for someone to discover me, once im up there somewhere ill mention that linkin park is the band i have loved for a very long time. love u guys

  123. Marque Cornblatt on December 1, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    Mike, hey. Just wanted to let you know I’ve been listening to ‘Right now’ by Fort Minor in a loop and in my opinion, it’s a song that really describes life right now. In general, not just mine.

    It’s really made an impact on me, and I just wanted to say thanks for that.

  125. v_khedkar on November 14, 2011 at 10:15 pm

    Mike, what is L.H.D after your name in the above post? Please enhance my knowledge!!! I love your band and hate that you don’t come to India. I have tweeted this several times!!!

  126. stationofrevenge on November 12, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Hi Mike, I was just watching Meeting of A Thousand Suns and you mentioned a song called Meadow Lands to be one of the singles. What happened to that song?


  133. celina1008 on October 16, 2011 at 4:43 am

    Hey Mike,

    first i want to say sorry for my bad english. I hope you understand what i write.
    I would like to thank you for beeing such a great artist. Linkin Parks music has changed my life. There was a time when i didnt really see the a reason to live. Your music gave me so much energy and made me feel like i was not alone. You have changed my life, thank you so much for that. I hope that one day i can change somebodys life in a good way, too.

    Have a good day and God bless you,

  137. dark2900paladin on September 30, 2011 at 6:47 pm

    Hey there Mike,
    I would really love to have you message me back on this. See, I made a rap beat out of “In The End” i was wondering if you could give me permission to use “In The End” for this. I am not in anyway trying to make money off it i just thought it would be cool, and maybe have my crew rap over it.

    This is the video of the beat I posted on youtube:

  138. withinme1005 on September 29, 2011 at 10:55 am

    I figured out a problem with RSS here. Your new posts are not appearing in my Firefox subscription for a couple of days.
    Can you please fix what is wrong?

    Or maybe I ought to try “Notify me of new posts via email.” function?)

  140. tanya000 on August 6, 2011 at 7:42 am

    Good time of the day, Mike Shinoda! You, and other members of the group, a big hello from Russia! You did a great gig in Moscow, it is a pity, that I watched this concert only on the Internet.

  153. ejheii on June 20, 2011 at 10:30 am

    suggestion here.define RAPMETAL again but this time,how bout wit feeL good songs.mostLy LP songs has the negativity side on it but how bout showin some POSITIVITY Like bob MARLEY’s ONE LOVE and BLack Eyed Peas’ Where is The Love.hows that for LP’s poLarization?it wouLd be somethin different for LP and the worLd.LP is my roLe modeL so why not make it even more a RoLe modeL since LP has been doin it share for humanity?Mike’s taLent on rappin is one of the best.make use of it.LP has it aLL and now we just need that RAPMETAL side again and LP wiLL be THE GREATEST!pLs. think about this.you can change this poLLuted music worLd Like nobody eLse can with POSITIVITY.GodbLess LP!

  154. jayde3p on June 18, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    Hi Mike. I would like to know what kind of inspiration did the band had, while making MTM and ATS, because I think that those 2 albums are not so heavy like Meteora or HT, but the lyrics are just so beautiful. By the way, I’m trying to become a good musician, along with my band, and I would like to know what are the best types of electric guitars, and samplers. I also would like to know if you (LP) are planing coming to Portugal in 2011 or 2012. I’ve never seen the band live and I think that it would be awesome.
    Thanks, Wainting for your response.

    PS: Sorry for the bad english, I’m from Portugal.

  155. lunnasol on June 16, 2011 at 5:51 am

    Hi Mike, I often listen to your songs on my way to work… but just today got to see a little of the history behind the band. And, to make the long story short, that little made me reach your page.
    Your work is beautiful to me and much appreciated to where I come form. And after reading a few posts I can say I will be looking forward to see your next professional moves.

    Not sure if my question to you will be answered, but I’ll give it a shot anyway:

    What inspires you?

    Hope you have a good day!

    Hello my name is Louise and I live in Italy. To me you are not only an idol, but a model to follow. I follow the Linkin Park for many years now and the thing I love about you is your commitment to make every so alone. I know you’re a Graphic Designer, I am a commercial artist and I want to be as good as you, unfortunately I do not have the money and the Italian training is poor, there is no work and this allows me to learn what I want and ame. We hope to have another long series of Success. You are a myth. Luisa.

  158. cube501 on May 24, 2011 at 5:34 am

  161. cube501 on May 24, 2011 at 5:22 am

    Hi Mike. I was wondering why you don’t have any permanent tattoos. Is it because it will hurt? I am just super curious because you love art soooooo…….

    Thanks! 🙂

  162. cube501 on May 24, 2011 at 5:17 am

    HA! Sorry… didn’t mean to post that question twice… XD

  168. tozcan0 on May 3, 2011 at 6:48 pm


    Hey Mike,

    I’ve been a fan for the past 10 years. Have you considered putting out an autobiography? It would be really inspiring to hear your stories; the Stuggles & Sacrifices. It takes a special mindset to accomplish all that you have & letting us in to your world would be “groovy”. Spending endless hours going thru LPTV, reading thru MS.com, watching documentaries & etc. was cool when I had the time but now that I have my own projects going on, reading your book prior to sleep would be a great way to wake up with encouragement.

    She wears her autographed Club Tattoo shirt with pride, thank you for that. 🙂

  172. mcm46 on May 1, 2011 at 12:49 pm

    We have printed out info on Music for Relief and she will present this to her teacher on Monday and ask her again. The class was told they could do this on a group and we do not know her reasoning for the quick NO she gave our daughter. Maybe a pre conceived notion of who she thinks you are, I dont know. My daughter said to me what if I get in trouble? I assured her not to worry to fight for something she feels strongly about. Any comments you may have may help her to achieve her goal. She feels strongly about this. I will update you and let you know what happens. She attended her first LP concert in San Jose and was thrilled you performed her favorite song off the new album Blackout.

  173. mcm46 on May 1, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    Hi Mike,
    I recently attented Lp concerts in Las Vegas and San Jose. I went to two meet and greets in Vegas and it was surreal meeting you and the band. Thank you for a wonderful experience and memories I will have forever. My entire family are LP fans and we are attending the BFD this summer at Shoreline (which I told you is my favorite place to see you guys) Thank you 🙂 With that being said our 12 year old daughter came home from school on Friday with a project titled The life and accomp;ishments of a famous person. She asked her teacher if she could do her research report on Linkin Park and was told no.

  174. speedsk8ter4 on April 22, 2011 at 9:40 am

    Hi Mike,

    Ok i’ll get right to the point I want to get copyrights to your music so I can create ringtones for the songs. I am willing to give up to 30% of all profits made to you. If you can e-mail me back with any information you have.

  175. kishrith17 on April 6, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    mike, you still amaze me with your creative mind and style. ^^ hope the tour is going good!

    love ya!

    from a dear fan,


  176. luvmychildren on March 30, 2011 at 10:43 pm

    Hi Mike!

    I would like to comment that LP is amazing for everything that you guys do. The music you give us and the hard work you guys put into helping those in need. I’m glad bands like yours still exist…..

Please let Chester know that I’m praying for a quick recovery. So heartbroken that the DC show was cancelled…I was so looking forward to the Meet & Greet and watching you guys rock that stage.

    hello mike, wish you could check the work of a musician in Brazil, I’ll pass the link and everything, if you can disclose them there …
    They already have some cover for Linkin Park songs like one step closer, givem up and so on. I hope it helps them in something!

    Can’t wait to see you Friday at Madison Square Garden! 🙂

  190. thehiddenelement on January 29, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    Hey Mike,
    My name is Ben Fox and i was at your concert in Minnesota at the Xcel Center last night. I enjoyed the show and you even gave me a high five. I am part of a band right now we are called the Hidden Element. We play music that ranges from all around the musical spectrum. Your band is our biggest influence. You are such a big influence that I brought a flash drive to your show last night , so I could give it to you. I threw it on stage and it almost his chester (sorry). The dumb part is i could of just handed it to you or Chester when you went crowd surfing 20 mins later.Darn, missed my shot, but if by any chance you did get a purple,pink flash drive check it out.Please Thanks

  191. nini1957 on January 20, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    Hi Mike,
    My twins were surprised that I knew your music when they caught me singing along (badly!) to one of your songs one day, and Kyler said “Mike Shinoda is the best!” I said that I know that last name – and my brother confirmed that I was right!
    My mom Nadia passed away 2 months ago, and wasn’t able to find your parents to send them an announcement. Please let them know, and give them my best.
    I am so happy for your success! I hope it continues for many years!
    (please say Hi to Aki for me!)

  192. skexismeldarion365 on January 19, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    I was hoping to get some professional feedback/ constructive criticism , and hopefully if it doesn’t breach any laws, I was hoping to collab with Mike / Linkin Park to produce some tracks (if you’re interested). I remember seeing some message on some networking site saying that Linkin Park was looking 4 some fan based remixes (unfortunately, I didn’t see it ’til it was too late). I’m really looking forward to a response. Btw, I have some tracks of my own in the event u want to hear a sample of my material.

  193. nightstripe on January 17, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Hey, i have been trying to find your guys’ address for a long time. my boyfriend is a Huge linkin park fan! like he hears your song he tells me to be quiet till its over. I was really just wondering if i could have an autograph from you guys. i spray painted a Linkin Park and he loves it, i’m sure he’d love this more. if i can email me please, sschoen13@gmail.com.

  194. zhanel911 on January 15, 2011 at 3:38 am

    Hello, Mike! I’m Zhanel, from Kazakhstan. Happy New year! 🙂 please,please,please check out my video!! I just started to upload my video-covers on YouTube (nobody’s watching my video 😥 )and I would be so pleased if you email me, or leave a comment! I NEED YOUR OPINION!!!! 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRnWiepCH3I Please, please, please!!!!!!

  195. namtox on January 14, 2011 at 9:30 am

    I know this is probably going to fall on deaf ears, but I have to try. Before the album came out I was super excited. Really was looking forward to hearing the new styles and everything about the album. So I purchased the super deluxe edition with all the trimmings. Except, I didn’t get any album til November. I still haven’t got the signed skateboard deck either. I’m not blaming the band at all, but it sucks when the company responsible responds to me, and promises the board, 2 free tickets and a meet and greet with the band, and 3 months later, still no response after their *promise*. If anybody from the and can read this, I’d really appreciate your help. Email is namtox@yahoo.com.

  196. tine2510 on January 9, 2011 at 11:05 am

    Hi Mike,
    I’ve two questione I’ll beg you to answer if possible.
    For many people LP is made up of Mike and Chester. What do the other guys think about that?
    The other one: I love your music, but also the lyrics are very importen for me. I try to get an idea of your characters and your views through the songtexts. So I tried to find out what the lyrics of ATS mean. The songs can surly be interpreted in different ways. But the bottom line is an attitude against war, against violence and repression, isn’ it? You stand for love, freedom. But how can that conform to your engagement for the ego-shooter game Medal of Honor that glorifies violence and war? Can I be so wrong about you?

    I Mike I need to ask you some questions, I am not a reporter so it will stay between us. you must have my email address from the site if not you can go over to http://www.dragonant.deviantart.com and drop a line there Please it is very important. Thank you

  198. koreanmidget on December 26, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    Merry Christmas Mike I hope it was alright for you,
    Can i ask you and Linkin Park as a whole a favor? My girlfriends Grandmother passed away on Dec 23rd and she’s really down, and I’m taking her to your concert on the 26th of Jan. Her favorite song is By Myself and hearing that live i think would cheer her up a great deal. If you guys could please play it in Chicago I think she would greatly appreciate it as would I. I know this is probably asking a lot so if you can’t then i completely understand. Thank you for taking your time to read this.


  199. tannerwolf on December 25, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Heya. I heard this is kinda a good place to contact you guys, so I just have something to say-

    You guys juts have been my favorite band for maybe 5 years now? I have all your songs, I mean like all your songs. I have yet to go yo a concert, but yet that’s only because I don’t have the money. All your songs speak to me in a way that cannot be understood by others. The meanings reach deep into me, it’s just strange. I believe Breaking The Habit it probably the best one that does that. I don’t know if you even will read this comment, but I hope you do. (Ran out of room D:)

  200. olatzgp on December 21, 2010 at 3:48 am

    at least I can write.
    Hi Mike, I´m from Spain, I love your pictures and all the things you do.
    You must be stressed but you are the most time with a smile i tour face, how you make it? sorry about my english

  201. dominichi151 on December 12, 2010 at 5:50 am

    Hi Mike,
    My name is Dom and I am 14 and I am loving Linkin Park and your blog and i would be extremely grateful if you could perhaps e-mail me as i have some queries for you about songwriting and music in general, thanks.

  202. adla04 on December 10, 2010 at 3:53 am

    I just heard the song “When they come for me” and I get the feeling that you don´t know to distinguish a person muslim or islamic, form a person spanish, because I found a singing spanish phrases whit a islamic song, I think that you give a wrong idea to other people, because I ´m not islamic, Spain isn´t a country of Islam, here we don´t want the person muslim or painting.

  203. Minvasion on December 3, 2010 at 11:30 am

    hey can you (linkin park) make sometime a concert with pendulum again..but in germany?

  204. patercake on December 2, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    Hey Mike,
    I’m not so sure how this all works, but if you could email me, I’d greatly appreciate it. I have something extremely important to me to ask you and if you were to take a second from your day just to listen to what I have to say. It would mean the world to me.

  205. tchiteloulou on December 1, 2010 at 7:12 am

    Hi Mike!
    My name is Léa, I’m 17 and I’m french (so sorry for my english^^’)
    I’m going to your show in Paris on October 25th, and I loved it!
    But I was very frustrated to not find a Dvd of your concert, because the show was so good and I would like see it again and again! ^^
    So I have realized my own video of the show with videos on the net and the audio recording.
    It’s the concert to the beginning at the end! =)

  206. galinmitev on November 27, 2010 at 10:36 am

    Hey, Mike I think you’ll like the “Wretches And Kings” Video that I made:

    hey mike

    I know you get every day many posts and emails. but I have an important message for you! Please contact me is very important for me!

    1 november 2010, I was at the concert of you Linkin Park that you played in Zurich! (I was left at the stage in the first row) in the song when they come for me I have shown my letter chester and he took him actually! I can not believe it.

  210. crywolf77 on November 3, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    Hello Mike!

    Thank you for your music! I was in your concert in Switzerland the 1rst november and I was invited to the meet and greet but I had a problem and I arrived too late. I’m so so sad. It was maybe the only chance in my life to see you for real. Please write me…. just a little word….

    Kiss from Geneva!

    hola¡¡ espero que se encuentren bien linkin park, saludos desde argentina. me gusto la letra en español de “waiting for the end” is excellent¡¡ bye, bye..¡¡

  213. synthmansdestiny on October 22, 2010 at 1:59 am

    Hey Hi Mike…….
    Well first of all let me congratulate on your new album “A Thousands Suns”.Must say a phenomenal,extra-ordinary,mind-blowing,super-duper work by all of you.From beginning i admire your depth,message,inspiration in music you put forth, really you are the most unpredictable band and my most favorite.
    But this time hats off to your work guys.
    Mike I’ve a query regarding a track “The Radiance” from your new album,how you got this man its really amazing to see your study.I really need explanation on that particular track Mike please, please make me know about it.I’m waiting for your reply.
    Synthman’s Destiny.

  215. darricklin on October 19, 2010 at 2:22 am

    I really like the “Thousand Suns” album a lot. Then again, there is isn’t a Linkin Park record I don’t like. The 1,000 Suns sound seems to spread & mix even more than before over different genres of music, which I find fantastic…

    Based on blogs, many don’t think Minutes-2-Midnight is as good Met~eora or Hybrid Theory, but I think it close. When it comes to critics (yeah I know say some stupid sh!+), love is always the appropriate reaction.

    THANK U 4 YOUR TIME…, Darrick Hiro Lin

  216. milasouza11 on October 13, 2010 at 5:57 pm

    I HOPE YOUR READ! for god sake…

    I’m hating the twitter updates.
    I had sent you a message about the video I made
    and edited in concert here in Brazil SWU, and by what I observed,
    these messages we received over time, it is “erased”, I mean, you don’t have ,much time to see the messages on twitter.
    So i think, probably, the messages I’ve sent to you, it had already been erased. =[
    For this reason, i’m here!
    I hope you read my comment!
    This is the video..
    I WAS SO CLOSER ON THE STAGE, you could check out! ↓

    please, watch!!

  218. tkadono83 on September 26, 2010 at 12:12 am

    I’ve started making music inspired by Linkin Park. I guess all of my buddies said what I do fits right in . . . ofcourse not nearly as great. But its something along the line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDr_h2KNjGc if it can be used, it’ll be an honor.

  219. darrenvandermerwe on September 26, 2010 at 12:02 am

    Hi mike

    I’m a mad fan of Linkin Park
    I would do anything to see a live consort but…
    I live in South Africa:( nothing that important ever happens
    And the world cup was a fail anyway…

    But I was wondering if you guys will ever have a consort in South Africa?

    thnx darren

  220. treth468 on September 25, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    Dear Mike: The new album is INCREDIBLE! The Scorpions did a similar thing a few years ago with an album called Humanity. It was never played here in the US much but I being a huge scorps fan of course owned it. VERY INTENSE.. My taste in music varies so much.. Metallica’s The DAy that Never Comes.. INCREDIBLE.. one of their best. I think Catalyst is one of your best! The damn song is in my head all the time.. 🙂 Good work!

  221. Matty on September 15, 2010 at 11:42 pm


    I am Military Photographer in the Royal Air Force in the middle of a photographic project and am writing to ask if it would be possible to obtain a press pass for myself and a colleague, who is also doing a set of images on Low Light Uncontrolled Action, to the Linkin Park Concert at the LG, Birmingham, United Kingdom on November the 9th 2010.

    If this is not possible, then would there be any possibility of photographing yoursel at a sound test, or before the concert gets going?

    I realise this is a big ask, but I would love the opportunity to photograph you guys and of course if you would like I would happily send you a CD of images for your own use.


  222. aristeastark on September 15, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    hei mike, i ve been a big fan since 2000 , and i want to ask for a favor. i d like to have a tattoo design by your artwork. how could i take your permission for that?

  224. aussiesteve84 on September 13, 2010 at 5:20 am

    Hi Mike,

    been with you guys since hybrid theory and have loved every album since! Man where did you guys get your inspiration for A Thousand Suns? It’s fckin EPIC! The way you guys have mixed genres, beats, harmonies, its just unreal man. LP is really making a huge mark in music history. The new album is really thinking outside the square and you guys are really evolving as a band into something incredible.

    Can’t wait to see you guys in Australia in December! Saw minutes to midnight in Brisbane and can’t wait for the next tour.


  225. pietze on September 12, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    hi Mike ,

    I must say the new album is very different from the other, but it is really good. I love your new style . all these new elements of electro, it’s amazing.
    my absolute favorite songs are “Burning in the skies”, “the catalyst” and “Iridecent” but the others are also great.I like your voice when you sing.
    you are simply great, keep it up.

    (I’m sorry for my bad english 😉 I hope you can read it anyway )

  226. nemesismpp on September 11, 2010 at 12:31 am

    Hi Mike,

    I am a really big fan of Linkin Park. I love the music. But I have to say, that the new album “a thousand suns” is not so good. I was happy to have a new Linkin Park CD that I would hear so manny times in my car, like the old music. But now I have to say and I wish, that Linkin Park will think about it, and make music like Crawling, Pushing me away, numb or in the end. I loved the rap-rock-mix with heavy parts and slower parts in the songs. Please Linkin Park, come back!

    A big german fan


  227. joynert on September 10, 2010 at 10:49 pm

    hi Mike, i am a really big fan of Linkin Park, and i can’t wait for the new album to come out xD! and i just want to ask if you guys are coming to Venezuela on your south-american tour?. ‘cuz here in Venezuela really are a lot of fans that want to go for your concert ;). thanks 🙂

  241. gallen1986 on July 10, 2010 at 7:43 am

    Hey Mike,

    Love your music, ever since the first time I heard “In the end” back in 2000, and have loved your work ever since, loved it’s going down, and your work with fort minor, but I found something to be a bit of a let down on the “Minutes to Midnight” CD, and just wanted to know, if you could tell me, and please don’t take this the wrong way, are you going to have a more vocal part on the new CD, minutes to midnight had more of a Chester feel to it, and I missed that feel from the original CD’s of Linkin’ Park, so ultimately, are you going to have a bigger vocal part on this new CD?

    Thanks, Will

  242. bnur on July 9, 2010 at 2:58 am

    Lov ur stuff, listen all the time to both LP & Fort Minor, my sons introduced me to LP and FM, lov the rap, keep going. As an old girl of 59, it is refreshing to hear something that I enjoy so much. Of the newer stuff Bleed it out is the best after papercut & points of authority, but really like the FM tracks the boy put on the ipod for me. Both sons and I are looking forward to the day you get back to Australia so we can enjoy a concert together.

    I’m waitin’ news!! I love u! Bye!!


    P.S. “Blackbirds” is really Beautiful!! 🙂

  264. Rama on June 17, 2010 at 3:38 am

    ‘Sup Mike,

    I always thought that that your singing on the bonus track of M2M (No Roads Left) was really brilliant. Just by the way, did you sing that song without AutoTune? Because that means that you and Chester could actually do some sick duets. Is there anything of the sort on the new album? And I hope that you will still be rapping on the new album on at least a few songs, ’cause it will never be the same if you guys cut the rapping off. Also, it’s nice to see that your rapping style has matured considerably. I suppose your FM side project helped you with that? It’s also nice to see how versatile you guys are, and how you allow side projects in the band.
    What do you say?

  265. Nur on June 16, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    Hi Mike!

    I’ve recently discovered this blog. But I have to say that I’m a very fan of you! I’ve grown with Linkin Park music (I’m 20 and I’d listened your music since I was 10).

    The design of this web is so nice! ^^ I like the green – black – white colours combination.

    I can see in lots of comments of LP’s fans questioning about the release of new album. I’m not going to ask it. Because I don’t mind how many time you take until the release, I’ll keep being a fan of Linkin Park!

    I’ll be so glad for you to respond my comment! Although there’s a lot of comments to respond…

    Greetings from Spain! ^^

  266. Roberta on June 16, 2010 at 12:14 am

    Hey,Just a shout out to you to let you know that when my Mom passed away it was your music that helped me to get through it. I absolutely love you gentlemen. Keep on rockin my ears and my mind. You blow me away!!!!

  267. Mr. Hun on June 15, 2010 at 11:47 pm

  269. Bill Ragusa on June 15, 2010 at 9:41 pm

    Mike, I am 56 years young, and I honestly have to tell you that Linkin Park is one of the best bands I have ever had the honor of listening to. My son tells me he has seen you at Fry’s, and I envy him. Watching your videos are moments that captivate me. Listening to your music I feel young again, and your vocals are incredible. Your music makes living that much more enjoyable, and when I drive my car, 90% of the time I am listening to Linkin Park. In the old days it would have been Black Sabbath or Van Halen, but seriously, you totally rock! Thank you for the awesome music. Bill Ragusa

  270. Tuba on June 15, 2010 at 11:30 am

    hi mike !

    My soon to be 13 year old daughter is your biggest fan ever Mike. She talks about you every day and to everyone. She is so impressed by you (other than the fact you smoke!) I asked her last week what she wanted for her birthday and she said YOU. I said now what are you going to do with him? She said just hug him and talk to him and stare at him. So Mike…I love my daughter more than life itself. Are you for sale? Do you perform at teen birthday parties? What’s your price? If not, how about a life size card board replica, or life size photo? I really need some help here! I took her to her first concert @ age 9 and it was to see LP, she’s loved you ever since!! PLEASE HELP!

  277. Michael on June 7, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Don’t worry im not gonna taint you with the never ceasing question of the album release date, this is just my way of letting you know that I think you guys are actually the best band ever, moreover after I heard Fort Minor and watched some LP live stuff you became my musical influence. Just keep being awesome!!!!

My stepdad set up the stage to one of the Linkin Park shows. My mom went with, she got a t-shirt that you all signed for me 🙂
    I really don’t know why I am putting this but you are my favorite person and I would like to hear from you. If not, oh well. Your a busy guy 😀 HAVE A AWESOME DAY! (P.S~ Im a girl so don’t think I am some weird creeper guy lol)

I want you guys apart of this awesome charity. My friend that passed away was a fan..and want you apart of it. pls. contact me

  320. Dylan Dunlap on May 3, 2010 at 6:49 pm

    Hey Mike. I just wanted to say your songs are inspirational. Seriously they make me think and it’s just so outstanding to hear the brilliant lyrics you come up with. I myself am a musician/composer, and so is my dad and he does the music for a tv show called South Park. But I was wondering if you could spend a minute looking my name on iTunes. I got a song on there, and the thing is.. Music’s everything to me. It really is. Nothing goes well in my life. Nothing goes the way I want it to, but I have your music to inspire me to make my own. If you spent a second searching Dylan Dunlap on iTunes I would EXTREMELY appreciate it. Thankyou for your time..

    Well, I’m still in school and I have to do a PowerPoint about some artist and me and my group were thinking about talking about your paints and about your life exposed in Wikipedia.

  370. aman on March 16, 2010 at 1:47 am

    Hi Mike!I’m Aman/I’m from the south of Russia.Exuse me for my bad English but I try to write it right/U r the one group in the world that differs from other.Ur music makes me think of life, world etc. I’m 16 years old and next year I’ll try to create my own rock group.While I write the songs(words to songs) on Russian and English. But i want to sing on English ’cause all the world will be able to hear and undestand me, my emotions and feels/
    I’m waiting for ur new album and I hope I’ll be surprised. I’ll be glad if you’ll answer to me!

  371. Smoggy on March 15, 2010 at 10:10 am

    Hello, Mike. Thank you for all you’ve done and what you will do in the nearest future. Hard to believe, but I have my rap group at my block, and our style grew up on your songs only. Thank you especially for High Voltage (IT’S REALLY COOL!!!) and for Where’d you go? (I’ve learned it by heart and I want to cry when I hear this song). And I have one question for you, Mike. Is it really important to know the language of the country to sing its songs or to read its rap? I think so, because it’s hard for me to read High Voltage, but my songs I can read quickly.
    With a great reaspect! Smoggy from Tyumen, Russia
    I’m waiting ro your answer! Good luck! xDDD

  372. Daniel on March 15, 2010 at 6:56 am

    Hy Mike could you please tell me how to make an account to Mr. Hahn`s website because I want to tell him Happy Birthday . PS : Do Rob , Brad and Pheonix have an official webite of their own , I`m waiting your response . Keep on rockin LP .

  373. D'koR on March 14, 2010 at 10:18 am

    I grew up on your music on your images, tearing, along with Chester’s voice, repeating drum beats for Rob, and thank you that you have undertaken to promote the rock culture. Dear Mike Please please Say hello to Chester and Rob 😉

  374. D'koR on March 14, 2010 at 10:14 am

    Hi Mike! My name is Bogdan Zelensky I am 16 years old, I’m from Russia and I apologize for my fractured English x)) I am writing here for the first time and it is a huge honor for me, as a true fan of Linkin Park, admire your team, especially you, Mike, a musician and an artist, I very keen on this and just going to learn from the artist)), a great desire to become a drummer and associate life with music, but it is not possible, while only the drum sticks). On the other, we locked in a room and listen to your discography, simulate musical instruments and compose texts.

  375. Ran on March 12, 2010 at 12:29 am

    Hey 😀

  376. Marissa on March 10, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    Hey Mike hows it going?:) Latley i listened to New Divide like alot of times to make a remix of the lyrics, and i changed the title to New Gum which is my new remix of New Divide. I watched LPTV & saw Chester singing some gum part version, so i decided to make a gum lyric version. I’m kinda new to this site but i wish i could let u see my version of New Divide. Anyways that was my info to let u know^^.
    Take care Mike!!! 🙂 Btw, can’t wait 4 the new album!!

    To see to me it in live having hardened stand under the power of a sight…?
    Helpless but full will to take itself back in hands… There is no I cannot it is painfully sick have made a sight…?
    You will ask as it is possible after all a sight… It is gentle…
    But I will tell to my soul it have painfully made but it is good to me after all it has painfully made and me…
    To Mike from Anel…

  382. Nick on March 6, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    What’s up Mike? So you know dude, I’ve been down with you since Hybrid Theory, man, love every song you and the others have released whether it is LP or Fort Minor, keep em coming, dude.

    Though, I only have one question? Can you guys please put some more of your songs on Rock Band 2? One Step Closer was on there but it seems for some reason they haven’t released anything else on there. I’ll keep my hopes high man, much respect.

  383. Betty(: on March 6, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    well, i read this the day you posted it, but since almost everyone commented it besides me, i figured why the hell not?
    your site looks great by the way.
    ive actually listened to your music since i was 7. weird, i know. now im 17.
    woah. its actually pretty strange for me to still like your music, no offense.
    but i usually get over an album after a couple of weeks. yeah, thats not happening with LP. im listening to breaking the habit right now; my favorite of all.
    anyways, love you guys. keep up the amazing work. & im really anticipating your new album.

  384. Anel on March 6, 2010 at 3:19 am

    Greetings Mike =) I wish to tell many thanks for that that you create such music… You to me are very expensive at the sight of your photos at me go a roof in good sense. You music cheers up and lifts it even more if it good. I am very glad that there are such abrupt guys as you =) every day begins with that that the screen of the computer I see your photo…… Every day I listen to your music… I Hope you appear to Kazakhstan in a city of Almaty?! will wait for you =) I love you strongly =)

  390. Adam on March 2, 2010 at 9:00 pm

    Hey Mike,
    I’ll cut straight to the point since I only have so many characters. I have Cystic Fibrosis and after having a near fatal lung infection I battled back to reasonably good health (all things considered). Anyways, I made a program to help others do the same and am designing a not for profit company to help both people with CF and other terminal illnesses fight back against their illnesses. Anyways, I wanted to use a Fort Minor song in a DVD and couldn’t think of any other way of contacting you. The program is already being considered by the local CF foundations in Canada and will hopefully, once completed, be expanded when finished. If you could email me I’d really appreciate it

  391. regiane on March 2, 2010 at 1:40 pm

    mike, when you come to Brazil?
    has many fans here who want too go to a concert of linkin park

  392. Mandy Russell on March 2, 2010 at 11:44 am

    Hey Mike,
    I am a huge fan, a bit older than your average fan at 45, but still! I had a surreal year last year and I wanted to say that of the positives I pulled out of it, your music and creativity helped to inspire me.
    I ended up helping out a friend who I discovered to be a very talented artist – she in return designed my company logo and illustrated my book. I would be honoured if you would take a look at the snapshot of her work on my website and the cover of my book and give me some critique for her there is much more, but this will give a taster.

    hi mike I’m from Colombia and my question is whether they have thought about touring South America? and for truth we are expectations about whether they thought

    Hey Mike, my name is Jonas Lara, I graduated from Art Center in Spring 09′ the one that you attended. The reason Im contacting you is that I was recently arrested while photographing 2 graffiti artists which is part of a 5 year project documenting Los Angeles based artists (not just graffiti). Well they confiscated my gear and Im being charged with Felony Vandalism. Ive been hitting up former instructors, colleagues, non-profit orgs with no luck so far. I was wondering if you had any advice or know of anyone who might be able to help me out. Thanks man . . .

  440. Vanni on February 11, 2010 at 3:18 am

    Hello Mike!
    I saw the video for ‘Not Alone’ … it is wonderful! I hope that many people look to reflect and understand that we do every evil in the world is made only to ourselves. is useless to hide behind the lies, needless to say that natural disasters are, needless to say that God wanted this … is the man! Unfortunately it is never bad to ‘die’ … we’re not a fairy tale. There is too much injustice!
    Of this I offer you my warmest wishes and the only gift that can make you is to be your fan (with all the affection that I can) … but the greatest gift you do it to me!
    PS one day I will ask for confirmation that you really read these comments!

  450. Jake Brasmer on February 9, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    Hey Mike,

    This is the first time ive ever taken the time to send a message to an artist. I just wanted to say that your music is great. Your music has inspired me to write some of my own stuff. I loved all of Linkin Park and Fort Minor. The song “Feel Like Home” really hit me. My grandfather is dying of cancer and that line “And my grandfathers face is stuck in my mind and how seeing him tonights gonna be the last time” it tore me up. Cause its hard getting by thinking that everytime i see him could be the last. Anyway, Thanks for making great music and keep it up.

    Your Fan Jake W. Brasmer

  451. sayyida on February 5, 2010 at 10:58 pm

  452. Eric on February 5, 2010 at 10:43 pm

    Hi Mike,

    Huge fan of your music but also a big fan of your art. Specificly I really like your “SONG” piece and was wondering if there was a chance that you would ever make it available via litho or giclee’. Don’t know if you would ever concider that but if you do I’m sure you would make a lot of us fan happy! Good luck in the new year Mike!

  453. sara on February 5, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    mike you are the only one that i really love really really… i ask u plz answer me “what do you thnik about iran” here that i leave…

  454. makka on February 5, 2010 at 8:25 am

    Hi Mike !!!!! That’s me again! I particularly do not speak English. I am from Russia. Certainly, I remain your fan forever, because your line of verse offend my soul, and in them I see my life … seriously … I hope Google translator will carry up to you all … and for me a great happiness that you read is …

  455. Vanni on February 5, 2010 at 5:24 am

    hello mike,
    I’m a fan of Linkin Park for 10 years and finally I can tell you (through you) something that is a life that I have to tell you!
    First of all I apologize for the presence of some error, but in English are not very good and I am doing helping my dear ‘friend’ Google translator!
    Ok … top …
    thing I wanted to say was THANK YOU! You have done so much for me, you were the ‘best friend’ that I never had! Through your music I grew up and learned to fight! So thank you so much for everything … you are everything to me!

  456. Stephanny on February 4, 2010 at 5:17 pm

    omg i cant believe im leaving u a message XD!
    ok i dont wanna look like a crazy fan and bother u but i have a little question
    is it true that you are coming to Chile???
    i read it in a page and I’ll like to know if thats true so i can save some money 😉
    i dont wanna lose the opportunity to say how much i admire u and of course your work, even though you’ve heard it like millions of times
    many hugs from Chile!!
    hope some day you can come, i swear that you’re not gonna regret it 😉

  457. Tilidin on February 4, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Hey Mike,

    First of all: Thanks for the great music you and your Band does, because the mood of every song is different and some of these texts help me out through some hard times.
    But the most astounding part for me is, that you are so energetic, i can’t believe it. Gratuated High School as one of the youngest students, working on an new album, alongside making some other tracks, collaboration with the iPhone Game to exhibit an artshow, being here and there, got a family life, and so on. Admirable!
    Where do you take all that energy? I know you are ambitious, but was it all along your life? I’m not so ambitious, so tell me what is your inducement to carry on with all that stuff??

  458. Rajesh on February 4, 2010 at 3:01 pm

    Hello Mike..
    I hope you read this. the lyrics of all songs of Hybrid and Meteora is just amazing, very intense, deep, gives the real feel, a great piece of work. The lyrics are so strong that one can rely on them when going through a tough time. But I do not see the same intense,deep, real lyrics in Minutes to Midnight,Fort Minor.

  459. Jo_o8 on February 4, 2010 at 3:47 am

    I find that the videos are not loading as fast as they used to.

  460. Jean on February 3, 2010 at 9:49 pm

    I just received in the mail one of your fantastic posters. I didn’t even know I had won! It will be matted and hung with pride in my home. Loved seeing the show at JAM…your work is incredible. Have loved Linkin Park from the very beginning. I am blessed to be one of the 140 who won. Thanks for using your art to help make L.A. and beyond a much better place to live.

  461. Dave on February 3, 2010 at 5:38 pm

    Yo Mike,

    I’m Dave a student at Penn State majoring in Business Management thinking about law but honestly I have no clue what I want to do. I’ve loved rap and hiphop for a while, and I’m very familiar with a lot of different rappers including yourself. Whenever I have free time, or even when I’m doing work, I find myself writing rhymes, memorizing rhymes, and all this. I don’t know how this site works or if you answer these posts for real, but if you do I have a few questions that I’d love to ask if you would e-mail me at the address I put above. Thanks man, and if not, keep it up with the rapping man, you’re brilliant.

  462. Manish Sidhu on February 3, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    hey mike…:)

  464. REVEALED ONLY UPON RESPONSE on February 2, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    I’ve listened to that broadcast of yours. I know just what’s on your mind.

  465. Georgina Johnson on February 2, 2010 at 12:48 pm

    Hi Mike, I love your music and your artwork!!! I think you are a really talented guy!!! It doesn’t matter how many awards you win, to me your still the greatest. Most of my friends don’t like LP, they listen to people like rihanna, lady gaga and chavy/girlie stuff. I think it’s great that you’re doing download to donate, it really encourages people that listen to your music. Anyway, i hope you all have a great year and i hope to see you in England some time soon!!!! George xxx

  466. SEVA on February 2, 2010 at 10:03 am

    Hello Mike))) My name’s Seva. I’m from Saint-Petersburg. I’m 14. I love Linkin Park, I love your creative work. You are very beatiful musician. I have a question. Why you write a songs???

  469. makka on January 30, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    Hello, Mike!!!! Write me by mail please!! I would be very happy!! Write at least what you’re doing and how are things going … I beg you !!!!! Mike you’re the best! You have a wonderful son! I love the way you pick a rhyme! You’re a very cool guy!

  470. Graham Bennie on January 30, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    Hay, no easy way to put this, but im a budding lyric writer, and I have no way of telling If what I write is any good. Im really into Linkin Park and Fort Minor and are both my greatest influences, and so my lyrics alot like those of Mike Shinoda, well the flow is anyways. So, to the point, if i posted them on here would people give me feedback, and i know this is a long shot, do you think Shinoda would notice them

    To anyone who reads this, thanks very much, and please get back to me at : graham_bennie@hotmail.com

  471. makka on January 30, 2010 at 8:31 am

    Привет MIKE!!!!!Очень люблю твою музыку, день не начнется если я тебя не послушаю!!!Тащусь от Тебя, обожаю вас всех в LINKIN PARK!!!!!Всегда знала, что LINKIN PARK and FORT MINOR – THE BEST!!!!!Желаю тебе дальнейших творческих успехов, MIKE…..

  483. LTAndros on January 25, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    Hi Mike,

    I like the look of the new site.
    You should check the D on the banner… The new one is very good but the old was perfect. The way it looks now is mikeshinooa.com 🙂
    But if the banner is the way you want it to, I’m cool with it. You’re the one who went to art school, I’m just an IT engineer.

    Love your music and art. The background image is dope!
    Looking forward to a new awesome record, because I know you guy, you’ll deliver it!

    So enjoy doing what you do best, music, art, bloging. We are here to appreciate it!

    LTAndros, Portugal

    Hi Mr. Shinoda, My name is Jason Archimandritis, currently a music student(studying classical guitar but my focus being jazz) at Ithaca college, I really admire your work (both Fort Minor and Linkin Park) and was wondering if there was any possibility of interning with you, being that I’m in school I have time free during the summer break (middle may to end of august) and winter break (end of december to end of january)
    Thank you
    Jason Archimandritis

    I do like the new layout and must say I am very impressed with the background image. Is that your work? I have one of your art books but don’t recognize the background image. I also have to say that I am very grateful to you and this blog keeping the fans in the loop. That video of you interviewing with GBC was funny man.

    I will try to add my input now and again. Keep up the great work in all that you do, you are an inspiration to me and many others. Thank you

    new look, it’s good! 😉 good job!

  555. zaneroks94 on January 19, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    hey, love hearing about updates on basically anything new going on with Linkin Park. So this is your new beta version of your mikeshinoda.com. I like it, but you might wanna change the turquoise bar on top and bottom…that’s a little weird. Or at least make it a little more unique, more than just a plain one color bar….at some of your art in it or something detailed. It’ll make it just pop. I personally like drawing lines that look like tree engravings….very sick design. So does the color of this new site signify the color of possibly what direction Linkin Park is going in by any chance??? Dunno, just a far fetched guess lol. But I would like to ask you a question….if you were to describe the color of the new album, how would you describe it? For instance to me, hybrid theory-dark grayish blue, Meteora-heavy red, Minutes to Midnight-white pure color, New Divide-a changing of color from Hybrid Theory’s dark blue changing to a electronic redish purple color just like how you music is changing from the electronic hybrid theory sound to the futuristic modern electronic sound. well thanks anyways!

  556. Thomas on January 19, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    Awesome re-design. It’s beautiful. A huge change from the last layout.
    Congratulations on the change and keep it on!

  557. Kaeru on January 19, 2010 at 11:19 am

    hey kenji-kun
    i have to told you that this comment feature won’t work with all browser!
    i’m a little bit disappoint because there was no comment last night and i was afraid that i’m the first one who send you a welcome back message, but it seems like you don’t have get the message (T-T)

    (^-^) your new design is awesome you know i love green hehe

  558. Parker on January 19, 2010 at 11:05 am

    I have one more (but I’m not sure if it’s a problem or you did it on purpose) on the main page I see the post on a grey background and when I click on “Read more” there is no grey background any more.
    did you forget about it or it was made on purpose – I don’t know. Just letting you know ;]

  559. Parker on January 19, 2010 at 11:02 am

    There are some problems with time.

    Besides, the site looks really good. I like colors and the background. Posting comments is much easier. Everything loads much faster.

    Good job!

  560. Maneita on January 19, 2010 at 10:58 am

    Mike congrats for the change!!! WordPress Rocks!
    The Layout looks great as usual!. But I expected so much things in the site 😉

    New design is really cool, there is no problem with the site I’m happy with that=)

  564. William Lathrop on January 19, 2010 at 5:46 pm

    Suhweet update to the site. It works and loads a lot faster on my BlackBerry than the old site. That means more mshinoda.com on the go, a great way to pass class time.

    Keep up the good work

  565. Morinoajin on January 19, 2010 at 5:32 pm

    Message to all LP haters… is the title! I agree with this video 🙂 XD

    PS. The comments will have up to 700 characters like before?

  567. Niloufar on January 19, 2010 at 5:04 pm

    Sorry to post another comment, I know the rule here but I was the first to comment and I think memebers are searching for a “sign in to comment” so I think you need to explain about the new commenting system and you should set that “one person, one comment” thing again, thanks Mike 🙂

  568. Melisa on January 19, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    love the new site mike it looks great so far!

  569. Niloufar on January 19, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    Hey Mike! congrats! the new design is really cool, I love it! it looks awesome! there’s only one thing, there’s no member sign in anymore, right?

    Hello Mike! You’d done very interesting your blog execution & I like green colour very much in this thing (my favourite colour). And now each may post comments even he hasn’t LP.com registration as I see. It’s cool! I like your new blog! Thank you, Mike. Wish a great day for you & your family;)

  609. Alfred Borden on January 19, 2010 at 10:33 am

  610. Ana A. on January 19, 2010 at 10:30 am

    Hey, Mike. I LOVE IT.
    Also love the mobile version!! However, I just found out it doesn’t work for all phones? Or well…mobile devices? XD

    New RSS feed, I think: http://mikeshinoda.com/feed/
    Because my mail app for the mac no longer wants to get your news from your old feed, lol.

  611. lovablefreak on January 19, 2010 at 9:17 am

    i like the new colour. it looks awesome. but what about the size of the page??? i know, the screen of my laptop is a bit bigger than usually, but it just seems a bit strange to me that the whole page is like pinned on the left hand side of the screen and doesn’t fill it out completely. i don’t know, it just looks a bit unfinished. maybe it is, but hey, then you can still fix this… 😉 all in all, great blog as always, mike! thumbs up!

  612. Mika on January 19, 2010 at 9:05 am

    that’s a freakin’ awesome new design ! maybe less clear but i like it =)
    i’ve tried many links and all of them worked. good job !

  613. f_sanchez91 on January 19, 2010 at 8:27 am

    Just a test!!! It’s off my mobile.

  614. Dano on January 19, 2010 at 8:10 am

    Hiya Mike!… I want you to know that this is the first time ever that I have gone to someones website and commented!.. I’m not usually social on the internet other than sending questions to sellers on eBay… LOL… My wife is into MySpace and FaceBook, but that’s just not my thing… Anyway, I just wanted to say that I have been a huge fan of Linkin Park since Hybrid Theory!… I love the music you guys produce!… If I were to create my own music, it would sound very much like what you put out because of your beats and collaboration with rock… I have yet to find another bad that sounds like Linkin Park, so if anyone asks me who my favorite band is, I tell them Linkin Park… And that unusual around here (East Tennessee)… Most people I know like either classic rock, or country… But I’m of a new age where rock/hip hop is cool… So keep doing what you’re doing because I don’t know where I would be without you guys and I don’t know what I would do if you quick making music!… LOL… Also I really love Fort Minor, and as soon as you get a chance to produce a new Fort Minor album, then I would definitely love to own it!… One last thing… Hurry up and put out the new Linkin park album!… I am dying to hear it!… Thanks for everything you guys do!… Much love from my family to yours and all the other member of Linkin Park!


  615. ANDiTKO on January 19, 2010 at 8:08 am

    Hello Mike! Can you please enable the RSS Feeds of your main blog? I cant see the RSS link icon on the homepage “http://mikeshinoda.com”. I only see RSS links when i press on “Blog Topics”

    Also i have made some Fort Minor/Linkin Park Mixes that i want to show you.How can i send them to you?

    Check out my Fort Minor – Remember the name [Electro Mix By ANDiTKO] on Youtube And please let me know if you like it!!!

    Oh…. and feel free to post it on your blog!I would love that!

  616. Shinigami on January 19, 2010 at 7:43 am

    Yeah, sorry for the second one, i’m sloooooooooooow. The thing that you can post only one comment to a blog-post was really GREAT. Would like to see it back 😉

  617. Shinigami on January 19, 2010 at 7:41 am

    The new design is cool!! I like it way better, maybe ’cause it’s darker…adore dark colours…everything works fine for now. But i think the way to post a comment was better the old way, imho.

  618. Damla on January 19, 2010 at 7:21 am
