Linkin Park MySpace Featuring You Winner

July 29, 2010

We found our winner.

In the past few weeks, the band, our management, MySpace, and our friends sifted through the thousands of submissions.Β  We searched the top 100, and then we went deeper.Β  Using randomly-generated recommendations on Indaba, and searching by date, we found 20 finalists.

A few days ago, my bandmates and I listened to the top 20.Β  We voted, and we’ve got a winner.

The winner……will be announced this weekend.

  14. neviel47 on July 30, 2010 at 3:22 am

    really nice! the winner was so lucky!

    hey guys i found this clip in youtube.. really nice version of ‘the catalyst’… like then old LP style music!

    6 months ago I had a dream that I was in the studio producing a very famous Rock band, and adding some guitars to their song. When I woke up, I remembered everything very clearly, except for the name of the band. I havenΒ΄t picked up a guitar in over 5 years, but this song needed one, so I put new strings on my 1984 Custom Strat, and started working on some ideas for this track. As I sat here in the studio, I suddenly felt that I had done this before, which was impossible, because I didnΒ΄t have the studio 5 years ago. I had a flashback to the dream, it was all exactly the same as it was in my dream.

    The winner has to be either The Maniac All-Stars, Alex Mcmillan, Dan Voicians, or Martin Harp, but I have a feeling it is The Maniac All-Stars cause their remix was AWESOME in my humble opinion – listen for yourself:

  17. aninhalp on July 30, 2010 at 1:45 am

    I am very anxious! I’m dying to hear “The Catalyst” !! πŸ˜‰

  19. Moepi on July 29, 2010 at 11:46 pm

    No, actually I had a nightmare. (it’s 9 am now..)
    really, I dreamed some strange stuff. Chester lost his voice and Rob sang ‘With You’, while Chester was just jumping up and down. You were walking in the crowd. And LP had playback. And the playback didn’t work.
    I hope my dream will never come true Γ².Γ³
    Hey, one year ago was your concert in Stuttgart πŸ˜€
    See you there in October πŸ™‚
    And I’ve got a question. Do you think it is possible to give you a portrait, when I manage to get into first row? I drew a lot lately and last year. So I have to gift, sell, or burn them. I need some space.

  20. zzaacc on July 29, 2010 at 11:37 pm

    haha how could we not see this coming? its LP after all.

    btw mike, i think u should post something in regards to all the controversy surrounding the The Catalyst preview. Something NEEDS to be said. unless ur choosing to ignore all the haters of the bands direction, in that case, lol.

    single comes out 2 days before my bday πŸ™‚

  21. chsirish73 on July 29, 2010 at 10:52 pm

    I really wish the album;s great because I just got bitched out from my mom for buying an album for 112 dollars(approximately). I trust you guys have since you’ve always done well, and I hope you continue because I’ll have to deal with this for weeks.

  22. vishalhd on July 29, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    DUDE!!! =) Can’t wait to see. Congrats to the winner. Well since i got owned in all respects for this contest, couldn’t even enter, i think you guys would get a kick outta mine πŸ™‚ I wish LP would see my try at a remix. πŸ™‚

  23. slowlearner32 on July 29, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    I really enjoyed the contest. Thanks Mike!

  24. legnahidden on July 29, 2010 at 7:08 pm

    My heart is beating like crazy, we’ll see who is the winner, i’d like to know who was in the top 20 as well,

    by the way, check out my submission guys and let me know what you think!

    Thanks for giving us a chance to do this, it’s was crazy!!!

    Best wishes for the new album!! hope one day you come to Paraguay!

  25. thenewfoshizzle on July 29, 2010 at 6:15 pm

    …You’re a dick. =(

    I’m not even entered in the contest and I was waiting, holding my breath while the page loads, just for THAT.

    Are you going to mention who the top 20 were, or do some sort of honorable mention type thing for others who didn’t win but were still awesome?

  26. smokins on July 29, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    i don’t know why you guys keep delaying stuff, im sure you’re busy and im sure its for the best, but com’on you guys its starting to get really annoying…

    you know its good that you are communicating with fans and doing cool stuff and sharing a lot with them, but you know anticipation for too long sux..

  27. whitepegacorn on July 29, 2010 at 5:24 pm

    Crap. I’m away this weekend. With no internetz.

  28. argol8489 on July 29, 2010 at 5:23 pm

    and the winner is …. is …. is ….. mmmmm ….( drums) (emotion) (suspended)
    more drums …. πŸ™‚

  29. Karlyn on July 29, 2010 at 5:07 pm

    SO looking forward to it! I am gonna grab the album as soon it is out!

  30. dicarloproductions on July 29, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Well, I hope you picked my DICARLO DEJA VU MIX, but even if you didnΒ΄t, I hope you will listen again, because I created a great “LIVE” arrangement for you guys to do at your live shows.
    Thanks for giving us the chance to do this.
    YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!!!


  31. cincybmxlpfreak on July 29, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    Ahh…sooo close!! I was in 210th place! πŸ˜› At least you guys listened to a lot of people’s works. Seems like the contest was quite fair. Can’t wait to hear the winner’s remix. πŸ™‚

  32. haw13200 on July 29, 2010 at 3:24 pm

    And that, Mr. Shinoda, was not very nice lol =]

  33. lipa84 on July 29, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    I hope it will be Alex McMillan…think his part sounds more like LP. He knows the sound better than anyone other…of course, LP πŸ™‚

  34. frequentc on July 29, 2010 at 2:54 pm

    OMG! I think I just had a heart attack!? I know that everyone who entered the contest is on pins and needles awaiting the announcement (myself included). To them I say; “God bless us everyone” (The song is permanently burned into my brain at this point … Thank goodness it’s an awesome one!) Hmmmm … Any chance we’ll get a sneak peek at the top 20 list before the official announcement?

  35. mrmmusictech on July 29, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    well since the contest is over anyways.. just try listening to mine =) hope you enjoy

  36. janashinoda on July 29, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    you just killed me mikee I’m dying to hear it!
    I have check a lot of remixes and I found a few that sound like Linkin Park, anyways I know that everyone on the contest gave an incredible energy into this but comon’ they got the perfect judge to be selected as a winner.
    I trust on Linkin Park even my own life I know they will choose the best.
    Congrats to the winner!

  37. alexlp2k8 on July 29, 2010 at 2:29 pm

    Can’t wait. I hope the winner is not AlexMcMillan, I’ve heard better remixes out there than his.
    Too bad I couldn’t enter because of the country and age restriction.

  38. lucidofelice on July 29, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    I predict that the winner will be a total dark horse. There were plenty of great entries in the top 100, and even narrowing it down to 20 had to be painful. I would have hated to be a judge.

  39. pr3mium on July 29, 2010 at 2:16 pm


    Will this be released with the album or with the original version of the single? I’m guessing the album, but everyone can already get it downloaded once they know who the winner was.

  40. lode1989 on July 29, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    I go for Alex McMilan, but actually as long the winner can make some good music because we all have to listen to it. The winner will be so lucky. I am wondering if it’s gonna be a remix on the album or a new song with the guys on the album.

  41. LisaD82 on July 29, 2010 at 1:56 pm

    I know people already said this but I’m gonna say it again… Shinoda, you’re a tease! But I bet you love every second of it. lmfao.

    Can’t wait to find out who won. πŸ™‚

  42. kathyxx on July 29, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    you’re such a tease

  43. thegluelpfan on July 29, 2010 at 1:53 pm

    I bet it’s Alex’s.Or linkingabo’s.Or XFusion’s.Yeah anyway can’t wait to hear who it is πŸ™‚

  44. thedenmaster on July 29, 2010 at 1:33 pm

    One of the best ones (electro/punk) didn’t make it into the contest.
    hear it here:

  45. rdedre on July 29, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    NOOOOO You’re such a teaser!! πŸ˜€ I’m soo waiting for the new single. Congrats to the winner!

  46. girawrlp on July 29, 2010 at 1:14 pm

    Whyy must we wait, Mike?! The next few days are gonna be a longgg wait until we find out. I’m sure whoever you chose did an amazing job. πŸ™‚ I cannot wait!!

  47. limdig on July 29, 2010 at 1:02 pm

    Does this mean that there will be 16 tracks on the album? Because there are 15 already plus the Featuring You track

  48. luki9875 on July 29, 2010 at 1:00 pm

    Very cool….. this will be the longest weekend of this year waiting for the annoucment of this and then waiting for monday….. πŸ˜€

    I am so excited to see who won. There were over 2,000 submissions.

    BTW, I joined Digg, and added you. After some looking around, I figured it would be a could place to promote my book and my blog.

  50. redefenition on July 29, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Hey Mike, it’d be awesome if you let us in on the top 20 picks, it’d be inspiring to the musicians on the list. It’d be awesome to find out if I made the top twenty or not πŸ˜€

  51. souneik on July 29, 2010 at 12:42 pm

    LOL nooooo!(girl scream) Don’t tell me yet, I want this feeling like I actually did something okay, to ride out. Ah, but no Doubt, That was fun, Congratulations to winner!
