Brad and I – The Catalyst World Premiere

August 2, 2010

Listening to The Catalyst world premiere at KROQ, Los Angeles. Yay!

EDIT: the video above didn’t work.  But this one (below) does…it was the #1 video of the day on YouTube, across all genres.  Congrats to Mr. Hahn on an excellent trailer.

    hi mike i just want to know what is the meaning of the song “the catalyst”. and what does the verse “will we burn inside the fire of a thousand suns” mean

  2. bigbadxandro on August 10, 2010 at 6:28 am

    It sounds great Mike! Nice!

  3. troublev on August 6, 2010 at 12:44 pm

  12. linkinparkforever275 on August 3, 2010 at 6:54 am

    The video above is working for me! Nice to see how brad is totally in this song!!! You did such a perfect thing with the catalyst 🙂 its more than i could expected!! YOu guys will be the number one forever! Proud to be a part of it (LPU,LPA,LPN,LP,,LP Streetteam)

  13. curlylp on August 3, 2010 at 6:26 am

    Finally we can listen the whole song. 😀 I like the song, it’s awesome!! Congrats, it is a great song. I listened it on BBC radio 1 and i was on twitter with my friends that are LP fans and we were all excited to listen it and after the song we were like “WOW *.*”!! Only a few of people didn’t like it… But i’m very excited to listen the whole album. I’m sure that is gonna be a great album. Btw, yesterday was awesome with your chats! I had a lot of fun. haha Thank you. 😀

  14. fatimalp on August 3, 2010 at 5:17 am

    awesome!! 😀 Thanks for the video, Mike!
    Can’t wait to see the video for The Catalyst!

  15. ines2401 on August 3, 2010 at 3:54 am

    Well guys… my favorite album is Hybrid Theory. I also like the style from Meteora and Minutes to Midnight. Hope ‘A thousand suns’ will be the next in my list, but this song… I don’t know… I like it from “Lift me up, let me go” (3:25). The first part of the song is to much electro in my opinion. Loud, hectic … don’t like it very much.

    I really hope that the rest from the album will not sound like the first minutes of ‘The Catalyst’. It’s not that kind of music I like to listen to.. 😦

    Don’t get me wrong… there are really awesome parts in this song. Mike & Chester singing together, the drums, the lyrics, the piano, much power. But this electro-thing doesn’t fit :/

  16. Aditya_the_warrior_within on August 3, 2010 at 1:01 am

    The Catalyst is too good! In fact one of the best made!

    The most funny part is in the entire song the name of the song ‘The Catalyst’ is not mentioned at all!
    And instead the album name ‘A Thousand Suns’ is significantly highlighted…
    whatever is the reason nice way of advertising the record 😉

    well just can’t wait for ATS!
    thank god i’m so wise enough to pre-order (everything of) ATS 🙂
    I was shouting and singing it during premier when it ended my pop came yelling me to stop 😛 (2 AM here in India that time)

  17. lpmaria on August 2, 2010 at 11:52 pm


  18. linkinparkette on August 2, 2010 at 10:45 pm

    really awesome i love that video :] and the full song is amazing cant wait til the video and sept 14

  19. zahralp on August 2, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    it was night for me it was my 18TH BIRTH DAY and i was checking me email with dial up just to check if the songs in it, cuz i got the pre sale then i saw the chat in flooding sooo i went to the lpu chat and i got the link to the bbc thing and i heard the SONG!!! and u and chester talked after that and the song was repeated and OMG i got the song in my email!!!I LOVED IT !!!

    i judged the song my self as if it wasnt a lp song and i really loved it!

  20. aravind221 on August 2, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    mike it was an ultimate experience 811 ,99 i have never heard any live premiere on stream , i was online at 1.00 am midnight FRM India , BBC

  21. fenix2exe on August 2, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    It’s different and original, it’s a genre busting track and it was worth the wait you guys rock thanks for share with us your awesome talent!!! And also great job Joe!!!

  22. smokins on August 2, 2010 at 8:56 pm

    wow man, the track was awesome, the album version is even better, it took me a while to get it, now i cant listen to anything else, so good job, the new style is incredible and indescribable, you have to listen to it to get whats its all about…

  23. harry288 on August 2, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Mike and Linkin Park thank you for this absolutely epic single!!! I don’t really know how to describe it, but it’s different (“genre-busting”), fresh, meaningful, emotional, and spectacular. When I heard it on the radio I was literally awestruck. If the tracks on the album are even half as good (and I have faith that they will exceed that), it will be the BEST ALBUM EVER! However, I have a question. On iTunes there is the deluxe version of A Thousand Suns, which includes additional exciting content such as “A Thousand Suns: The Full Experience”, the video for The Catalyst and Blackbirds. If I pre-ordered the album on the site (DVD/CD set), do I get this content too? Thanks!

  24. blumpkinxlover on August 2, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Sorry, but this song is complete crap. Now dont get me wrong, I love LP, I mean, have the damn cover of Hybrid Theory tattoed on my right calf. But this song is honestly something I dont want to listen to. Im not saying you’ve sold out, im saying that you are trying to be so experimental that it all folds onto itself and creates a mess. I can even hear any instrument besides drums. I will still buy this album because I have hope that it will be better, but not much hope at all.

  25. brittony on August 2, 2010 at 7:51 pm

    Loving the new song, can’t wait for the video and the rest of the album! Any chance you can post up the official lyrics?

  26. chefflez on August 2, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    The initial build up and the piano breakdown are pure genius. Congrats on creating and delivering something truly fresh and amazing. (AGAIN.)

  27. nillp on August 2, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    when you said that THE CATALYST would be different of anything we’ve ever heard, i didn’t imagine it would be that much..!
    i got really surprised by what i heard; is a different song in every way.. this one don’t have the same characteristics of the other LP songs.. but deep down, somehow, you know it’s Linkin Park.. and that’s amazing!
    i was in the middle of my class of microcontrollers when i heard THE CATALYST on the radio (but that’s another story i’ll tell you another time lol) and i can’t describe what i felt.. do you know when something touches your heart and you start to cry in such a way that has no explanation?!
    so.. congratulations and thanks once again. ❤

  28. argol8489 on August 2, 2010 at 6:58 pm

    At the beginning of the song cost me a bit of work to understand. But in my inaccuracies aprocimadamente 3:23 minutes was as follows:”wowwww.” It incleible as the song in its various phases connects each note and turns into a short trip, leaving you with a feeling of there will be hear next. Congratulations for giving us this small part of sunlight that we and many in our ipod hehehe. Thanks for always putting attention to their fans, to give quality work, please continue making her best effort and heart into each disc and each composition.Personally, thanks for the opportunity to be in this generation of linkin park soldiers MUCHAS GRACIAS LP Y MIKE

  29. rafayazoo on August 2, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    Awesome song, waiting not for the best album, just waiting for an album fuc*ing awesome like u guys always do, and make us happy.

  30. rade916 on August 2, 2010 at 6:41 pm

    I’ve listened to it over and over and its growing on me, however if the entire album has a techno/electronic vibe to it instead of the rock/rap style I’m going to be a little disappointed. I understand growing is all a part of REAL music, and I respect the living hell outta you guys for that, but you guys seem to be growing away from being a rock band and turning into something else entirely. I felt like the first half of the song was a little too rave like and out of place, and the second half seemed more like you guys. Like I said though, its growing on me…

  31. Julian on August 2, 2010 at 6:05 pm

    Cool song, great job guys! Can’t wait for ATS!

  32. penguingod12 on August 2, 2010 at 5:26 pm

    Full of energy, and full of surprises, this is an absolute masterpiece. I love how you guys keep evolving, yet somehow manage to keep the essence of linkin park alive, this surpassed my expectations, great job!

  33. jdennis88 on August 2, 2010 at 5:22 pm

    After Minutes to Midnight, I didn’t think you’d be able to surprise me again. But you proved me wrong, Shinoda! =]

  34. justbiteme9 on August 2, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    I think you are awesome!!! What I love about you is that you make music for yourselves and that’s important for me because it shows how dedicated you are and that you are not a sellout band that makes music only for money, you make music because you really love to make music and I respect and admire that, so much.

    Also, I wasn’t sure about the song at the very beggining, but it really sounds amazing, so new and fresh… love it!!! Thank you so much, without a doubt it was so worth the wait.

    I think you know… true LP fans are the ones supporting this because we know what kind of band you are, and you made us a lot more opened to new stuff.

    Really guys, THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  35. lp1000suns on August 2, 2010 at 4:32 pm

    Hey Mike, the new single is totally awesome, don’t listen to ppl that they say : You guys should back to old LP, don’t listen to these guys ever, coz you guys are growing, and you have the opportunity to do something different and challenging and its great to do it I hope the other songs are gonna be new Hardcore and aggressive also has some rap !

  36. hybrid911 on August 2, 2010 at 4:13 pm

    I really wanted to love this song but I can’t. I respect you guys are changing but I can’t help but feel you’ve gone and forgotten the hardcore fans who got you where you are today. It’s like LP are catering for new fans and obviously if you guys are happy losing fans then so be it. I’ve been a hard core fan since I was 8 (I’m 19) but I feel your sound has grown away from fans like me who have turned to heavier music. Ofcourse that’s not LPs fault but it’s a damned shame I can’t recognize you anymore. I miss how you guys cared so much about every aspect of the band and now you’re losing that and aren’t the LP I love. Thanks for the past 10 years LP, I’ve enjoyed the ride ❤

  37. nlopezdearenosa on August 2, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    Thank you for ten years and counting of amazement, for all your hard work, for all your surprises…. Simply amazing. I was up since 6am since I thought it would be in the morning hours like before, but it was worth it! haha
    One question… my friends and I are debating… at the beginning seconds of “lift me up…” … Mike K. Shinoda, is that YOU singing?! If it is, as amazing as “In Between”! I love your voice. Take care! Anxious for September!

  38. austinlp on August 2, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    You guys never cease to amaze. after almost 3 & 1/2 since “What I’ve Done”/ MTM, this was great. I love the progression; I felt like i was listening to a different song by the end.

  39. crazyforlinkinpark65 on August 2, 2010 at 3:54 pm

    -Screams- BAD ASS MIKE! BAD ASS! I’m SOOOOO Pumped for september! Me and my friends were like “Okay Faith, Press THE BUTTON.” And we listened to it, and FREAKED! Love ya guys! Keep on rocking!

  40. slowlearner32 on August 2, 2010 at 3:35 pm

    Just heard The Catalyst…Amazing!!! The song has blown away my foolish worry!!! Thanks Mike, Thanks LP!!!

  41. chilibilly18 on August 2, 2010 at 3:17 pm


  42. angelsrc79 on August 2, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Kudos to you guys! I think I echo a lot of sentiment when I say that I’m really proud to call myself an LP fan. Someone told me today that you guys could produce utter crap and I’d still love it, but I don’t feel like I have to ever worry about that. You guys USE the talent and genius you ALL have to move and grow and not get stuck on repeat. Those who don’t like you after M2M came out just don’t like change. Continue to grow and continue to amaze. You will ALWAYS have my support!

  43. caselimor on August 2, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    I disagree with MANTVYDASD, I think this song absolutely REEKS of energy and drama.

    Great job on the single, LP! The song is AWESOME, especially the outro drums and the lyrics. The way it the song builds up then goes back down is just EPIC. I can’t wait to hear the new album.

  44. nikkiann0100 on August 2, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Sounds great! Especially the ending. Love the vocals. Dan from KPBI in Denver wants email responses so they can decide whether to play it again or not, so im hoping enough people say they love it.

  45. haw13200 on August 2, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    I love the new song! And I love that you guys as a band are branching out and trying new things! I hate it when people say “you should go back to your old sound” because even though Meteora is still my fav album, hearing a band grow and change is awesome =] Can’t wait for the next American tour when you guys hit Colorado!! =]
    Much love,

  46. pkleck on August 2, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    Wow, Mike.. Okay, I have a lot to say.

    When I first heard the seeds, I loved the Outro Drums, and I liked the Piano. Everything else, from the lyrics to synth sound… I wasn’t really feeling it.

    As for the little snippets you gave us over time, as well as a majority of the song in the MOH trailer… Yeah, wasn’t feeling those either.

    I mean, it wasn’t that they were bad, just not the LP I fell in love with. I still consider Hybrid Theory to be your strongest album. Period. That said, I was still stoked to hear the new album. It’ll be good, like MTM, but I was preparing for another relative disappointment.

    to be continued… 🙂

  47. lpalltheway on August 2, 2010 at 2:23 pm

    despite of ppl who hate this song i actually enjoy u guys experimenting because if it was the same sound over and over again i wouldve stopped being a fan a long time ago. u guys want to develop and arent afraid to take risks; its excting and awesome to hear something different and new out of u and although it strays away from ur old stuff i rlly enjoyed the energy of it 😛 u guys just prove 2 me all the time how versatile and creative u guys can be when it come to making music

  48. rglcao on August 2, 2010 at 2:21 pm

    I can’t get used to the song yet, doesn’t mean that I don’t like it. I like parts of it, not the whole thing. But anyway I’m waiting for the album, and I’ll be at Velez Stadium on October 7th. Greetings!

  49. juliusjay on August 2, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    Got to love them haters huh mike? Lol bought the catalyst single and now I can’t wait to hear rest of the album. Sick job on single. Different and unique once again.

  50. herbertmoon on August 2, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Dave bass…It…it…its on =0.

    Can’t wait for the video, it’s gonna own

  51. mantvydasd on August 2, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Hmmm… I don’t find what I liked in older Linkin Park in The Catalyst. Even the last song before it (I think it was Transformers one), was so much better. This one lacks energy, drama and is just one continuous same.
    I’m not against this techno sound, but songs have to have their its intro, drama, conclusion and finale. This song has just reminders of those.
    I found Linkin Park for myself in 2002, when my primary band I liked, Accept no more existed, and its frontman Udo started to shift their music into “more of the same”. And now Accept have reunited, and will release their album Blood of the Nations on September 14. Their first song Teutonic Terror promises more than Catalyst.

  52. akistarlight on August 2, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    The Catalyst: simply awesome!

  53. alvin121290 on August 2, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    My prediction turned out to be correct, I had figured that this album is gonna be as bad as MTM and there you have it another bull crap album

  54. whosmurry on August 2, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Whoa, talk about a gear-shift. It’s even more different than I expected. But what’s funny is, the things I love about what you guys do, the melodies and lyrics and attitude and all that, it’s still there even in a drastically different sound. It’s just manifesting in a different way. That is to say, I dig it. I can’t wait to hear what else you guys have come up with.

  55. keveike on August 2, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    Can someone please send it to me? !
    I can’t buy it in Belgium via Itunes! ;'(

  56. asianotter on August 2, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Yay for you guys! I bet it must feel amazing to finally be able to share this new soiund with the world. Well done, gentlemen, well done.

    Can’t stop listening to The Catalyst and I can’t wait for A Thousand Suns.

  57. jamesr1292 on August 2, 2010 at 1:31 pm

    i cant even buy it in ireland yet….

    this is really starting to piss me off how again, i cannot hear content on the day of release along with not getting a tour date.

    why is it that we dont get anything over here? maybe this is why illegal downloading etc is getting popular..

  58. xkittiedx on August 2, 2010 at 1:30 pm

    I think you guys did a wonderful job, I love the song and I think it’s amazing. I don’t care what other people say, you guys still kick ass. ❤


  59. linkinparktjejen on August 2, 2010 at 1:26 pm

  60. bergmanlp on August 2, 2010 at 1:19 pm

    Of course I keep loving Lp but this is the first song of Lp that I don’t like..

  61. linkinpark4e on August 2, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    The song is AWESOME!!!!!!!! I love this song…you did a great work!!!
    thank you very much!!!! LP Rulezzzz!!!!!
    can’t wait to hear the album!!! I bet it will be as AWESOME as the song!!!!
    thanks again Mike!!!!!!

  62. pinkwater3 on August 2, 2010 at 1:12 pm

    Linkin Park, I am happy and proud to tell you that you have officially pulled me back in. This song is just epic, there’s no other word for it. There will always be haters, people who don’t appreciate evolution and new directions, but this new direction you’re taking? LOVE IT!

  63. rcm034 on August 2, 2010 at 1:08 pm

    This song is amazing. Mike, you and your bandmates have succeeded yet again at creating pure awesomeness.

    AUD31, open up windows update, and check for any .net updates on there. Windows/microsoft update should fix that. Also, try another web browser.

  64. bergmanlp on August 2, 2010 at 1:06 pm

    I can’t believe how disappointing this song is, MtM was so much better than this…

  65. linkinparkforever275 on August 2, 2010 at 1:05 pm

    This song is soo perfect!!! You did a really really awesome job! I cannot get enough of hearing it! One of the best work of you Linkin Park!! You always be my favorite Band of all time!

  66. keineahnung84 on August 2, 2010 at 1:02 pm

    @xefuzion: AWESOME video!!!!!! ROFLMAO!!!! that’s what the dancefloor formerly known as “pit” will look like, when they play songs from the album live!!!
    Looks like the 90s and eurodance are coming alive again

  67. aud31 on August 2, 2010 at 12:54 pm

    I tried to download the thing form the pre-order but it won’t work!
    I was able to watch the “Meeting A Thousand Suns Preview,” but the other file “Win – Add to iTunes.exe” won’t open. It says I need to install version v2.0.50727 of the .Net Framework… I downloaded the latest version thinking that would work but it didn’t. So I tried to download the right version but it says there’s already one installed. I deleted all the files relating to the first installation but it still won’t download. Help??

  68. cezar6lp on August 2, 2010 at 12:52 pm

    Pretty amazing Mike!
    Continue doing this!!!

    I can’t wait for hear the whole album!

  69. sigou13 on August 2, 2010 at 12:50 pm

    Great work Mike!! The song is epic awesome!!I love it!! Definitely the album will be badass for sure!! 😀

  70. jokob on August 2, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    I am sorry, I have to disagree… the last minute is fine, but the rest… maybe I am old fashioned, but this is the first song of you guys, I don’t like…

  71. leilalp on August 2, 2010 at 12:46 pm

    Thank you guys so much!!!! This song is awesome! I can’t wait to hear full album! A Thousand Suns must be epic!!! I was crying when I heard The Catalyst! We love you so much and I hope You know it!!! You are the best! All of you is genius!

  72. bennunn on August 2, 2010 at 12:44 pm

    Hi Mike,

    I have never been prouder to call myself an LP fan. The Catalyst gave me goosebumps when I heard it. Absoultly amazing! Looking forward to seeing you on the 4th November in Manchester.

    Thanks again,

    Ben Nunn

  73. lode1989 on August 2, 2010 at 12:43 pm

    First thought: OMG… this is really strange.. strange.. Like it, but they must add more things in the song.. people will hate it, ooh no.. ooh no.. (when I heard the song on radio- .. OMFG!! UNPOSSIBLE!! This is the best song ever in History…

  74. rockerellpee on August 2, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    I registered to this site just to say. Holy poo. I need new pants.

    This is so amazing. I never thought in a million years you could outdo my old favorites in one song. I told my friends that I had hoped it would be more like Given Up and Hit the Floor, but no. No no no. I love this already.

  75. spraypaintninkpens on August 2, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    My first reaction: wow, Linkin Park really is selling out. Its very sad to see after being a fan for a decade.

  76. scruff23 on August 2, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    The Catalyst is soo awesome mike! can’t wait to have the new album out, already pre-ordered and really want to hear the rest of the album! heard the song on Radio 1 soo awsome!!!!

  77. ibequa on August 2, 2010 at 12:30 pm

    Mike, except this single will be any additional tracks? lives, etc. ?

  78. alyeska39 on August 2, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    I have insane timing. I saw that someone had said about an hour ago that you guys were on KROQ, so I casually went to turn the stream on to see if y’all were still there maybe, and *right* when I turned it on I hear “Hi it’s Brad and Mike from Linkin Park and here’s the premier of The Catalyst. [cue music]” So, yeah, that was great.

    In other news, The Catalyst is simply amazing. The song literally made my jaw drop.

  79. vectormorph on August 2, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    Mike i cant stop listening to it you have done the LP fans Proud!!!!

    by far the best linkin park sound you guys have made. well done!!! its just so good!!

  80. irelandwantslp on August 2, 2010 at 12:19 pm

    Aww congrats!

    Really love The Catalyst 😀 Heard it on Myspace

    The band is evolving, im with you guys all the way xD

  81. thegluelpfan on August 2, 2010 at 12:17 pm

    All I can say is that I’m proud to call myself a Linkin Park fan.You got the guts to put out your music without caring about people’s opinion,just caring about the quality and the feeling to it.And I love it.Amazing job on The Catalyst,can’t wait to go on to the next journey with you-A Thousand Suns 🙂

  82. fatimalp on August 2, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    Congratulations guys! You did a great job! The Catalyst is AMAZING! I Love it! Thank you! :’) ❤

  83. lplovei on August 2, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    Yay! is right buddy!!!! I love the song. You are a music genius.

  84. tse333 on August 2, 2010 at 12:16 pm

    Ustream us!!!

  85. evooba on August 2, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    I dunno if you saw my tweets or not about the song, my twitter name is, dun dun dun “Alexandra_Nofi” if you are in the mood for some feedback 😀

    There is something about the song that makes me want to eat it but no matter how many times I nom on it I never feel full. That’s how addictive it is.
