Linkin Park Underground Summit: Adele “Rolling In The Deep” cover

June 22, 2011

We held another LP Underground Summit in Hamburg yesterday.Β  It was a fun one; the fans got together for mini golf, they walked our stage and played our instruments, I did a tour of the backstage with a group, Phoenix did a chat, we met everyone, talked, and signed autographs.

After the signing and a Q and A session, Chester and I wanted to play something special for everyone:

    I’m addicted to Chester’s voice. Cnt live a day without hear him singing.

  2. thegluelpfan on July 14, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    To this day I can’t get over how amazing Chester’s voice is…and I’ll try my hardest to be on the next lpu summit

    Chester, you sing this song very very well πŸ˜€ perhaps you sing it better than her πŸ˜€

  7. minouh82 on June 30, 2011 at 10:50 am

    Hi Mike! I’m sending this, because this is _really_ important.
    I’m a little red haired girl from Finland, the land of snow and Santa Claus. I live in small town called Pori.
    I work at (a probaply worlds smallest?) pizzeria, where I’m wasting my talents as a singer and other performances. My voice would match perfectly with yours, so thats why I’m writing this.
    You should _r e a l l y_ check me out!
    I don’t have an opportunity to make any demo or anything to send anyone, because lack of money.Sad but so true. Sounds desperate, but thats what I am. I’ve got nothing to loose. to hear more.
    Thanks for reading!

  8. nuppu85 on June 29, 2011 at 5:13 am

    oh, Chester.. I don’t believe in God but I sure believe in Chester ❀
    and I would like to quote SHOWMIHOMI since I totally agree about this !! "ON JUNE 28, 2011 AT 8:25 PM
    oh my god, what a voice!! Chester is the best singer in the world. he can sing anything. what divine intervention put you those two extremely talented guys together, i don’t know, but aren’t we lucky. thank you so much for sharing. please never stop doing what you do."

  10. zimminator90 on June 28, 2011 at 4:12 pm

    dude, u guys should make an album cover of songs, and include this one! πŸ™‚ think about it!!!

  11. susi88 on June 28, 2011 at 10:39 am

    That’s awesome! And shows one time another, that you guys are REAL artists…

  12. ts4u on June 28, 2011 at 12:46 am

    this is great……..pls open this up.we are too poor.

  13. lapkoola on June 27, 2011 at 9:58 am

    It gave me goosebumps, thanks guys.
    Hugs =)

  14. planetmikeshinoda on June 25, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    Unfortunately, wasn’t abble to attend this summit, but saw the videos. You’re so spontaneous, kind, accessible… :).Nice to see you care. Great Adele’s cover btwn, nice singing Chaz!. Do i sound like an “uncultivated” if I tell you i never heard about this song before? In fact i didn’t know who Adele was either! I just discovered her on youtube!.SHe has such a great voice.

  15. danyh85 on June 25, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Love it and would love to hear more like this

  16. linkin3lla on June 24, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    I’m so glad you guys made this cover! It is certainly one of the greatest songs of the year. Even if other people don’t like it the LP fans love it! So much that I would even buy this cover.

  17. nancywuttke on June 24, 2011 at 4:08 pm

    MIKE, you are really really friendly and have always laughed, great!!!

    One of my best days, once they have nice experience so close! shame that our tour of the day, did not take place and was granted only a glance to the stage!!!

    THanks and we see you in Germany!!!!

  18. stellaslayer on June 24, 2011 at 11:11 am

    such an amazind voice^^:D:)

  19. amandapaddie on June 24, 2011 at 10:09 am

    That was a nice video and a good song. I couldn’t hear the guitar very well, but Chester done a great job singing.

  20. aline4lp on June 24, 2011 at 7:14 am

    The summit was very awesome!!! The way Chester sang really touched me…
    At the M&G I was soooo excited that I forgot all I wanted to say πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for giving us the chance to meet you on such a personal level, we don’t take that for granted….Thank you very much :):):)

  21. jelly211 on June 23, 2011 at 7:04 pm

    Unrelated: You should do a post where you feature artists that are your fans : D like me!

  22. shan1105 on June 23, 2011 at 6:14 pm

    Make this available for download please!!!!

  23. designerlu on June 23, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    That was so amazing. You guys are just so talented I felt that song down to my soul!!! Thank you for sharing.

  24. janine1978 on June 23, 2011 at 12:01 pm

    Awesome. I love the wonderful voice of Chaz. Mike, I thank you very much, the photo that you’ve done with me, although I’m at the M & G fell easily to you. Too bad it has become with the many flags anything we had before this you pass as a “LPUX-fans-remembrance-bunting”. Unfortunately there was no time and the German Security has the flags after the concert thrown into the audience. We were very disappointed, because we have messages written on it for you. Nevertheless, many thanks for a great time with you. I apologize for my bad English. LG Janine. LP ROCKS

  25. mikeecem on June 23, 2011 at 9:54 am

    heyy Mike! i can’t heard your guitar very well. I must say this: Chester sings really awesome. i want to listen your live music in my country. Add Turkey your tour now or come next summer. Turkey wants Linkin Park. so i watched your a video( ) maybe you invite backstage πŸ˜€ LOL. Thank you for amazing Subbits for fans. when i see your videos, activity, new ideas, your arts, your pics. Thanks for all, you ‘re a really sunshine.

  26. Shinoda's Army on June 23, 2011 at 5:39 am

    Beautiful voice

  27. lpsam on June 23, 2011 at 4:13 am

    DAMMIT! It was so beautiful that I even interrupted my recordings… πŸ™‚ thank you guys for being here =)

    it was so much fun, and tell Rob that he is he nicest guy I’ve ever met… The question from him about playing drums was just cool – THX

  28. lpwretchesandkings on June 23, 2011 at 2:57 am

    It’s awesome, I think I’ve to become LPU πŸ˜€

  29. lpfan2004 on June 23, 2011 at 1:34 am

    AMAZING @-@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. anquala on June 23, 2011 at 12:55 am

    Hi, Mike. Welcome to Russia. Is the Russian fans have waited for that day. I’m sorry I can not attend the concert (as always …) due to lack of opportunities to come from out of town and would love to. I hope those who could not get to the concert will see the broadcast. It would be nice. Have a good day to you guys.:)

  31. dcl1982 on June 23, 2011 at 12:21 am

    I saw this video yesterday on facebook. My comment was that Chester should do a solo album chalk-full of cover songs. He’s one of the best ever! What I also thought was pretty cool, (not for you, though) was that it was difficult to hear your guitar, so it sounded like Chester was singing a capella. What was your reaction the first time you heard him sing this?

  32. jdennis88 on June 22, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    That was awesome. There’s a lot of covers of this song out there, and this is the best so far. Without doubt.

  33. lpmaria on June 22, 2011 at 10:58 pm

    Welcome to Russia!=)))

  34. notunafraid on June 22, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    I’ve heard a LOT of covers of this song, and none matched the vocal power of Adele, but Chester is the only one I’ve seen that surpasses her. I don’t know why I was surprised at that, I almost forgot how versatile and just plain strong Chester’s voice is. This is AWESOMENESS. I hope to see more covers from you guys in the future. πŸ˜€

  35. arumiko on June 22, 2011 at 9:52 pm

    awesome!!! I was thinking of joining LPU but times are tough and I don’t think my kids would appreciate me spending their college tuition! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing this with those of us who are unable to meet you in person and “hang”…You guys Rock!!!!! (literally)

  36. caselimor on June 22, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I loved this cover! This vid reminded me how much I love Chester’s voice. Good job guys. πŸ˜€

    I went and listened to the original song after hearing this cover, and it wasn’t what I was expecting at all (but in a good way).

    It’s always good to hear an awesome cover of an awesome song. πŸ˜€

  37. boger7lp on June 22, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    LINKIN POP lol

    I do not like this kind of music
    but good song lol

  38. shinodatwin on June 22, 2011 at 8:05 pm

    This was really amazing! I loved this!
    Hope all is well, take care.

  39. lpuniverse on June 22, 2011 at 7:25 pm

    So much better than the original πŸ™‚

  40. vickykun on June 22, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    Own;.; How Sweet;.; ChesterΒ΄s voice is lovely as usual

    I knew you liked Adele *-*

  41. handsheeldhigh on June 22, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    I would have loved to been there 😦 but I were at hessentag in oberursel/germany last sunday. thank you so much for the show guys, you kicked asses. Hope that I’ll get the chance to meet you someday 😦

  42. ellzworth on June 22, 2011 at 2:43 pm

    Reminds me of when Gnarls Barkley released “Crazy”
    Every body an their mother covered it.
    I gotta say. This cover actually makes me like the song. Well done πŸ™‚

  43. rockrjen on June 22, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    I soooo need this on my iPod now!!!

  44. kathyaralp on June 22, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    I saw another video of you singing the messenger, the number of people, wow!! wanted to be one of those people: (

  45. kathyaralp on June 22, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    The video was great, and the voice of chester’re perfect *–* β™₯ …
    the result was beautiful!

  46. relieff on June 22, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    why dont you have a better sound quality, this dude is filming in front of chester, why haven’t you got better video quality!
    I just love john’s cover on soundcloud, wish your was proffesionally recorded! πŸ˜€

  53. Radyo Plexus on June 22, 2011 at 10:57 am


  54. tinnituss on June 22, 2011 at 10:24 am

    I have a little question Mike… Whenever Chester or the others in the band are playing and you sit/stand silently at the side, do you ever look out at the crowd and get lost in thoughts? What crosses your mind when you stand up there on stage?
    love from Sweden xxx

  55. devioustrouble on June 22, 2011 at 10:14 am

    You guys should do a cover album. Just… damn. Such talent. This is right here, THIS is why you guys are my favorite band.

  56. adiek84 on June 22, 2011 at 9:58 am

    This is an awesome performance! I love Adele and Chester sings his heart out during this song. Major props to him!

    @Flozuki The “girl in the wheelchair” or Lpfan1989, which is her username online, wrote a review about the summit and the concert for my blog. You can find it here:
    She also wrote a review of the show in Leipzig, which you can read on my blog, too.

    Mike, you made her very happy and I think it’s great that you’re so thoughtful and generous to invite her with parents, friend and all to the show. She was really uncomfortable and unhappy about having to go home after the summit. Good deed done! πŸ˜‰

  57. linkinparkette on June 22, 2011 at 9:51 am

    mikeshinodahey from lpu told me about a song u guys covered but i didnt know it by name. but yea i know that song and u guys did a great cover :3

  58. jelly211 on June 22, 2011 at 9:34 am

    You guys should do a cover album.

  59. millalp94 on June 22, 2011 at 9:07 am

    THANK YOU FOR THIS AWESOME DAY MIKE !!!! I still can’t believe that I shaked your hand, and this over 10 seconds^^ lol. I was soo nervous and excited !!! The SUMMIT was amazing !!! I will never forget this day !! you and the other guys are soo awesome, funny, sweet and nice !!! love you !:D and the concert was amazing !!!*-* and we love you too !:D haha ❀

  60. tbone9 on June 22, 2011 at 9:03 am

    Hey Mike. Haha, that was AWESOME! Not what I was expecting from two rock stars, but that surprise added to how amazing that was πŸ™‚ I was reading the other comments and I concur, you should sing for us sometime!

  61. cincybmxlpfreak on June 22, 2011 at 9:01 am

    Thank you for posting this. Again…BRAAAAVO!!! This is amazing!!! I wish I had been there in person to see this take place. Wow. I can’t get over it. Bravo. πŸ˜€

  62. rockrjen on June 22, 2011 at 8:47 am

    This is amazing…..I have goose bumps!! Chester can sing anything, you boys are so talented.

  63. nutritionelles on June 22, 2011 at 8:34 am

    Now are those yellow shoes amazing or amazing? and great cover too (:

  64. silentchaos11 on June 22, 2011 at 8:03 am

    This is what I miss most about the Linkin Park in it’s early years, the covers and surprise songs at concerts/events. “Qwerty” premiered at the Tokyo concert, and the “Umbrella” cover took place in London. I’m glad to see you guys doing these surprises again, maybe someday you will do this at concert I’m at :]

  65. regiw on June 22, 2011 at 6:59 am

    Sorry if I’m abusing this post, but 24 hours ago I was seing it happen in front of me and my head & heart are full of impressions. To hear Chester singing and to have Mike playing the acustic guitar so close was the most beautiful moment for me – maybe just second to changing a few words with each of the guys.

    You hear their voices and you see their faces all the time on your computer screen, so being face to face feels so familiar in a very, very strang way.

    I even got the chance to ask Mike a question. And you know what? ‘I don’t even know what kind of things I said – my mounth kept moving and my mind went dead…’ literally.

    A LPU summit it’s an unique experience!

  66. riachen on June 22, 2011 at 6:50 am

    Wow, amazing guys. What an awesome voice chester and what a wonderful guitar player mike^^. It is a shame that i could not have been there…

  67. tinnituss on June 22, 2011 at 6:35 am

    People kinda suck at clapping their hands..XD

  68. chesterloverlp on June 22, 2011 at 6:28 am

    Awesome, you guys are perfect! I love you β™₯

  69. leila_lp on June 22, 2011 at 6:13 am

    I wasn’t on the sammit 😦 But I see how beautiful it was! Thank you guys for this cover! It amazing! I never tire of making sure that Chester can sing everything!

  70. Alexandra Nofi on June 22, 2011 at 5:44 am

    ZOMG it’s almost the 2008 fake mohawk! I loved that thing! *hairstyle nostalgia* Wait, what? You cut your hair??? *fangirl anger* LOL, you know I don’t really care about your hair, dude.

    Classic Bennoda stare @3:30!!! XD

    Epic cover, Chester’s high notes are great. He really owned that song!

  71. lorenalp on June 22, 2011 at 5:23 am

    OMG! it sounds great!

  72. sajinokami on June 22, 2011 at 5:05 am

    Officially the 4th time I have heard an artist I like, cover this. You all have done a wonderful job, each person giving it a different vibe. Adele’s was not even the first version I heard before, it was Haley Reinhart of American Idol who got me into this song. now i am rambling, great cover mike, chester too of coarse.

  73. Limpapo on June 22, 2011 at 5:03 am

    This band is special! Just great!

  74. nettie21 on June 22, 2011 at 4:59 am

    Chester’s voice is really amazing, but it always was… πŸ˜€ And yes, You should sing for us once, Mike! It would be sooo great… πŸ™‚

  75. Rana LP addict on June 22, 2011 at 4:31 am

    OH GOD!!! I liked it πŸ˜€

  76. Xenith on June 22, 2011 at 4:15 am

    That was fantastic πŸ™‚

  77. yydisco0913 on June 22, 2011 at 4:13 am

    Chester’s voice is sooo charming. We’re looking forward to hearing you to sing for us, Mike.

  78. kelly jean on June 22, 2011 at 4:10 am

    Hey Mike can you possibly let Chester know he’s not one of the best singers of our time? But THE best? Thank you πŸ™‚

  79. tinalein76 on June 22, 2011 at 4:09 am

    Hello Mike πŸ™‚ It was a fantastic day with you and the other guys πŸ™‚ Thank you for the perfect day πŸ™‚ I hope I see you soon in Hamburg/Germany again :)Thanks Tina

  80. junfender78 on June 22, 2011 at 3:54 am

    wow…grat cover!! I like it!

  81. jazchas96 on June 22, 2011 at 3:50 am

    this cover is awesome, mike you should have sang too :3

  82. flozuki on June 22, 2011 at 3:49 am

    Good to see that a lot of LP Fans like it, i tried my best not to sing while filming.^^
    By the way, Mike is probably one of the most big-hearted persons i have ever met. I donΒ΄t know the girl from yesterday (dressing-room-tour), but you just made her so happy with your gift =)

    And props to the band, it was just an awesome event and i hope that as much people as possible can participate.

  83. missmeteora20 on June 22, 2011 at 3:46 am

    I’ve ever said I love chester’s voice and now I love it even more if it’s possible :D… when I’ve heard that song I was like:”oh my god… that is just… wow!” My mouth was open until the end of this video.
    thumbs up for the cover πŸ™‚

  84. Julian on June 22, 2011 at 3:44 am

    You guys must record a studio version, it’s even better than the original!

  85. Orion on June 22, 2011 at 3:42 am

    Good one… But I’ll never have a chance to go any summits, sadly. Is there a specific reason for playing this song? Is it because you specially love this song so much?

  86. evooba on June 22, 2011 at 3:40 am

    A lot of my friends were there yesterday and they had the time of their lives! Thx for that. And the cover of Adele’s song was amazing. πŸ˜€ Btw, did you take a look at the book you “stole” from a girl named Anna? You know, the one with drawings and letters inside that said on the cover “Hamburg Summit fan Book”?

  87. iridescent2202 on June 22, 2011 at 3:40 am

    Chester sings it better! πŸ™‚
    Can’t wait to see you guys at Werchter next week!
