@LinkinPark Cover Adele Rolling In The Deep: iTunes Festival / Roundhouse

July 4, 2011

We did this cover for the LPU Summit a couple weeks ago, and some of you folks seemed to really like it.  So Chester and I worked up a piano version for the special show tonight in London.

Make sure to check out the whole show HERE

    Some of us liked it. SOME of us liked it, he says. HAH.

    You two are masters at what you do. Don’t ever doubt that.

  5. thegluelpfan on July 14, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    I actually like it better than the original :D Seriously…amazing haunting cover…only you guys can pull that off

  6. riachen on July 11, 2011 at 11:28 am

    Oh I love it sooo much. What an amazing cover. You guys should do more of this stuff. It is really good. Chesters voice is so awesome….I could listen to that the whole day. :-)

  7. MusicalMorphine on July 8, 2011 at 4:59 am

    I’m finally getting around to watching the itunes vids. Gotta say, every time I stop listening to you guys for a while I see a show or performance and it brings it back like “okay, this is still my band” lol. Wish I coulda been there.

    And some of the new songs have definitely grown on me!

  8. relieff on July 7, 2011 at 7:52 am

    now that’s better quality, i love it, wish you invited me to london :P

  9. didilp on July 7, 2011 at 7:07 am

    I love this version with the piano. I saw it at the “LPU summit” and it was really great, Chester sings this song really well! It reminded me of good memories, it was perfect. Thank you so much for this big surprise!!

  10. lpmaria on July 6, 2011 at 11:51 pm

    The scars of your love remind me of us
    They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
    The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
    I can’t help feeling
    We could have had it all ……

  11. zimminator90 on July 6, 2011 at 7:58 pm

  12. everyoneissleeping on July 6, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    I don’t care for the original version at all, but I *LOVE* yours. Amazing performance by all of you, guys, but vocals were particularly impressive. Congratulations Chester & Mike.

  13. tbone9 on July 6, 2011 at 4:25 pm

    You guys are amazing! I loved the video from the Summit, but this one was even more impressive :) You guys always keep us fans guessing and you do a great job at it. Keep up the phenomenal work!

  14. emzlp123 on July 6, 2011 at 1:41 pm

  23. aline4lp on July 6, 2011 at 4:06 am

    I love this cover… if there is someone who has a even better voice than Adele it’s CHESTER!!! I was at the Summit when you played it for the first time and it blew me away…seriously, it’s awesome!!!

  24. relxde on July 6, 2011 at 3:49 am

    @THEGRANDKAIDBZ Posting Limp Bizkit Videos at mikeshinoda.com? What is wrong with you? LB sucks donkey balls.

  25. abalzan88 on July 6, 2011 at 12:50 am

    I don’t usually like this song, it gets on my nerves but that was just AMAZING!!!! I could listen to that version all day, thanks for posting it : )

  26. jdennis88 on July 5, 2011 at 11:52 pm

    Great song, and love the way you guys did it. Awesome stuff

  27. arumiko on July 5, 2011 at 7:35 pm

    Yay!!!! The video is up “on demand” now!!!! My own “private” concert…:) LOVE seeing you guys up there really enjoying yourselves! You are awesome! Keep it coming!

  28. brunarj on July 5, 2011 at 4:57 pm

    WOW Mike!! tell Chester that i love it on his voice, you two are so awesome!!!

  29. nikilovelp on July 5, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Oh my god!!! You are really great!!
    Love you***

  30. lode1989 on July 5, 2011 at 11:23 am

    Better then the original! Amazing! Chester can even sing this ‘live’ better then the linkin park tracks(Still think LP songs are the best songs of the world.)if you ask me but still… Nothing beats the ‘Nine Inc Nails’ Cover with the song called ‘Wish’ !!

  31. Claudia B. on July 5, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Chester owned Adele, dare I say it. And you played piano amazingly *___* Adele is probably proud and jealous of how you presented it. And the piano version of it. Perfect.

    You were right. That’s not a huge surprise, I was kind of expecting that because lots of people loved the last time you covered this song at the Hamburg Summit.

  32. linkinparkforever275 on July 5, 2011 at 10:46 am

    chester totally nailed it! Better than the original!
    Btw Mike, the piano fits perfect!!

    Great job!

  33. mrslp on July 5, 2011 at 10:15 am

    Chester has very beautifull voice!!!! Love it!!!

    I seemed or he shed tears ???????????

  34. fearfreak on July 5, 2011 at 9:39 am

    oh this was the short version
    this is better
    sry

  35. fearfreak on July 5, 2011 at 9:34 am

    show yesterday was amazing and the cover too
    but this is still my favorite cover from you

  36. dsdaaa on July 5, 2011 at 9:33 am

    I recently started to sing the LP songs like you did in the last line of The Catalyst (changuin the melody)in that show =0 I was like: s**t, Mike just read my mind !

  37. sweetsixteen79 on July 5, 2011 at 9:08 am

    EXCELLENT show !!! Thanks Linkin Park

  38. melov on July 5, 2011 at 9:02 am

    I was speechless when I heard it yesterday!!! No words can describe how F**ken amazing it was!!!

  39. thegrandkaidbz on July 5, 2011 at 8:56 am

    Yeah!!!

  40. showmihomi on July 5, 2011 at 7:51 am

    i’m rolling in a deep coma, because I just stopped breathing. there are no words. thank you sooooo much.

  41. erimarika on July 5, 2011 at 6:39 am

    I literally LOVED your performance. Wish I were there at the venue..
    Hope you have a nice summer break!

  42. irenemgan on July 5, 2011 at 6:29 am

    woow perfecto!Grandissima voz!

  43. Diana Aizad on July 5, 2011 at 6:08 am

    Ooh i like it soooo much!

  44. 7kirara7 on July 5, 2011 at 5:44 am

    Wow. Honestly, that was much better than the original version!
    Chesters voice gives this song a soul. And the sound of the piano to it was so beautiful…
    That reminded me why I started to learn to play the piano. :’)

    That brings me to a question:

    I know, you’re able to play the piano very well, and guitar too. Don’t know if you play anything else, but anyway, what’s your favourite instrument? :D

  45. jbevans2011 on July 5, 2011 at 5:41 am

    I cannot even begin to describe how absolutely mind blowing Chester’s performance of this song was last night, thank you for making it a truly special gig !!!!

  46. leila_lp on July 5, 2011 at 5:37 am

    This is so beautiful!! Thank you so much!!!
    Mike, if it’s possible, make a studio version of the cover please! I know, it will hard because of copyrights…but it would awesome! Love you guys!!

  47. nuppu85 on July 5, 2011 at 5:07 am

    This was more than AMAZING !! I cried like a baby when Chester started, and I just couldn’t watch it right away! I was crying so hard :’) I had to just listen it, but today I’ve watched it about 30 times now, LOVE IT <33 Chester is just truly amazing… No words are enough to describe him, awesome job Mike & Chester. Thank you guys so very much for this, THIS is something REALLY special and unforgettable, THANK YOU !! <3

  48. planetshadows on July 5, 2011 at 4:48 am

    As always everything is perfect )))))))!

  49. daniromanian on July 5, 2011 at 3:40 am

    great voice chester!

  50. theamante on July 5, 2011 at 3:25 am

    The show was amazing Mike !! I hope to watch it again =)

  51. lapkoola on July 5, 2011 at 3:24 am

    Couldn’t watch you guys in Poland so hearing this now just takes my breath away.
    Brilliant Mike, your creativity has no limits!
    I had goose bumps. Again. And I want more!
    Hugs =)

  52. cherrybubble89 on July 5, 2011 at 3:09 am

    *God

  53. cherrybubble89 on July 5, 2011 at 3:08 am

    I really love the emotions you both put into this song!

    PS: My fave part was at about 3:25 :)

    Go, how I love Linkin Park… best musicians in the whole wide big massive world/ universe x)

  54. Ashikin on July 5, 2011 at 2:33 am

    simply give me goosebumps!

    so kind to put it here, thanks Bro ^_^

  55. mercenary18 on July 5, 2011 at 2:31 am

    Really REALLY love this!!! Never heard this song til the summit & today, so I can’t say legitly say his is better but I don’t care haha U can’t beat Chester…I LOVE ur guy’s cover of this song!! Ur piano playing is beautiful! Thanks for not spoiling the surprise =) it was worth it <3

  56. kerstinde on July 5, 2011 at 1:55 am

    Oh I’ve to say that I liked Adeles song everytime and I HATE cover versions of great acts. But I’ve to avow that you’ve done a great job. The dramatic voice of Mr. C.B. gives the lyrics a sleeve without suppressing them. This is a genuine skill controlled only by a few of artists, so I believe. I’m overwhelmed more than ever. And finished I’ve to say that I LOVE this great cover version! Respektful I’m bowing to you, men :D

  57. Shinoda's Army on July 5, 2011 at 1:55 am

    just beautiful

  58. Shinoda's Army on July 5, 2011 at 1:55 am

    jus beautiful

  59. iridescent2202 on July 5, 2011 at 1:44 am

    Mike, it was a great performance (like always!). You probably do every single song from another artist better than themselves… that’s just Linkin Park! Chester has the greatest voice!
    An

  60. linkinparktjejen on July 5, 2011 at 1:14 am

    Your cover of “Rolling In The Deep” was pure love. So damn amazing that I started to cry my eyes out.

    This is just perfect, YOU guys kicked some ass yesterday! It was awesome!

  61. nutritionelles on July 5, 2011 at 1:00 am

    this is perfect! Chester sings so beautifully…. thanks guys <3

  62. Parker on July 5, 2011 at 12:30 am

    I’ve heard you said on LPU chat that the surprise is not that big as we were guessing.
    It was true because it was HUGE not big. You killed it. It was just awesome.

  63. Arien on July 5, 2011 at 12:24 am

    I was there, in the front row, yelling like a teenager! First time I actually managed to see you guys in concert (I live in a decent country now :P).

    The concert was superb and this cover so amazing. Thank you guys for such a wonderful night!

  64. anothermikesfan on July 5, 2011 at 12:16 am

    Oh and if you guys got issues to watch the show on i-tunes, you can watch some videos from the festival on Mike Shinoda Clan’s main page http://mikeshinodaclan.com/ :)

  65. bahar67 on July 4, 2011 at 11:56 pm

    once again, its great! bravo!

  66. nettie21 on July 4, 2011 at 11:46 pm

    You are the best musicians, guys! It was like… ok, I don’t know a good word to describe my feelings inside… It was great.
    Thank you very much! :)
    N.

  67. anothermikesfan on July 4, 2011 at 11:33 pm

    Seems you guys like this song too! ;) Great cover by the way, great show. Thanks you guys for this amazing tour. Happy vacations now, you all deserve it.

  68. pidgeon84 on July 4, 2011 at 11:25 pm

    I had this song stuck in my head all day, was the soundtrack to the fireworks lol

  69. spraypaintninkpens on July 4, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    lolwut? Where’s the LP that plays rock music?

  70. susi88 on July 4, 2011 at 11:09 pm

    Absolutely fantastic!!
    Gives me chills!

  71. galva94 on July 4, 2011 at 10:55 pm

    You are fantastic, like ever! I wanted to cry when you and the others when you get off the public to shake hands T_T Why you didnt do that in Italy?

    your big fan, Pietro Galvagni

  72. dcl1982 on July 4, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Amazing once again! Adele was on the radio yesterday, and I listened to compare the two versions. Chester’s rendition, hands down, is my favorite! This is WAYYYY better than that Rihanna stunt you pulled during the MTM tour, even though you were just being goofy, (and undeniably adorable!) with Umbrella!

  73. tinalein76 on July 4, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Hey Mike :)
    The Show was great yesterday..
    The song always reminds me of the Summit that was so perfect:)
    Thanks for the great concerts in Germany, I hope we’ll see you again next year. Chester’s voice to the song simply brilliant :)
    Best wishes from Germany :) Tina

  74. 筱田の友 on July 4, 2011 at 10:48 pm

    AWWW i was like “omg… they’re gonna come up with something super epic again!” and there they go. Always love chester’s voice and mike’s piano. they ftw!

  75. jdub023 on July 4, 2011 at 10:18 pm

    Mike/LP-

    Once again I didn’t waist my time as I tuned in to the iTunes Festival app. You guys rocked London and the show was phenomenal as usual.

    THANK YOU LP! Happy 4th of July!

  76. imshong on July 4, 2011 at 10:10 pm

    Beautiful vioce!!!!!!!11I like Chester’s version!!!!!!!!!!

  77. camila on July 4, 2011 at 10:09 pm

    Maldicion Mike!!! se me paran los pelos con este cover. Felicidades y gracias por ser tremendos artistas. No se mueran nuncaaaaaa hahjaj. saludos

  78. arumiko on July 4, 2011 at 9:58 pm

    You know what’s kind of ironic? You guys celebrating the 4th of July in the country from which we (the U.S.)celebrate our independence… Good to know that all is well between our countries now! ;)BTW, I wasn’t able to catch the live stream and checked itunes but your show isn’t up to view “on demand” like some of the others…hoping it’s up soon.

  79. hillomunkki on July 4, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    This is amazing. Chester’s voice is pure love :)

  80. onlylp on July 4, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    amazing show in london -i watched the whole live streaming of the show – and you`ve touched my soul with this great cover version of “rolling in the deep”- i love it . Hope to see you again in Germany very soon . Thanks for all and keep up the good work .

  81. evooba on July 4, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    It was an amazing show! I wasn’t there but I watched online through iTunes. It felt like I was there though and I gotta say that you guys nailed it! So much power and passion! You were awesome! The crowd too! As for the cover, great performance; Adele will be jealous of you now ’cause you guys performed it better ;)

  82. rookieonen on July 4, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    You guys do really surprise me with these whole things; great acoustics, great covers, and great visit (soon) to my country (Indonesia).
    I, honestly, really in love with this of cover of Rolling In The Deep.
    Wish to see it in your show later :). Is it possible, Mike?

  83. tastysnaxx on July 4, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    Is there going to be an audio download for it?

  84. Braffschein on July 4, 2011 at 8:38 pm

    I bet Adele won’t be even close to your performance of their song. They have a strong competitor now :D

  85. sshirlz on July 4, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    WOW this takes my breath away (applause)!! Long live LP!

  86. lpglennlp on July 4, 2011 at 8:07 pm

    Wow Mike that is amazing. But i was wondering if you could tell us wat the outcome of the fan survey last week??? i took it and am curious to know your reaction to the results :) thanks man

  87. marcospaulocampos on July 4, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Chester voice, just AMAZING!!!!
    Thanks for that, Chaz!!!

    And Mike, i think that you should try some cover too, what do u thing about it?

    THANKS LP!!!
    Cya

  88. jhanh13 on July 4, 2011 at 7:52 pm

  89. jershalp on July 4, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    da itunes in India didnt broadcast it. :-(
    but i heard da piano version n it is just awesome.
    u guys know to give a surprise !!
    (m sure Adele is thinking to take singing lessons from Chaz :P)

  90. kaoripo on July 4, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    I watched the whole live streaming of the show on iTunes, and the song was so surprising & amazing! Looking forward to seeing you guys in Makuhari :-)

  91. Julian on July 4, 2011 at 7:10 pm

    2 words: STUDIO VERSION!!!

  92. caselimor on July 4, 2011 at 6:58 pm

    I was watching some of the live stream of the show on iTunes (I couldn’t watch all of it), and I can’t believe I missed this! Awesome cover, as usual, and hearing the crowd sing along just made it seem that much more special.

  93. Nina Nine on July 4, 2011 at 6:38 pm

    I love this song, the first time that I heard it was on the Linkin Park Radio.
    When I’d heard it the LPU summit, I loved it more. And this version with the piano it’s still better.
    Someday will you stop to surprise me? I hope don’t!
    ..keep doing it right, as you do!..

  94. devioustrouble on July 4, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    Just… words cannot discribe how killer awesome this is. Somehow you need to release this cover!

  95. anniemendess on July 4, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    I loved i am great and the chester ta beautiful as always!

  96. sajinokami on July 4, 2011 at 6:05 pm

    Amazing.. there be soul here.

  97. guuuro on July 4, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    Hahaha, I know this is out of topic… But first, you write about Jørgen Lande. He’s a guy from my home city. We have 6 mutual friends (on Facebook, lol)… And now it is this video, that is uploaded by a boy that went to my junior high! x) The world is a small, small place x)

  98. burningjavhy on July 4, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    EXCELLENT THEME MIKE
    PERFECT…
    AMAIZING VOICE OF CHESTER!!<3

  99. minguadeviver on July 4, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    Amazing! I have no word to describe.
    Besides, we found an extended version of Rolling in the Deep: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAv36S2LWxw&feature=share

  100. joannehelix on July 4, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    I think you guys should add “Rolling in the deep” to your setlist for real now! whenever you guys perform live! :)

  101. joannehelix on July 4, 2011 at 5:37 pm

    I love this cover so much! glad that you guys sang it again!

    Love you Mike!

  102. Shay Adams on July 4, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    Amazing. Sounds awesome. It really does.

  103. drichester on July 4, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    It was perfect in Chaz’s voice, piano and you rocked! Congratulations to music is very beautiful!

  104. mizerablesi on July 4, 2011 at 5:27 pm

    WOW i got freakin goose bumps from listening to that…that was such a great cover…you guys are the most talented and creative band out there…standing ovation from me…LOVE YOU GUYS <3

  105. guuuro on July 4, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    It’s amazing!
    This was my third concert within 3 weeks. Sort of! :) After a concert with a big, squeeze crowd in Norway, it was good to stay in my bed and just enjoy the concert ;)

  106. kathyxx on July 4, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    This is simply awesome.

  107. betty108 on July 4, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Better than the cover in the Summit, IMO.. What are the chances of you guys making a studio version of this song? Maybe putting it in the next LPU CD? :D A girl can dream…

  108. Alexandra Nofi on July 4, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    Something about your piano playing with Chester’s voice leads to a lot of chemistry.

    This song really suits his voice, he brings a nice sort of southern rock flavor to it.

  109. Jason R. on July 4, 2011 at 5:21 pm

    Awesome job! Do you know if there are plans to sell a recording of the cover on iTunes?

  110. amandadgm on July 4, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    I would like to see but it seems that the Brazilian fans cann’t watch. :(

  111. Ally on July 4, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    Loved it.

    @Howsah pfffttttttt ~cries~ >_. meanie!

  112. thepixelpod on July 4, 2011 at 5:17 pm

    this is better than the original one ;)

  113. Michael Gonzalez on July 4, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    Freaking awesome! I’m just having trouble watching the whole concert :/

  114. howsah on July 4, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    I was there tonight, came all the way from NY! Thanks for the amazing show, as always, Mike!

  115. argol8489 on July 4, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    It was a very big surprise … applause.

  116. aishalp on July 4, 2011 at 5:13 pm
