    The cool thing is… the first album I searched up was The Rising Tied…

  2. janakjoshi1 on August 22, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    Mr. Shinoda, just wanted to say thanks for giving out these Spotify invites. πŸ™‚ Rock on.

    Thanks for the Spotify invite Mike! I’m sooo loving it!!!

    Hey cool. It finally came to US! πŸ™‚ I`ve had it for a year now. I don`t know if you read this Mike, but too me it`s so funny. You made a list on spotify, that only I subscribed. but the list is unpublished now. So yeah if you see that one subscriber, you know it`s me, haha. keep on the good work, love from Norway!

    Hopefully someday it will be available here too someday…anyways it’s really nice of you to do that πŸ™‚

    Man I listened to your playlist “Stuff I grew up on” and the least I can say is that IT ROCKSSSS!!! I guess the funny part is that I grew up with some of this stuff too and yet I am like 10 years younger than you (guess I was born with a great musical taste, and since I am listening to LP from 2000 up to now, that makes my point :D) Quick question, out of curiosity: I noticed that your playlist includes FUGEES but no tracks from lauryn hill’s albums, why? What do you think about DOO WOP (Which kikes some serious ass, in my opinion of course)?
    PS: please keep sharing your musical classics &/or discoveries as much as you can πŸ˜‰

    Hi, Mike. Only the U.S.? And what about Russia? How did Spain, Italy and other countries? I am disappointed … but still, thank you, Mike, for the information. Have a nice day

  13. Shinoda's Army on July 19, 2011 at 1:51 am

  14. dovingbird on July 18, 2011 at 9:20 pm

    You are a beautiful human being for sharing this.

  15. starcr8zy on July 18, 2011 at 5:34 pm

    Thanks so much Mike! My friend in London has been talking about this for ages and now I finally get to try it :}

  16. indienile on July 18, 2011 at 5:27 pm

  17. andybiar on July 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    Thanks Mike!

    -Another satisfied fan

  18. becrewrox on July 18, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Hey Mike! I created the β€œiridescent” artwork protest against the winner who cheated. You’re also an artist so I assume you wouldn’t like to be treated the way we were. We love you but we feel disgusted. http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=568665891#!/event.php?eid=236422866376183

  19. alyeska39 on July 18, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Aaaand I’m hooked. Nice. Thanks for the invites. πŸ™‚

  20. rockermeg on July 18, 2011 at 9:14 am

    I can’t believe it took so long to get it to the US…
    Now can the UK have Pandora please?

  21. babygirlshinoda on July 18, 2011 at 2:36 am

    Ahhh, I just miss your darn invite. I was busy this weekend… Well, maybe another time πŸ™‚

  22. estebanlareaux on July 18, 2011 at 1:13 am

    Thanks a lot for this. I really appreciate it.

  23. segumisama on July 17, 2011 at 8:28 pm

    Ah lame. I didn’t get here in time for an invite. 😦 sad! I guess i’ll just have to wait like everyone else who was slow… πŸ˜€

  24. hazel1972 on July 17, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Lovin your touch on Depeche Modes ‘enjoy the silence’ and I have your tune My December playing on there a lot at the moment, is an amazing ballad πŸ™‚

  25. hazel1972 on July 17, 2011 at 1:13 pm

    I don’t understand the invite thing, i have spotify here in the UK and can access your page Mike no problem or is there hidden extras for invites in the US?

  26. nlopezdearenosa on July 17, 2011 at 1:11 pm

    THANK YOU MIKE! It’s awesome! I get to listen to MCR’s Danger Days til it drops from $15! πŸ˜€

  32. uacademy95 on July 17, 2011 at 4:02 am

  47. devioustrouble on July 16, 2011 at 5:46 pm

    Thanks Mike!

  48. guuuro on July 16, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    My first playlist on Spotify was Minutes to midnight. Don’t know why, cause I wasn’t a fan when I made the playlist 2 years ago. I liked only a few songs, I barely listened to “Given up” or “Bleed it out” because they were “too noisy” for me x) I had to listen to all of your songs in October, since I was going at a concert with you later that month. Now I have 4 playlists with LP, been on 3 concerts and 1 M&G within 8 months x)

  49. jershalp on July 16, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    its pretty awesome of you to give invites… but i cant join cuz m in India 😦

  50. betty108 on July 16, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    I barely joined Spotify about two days ago, and I love it. It was tricky to get around it at first, but I managed. I really hope it reduces illegal downloading/piracy. It’s really nice of you to give out some invites, by the way.

  51. schennj on July 16, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    Thanks for the invite Mike, much appreciated! Diggin’ Spotify now.


  52. truebluelp on July 16, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    I was interested to try this after
    I saw the article on you Dave visiting their
    Headquarters. Thanks so much for the invites!

  53. kaynyne on July 16, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    Are the artists making money? If it’s free, how does it get funded, etc and is there artists like Linkin Park, Lady Gaga, etc.

  54. arumiko on July 16, 2011 at 5:09 pm

    Kept your promise! Thanks! πŸ˜‰

  55. soufex on July 16, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    i had spotify back in the uk, but because i am cheap and lazy i can’t use it here in australia. maybe when i get my filthy paws on an iphone, i’ll cough up some dollar for it so i can use it on the move and whatnot.

  56. guuuro on July 16, 2011 at 5:07 pm

    I love Spotify. Have had it for 2 years now! πŸ™‚

  57. kathyxx on July 16, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    It’s pretty cool. I was listening to it yesterday and tried out a bunch of albums I didn’t have.

    Also, finding users on Spotify was tricky. you have to type spotify:user:m_shinoda in the search bar to find Mike. I dont know any other ways yet.

  58. howsah on July 16, 2011 at 5:05 pm

    It’s awesome that you’re doing this, Mike, and awesomer still that Spotify has a special invite page for you, too! I’ve already got a subscription and have checked out your playlists. Good stuff! Some not my taste, but I always love being exposed to artists I’ve never heard before. Thanks!
