Your Perfect Linkin Park Mix CD

You have the near-impossible, but worth it, task of encapsulating your years and years of fandom onto an 80-minute-only blank CD!

What do you choose?? What gets eliminated? Does your mix tell a story? Is it all the all-time greats, or all your favorite live tracks? You decide! Make it your love letter to the band’s music. But you only have one CD!


Act 1 (Intro): One Thing

1. Session
2. Keys to the Kingdom
3. In The End (Live from Melbourne, 2010)

Awesome mix btw

A CD-R disc fits up to 80minutes, so around 20 songs, depending on the length

This is a great list.

Let me take some time to really think about this because it’s going to be hard to choose only a few songs when they had so many good ones

Only Linkin Park or we can choice whatever we want?

@rickvanmeijel The record must show your comment was not ignorant at all!.. Truth be told… I sort of cheated at my own game and ever so slightly shortened GATS by cutting out about 40 seconds of some of the more repetitive parts of the intro/outro (seamlessly I might add :sunglasses: ), but I promise the only way you would notice is if you literally memorized every single measure. And even then you can easily think of it as an alternative radio edit cuz their official “Radio Edit” cuts out Rakim and you just cant to that to the God of Rap.

The original draft of the CD didn’t have Faint, and my OCD, love for that song, and initial unintentional shafting of Meteroa forced my hand so… Yeah stuff like that is allowed! :smile:

@IronSoldier16 I confined mysely to Linkin Park only but if there are other artists you want to include, I got no beef with that

In the end
One step closer
With you
Somewhere I belong
Form the inside
Easier to run

Shadow of the day
No more sorrow
Bleed it out
Leave it all the rest
What I 've done

Castle of glass
Burn it down
Until it’s gone
Looking for an awnser

Over. again
One more light
Talking to myself
G uilty all the same

I forgot waiting for the end. :joy:

Lol I’m more of the mp3 person…so all of them on random!!! Fun fact!!! I actually have 6 one for each vehicle


I am a fan of this technique as well, but there’s also something special about creating a fully realized, self-contained, physical, tangible, work that you and only you could have made, based on your collection of albums, demos, remixes, live performances, and whatever else you collect and/or tweaked along the way :slight_smile:

Very very true!! That’s why I still only but original CDs!! I keep two copies just incase. With two teenage daughters, in learned early that my CDs get ruined quickly

Do you remember the “in my car” " dance" “get pump” all the moment specific cd…

Me too. Making playlists is fun, I especially like to set songs that flow seamlessly into one another

Yeah! The transition from Session into KTTK is actually really fun if you chop some of the empty space out of the the very end of S and the very beginning of KTTK it’s just one long awesome sound lol that’s why i started mine with those 2

Mine would be:

  1. Waiting For The End
  2. Sharp Edges
  3. The Messanger
  4. Castle Of Glass
  5. One More Light
  6. Iridescent
  7. Bleed It Out
  8. Somewhere I Belong
  9. Leave Out All The Rest
  10. Battle Sympothy
  11. Talking To Myself

And I’d probably throw on some live versions of the songs, as well.
