I finally heard the full town hall of Linkin Park on SiriusXM’s Octane Channel, and as a fan it was quite the treat. Learned a few bits of the band that I didn’t know.
Anyway, in the promo’s they kept playing this part where some dude asked about the piano intro for In The End, and I must admit, it is quite epic. I basically just kept thinking about that intro.
Fast forward to when the LP played In The End during the Town Hall, I think Mike made a comment, that in the past 6 or 7 years, it was the first time Chester was able to sing the bridge.
I remember when Cheesecake and I saw LP at MSG in 2011, the crowd pretty much took over for the band when they played In The End, and I must say, it was quite epic.
LP is hands down my all time favorite band, and although In The End was not the song that made me notice them (Papercut holds that title), In The End remains a timeless classic, and possibly one of the songs that propelled the band into the next level.
Fun fact, Chester didn’t even want In The End to be in Hybrid Theory. He thought it was too soft.
