LISTEN: Linkin Park's Demo Version of 'In The End' Is Different...And Pretty Damn Cool.


Gotta hand it to the dudes in Linkin Park. It can’t be easy celebrating the 20th anniversary of your debut album during a pandemic, never mind just a few years removed from losing one of the biggest parts of that album, in former lead singer Chester Bennington. But, they’ve done their best, including releasing some cool audio from the vault. The latest? The alternate/demo version of ‘In The End’.

Cool, right? Back in August, they also gave us an unreleased take from Hybrid Theory, called ‘She Couldn’t’. 

It’s all a part of a massive boxset that the band’s put together for their fans, to celebrate twenty years of one of the biggest rock albums ever.
