In The End is the fourth single from Linkin Park's debut album Hybrid Theory. The track is arguably the most successful Linkin Park single to date and brought the band into the mainstream more than ever before. The track reached a number of chart accolades for the band, most noticeably placing #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, #1 on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream, #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks and #8 in the UK Singles Chart.
The lyrics suggest the song is about the breakdown of trust within a relationship / friendship and the feelings of failure that can come from this. There were a total of 3 official CD singles released of In The End, Part 1, Part 2 and a DVD Digipack that featured the official video in DVD format & 4 interview clips. Part 2 of the single was also the first time "Step Up" was released in CD format outside of the Hybrid Theory EP.
