    In my opinion, most of Linkin Park's B-Sides are absolutely fantastic. What is your favorite Linkin Park B-Side? Personally mine are a tie between No Roads Left and Qwerty.

    My December. (As far as I know it's a B-Side, but if it's not, then Qwerty)

    Well Qwerty isn't a B-Side, It's a demo. LP's B-Sides are My December, High Voltage, No Roads Left and Blackbirds. Demo =/= B-Side

    Across the Line takes the crown for me. The perfect bridge between the band's nu-metal background and their more alternative style at the time of Minutes To Midnight.

    No Roads Left and Pretend To Be battle it out for second place.

    Except the band uses the word demo for pretty much any song that doesn't make it onto an album. QWERTY, I Have Not Begun and Across the Line were finished products; they're not demos just because the band calls them that. Anyway, High Voltage for my choice. Shame the version from 2000 was censored.

    Yes they are finished songs but the they are not B-Sides. We can call a song as a B-Side if it's appears in any physical or digital version of an album. For example, QWERTY is a finished song, the band call it as a demo(as far as I know) and it's only appears on LPU6, so it's not a B-Side.
    No Roads Left is a finished song too, and it's in the Tour Version of MTM so it's a B-Side. Blackbirds situation is interesting. It's a MTM "Demo", but it's also a finished song. And it's in the Digital Release of ATS. So it's a MTM-era song, but it's a B-Side of ATS. :dafuq:
    Sorry I wrote a bit much, but I had to clear things up. :)

    My December isn't a b-side, it was written one month after the release of Hybrid Theory for the KROQ Christmas album. Just because they put it on the special edition of Hybrid Theory doesn't make it a b-side.

    My all time favorites are What We Don't Know and Pretend To Be. Both are amazing.

    On B-sides

    Linkin Park B-sides, by general concensus here at the LPA, are songs which are written and recorded with the intention of being included on a Linkin Park studio album but end up not making the cut as the band narrow down the tracklisting; these tracks are finished and, then, removed and reserved for other purposes.

    The only official album B-sides we've ever gotten are "High Voltage", which was recorded for "Hybrid Theory", the "By Myself" remix by Marilyn Manson, which didn't make it onto "Reanimation" and "No Roads Left", which was recorded for "Midnight". Some of the tracks which have been released exclusively for the LP Underground may well meet the definition also ... but we really don't know for sure.

    Across The Line would have been a major hit.
