    Contact Music reports that Linkin Park have been selected alongside Randy Newman, The Shins, and Billy Bob Thornton as finalists to have their covers of the theme song from the popular Showtime show "Weeds" played on air.

    The song, "Little Boxes", was originally recorded by Malvina Reynolds in 1962. A different artist is chosen to sing the theme song for the intro of each new episode. Notable artists like Elvis Costello, Death Cab For Cutie, the Polyphonic Spree, Englebert Humperdinck, and Joan Baez have all tackled the song before.

    We'll keep you posted as to if and when Linkin Park's version comes to light. For now, you can listen to the original here.

    This has the potential to become one of the most bizarre Linkin Park recordings in existence.

    Thanks to Colonel Sanders.

    I've.. never heard of this show.

    I can't even imagine how Linkin Park can re-do such a strange song though.
    o_O It is bizarre.

    I'd never heard of the show but one thing I can say is that that is the worse opening to any show I've ever heard. Ever. :lol:

    i think it makes a decent theme song. the show is a comedy, after all. LP were probably just trying to have some fun. i doubt they imagined they'd make the finals.
