    I was sitting around the other day when I thought of a very possible theory.

    Okay, until the mixtape came out we always thought that 100 Degrees was simply an instrumental Mike had made, but never an actual song. Now it turns out that 100 Degrees was an actual song, and that Mike had probably trimmed down the instrumental for the VMAs.

    It is because of this that I have been led to believe one very possible theory. Go back and listen to "Madison" on Mike's VMA scores. Surely you can agree that it sounds like a more complex Linkin Park, except more stripped down and without that much sampling or work from Joe.

    Well, fast forward to a recent interview Mike gave in which he said Linkin Park's next album would sound more natural and organic. Well, this sounds pretty natural and not that computerized to me so, I've thought of something...

    Perhaps like 100 Degrees was to FM, maybe Madison is an instrumental to an actual new Linkin Park track and we could possibly be hearing the final version (with the Linkin Park 'touches') sometime next year!

    Your thoughts?

    It could be, I'm not ruling anything out nowadays, but if any of the VMA tracks deserve to be a whole song it's Montreal, that was by far the best instrumental.

    Well Montreal is awesome, but it's not totally Linkin Park-ish. Although, we want them to try different stuff on the next album so you never know.

    Sounds like a sound theory.

    I wouldn't mind hearing Madison as an LP song.

    the begining of saturday reminds me of the bonus beat on the numb encore single.

    maybe LP could use elements of that when recording new material

    I think its the other way around. I think it started off as an instrumental and then Mike made it into a song.

    I agree with Paul on the 100 Degrees idea but I like the idea of Madison being a Linkin Park song. I think it's their style but a little different as Derek said and I can see Chester singing on it too. But 100 Degrees gives hope for the Madison theory and I would like to hear it as a full song. Possibly LPU5?

    I think that the only reason that "Madison" sounds a lot like Linkin Park is because Mike wrote the guitar part for the piece, and his guitar's probably tuned to the same tuning that he uses when he records guitar parts for Linkin Park. Therefore, the guitar part that he wrote for "Madison" is going to sound like a guitar part that would be in a Linkin Park song. If you ask me, however, it's too complex to be a Linkin Park song. After all, Mike's actually playing the guitar instead of blasting a powerchord ever four seconds. :lol:

    I agree. It sounds like Linkin Park but it doesn't. It would be good to hear something like that from them though. The beat sounds a little too complicated for me to hear Chester or Mike over it. Plus (omg) he didn't play only four chords. I'm liking this less watered-down Mike and hopefully it translates to the rest of the band.

    I think Mike made 100 Degrees a song first. I don't know when I first heard it I didn't think "Yeah this shit is 100 Degrees. Hot fiya." It's a little gloomy for him to be saying "Get up!" over.

    Am I the only one who hears a Green Day influence in Madison? It has that 'bounce' to it.
