Background

The remix was created by The Humble Brothers and features guest vocals by Jonathan Davis of Korn. Some of the stock sounds used in the remix can also be heard during the films "Pokemon: The First Movie" and "Pitch Black".

Speaking to MTV about the remix, Brad Delson said, "[The Humble Brothers] are from Canada, and they’re these amazing guys. We heard a remix they did of a Deftones song and we were like, ‘This is the sickest thing we’ve ever heard.’ They’re just one of those groups people haven’t found out about yet."[1]

Jonathan Davis has said "One Step Closer" is his favorite Linkin Park song, "One Step Closer has always been my favorite. Same thing, it introduced me to the band. I got to sing on it in Reanimation. When I heard it, it's like "Ohh this is cool. Finally a band that does something cool. It's not the same old stuff. I was stoked."[2]

Mike Shinoda added, "And as if the original version of “One Step Closer” wasn’t disturbed enough, bolstered with a new verse by Korn’s Davis, “1STP KLOSR” has an even darker, more morose vibe to it."[1]

The original version of the remix was created in 2001 and didn't have Davis' vocals. This version was released in November 20, 2001 as an easter egg on Frat Party At The Pankake Festival, but a promo CD from March 2001 containing it indicates the remix was created very early that year. In 2010, a copy of the CD sent to The Humble Brothers containing the "One Step Closer" multitracks, named "One Step Closer" Parts, was sold on eBay for $6,500. The description of the product was:

"CD-Reference: *Warner Brothers Rec., February 7th, 2001 from DA-88 source, individual tracks, without timecode; not all DA-88 tapes had time code & none had a sync pop at the top, so all tracks are "wild",without accompanying time code.

Total time: 42 min & 42 seconds (TRT/43:42)"[3]

Music Video

The music video for "1stp Klosr" was directed by Shaun Smith[4] for MTV2's "MTV:Playback".

MTV: Playback was originally aired on July 27, 2002 at 2:00pm, with a rerun on July 28, 2002 at 8:00pm.[5]
