"And One" was one of three songs co-produced and mixed by Mudrock and Mike Shinoda for the Hybrid Theory EP. The song was written by Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn, Brad Delson, Chester Bennington, and Rob Bourdon. On the EP, Kyle Christener is credited for bass.

When performing the song live, the band used to mention "And One" was the very first song they wrote with Chester.

After the original release of the EP, the band continued working on "And One" for inclusion on their debut studio album, Hybrid Theory, but it didn't make it to the final tracklist.

Being one of the band's oldest song, it is likely that the band performed this song during the time in which they were Hybrid Theory. During a Reddit AMA with Mike in August of 2014, he claimed: "We played those songs [from the Hybrid Theory EP] a ton when the band name was "Hybrid Theory," and once we had a whole album to play, those kinda just went away." "And One" is on the earliest known setlists, being performed mid-set throughout 2000.

The live version of the song is different from the original. According to Brad, they took the outro and made it the bridge and pulled the rhythm tighter. [1] Mike has never rapped the ending verse to "And One" found on the studio recording live.

The song was dropped sometime mid-way through the Ridin' High Tour, only returning sporadically throughout 2001. It's final appearances were during Projekt Revolution 2002; it was dropped mid-way through the tour in favor or "It's Goin' Down", which was being rehearsed during soundchecks. The song was always performed mid-set.
