Background

"Booty Down" is a song by Mike Shinoda made during the 2020 global COVID-19 pandemic.

In March 2020, the global pandemic created by the COVID-19 coronavirus caused communities to quarantine at home. During this time, Mike Shinoda decided to start live streaming online and inviting fans to watch him create new instrumental music.

"Booty Down" was a track made by Mike on April 27, 2020.[1] Mike originally was trying to create a Panic! At The Disco-style jam, and made decent progress on it, but gave up and said that the track was a failure. Mike said, "Alright, I'm officially with this one. I give up. It has bested me, it has gotten the best of me... this track... not feeling it."

At the very end of his stream that day, he said, "For those of you who don't make music or beats or whatever, who have never gone through a sound library, this is a super funny thing that they do. People who put out sample packs and sound packs and stuff like that. A lot of them have like human vocals, but listen to some of this stuff. These are breaths." As he was scrolling through, he said, "At some point we should do a song with just corny vocal samples."

When he came across a sample that said, "Alright!", he said, "We're going to make a song called Alright. That'll be the song. There's some really bad ones too, we've gotta go to one of the hip hop ones... like hey here's some rap vocal samples." When it said different versions of the word "booty", "booty up", and "booty down", Mike said, "We'll make a song with just these. Native Instruments, how dare you." And "Booty Down" was born from the fun samples Mike came across while looking through the hip hop samples.

Ever since he created the song, it has become a meme in the Linkin Park community. Every time Mike answered questions at the end of his streams after April 27, the chat would go crazy and Mike would get completely distracted whenever "Booty Down" came on his playlist.
