Background

"Grr" was released on June 15, 2016 as a bonus downloadable track to LP Underground 15. On that same day, a track-by-track video was released about the song, in which Mike Shinoda stated "I don't know what kind of day we were having, or I was having, when I wrote "Grr" into the machine. This was a demo that was completely made in the MPC. It's a hip-hop track, a beat that was most influenced by mid-90s stuff I was listening, primarily I'd say DJ Premiere, maybe a little Mobb Deep. There was a part of us that thought maybe we'd include one straight up rap song on it, and we ended going with an instrumental, "Cure For The Itch", instead. On our second album, Meteora, we decided to go with the hip-hop track, which became "Nobody's Listening". But rewinding back, this was a song that could have filled that space. I don't know if I even wrote any words to it, because by the time we had all the Hybrid Theory music and had "Cure For The Itch", it seemed like the album was together, so we didn't really need another song."

The song had been previously heard in the Frat Party At The Pankake Festival DVD and the 2003 LPTV episode "The Art Of Meteora", and was teased in a time lapse video from the studio posted by the band in April 2016.[1][2]
