"Grudgematch" was a demo recorded during the A Thousand Suns sessions.
Samples of the song were released on December 10, 2012 as part of Stagelight: Linkin Park Edition.
The full demo was released on February 16, 2016 as a downloadable bonus track of the LP Underground 15 CD. An LPU exclusive video about the song was released on the same day. On the video, Mike said: "It was during the time of A Thousand Suns, which was the album we were making. We're further along in the process. And we were still writing things to kind of fill in the album. We also were looking at news and looking at things that were going on in the world and I think there was already stuff about nuclear war on the album, like we were already starting to put those elements in there, but there wasn't yet the conflict down like the real like aggressive element. A Thousand Suns ended up being Wretches And Kings and When They Come For Me, those were probably the two that were the most about being on that type of scenario. But before those came about we were experimenting with the song Grudgematch. Maybe you can think of like militias in third world countries. Those stories in the news were kind of things that were inspiring us at the time, like to write a song to represent those on the album."
