The remix was created by Evidence and cut by DJ Babu, both from the hip hop group Dilated Peoples, with additional production by Porse 1. The track was edited by DJ Revolution and mixed by Troy Staton. Pharoahe Monch guests with a rap verse on the track.

By working with Pharaohe Monch, the band was hoping to get the fans interested in his work. Mike Shinoda told MTV: "He’s just a real mellow [guy], soft-spoken, [but] there’s a lot of hunger there. There’s a lot of intensity even though he’s been doing it for a really long time and he’s really successful in those genres of music [underground hip-hop]. But with a larger, mainstream audience, they don’t know him and that’s where we wanted to make that little connection — just bridge that gap. Hopefully, we could say to [our fans], ‘Well, we like this guy. We’ve been listening for a long time. Hopefully you’ll dig it, too.’"[1]

About Dilated Peoples' presence on the track, Brad Delson said during a linkinpark.com chat on July 3, 2002: "we are big fans of evidence and dialated so we were very honored for him to lace that track so to speak"

The remix contains a vocal sample of the song "All For One" by hip hop group Brand Nubian. Because of this, members of the group, Derek Murphy (Sadat X), Lorenzo Dechalus (Lord Jamar), and Maxwell Dixon (Grand Puba), were also credited for the track.

The instrumental samples the song "Family" by Lamont Dozier.

The remix can be heard during the Frat Party At The Pankake Festival documentary.[2]
