|Song by Linkin Park from the album LP Underground X: Demos|
|Released||November 17, 2010|
Mike was asked about the song on Twitch in October 2020. He pulled it up, listened to it, and said he thought it was a demo from Minutes To Midnight at first but then realized once the heavy guitars kicked in that it was from Meteora. He said in the instrumental chorus part of the track, "Those guitar harmonics are very loud" and added later, "The beginning sounds later. I like the keyboard-y parts, I hate the guitar. The guitar is just not very inventive. Not really much going on there. I don't know. I don't remember a lot about that demo obviously. I like the harmonic, I wish it wasn't so distorted and so loud."
Again in November 2020, Mike was asked, "There was a Linkin Park demo called "Halo", it appeared on Underground X. Did you do it for a Halo video game soundtrack?" He answered, "No, we didn't do it for them, we were just playing a lot of Halo. And demos always needs names, so we just named it "Halo." It had nothing to do with that."
Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
