Background

"Hurry" was released on April 15, 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. In the video, Mike said: "This release is a song from around 1999. The demo is called "Hurry", because the song never got words or lyrics or anything. What's interesting, I think, about this track is that it was basically completely made on an MPC. At that time, the idea of really blending hip hop and rock was still very new and the technology then wasn't what it was today, so I was trying to figure out ways to add this hip hop flavor to the music creation process, so rather than recording the drums and the guitars the way you would normally record them, I was recording them straight into the MPC, and then I was programming them out inside the box. In this song, all the drum sounds you hear, all guitar sounds you hear are actually basically being played off of pads. Brad's playing "Duh duh duh, dun duh duh duh, duh duh", and then that would be one button. All the drum parts are actually sampled from individual hits by Rob on drums mic'd up in our practice studio. I think it was after "A Place For My Head" and probably before "With You" and "Runaway", so definitely the rawness of this track and also the evolution hasn't really happened yet. But for those of you that have heard earlier Xero demos, Linkin Park's original name, there [are] demos called "Carousel" and "Part Of Me", and if you play this song next to those then I think that you can really hear that's the era of the band that this came from."

An alternative version of the demo was featured in the 2003 LPTV episode "Rock The Mullet". The released version was featured in the "Making Of In the End Video" on Frat Party At The Pankake Festival and in the LPU exclusive video "Drumstick Secret With Rob", released on April 1, 2016.

Some samples and riffs from "So Far Away" were used in the creation of the song. It is unknown which song came first in the writing process, "So Far Away" or "Hurry", but both share a lot of the same elements. Parts of "So Far Away" were also used again in "Soundtrack".
