"I.O.U" is the 13th song off of Mike Shinoda's debut studio album, Post Traumatic'


"I.O.U" was one of the last songs added to Post Traumatic, with it originally being seen as a Fort Minor song and making reference to the project in the first verse. After hearing the song, Mike's friends said that "once they heard [him] talking sh*t in a rap song, they knew [he] was getting better."[1]


Note: Only the date of the very first release of each version is listed.
