"Izzo/In The End" is a mash-up between "In The End", from Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory, and "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)", from Jay-Z's The Blueprint. The "Izzo (H.O.V.A.)" portion of the track samples "I Want You Back" by Jackson 5. Mike's verse from "In The End" was re-recorded and Chester recorded new backing vocals.


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

  • Censored. Even though "son of a bitch" wasn't censored on the studio version of the song, it was on the live version.
  • DVD only.
  • Crowd sings "In The End" chorus (which isn't present in the studio version) at the end.


"Izzo/In The End" debuted at the MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups event in West Hollywood, California, along with the rest of the Collision Course tracks. Linkin Park and Jay-Z had to play each of the album's tracks twice due to lighting messing up.

The song was also performed at both 2005 shows, as well. The song has not been performed in any form since then.
