"No Laundry" is a cookie song from the LP Underground 8.0 CD, named Sweet Hamster Like Jewels From America!. All songs on the CD were written by Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda and attributed to a fictional group called "MMM...Cookies".

Background

The concept of a cookie song was explained by Mike in the official Linkin Park forums in December 2008: "Working on a song for an album is sometimes a lot of work, and occasionally we need some time to unwind. When Chester and I unwind, sometimes we make another kind of lighter, fun song. We call these songs "cookies." I think came from the idea that you get your dessert (your cookies) after you eat all the rest of your meal."[1]

In August 2020 when questioned about the CD on Twitch, Mike said, "The reason we called it that was because once in a while, we were recording or writing and it was like stressful or we worked hard and whatever, then afterwards my thing was like, "after you eat your meal you can have your dessert." After you do your work then you can have a fun thing afterwards. Kind of like how "Booty Down" happened. You do a thing that you're like, "ugh, that was not working", then we'd make a fun joke song to like flip up the energy. And so we made stuff like "26 Lettaz In Da Alphabet." I ain't gonna do "No Laundry." That was actually... Chester just came in and sang that. The laundry. That shit was so funny."[2]
