Frat Party at the Pankake Festival is the first DVD released by Linkin Park and is a documentary of their 2001 touring year for Hybrid Theory.
Chester Bennington has famously claimed over the years that he named the DVD himself.
While touring for Hybrid Theory, Linkin Park traveled with a small recording rig in the back of their tour bus. Clips of early versions of both "Somewhere I Belong" and "From The Inside" from Meteora can be seen when Mike, Phoenix, and Joe give a tour of the back of the bus.
Easter Eggs / Bonus Footage
Frat Party at the Pankake Festival has five hidden Easter eggs included. To access these hidden chapters, use the following as a guide.
A Place For My Head Demo (Esaul) Studio Footage
This first Easter egg will require the use of your DVD remote control. First, activate subtitles. Go to the "Chapter Selection" screen and select the "Beginnings" chapter. When Brad Delson is talking, the words "from the beginning" will appear at the bottom of the screen. When the words appear at the bottom of the screen, press the "Enter" button on your remote. You will be taken to a video of early studio footage from 1999, before the band was signed. The song that they are performing is "Esaul" an early demo of "A Place for My Head" which appears on Hybrid Theory.
Points of Authority Live at The Dragon Festival
This Easter egg will also require that you have your remote control. Go to the "Disc Setup" screen and wait. Do not press any buttons. After about two minutes and 45 seconds, the screen will change and a honeycomb-like keyboard design will appear. Using your remote, enter the following sequence of numbers: 1-4-8-5-9-5-2. After entering the sequence, press the "Enter" button on your remote. You will be taken to a video depicting an alternate version of the "Points of Authority" video featured in the main title.
One Step Farther
This Easter egg is fairly easy to find. Simply turn On Commentaries Then Watch The one step closer video, It Should Have The Video,But Play The Song Backwards
Broken table in London
Click on "Special Features" and then once in that menu click "Main" Menu... you'll be taken back to the main menu only this time the second "N" in LINKIN will be written forwards (i.e. properly)... press UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT on your remote and you will be taken to the bonus featurette in London. The name of this featurette comes from a table in a London hotel that broke in half when Mike sat on it, causing Mike and Joe to dismantle and hide it to avoid paying a fine.
One Step Closer (Humble Brothers Remix)
When viewing the One Step Closer video as part of the main title (accessed from the Chapter Selection, not the Track Selection menu), wait until the last time Chester says "Shut up!" right before "I'm about to break!" and press Enter on your remote/keyboard. This takes you to an audio-only section where you can listen to the remix of One Step Closer by the Humble Brothers. This is the earlier version of the one on Reanimation, without Jonathan Davis.
