Background

The track premiered on January 19, 2016 by Rolling Stone and was accompanied by an interview with Mike Shinoda.

The original track appeared as the final track on Aesop Rock and Homeboy Sandman's 2015 collaborative EP, Lice, which was released for free download. On the original, producer Charles Hamilton chopped up the guitar riff and vocals from Linkin Park's "One Step Closer".

Mike's remix, attributed to Fort Minor, was described by Rolling Stone as "a hard-swinging, quasi-industrial noisescape full of rattling percussion and barking pups".

Homeboy Sandman, spoke to the magazine about the remix: "The first time I blasted that remix in my speakers has been the only time that my neighbors have had to ask me to turn the music down. What I love most about it is that the beat is still hard as hell but really hand-crafted around me and Aes' verses so our lyrics resonate even more than in the original. … Suffice it to say that [he] completely laced this shit."

Mike also said:

"I don't know how long I've been talking to Sandman. We had talked about doing something together at some point. It was just kind of casual, and then he sent me the "Get a Dog" original track. He emailed and said "Copyright infringement." I thought it was hilarious. … I thought the beat was cool, but I also thought it'd be nice to have my touch on it … to actually remove the Linkin Park sample and do what I would have done today, you know? So yeah, I asked him for the acapella.

He's absurd. How does somebody write words that have every human emotion, and the actual content of the words he's saying is so compelling, and so three dimensional, and from song to song there's so much variety. It's hard to do that and have a really great rhyme pattern and delivery. Like usually people lean on one or the other, and he just does it all like it's nothing. They're such a good pair, because Aes is like … The complexity of his flow is so unparalleled, too. He almost ends up going in a fine art direction with his words. His words are more abstract. You've got one guy whose words are rooted in total reality, and another guy whose words take you to another dimension. And that's such a fun combo to me.

I mean my vibe was I wanted to keep it grimy. I wanted it to feel like the lyrics of the song, you know? It was just on my laptop, and then I just checked the mix at the studio. Linkin Park's in the studio right now, so I just brought it over to the studio to tweak the mix a little bit, to just tighten it up."[1]

Starting on August 02, 2016, a limited edition vinyl of Lice featuring Mike's remix was sold on the Stone Throw Store.[2][3]
