"Hole" is the eighth track on the albums Wake Me and ...No Sun Today.


Jonathan Krause came up with the musical idea for "Hole", describing it as a "mostly bass driven song".[1]

On October 6, 1994, the very first day of working on Wake Me, the album's producer David Knauer recorded Grey Daze playing live in his studio to see what they had in store for their debut album. He recorded their performance straight to DAT tape and had Chester say the name of every song so it was documented on tape as well.[2] "Hole" was among the songs that made the album.

Under a new lineup consisting of Chester Bennington, Bobby Benish, Mace Beyers and Sean Dowdell, the band had their first pre-production sessions for their second studio album in February 1996 with David Knauer. There, they recorded a new version of "Hole". The album version, however, was recorded by Michael Jones during their pre-production session for ...No Sun Today in December.[1]

In 2018, Grey Daze recorded a new version of "Hole" for the Amends album project, but it didn't make the cut. This version of the song was streamed by the band on Instagram in July 2018.[3]


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