Champs Sports USB Wristband
Compilation by Various Artists
Released:July 16, 2008

Champs Sports USB Wristband, also known as Projekt Revolution 2008 USB Wristband, was a flash drive containing songs by various artists from the Projekt Revolution Tour 2008 that served as a tour sampler.


The fifth installment of Projekt Revolution launched July 16 at the Tweeter Center outside Boston and wraped August 24 at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston.

Through an ongoing partnership with Major League Baseball Properties, random fans at each show were given a lanyard which could be exchanged at a local Champs Sports for a USB wristband containing "four unreleased Linkin Park MP3s" as well as five songs from other artists on Projekt Revolution Tour 2008. Fans could also get the wristband by spending $50 or more on Major League Baseball products at Champs Sports.[1]


The USB Wristband came in a plastic package with artwork and a tracklist on the back, however, the actual tracks were titled or tagged differently from what was on the package. The file for "This Is Not The End" is titled "This Is Not The End (Moon Version)", "Given Up (Live)" is titled "Given Up (Live-Detroit)", "In Pieces (Live)" is titled "In Pieces (Live-Washington DC)", "Leave Out All The Rest (Live)" is titled "Leave Out All The Rest (Live-Detroit)" and "No More Sorrow (Live)" is titled "No More Sorrow (Live-Detroit)". "We Made It" is tagged "We Made It CLEAN", "Blow" is titled "Blow Clean", and there's a typo on "This Is Not The End", which was tagged as "This Is Not The End (Moon Vedrsion)".

All four songs by Linkin Park had their studio versions released in the 2007 album Minutes To Midnight. "In Pieces" was recorded live at the Nissan Pavilion @ Stone Ridge in Bristow, Virginia on August 19, 2007. "Given Up", "Leave Out All The Rest" and "No More Sorrow" were all recorded live at the DTE Energy Music Centre in Clarkston, Michigan on August 22, 2007. "In Pieces" and "Leave Out All The Rest" are the same tracks present in the Leave Out All The Rest single while the other two are exclusive to this release. All tracks were censored by backmasking.

"Blow" is a song by Atreyu from their 2007 album Lead Sails And Paper Anchor. The clean version features different lyrics replacing the swearing. However, at some points in the song there are muted words as well.

"We Made It" is a non-album single by Busta Rhymes in collaboration with Linkin Park released in 2008. Just like "Blow", its clean version features different lyrics.

"Beautiful" is a song by 10 Years from their 2008 album Division. The single version, present in the flash drive, features the full introduction and outro to the song, contrary to the album version which transists from and to other tracks, making it 10 seconds longer.

"Enemies" is a song by Ashes Divide from their 2008 album Keep Telling Myself It's Alright.

"This Is Not The End" is a song by The Bravery originally from their 2007 album The Sun And The Moon. The "Moon Version" however, was taken from the second disc of The Sun And The Moon Complete, a 2008 reissue featuring both the original songs from the 2007 album as well as re-imagined and re-worked versions of those tracks.

All songs are present in MP3 format varying from 128kbps to 192kbps.
