"Linkin Park singles chronology
Cure for the Itch is a song by Linkin Park from their album Hybrid Theory. It is the 11th track on the album.

It is an instrumental piece consisting mainly of mixing and scratching. The song is very different from other songs by the band. The only band member featured in the song is Joe Hahn.

This track features Joe Hahn's alter ego, Remy, in the introduction when he says "Folks, we have a very special guest for you tonight. I'd like to introduce Mr. Hahn!"

A cartoon video was also created, using a shortened version of the song.

It was later remixed by Mr Hahn, under the alias 'Chairman Hahn', for the album Reanimation, having its name changed to Kyur4 Th Ich. There is a music video for this remix, the footage of which centers around breakdancing.

Another remix was made, possibly by Moby, using elements of Moby's song Porcelain over elements of Cure For The Itch. The first 14 seconds of Cure for the Itch are absent from this version.

The last few seconds of the song are used to lead up to the 2000 reprise of the Hybrid Theory EP song High Voltage. This track is found on the second disc of a special edition Hybrid Theory 2-CD set.

Cure for the Itch was one of the songs played live during Projekt Revolution 2007, which ended a seven-year absence from Linkin Park's live shows.


We have a very special guest for you tonight
I'd like to introduce
Mr. Hahn

Let's hear it from the great
Mr. Hahn

And now for a lesson
In r-r-r-rhythm m-m-management
L-l-l-l-l-let's begin

Alright now
Wasn't that fun?
Let's try something else
