Songs from the Underground is a Linkin Park EP that consists of a collection of six popular Linkin Park Underground (LPU) tracks from the past 7 years and two exclusive tracks: "Hunger Strike - Chris Cornell featuring Chester Bennington (Live)" and "My December (Live)". This CD was released in limited quantities and is only available at Best Buy. The six previously released tracks are from the LPU 1.0, 2.0, 4.0, and 6.0 EPs respectively. The 3.0, 5.0, and 7.0 EPs all consist of live recordings which is why they are absent on this EP. The cover of this EP, however includes the artwork for all 7 LPU EPs released at the time.
Those who purchase the CD will also receive a free one-month trial to the Linkin Park Underground. To coincide with this release, all LPU members (including trial members) can download a free exclusive track, "Crawling (Live)", through the Linkin Park Underground website. It was recorded on the Projekt Revolution 2008 tour (specifically the 07/18/2008 show in Burgettstown, PA) and features the reanimated intro with Mike Shinoda rapping the first verse of "Hands Held High" over it and Chris Cornell comes out during the second verse of "Crawling" and sings.
The retail price is $9.99, but since the EP was released on Black Friday, it was on sale for $5.99. The same day, many Best Buy stores around the U.S. also mistakenly released the Linkin Park Underground 8 package, which wasn't supposed to go on sale until December 4, 2008.
