Top 10 Live Linkin Park Songs

These are the Linkin Park songs that sound the best live. Either sounding like it did in studio or its just a great performance.

The Top Ten

1 Breaking the Habit

Perfect every single time. Chester puts more heart into this song than any other of his songs which makes for a great performance. - lukestheman4

A place for my head is not at the top
Haven't you heard it live! Its louder than 1 step closer, best live ever made by Linkin Park...
Breaking the habit is 2nd best

It's so sad that half of these comments are people crying that their favorite song isn't up here. Stop being so self-absorbed, Breaking the Habit is amazing live.

Are you kidding me. this song is so bad and I was so bored when this song was live - Th3Zm0nst3r

2 In the End

it is the best song of LP
it should be on the first rank

The greatest hit of linkin park

In the end song so perfect

Even though the true artist is Mark Wakefield, it's still very good. Especially for a vocalist who didn't even originaly sing the song.

3 Waiting for the End

This song showcases how great of a singer Chester Benningtion really is!

One of the most mesmerizing song I have ever listen. JUST AWESOME. Beautiful lyrics, compose, and WHAT A MUSIC. JUST YO.
And their dance beat with the song in the stage, very nice.

Love it! The greatest and the reason why the fusion music is so wonderful the solo makes me reach to heaven and my mind goes up even if the song ends

Every performance of this song is just as good or even better than the album version.

4 Pushing Me Away

The live piano solo Chester does sometimes is whats on here. Both versions sre great but the piano version truly sounds amazing live.

The live piano solo sounds much more intimate. It makes it hauntingly beautiful.

The nu-metal version is way better!

5 New Divide

LP is only one of a few bands that play really well live and new divide is an awesome song that they play live. I have seen them play this song live and make the crowd go WILD!

This Should Be first Why Breaking the habit is always number 1 on all lists -. -

The sound of the crowd made myself to hear it on loop.. Even though I hate their thousand suns, I searched this song on internet in live performance... Such a great song.

Best song ever heard

6 One Step Closer

Loudest live song ever. Don't interrupt me... Shut up when I'm talking to you!

Just Listen To The Project revolution, Live In Texas And Road To Revolution Versions... AWESOMENESS! - ABD33

The hell? 7? It's the best live and that's the bottom line! SHUT UP WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU.

This should've been #1 - Th3Zm0nst3r

7 Numb

Best song of Linkin Park.

This is best forever

8 A Place for My Head

I'm nog exactly surprised that people would pick their most mainstream songsa s the top ones. Those are probably the only ones they know. And if you think New Divide or Breakjng the Habit are the best live performed songs, then you must be mad. The Live in Texas show is definitely their best live performance and they perform superbly on every song. The list should be:
1. Place for my Head (Live in Texas) tied with Faint (Live at Rock am Ring with the extended outro guitar solo and screaming)
2. Qwerty (live version on LPU 6)
3. One Step Closer (with the Reanimation bridge
4. Given Up (with extended outro)
5. Wish (a Nine Inch Nails song but LP's live version of it in Camden is much better than the actual original song)

THIS IS NOT FAIR! A place for my head should be much more on top, after In the end, because there is much excitement for the fans in the "GO AWAY"part!

I love it when Mike raps, and Chester screams at the same time in Texas

I can say only one thing here... Live in Texas 2003

9 Papercut

Mike and Chester's necking's become a tradition

Best Perfomance in Road to Revolution: "Arms up who is with Linkin Park since Hybrid Theory? " Crowd gets mad!

Makes me go crazy when he screams like that! O! Just makes me so happy, makes me fall in love with Chester! <3 he probably makes girls go crazy, when he screams. So sexy! +this song.

10 Faint

14 Castle of Glass

This is the best song of lp. It is the best live song

15 Leave Out All the Rest

Great song, they usually do this as a group of ballads now though with shadow of the day and iridescent.

Leave Out All the Rest 99.9999999999% is really awesome live, the 0.0000000001% is because the intro sometimes is too soft (Not lyrically, instrumentally)

Best song in the world. Beautiful lyrics. Beautiful music. Best Linkin Park song ever

Perfect song

16 Given Up

The extended live outro is pretty rough

17 Bleed It Out

You all must be mad!
Bleed it out deserve the 1st place! Every Linkin Park fun knows this. Just look some Live performance like Road to Revolution!

It is one of the best songs ever!

That's fckng right! Come on people! LP fans where you are? Just look Rob's drum solo from RTR - it's just unbelievable!
