Top 10 Best Mike Shinoda Songs

The best songs where Mike Shinoda is the lead singer.
The Top Ten
1 In the End

Mike Shinoda said this about the song:

I remember putting this together in our rehearsal studio on Hollywood and Vine, working overnight in a room with no windows. I had no idea what time of day it was. I just slept when I was tired and worked on this song until it took shape. The first guy to hear it was Rob, who told me (I'm paraphrasing) that this was 'exactly the kind of song he wanted us to write.'

Evergreen and cool song indeed. The best rapping part, along with Chester's vocals, makes it sound even more awesome. This is the song through which Mike became known to the whole world. I think this song should be placed right after Remember the Name and Where'd You Go. Mike rocks forever. God bless him always.

2 Remember the Name

It's just awesome! 100% real rap! Love it like hell. The beat is the best, and I love the music too. It should be at the top because it's better than the song "Where'd You Go." Just too awesome! Hell yeah, Mike Shinoda!

Remember Mike Shinoda, everyone.

It's sad how underrated he is, because he actually puts meaning in his songs, just like this one. For Mike, it's never about sex, drugs, or booty. It's about life, reality, and starting over.

I wrote a personal rap after taking the instrumental version of Remember the Name. I have played this song more than 50 times.

3 Where'd You Go

Very nice beat. It makes me work out harder.

This deserves to be a notch higher at number 3.

4 Bleed It Out

Bleed It Out, take it, just throw it away, just throw it away!
Cool song, man! I love your songs. When I listen to your songs, I get lost in them.

5 Hands Held High

This song is amazing. Mike Shinoda is just so, so talented. I love him so much. He does completely amazing work in this song. His voice, his tone, the melody - I cried the first time I heard this song! It's just so amazing!

In my opinion, this song is a top-five song by the band, and this was almost nothing but Mike through the whole song until the end.

6 Iridescent

I love this song. It reminds me of my love for the best girl in the world, who will just never love me back. It fills my chest with light and hope, and I let her go every time I listen to this song. Truly the best LP song ever.

This song is from their new album "A Thousand Suns." Though many people do not like this album, this song, sung by Mike Shinoda, is really touching and inspirational.

7 Over Again

This is the best song of all time. The lyrics are awesome. It's a truly great song with great lyrics. It's better than any other Linkin Park song.

This is a very good song. It's a new greatest hit and a nice rap-rock song. It's amazing and even better than In the End.

8 Faint

This song has a very relatable and aggressive rap. It's hard to think it would be down here.

Laugh out loud. It is very funny to see Faint at 12th. Lightning-fast rap, and he is the best rapper ever. Faint, Papercut, and Somewhere I Belong are really so underrated.

9 Can’t Hear You Now
10 Somewhere I Belong

Overall, Mike Shinoda has an incredible flow. He is original and spiritual, and he screams out about his life. For example, in "Over Again," he talks about the pressure he encountered after Chester died. In this song, he and Chester sing about their own personal zones that they know aren't real, but that's who they are. It's somewhere they belong.

As a matter of fact, I can relate to plenty of Linkin Park songs like this one, as well as "Numb," "In The End," "What I've Done," and even "Heavy." Although Mike is only one-sixth of Linkin Park, Chester, Joe, Rob, Dave, and Brad would be nothing without him.

The Contenders
11 Lost In the Echo

This is the best Linkin Park song. The repetitiveness is completely captivating. By the end, you feel you're about to burst because of how amazing and unconventional it is. By far the best.

The best song I've heard from Mike Shinoda. It should be ranked in the top 10 list.

Mike is back in this one, and he is better than ever!

12 Hold It Together
13 Kenji

The really cool thing is that my social studies teacher actually played this song to teach us about what happened to the Japanese after Pearl Harbor. When he played it, I instantly recognized who it was, considering I'm a big LP and FM fan. So was my teacher. None of my classmates caught on to it since they are more familiar with Doja Cat and Travis Scott.

Tells a fantastic and inspiring story, and it's a solo. Easily one of his best songs.

Kenji is his middle name - literally. Anyway, it's an uplifting war song.

14 Watching as I Fall
15 In Between
16 Dedicated

My preferred song from him, by far.

17 Lying from You
18 A Place for My Head

This is such a good song, enhanced from a song that was first made by the precursor band, Hybrid Theory, called "Esaul." It features on the Linkin Park album "Hybrid Theory," released in 2000.

Linkin Park's/Mike's hidden gem. Great rapping by Mike. Personally, to me, it's one of his best songs.

It deserves to be in the top 10. Watching how the moon sits in the sky on a dark night, this is the best vote for it.

19 I.O.U.
20 Nothing Makes Sense Anymore
21 100 Degrees

Mike's rap in this song demonstrates his ability and the quality of his raps. What adds to this being a great song is the great piano riff and beat, which are composed by Shinoda himself.
