Todays song is Faint by Linkin Park.

On Feb 21, 2008 A computer expert was jailed for two years for electronically stalking Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington. Devon Townsend worked at a US national security laboratory in New Mexico, where she used a computer to track Bennington, she admitted to obtaining family photos, accessing e-mail and voicemail, and threatening his wife Talinda.

“Faint” is a song by American rock band Linkin Park from their second studio album, Meteora. The song was released as the album’s second single on June 9, 2003, and is the seventh track. It entered the top thirty on most of the charts it appeared on. On the Hot 100, it peaked at #48. The song reached #1 on the US Modern Rock Tracks, becoming the band’s third number-one hit on the chart.

The song would later be featured on the group’s mashup EP with Jay-Z, Collision Course, where it was mashed up with lyrics of the song Nigga What from Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life. The song was so popular and the success of Linkin Park’s “Numb/Encore” mashup with Jay-Z, led MTV to produce a mashup of “Faint” with “Toxic” by Britney Spears. This was done by DJ Rob Boskamp and can be found on MTV’s MTV Mash Up – Amazing Remixes! CD
