  6. The best LPU song:
  7. The best album intro (instrumental):
  8. The best album opener (normal song with vocals etc):
  9. The best album closer:

and “the worst” categories:

  1. The worst LP live song:
  2. The worst show closer:
  3. The worst show opener
  4. The worst “big hit” song:
  5. The worst “no-big hit” song:

Make your lists and share it here. Hope you’ll enjoy this thread :slight_smile:

I’ll try make my lists later.


I need some time to revisit all the live shows that I have of LP to answer this :stuck_out_tongue:


Wow this is incredibly difficult. I tried to make my list, but I feel like it would be a little bit different every time. May be the same for a lot of people here, right? :slight_smile:

** DISCLAIMER: every item is subject to change. :smiley:


Ok, this is hard but as of right now, here’s my list:

Best show opener: Session (shortened version) that goes straight into Given Up
Best show closer: Although I do like Bleed It Out a lot with the extended bridge, the drum solo and the sing-along, I prefer One Step closer with the extended outro for a closer.
Best live song: Tough one… I’ll go with Somewhere I Belong
Best “no big hit” song: Little Things. That song is pure magic.
Best “big hit” song: Numb
Best LPU song: No Laundry
Best album intro (instrumental): Wake
Best album opener: Papercut
Best album closer: A Line In The Sand

Worst live song: Crawling
Worst show closer: Don’t have one
Worst show opener: In the End (Keyboard Intro)
Worst “big-hit” song: Crawling (I can’t stand this song, lol sorry)
Worst “no big-hit” song: Until It Breaks


Best show opener: One Step closer Play it anywhere!
Best show closer: One Step closer. Bleed It Out was never able to bring me to the high at which I wanted a show to end.
Best live song: Breaking the Habit/ From the Inside (Depends)
Best “no big hit” song: Valentine’s Day
Best “big hit” song: What I’ve Done
Best LPU song: Primo (I’ll Be Gone - Longform 2010 Demo)
Best album intro (instrumental): Opening
Best album opener: Keys to the Kingdom
Best album closer: Numb

I tried to put as much variety as possible else I would have just answered One Step Closer for all the best ones. Worst, Another round of videos is up.
