About Burn It Down:
“Burn It Down” is a song by American rock band Linkin Park. The song was released to radio stations as well as a digital download on April 16, 2012, as the lead single from their fifth studio album Living Things. The song was written by the band and produced by co-lead vocalist Mike Shinoda and Rick Rubin, who co-produced the band’s studio albums Minutes to Midnight (2007) and A Thousand Suns (2010).
A music video was directed by Linkin Park turntablist Joe Hahn.
On March 28, 2012, Mike Shinoda confirmed that the first single for Living Things will be “Burn It Down”. Lead singer Chester Bennington talked about the song in an interview with MTV, saying what made the song interesting was “the really high energy and the really strong electronic melodies and hooks kind of set this song apart, which is why we chose it as our first single.” Shinoda also said that the song’s meaning can be open to numerous interpretations, with an example being “what we do in pop culture, where we build somebody up to be the next great thing and then we just like to destroy them at the end of the day, and we’ve lived through that, so I think there’s a lot of personal energy that went into the connection of that story.”
On April 5th, 2012, the band released a series of sliding puzzles at the band’s official website to unlock snippets of the song. The last puzzle was completed on April 11, 2012, revealing the cover art. Another game was released, in which the snippets of the song were finally unveiled. A 30-second preview of the song was released by radio station SONiC 102.9. The song premiered on numerous modern rock radio stations.

*The pitch was changed in Smells Like Teen Spirit and Aneurysm
Single Name: Smells Like Teen Spirit
B-Side: Drain You/Even in His Youth/Aneurysm
Released: 9 September 1991 (UK), 10 September 1991 (US)
Issued to radio on August 27, 1991, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was released two weeks later on September 10 as the lead single from Nevermind, the band’s major label debut on DGC Records. The song did not initially chart, and it sold well only in regions of the United States with an established fanbase for the group.
“Smells Like Teen Spirit” was not expected to be a hit, for it was merely intended to be the base-building alternative rock cut from the album. It was anticipated that the follow-up single “Come as You Are” would be the song that could cross over to mainstream formats. However, campus radio and modern rock radio stations picked up on the track, and placed it on heavy rotation. Danny Goldberg of Nirvana’s management firm Gold Mountain later admitted that “none of us heard it as a crossover song, but the public heard it and it was instantaneous [. . .] They heard it on alternative radio, and then they rushed out like lemmings to buy it.”
The video received its world premiere on MTV’s late-night alternative rock program 120 Minutes, and proved so popular that the channel began to air it during its regular daytime rotation. MTV added the video to its “Buzz Bin” selection in October, where it stayed until mid-December. By the end of the year, the song, its accompanying video, and the Nevermind album had become hits. Both the song and Nevermind became a rare cross-format phenomenon, reaching all the major rock radio formats including modern rock, hard rock, album rock, and college radio.
“Smells Like Teen Spirit” became a critical and commercial success. The song topped the 1991 Village Voice “Pazz & Jop” and Melody Maker year-end polls, and reached number two on Rolling Stone’s list of best singles of the year. The single peaked at number six on the Billboard singles chart the same week that Nevermind reached number one on the albums chart. “Teen Spirit” hit number one on the Modern Rock Tracks chart, and has since been certified platinum (one million copies shipped) by the Recording Industry Association of America.
However, many American Top 40 stations were reluctant to play the song in regular rotation due to its sound, and restricted it to night-time play. The single was also successful in other countries. In the United Kingdom, “Smells Like Teen Spirit” reached number seven and charted for 184 weeks. The song was nominated for two Grammy Awards: Best Hard Rock Performance with Vocal and Best Rock Song. Entertainment Weekly would later name Nirvana’s loss to Eric Clapton in the Best Rock Song category as one of the 10 biggest upsets in Grammy history.
In the wake of Nirvana’s success, Michael Azerrad wrote in a 1992 Rolling Stone article, “‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ is an anthem for (or is it against?) the ‘Why Ask Why?’ generation. Just don’t call Cobain a spokesman for a generation.” Nevertheless, the music press awarded the song an “anthem-of-a-generation” status, placing Cobain as a reluctant spokesman for Generation X. The New York Times observed that “‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ could be this generation’s version of the Sex Pistols’ 1976 single, ‘Anarchy in the U.K.’, if it weren’t for the bitter irony that pervades its title,” and added, “As Nirvana knows only too well, teen spirit is routinely bottled, shrink-wrapped and sold.”
The band grew uncomfortable with the song’s success, and in later concerts often pointedly excluded it from the set list. Prior to the release of the band’s 1993 follow-up album In Utero, Novoselic remarked, “If it wasn’t for ‘Teen Spirit’ I don’t know how Nevermind would have done,” and observed, “There are no ‘Teen Spirits’ on In Utero.” Cobain said in 1994, “I still like playing ‘Teen Spirit,’ but it’s almost an embarrassment to play it [. . .] Everyone has focused on that song so much.”
American 7″ vinyl and cassette releases included ‘Even In His Youth’. The American 12″, a second cassette and CD also featured ‘Aneurysm’. UK 7″ and cassette releases included ‘Drain You’, 12″ versions ‘Even In His Youth’ and the CD all four songs. Whilst all American versions lack ‘Drain You’ it was included on some European releases.
‘Even in His Youth’ and ‘Aneurysm’ were previously unreleased, this version of ‘Aneurysm’ is different than the version on Incesticide.
The back cover shot was taken by Charles Petersen at Nirvana’s 03/08/91 appearance at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver.
