"In Stereo" as written by and Mike Shinoda....
Jay-Z:
That beat is hot

Mike:
This is how it goes
Welcome one and all to the show
We're wired up, fired up, fuckin ready to go
In the back of the parking lot outside of the bar
Twenty deep, twenty feet from the boulevard
Black hoodies, black caps, black label in glasses
Previewing the new shit before all the masses
Cause the first thing I need when I got a new beat
Is to see how it sounds echoing off the street
I just take it for a spin, pop the CD in
Slide it up to ten and get that rear view shaking
Then play it again so there's no mistaking
San Andreas, the block get this bitch earthquaking like

[Chorus]
Oh-oh
Ready for it? Here we go
We got the whole block rockin' in stereo
We're taking control, letting everybody know
And if you feel it let me hear everybody go
Oh-Oh

You're not ready, I got plenty cups
But twenty months drop steadily
Plenty tracks to empty on you wack pedigree
I'm backed heavily while you're back peddling
Forget the chit chat, on me homie kick back
I'm on that shit that can get your homie bitch-slapped
So zip your lip back, listen and watch
We got the whole block rockin off the way the beat knocks
You don't have to warn the people on the corner - they know
That if you're standing on that corner then you're getting that show
World premiering you're hearing that Machine Shop flow
San Andreas the block, get this bitch earth quaking like

[Chorus]

Turn the key, turn the volume up to loud
Roll right, roll every window down
Let the whole block know what this is about
Turn it up, y'all, burn that system out
Turn the key, turn the volume up to loud
Roll right, roll every window down
Let the whole block know what this is about
Turn it up, y'all, burn out that system like

[Chorus]

Let's go ahead and test out the speakers
You ready? Let's go, like this

    General CommentI think this is a great addition to the album. It's a fun song with a ridiculous beat.

    General CommentThis is the compulsory "crank up the beat in the car subwoofers and ride those spinnaz to the show" song.

    General CommentGreat song. I dunno if any people will agree with this, but I think the music (not lyrics) just the instrumentals and lyrics sound fairly similar to Linkin Park, just because it's like... experimental.

    General Commentyeah; this song is about listening to something in your car. real loudly. ;) it comes from mike pumping LP demos real loudly in his car stereo when he leaves the studio with them.

    General CommentYa, pretty much, if you can't get the lyrics, your obviously not trying.

    May not have a deep or insightful meaning, but, oh well. Beats crazy.
