Somewhere I belong (Linkin Park) Easter Egg - Backward Song

I guess the first :25 seconds of the song is unknowingly backwards at first listening. Want to uncover the actual song? Follow these instructions:

1. Open up Windows Sound Recorder from Start > Programs [or all programs] > Accesories > Entertainment > Sound recorder.
[other stuff may work too, but this is what I recommend]

2. Open into the program a Wave version of Linkin Park's "somewhere I belong".

3. Scroll the slider to 25 seconds into the clip.

4. Then from the menu bar, select Effects > Reverse.

5. Press Play and enjoy.

What The interesting thing is is that most people I played it to doesn't noticed that it played backwards at the first part. It took me by surprise too when I was messed around with it one day.

This is very much true. I have Linkin Park's Making of Meteora DVD which chronicles the making of their CD "Meteora" and when discussing the song "Somewhere I Belong" they say how Chester recorded a piece and Hahn reversed it so it is backwards. They even have footage of when they reversed it. And yeah this part has no lyrics...its just an instrumental piece.

its no lie. and theres no lyrics. its just a sound of a guitar playing backwards (to spoil the surprise) when you originally play the song. When you reverse the first 25 seconds of the song, it's a guitar solo.

Yes, I just listened to it on LinkinPark.com. It's definately backwards. I honestly think it sounds better backwards, though. Sounds cooler, of course.

I heard that it was just Chester on acoustic guitar. Oh well, not everything we hear can be true.
