    As we reported several months ago, Linkin Park recorded a cover of the Malvina Reynolds song "Little Boxes" for use as the theme song in an upcoming episode of the Showtime sitcom Weeds. That recording was finally used as the theme in this week's episode, and the Linkin Park Association is offering you the download for those who are interested.

    Download here (Right-click, save target as).

    A note, since the introduction sequence to Weeds is always the same length, the show producers often have to trim the song down in order to fit, so this may not be the full version of LP's cover. However, the official Weeds website typically uploads the full version of the theme song for streaming shortly after the episode airs. Keep checking back there, and hopefully, the full version will be posted soon!

    Thanks to AndOne for the rip, and Hahninator for hosting the file.

    I'm guessing this song would be cool if I knew what the fuck he was singing about.

    Hoped for something more innovative, but again it's great to hear what Chester is able to do with his voice ^_^

    Thanks to the LPA!

    It's allegedly about suburban development, and all of the values that entails.
    It's just a crappy folk-song. :lol:

    This is shit. What the hell is this? Actually I kind of liked it. I was just so suprised, it's so damn poppy. Not like linkin park at all.. But who am I to say what is like and what isn't like linkin park? They are genreless, and labelless. It's an okay cover, better than the original for sure

    It's not exactly the kind of song you'd make a metal version of.

    But if they did make it a metal version it would have been so more unique and stood out more than all the other versions.

    Example
    () = Whisper singing [] = hard metal sing scream type lol
    - = Rap

    (Little boxes on the hillside) [Little boxes made] (of tickytacky)
    [Little boxes on the hillside] [little boxes] all the same
    [There's a green one and] [a pink one and a blue one] (and a yellow one)
    -And they're all made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same.-

    -And the people in the houses all went to the university-
    -Where they were put in boxes and they came out all the same-
    [And there's doctors and there's lawyers,] (and business executives)
    [And they're all]( made out of ticky tacky and they all look just the same)
