    Using all of the tracks from Linkin Park's pre-HT to the album Hybrid Theory era, compose a track list of what you would think to be the perfect Hybrid Theory CD. To kill unfunny jokes right off the bat, don't compose a track list full of interludes or the same track repeated, or even just reposting the Hybrid Theory track list.

    Mine would be:

    01. Papercut
    02. Crawling
    03. With You
    04. Points Of Authority
    05. One Step Closer
    06. By Myself
    07. In The End
    08. A Place For My Head
    09. Part Of Me
    10. Forgotten
    11. Cure For The Itch
    12. She Couldn't
    13. Pushing Me Away

    13. Pushing Me Away
    (14. She Couldn't)

    Basically an album that starts off with your typical HT style 4-chord powerchord hard rock songs, and then leads into a more nuanced hip-hop based second half. With the exception of Pushing Me Away, but I always thought that was a great sounding closer. A little hidden bonus track in there too.

    Also, making this list made me realize that Hybrid Theory's lyrics are quite a bit better than we give them credit for sometimes. Angsty yes, but sorta poetic too. Lots of metaphors and wordplay, a lot less "you and me" than I remembered.

    I'm not much of a fan of Hybrid Theory or the songs composed during its time so I slightly adjusted the songs to fit my ideal version.

    1. Papercut (Chester's Higher vocals added on bridge + Screaming back up vocals during Mike's verses)
    2. With You (Come On scream added)
    3. Points of Authority (Demo portion "It's Time to Sink or Swim" added)
    4. A Place For My Head (Demo portion of Mike's last rap verse at the very end with turntable scratching added)
    5. Crawling (Mike's Rap from Demo added)
    6. Pushing Me Away
    7. And One (Sang like the Rock Am Ring version)
    8. Part Of Me
    9. Carousel
    10. So Far Away
    11. Reading My Eyes
    12. She Couldn't

    I think the original tracklisting is perfect but I was never a huge fan of Runaway, By Myself or Forgotten, so I replaced those with other HT era songs I love.

    Stick the remake of High Voltage between Cure for the Itch and Pushing Me Away like was probably intended in the first place, and I'd be happy. Maybe add some kind of intro track/an extended intro to Papercut too. Always felt like they could have built up the beginning of that album a little better.

    Runaway gets the boot while Cure for the Itch & High Voltage become one long track.

    I really can't better HT's track list. Perfection.

    As Xero said, the lyrics on HT were better than most give it credit for. Sure, there may be that element of nostalgia creeping, but really songs like Forgotten is where I believe Mike was in his absolute element.

    I think I'll put some HT on now. Sick of listening to UIG lol
