MTV Ultimate Mash-Ups Presents: Numb/Encore (Bonus Tracks, Explicit, Single)
by Linkin Park
Released: Nov 2004
Label: Warner Bros./Roc-A-Fella
"Numb/Encore" might be the first hip-hop single to mention the Grateful Dead; that fact alone makes it worth checking out. But consider that the song is also a truly surprising collaboration between hardcore don Jay-Z and fresh-faced metal kids Linkin Park, and things just get weirder, in the best way.
