Shinoda and Stryker took a stroll down memory lane, as Mike described the band's first shows at the Whiskey a Go Go and The Roxy opening up for System of a Down. Mike goes on to share that the band started out making joke songs before being pushed to create real songs. He also talks about how music labels wouldn't sign them even after Chester Bennington joined the band.
