Cover of Minutes to Midnight

From Minutes to Midnight and 15 other releases

“Given Up” is a song by Linkin Park, the song was released as the fourth single from their third studio album Minutes to Midnight. It was released on February 17, 2008 in United Kingdom as a digital download. The song was not as much as a success upon what was expected in the U.S, although it did manage to chart high on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks and the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.

“Given Up”, along with the hit singles “What I’ve Done” and “Bleed It Out”, made its live debut on April 28, 2007 in Berlin, Germany. Live performances of these three songs at the AOL sessions were released on AOL on May 5, 2007. The performance of the song is available on the “Bleed It Out” CD single.

“Given Up” is one of the heavier songs on the album. It notably features a eighteen second-long scream by Chester Bennington before the final chorus, as well as a steady guitar riff for the choruses of the song. The scream is split into two 9 second long screams when performed live allowing Chester to catch his breath, although he has completed the full scream in various live performances. It dawns a distinctive jingle sound during the verses and intro, generated by the jingling of guitarist Brad Delson’s keys and a steady clapping beat by Mike Shinoda. The song was made available as a single on March 3, 2008.
