Numb (3:06)

Cover of Meteora

From Meteora and 21 other releases

“Numb” is the thirteenth and final song on the 2003 album Meteora by the American nu metal band Linkin Park. It was released as album’s third single. One of Linkin Park’s most well known and popular tracks, “Numb” topped the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for 12 weeks. The song spent six weeks at the top of the chart in 2003 and six weeks in 2004, making it the only song in history to be the most successful song of the year on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for two years. The song also spent three weeks atop the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and peaked at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100. It has been criticized for sounding similar to a song called “Pushing Me Away”, which was in their Hybrid Theory album.

The song was later combined with Jay-Zs song “Encore” to create “Numb/Encore”, a massive hit for both artists which was featured on the album Collision Course. A techno remix of “Numb” has received over 3 million views on YouTube. “Numb” was ranked #92 on Rhapsody’s list of the Top 100 Tracks of the Decade.

Music Video
Directed by Joe Hahn, the indoor scenes of the music video are set in a church in Los Angeles, while the outdoor scenes are set in Prague, in Czech Republic. The school interiors, the classroom, the corridor and the outside playground are set in the Johannes Kepler’s High School in Prague.

The video follows the domestic and social problems faced during a day in the life of an unpopular young female student (portrayed by Briana Evigan).

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless, lost under the surface
I don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
