And then this happened. So Cal hard rock hybridists Linkin Park have teamed up with Southern rap O.G. Bun B for this genre-smearing remix by the DJ, um, supergroup Rad Omen (featuring Benji Madden, actor Peter Dante, Dirt Nasty, and others). The original “Roads Untraveled” hails from LP’s new Living Things album, and here gets a four-on-the-floor thump to contrast with its melacholy mood. Yes, there is a drop, and Bun B sort of adopts Mike Shinoda’s jerky rhyme schemes, but it’s just weird enough to work — maybe. Learn the secret to this strange magic by revisiting the studio with Linkin Park.
