Jay-Z Joins Linkin Park On Stage for Encore Jam

February 22, 2008 4:44 PM ET

After headlining a show at the Apple Store, Linkin Park broke out the big guns for their encore at last night's sold-out performance at Madison Square Garden. After a brief psych-out where the band announced "Goodnight, New York," Jay-Z stormed the stage to throw down with his collaborators from 2004's Collision Course EP. They performed two songs: "Numb" and a mash-up of LP's "Faint" with Jigga's "Jigga What, Jigga Who." Rock Daily was there with its trusty video camera to capture the latter, so check out the clip above.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
