It has been a long-time fan-favorite track, especially at the band's live shows. Its first version was called "Esaul" which was the name of a friend of the band that they used to hang out with and was written with Mark Wakefield when they were still called Xero.
Deftones was one of Mark's favorite bands in high school  and Mike noted "A Place For My Head" as one of the songs influenced by their sound. There was a bounce to their music that reminded me of my favorite hip-hop songs. And even though the guitars were super heavy, oftentimes they felt smooth like a keyboard, as if the distortion had flattened it so much it was just a wash of chords.

Launch about their at the time new studio album, MeteoraMike Shinoda revealed the song was started in "Lyrically, you'll notice kind of a progression or hopefully a growth, because some of the songs on Hybrid Theory are, like, seven years old.
You'll notice in the lyrics from Hybrid Theory, we're attacking these universal themes of depression, of anger, or of frustration.
I mean, we approached those things from the eyes of someone who's 20 years old. Now it's five years later, and we kind of feel that we can attack those thoughts with a little bit more confidence, and also talk about some things that go beyond those things. So this record has those emotions that we expressed on Hybrid Theory, but it kind of has a little bit more. On " Somewhere I Belong ," you'll hear a little bit of hopefulness in the chorus, which you probably didn't hear so much in your face on Hybrid Theory.
About the introduction of the final version of the song, Mike told ShoutWeb in October"It's weird because Brad, our guitarist, went to Ibanez and those guys were really helpful. They totally let him play around on a whole bunch of different guitars. I believe it's called a piezo. It's the term for the setting that they have. It's basically an electric guitar that to us sounded like an acoustic guitar.
If you flip it off of that setting it will sound electric again. You can hit the distortion pedal and it will sound just like the heaviest Ibanez. When he first picked that thing up that was the first song he thought of playing that on and it totally worked.
He loved it and they let us use one for the album. It was phenomenal. We were really happy to get that sound. He plays a clean channel one live. When he has the chance I think he will get one of those Ibanez guitars. At this point, we're not there yet.

On the booklet, Mike wrote, "This was one of the first demos the band had ever written. When Chester joined the band, we finally put together enough money to do a proper recording of it this one in a "professional studio. It is different than the other demos as it has drastically different lyrics. Due to " Rhinestone " having the same instrumental from its Xero iteration to its demo with Chester, it is likely again, not proven, but likely that this version of "Esaul" is the same instrumental version that Xero recorded with Mark.
The Hybrid Theory 2-Track Demo version of the song dating from features the lyrics "But an on-front attack, you could never run from that" in the first verse and "And the second it starts" lyric at the start of the second verse.
