Rap + Guitars + Hippie Beats = A Cool Alternative Mix

Let me jumpstart your week once more with somethin' unexpected. Here's a mix I did containing some of my favorite alternative rock tunes, circa 2000-2003 (if am not mistaken). Once again, I'll try my very best to make this blog interesting and not just concentrate on one or two genres.
I'll be taking you back to the time when there was an explosion of alternative rock incorporating rap and hip hop beats with a DJ/turntablist as a member of the band (am I hearing Linkin Park and Incubus). If you were a fan or even just enjoyed the Beck'ish sound, some rap metal and alternative rock, you've come to the right place.

It's also a good thing, my buddy, djDoc, shared some of his CultureShock tunes, which are nice remixes of these classic alternative rock tracks as it really doesn't change the structure of the song and remains just like the original with some added flava. Once again, thanks man!
For today's mix, you'll be hearing funky laidback to sometimes loud grungy and rap metal tunes from Beck, Jack Johnson, Linkin Park, Evanescence, Fatboy Slim, Lo-Fidelity All Stars, Cypress Hill, Dave Matthews Band, Limp Bizkit, Sugar Ray, Incubus, Modest Mouse, Beastie Boys and more.
