L490 by 30 Seconds to Mars

Album: This Is WarReleased: 2009
  • Shannon Leto not only wrote the song and played his usual drums, but also the guitar. Lead guitarist Tomo explained to "What most people won't know is that Shannon wrote this song and played practically all the guitars on it. The only thing I did was I put a little electric guitar melody at the beginning - Shannon asked me to lay that part down. Shannon had the song kicking around and we really encouraged him to lock himself in his bedroom and do something incredible. After a couple of days, he emerged with this creation that was very beautiful. Even though I had very little to do with it, it's my favorite song on the album to listen to. It's a great 'put on the headphones and lose yourself'-type track. And I have to say, the little electric guitar I put down is the best tone I got - that's the Jazzmaster again."
  • The song features a choir of Tibetan monks. Lead Singer/guitarist Jared Leto told Q magazine December 2009. "They're the real deal. We recorded at my house in LA, one monk rescued a drowning bee from my pool."
