This heavy-hitting song was released as the third single from The Hunting Party. The album's rock sound came about as a result of vocalist Mike Shinoda's Internet trolling. "I made some 'alternative pop' demos that sounded like they would fit in with what radio is currently playing," he explained to MTV News. "But then I came across a blog piece entitled 'Rock Sucks Right Now And It's Really Depressing.' It got me thinking. I ended up writing a response to it, and realized that what I had been working on wasn't really what I wanted to be making."
Lily Allen wrote "Something's Not Right" for the soundtrack of the Peter Pan prequel, Pan. The song was inspired by the heartache that Allen experienced after suffering a miscarriage when she was six months pregnant with her first child by husband Sam Cooper in 2010.
