The rest of the chorus is “Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain, and a hundred percent reason to remember the name.” Fort Minor is actually a side project of Mike Shinoda, who is the lead singer of the band Linkin Park.

Mike Shinoda released his first solo album under the name Fort Minor on November 22, 2005. It was called “The Rising Tied.” A single on the album was called “Where’d You Go,” and it reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100. Another single was “Remember the Name,” which made it to number 66 on the Top 100 list. The song “Remember the Name” made its way into various different media programs including “The Gridiron Gang” and “The Karate Kid” remake in 2010. The show “N3mbers” also played the song during an episode in its second season. The video for “Remember the Name” came out in November of 2006.

Fort Minor went on a break after 2006. Shinoda has hinted that there may be another album in the works after Linkin Park releases another album.
