I have a bad habit of lurking around and answering other riddles without offering my own. So here is my first attempt the break the tradition, a simple rebus puzzle if you will. It just might be too easy.

enter image description here


I had planned to post my puzzle towards the end of the year. Also the riddle won't be accepted unless you can find them all. :)

Hint 1:

This puzzle is a hybrid one. Both a rebus and some knowledge needed. The theory is quite simple. Just read in between the lines.

  • $\begingroup$ Another hint will come tomorrow if nobody gets it. Also I would like a complete answer if possible rather than in fragments. Thanks! $\endgroup$

It is-

Linkin park, this was found by @sedrick first


what i've done, a song by linkin park.

Hidden clues:

The wordings in the description may point towards some more LP song -
Breaking the habit (OP used break the tradition and bad habit)
Crawling (OP said lurking),
In the end and Waiting for the end ,(OP said towards the end),
The hint points towards the album - Hybrid theory, so remaining ones are probably from this album,
I am guessing it is- My December, (reading in between the given line -toward the end of the year.)

  • $\begingroup$ Oh wow this is pretty clever. Nice catch! $\endgroup$

Is it perhaps

Linkin Park


Linkin Park has a song named "What I've Done"

  • $\begingroup$ You are on the right track here. But there is more than meets the eye to this one :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Nah, I'm actually not that familiar with their songs, so I don't think it's a dead giveaway or anything. I just searched up Linkin' Park songs after solving the rebus to see if the title was somehow connected $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hmm I'd say it's fine? Maybe the second picture because when I saw it, the first word that came into my mind was immediately park. $\endgroup$
