Die Hard Ending song (song) by Linkin Park. Song plays when John McClane opens the bomb-proof safe of the Nakatomi Plaza. The song was released as the B-side of “Reanimation”, the third single from Linkin Park’s second studio album Living Things.

The band were inspired to write this song by their favorite movie and its villain, a character named “Die Hard.” They wanted to create a similar effect, so they reached out to figure out how die hard would end up playing at the end of die hard but found it didn’t happen in Die Hard because of how small that scene is on screen.

at the end of die hard, john mcclane defeats the last terrorist in a large shootout and walks to his wife. she asks “john, what took you so long?” before they embrace. as they kiss, a song is playing that is not the score of die hard (which is very minimal) but rather a song called “youth gone wild,” which the band wanted to be playing when they saw the movie for the first time. the band called their agent and asked if they could get a release for the song. their agent said they would be able to get the song released if they had some lyrics to it.
the lyrics to “youth gone wild”:
(singing) “you’re young, you’re wild, you got what it takes to be a rebel. (repeating) you’re young, you’re wild, you got what it takes to be a (repeating) rebel…
the lyrics to “die hard”:
(singing) “you’re young, you’re wild, you got what it takes to be a rebel. (repeating) you’re young, you’re wild, you got what it takes to be a (repeating) rebel…

So instead, they decided to create a version of just how large that explosion would have been. As such, they wrote lyrics for a song called “Die Harder”, which is actually an instrumental which more closely mimics what die hard would sound like with even more repetition.” – wiki

The first was just the second half of a fast-paced song. The second was 5 minute slow jam I made. The third one was some kind of he instruments to make up for the lack of drums. You can find the three versions in videos on my SoundCloud.
I had to learn how to play the instruments for this project, because playing a guitar or a drum set is not something I could just pick up at a moment’s notice. The first time around, I tried playing the guitar and it didn’t go very well for me, but I got a little better over time. The second video had an acoustic guitar with some really simple chords that you could maybe learn in an hour or two. I had to learn the drum set in a different way, because I don’t want to spend hours learning a new instrument.
