The production team was composed of Rick Rubin, Hans Zimmer, Mike Shinoda, Diarmuid Quinn and Randy Spendlove.
"What I've Done" marks the beginning of a style change for Linkin Park, with more raw drums and guitars, as vocalist Chester Bennington said himself. Mike Shinoda, even if not involved very much as a vocalist in the song or the live performances, has remixed the song, making for a new version, a Distorted Remix one, which got included on the B-side of "Bleed It Out".
This remix has been featured on the "Minutes to Midnight" tour and on their CD "Underground X: Demos".
The music video was filmed in the Californian desert, expressing many global problems such as pollution, racism, the Holocaust, terrorism, Nazism, the Ku Klux Klan, obesity, starvation, obesity and many others. Also, in the video there are featured images of many historical figures such as Gautama Buddha, Robert Kennedy, Mao Zedong, Adolf Hitler, Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Fidel Castro, Benito Mussolini and others. The music video has been made the winner of MTV’s Battle of the Videos and even got the top place of the MTV TRL several times.

It topped the Modern Rock charts since its debut and lasted for almost 4 months at the top of the Alternative Songs charts. It also topped the Mainstream Rock charts for 2 months.
The live version of the single was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2010, for "Best Hard Rock Performance", failing to win it though.
