    When I connected to itunes match to listen to "waiting for the end" by linkin park on my iPhone 4S, I noticed something strange. First off, the song starts off in a lower volume and not quite as good quality. Then when the vocals come in you can clearly hear an amateur singer trying to sing over the original lyrics!!

    I tried it again by connecting to iTunes match on my macbook air and it is the same song! It is actually quite amusing but I am dumbfounded as to how this found its way in the iTunes store. Very strange.

    Just discovered this today, myself. It's pretty obnoxious, really. There;s a discussion on Apple's support pages, too, dating to July...

    I'm sure it's just a bad file on their servers. Match works by attempting to identify each individual track in your library against a master directory maintained by Apple. It is in their interest to match as many songs as possible, because when they do so, they don't have to store an additional copy for you, they just play you the version they already have. Obviously this track is corrupted somehow, and since it somehow 'matches' the track people have, everyone is hearing the same thing.

    I don't have this track, but I have noticed that on some albums I get different versions of some tracks than the ones that I actually own.

    I noticed this when I upgraded to Apple+ or whatever their upgraded file was called. Kind of made me mad because I didn't like the newer versions and the older ones weren't on iTunes anymore.
