Default R.I.P Chester Bennington

Ok this is no joke. This is ridicullus. I can't honestly believe this. He was a integral part of a band i loved growing up.

I still really like Linkin Park's early stuff (I might like their new stuff, too, I just haven't heard it). This sucks. RIP, man.

He had a good voice. Stuff like Meteora and Projekt Revolution are an unmistakable landmark in the musical history of the 2000s. I'm even quite fond of A Thousand Suns. RIP.

i am so fucking busted up about this. Seriously heartbroken. Dude was an emotional outlet for so many angsty, angry young people who had nowhere else to turn, and no other way to speak.

RIP, and thank you.

On what would have been Chris Cornell's birthday, no less. They were close friends.

I listened to Linkin Park for a couple years when they were new. This is sad news.

Chester Bennington was one of the most distinct and prominent singers of the early 2000's era of music. It's a shame to hear that he's gone.

Very sad. Linkin Park were frequently made into a punchline but they meant a huge amount to a lot of adolescents, myself included. Always kept up with their stuff and liked it a lot. R.I.P.

We've all made jokes about Crawling in my skin and the like, but the simple fact of the matter is those songs were popular because they connected with people. Linkin Park is important both as a part of music history, and as a source of joy and catharsis for millions of people, myself included.

Bennington was an incredible artist and he will be severely missed. Rest in peace

I can only imagine how much Shinoda must be griefing. There is this awesome video of him reacting to kids/teens reacting. (Guilty pleasure.)

In a sense, Linkin Park was after my time. The first album hit when I was 20 and by then I was already incredulous about new music - "This isn't 90s grunge/alt, fuck this noise, what a bunch of whiny shit" - but I couldn't deny Chester had a set of pipes on him.

41 is far too young to decide to leave.

Eh, I was 22 when Hybrid Theory dropped and I still enjoyed it. They were a good band and didn't deserve most of the mockery they got.

This is almost too much right now:

This hasn't hit me like Chris Cornell did, but god, Chester had become another crucial voice of my generation by this point and losing him is tragic. I wasn't super into Linkin Park but I cannot deny the cultural significance of their work and he will definitely be missed.

Different strokes, of course. I associated Linkin Park, fairly or not, with stuff like Hoobastank, P.O.D, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, etc. and I am not a fan, to put it lightly.

I never heard Chester's stuff with STP but I could never wrap my head around the idea, considering he sounds so different (to me) than Weiland.

Never been a huge fan of Hunger Strike but, Christ, what voices. What a goddamned shame.
