It’s not the kind of news anyone wants to wake up to, but today, we woke up to the sad news of Chester Bennington’s passing. According to news stories, it is being investigated as a suicide.
Chester is the lead singer of Linkin Park, one of the bands who probably made our emo days during our angsty teenage years a lot better.
You can probably remember screaming out to One Step Closer, Papercut, In the End, and other Linkin Park hits. You even probably had Hybrid Theory on the loop (and you might probably listen to it again).
On Twitter, celebrities mourned the passing of another great rockstar. Here are some of their tweets.
Oh dear God. Massive R.I.P to Chester Bennington of @linkinpark this BREAKS OUR HEART. Suicide is the devil on earth walking amongst us ????
