Remembering Chester Bennington With These Remarkable Linkin Park Songs

Today is not a good day for me. One of my favorite lead vocals, Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, has died due to an apparent suicide, TMZ reported.

Linkin Park Manila 11

He was gone too soon.

Let’s bring back the good old times by remembering Chester Bennington with these unforgettable songs.

Somewhere I Belong

The song was released 2003, a year before I gave birth to my eldest. This was my music when I was struggling, accepting the fact I got pregnant so early. Every time I see my friends working and living their dreams, I thought of a place, somewhere I belong: stuck in a rut.

One Step Closer

His screaming voice and lyrics might have said it all. This song was released 2000, but if you listen closely to the words, “One step closer to the edge, and I’m about to break.” says a lot. He might have been telling us all along his true feelings.


At some point, I got confused with their genre, but it’s always been their lyrics that caught me.

“It’s like I’m paranoid lookin’ over my back
It’s like a whirlwind inside of my head
It’s like I can’t stop what I’m hearing within
It’s like the face inside is right beneath my skin”


Another remarkable song that everyone could relate to.


Such a talented person.

This is why I prefer alternative songs because the lyrics are deep and somehow relatable. Sorry if you felt “Heavy” and “Numb.”

Sorry if you felt alone and that people didn’t believe about depression. That depression is just a feeling that will go away after eating chocolates and hanging out with friends. That’s fine. People reach out if it’s already too late.

We didn’t even catch your hint about your last song “Heavy.”

So sorry, you thought In The End, it doesn’t even matter.

Probably the most recognizable song of Linkin Park.

It does matter, Chester. Every life taken by f*cking depression matters.
