    I may get shit for posting this, but if you ain't got anything worth saying to this just keep it to yourself please, anyways Chester Bennington of Linkin Park has commit suicide. R.I.P.

    As much as they aren't really metal. It sucks because back in my teen years this was the band to listen too and it was definitely a gateway for bigger and better things when it came to music for me. I'm sure I ain't the only one here that it's hit the feels a bit.

    Just sucks all around this on Chris Cornell's birthday of all days... :(

    Linkin Park was never a gateway band for me, and I don't know much about Chester but from reading his wikipedia article it sounds like he had a pretty miserable life. Listening to that song in light of his suicide is rather melancholic. Not gonna mock anyone who admits to having nostalgic (or any other) affection for their music.

    I bet Yoda is in mourning. He is probably 15 deep into a 30 rack of Keystone Light and already through half a case of Hot Pockets.

    I can hear him playing Rollin' on repeat

    I wish Hot Pockets were available here. I wouldn't buy them, I would just enjoy seeing them in the supermarket.

    I don't mind Linkin Park's first EP and album. The rap is a lot better than what other nu metal bands were doing at the time, though the likes of Limp Bizkit didn't exactly set a high bar.

    Somehow from there they slipped into being the next Coldplay as far as I can tell. Still, it sucks to see anyone go out this way.

    I'm going to mourn his passing by binging on old Dragon Ball Z compilation videos.

    Yeah, I heard they had an argument about their recent album. Lots of critics shat on it and Chester would firmly defend it.

    Fucking depression. All the success in the world and six kids and he kills himself. Unfathomable.

    Chances are his children are at a high risk of also having depression so I hope this horrible example energizes their mother into making sure they get the help they might need.

    Studies show that you are 3 times more likely to have depression if a parent of yours has it.

    Was never a big fan of Linkin Park but it's still unfortunate news, regardless.

    I still think it was pretty bland, honestly.

    His wife is on Twitter right now claiming he was killed before he was hung to make it look like a suicide...

    R.I.P.

    Listened to a few of his songs after hearing about it, it was all there in the lyrics,like Chris Cornell. I wonder how many other artists are showing those same warning signs. Too many drugs amplified his depression, didn't allow him to think clearly. He should have thought of his children before committing to that.
