Chester Bennington Quotes
With the sudden death of Linkin Park Chester Bennington, the world has plunged into a sadness that can be hardly described in words. It truly feels that the world of music has suffered a loss that can’t be replaced.

The American singer and songwriter, more popularly known for being the front man of the rock band Linkin Park, committed suicide in his Los Angeles residence on Thursday morning.
Shocking as it is to all his fans, it breaks my heart to write this tribute. First Chris Cornell and now Bennington. (Both Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell committed suicide.) 

I was 12 years old when for the first time, I heard my cousin blasting ‘Numb’ on his stereos. I was only 12 but the lyrics seemed more real than life. I failed to understand its significance, which I did only 5 years later, but that did not stop me from becoming a fan.

The haunting voice of Chester gives me goosebumps and has been a motivating factor in my life. And now that he is gone, I can’t stop myself from listening to his songs on loop. Linkin Park will always be a part of my life! Our lives!

Though he is gone - and we can continue pondering on Chester Bennington cause of death - the band continues to live and I hope that they keep making songs this great.

Chester Bennington Quotes
With a broken heart and blasting songs on my headphones, here are the top 7 songs from the band that sailed me through life. The songs which appeal to all with their true to life lyrics and blood pumping music.

7. One Step Closer (Hybrid Theory)

Falling in the alternative metal genre, this song is perfect for all those who are literally struggling in their respective lives. With the lyrics so meaningfully applicable in the modern life scenario and music so motivating, ‘One Step Closer’ is everything you need to hear before you “break”.

Best Lines-

I find the answers aren’t so clear
Wish I could find a way to disappear.

6. Waiting for the End (A Thousand Suns)

Another song from the band and the voice of Bennington that talks about being on the brink of breaking in life, yet giving the strength to stand up and take control. Now that I listen to the lyrics, it reflects so much about the singer’s life.

Best Lines-

Waiting for the end to come
Wishing I had the strength to stand
This is not what I had planned
It’s out of my control.

5. The Catalyst (A Thousand Suns)

A song that perfectly captures the outrageous state of affairs the world is in through its electronic beats and mind-numbing words. The chaotic system that exists in the world today and how we are walking towards a doomed future is what Linkin Park’s The Catalyst so well puts forth.

Best Lines-

God bless us, everyone
We’re a broken people living under the loaded gun.

4. Pushing Me Away (Hybrid Theory)

For everyone who has ever felt heart break and has ever been ignored by their partner, this song is the balm. Falling under the genre of alternate metal, Bennington’s voice pierces the soul and touches the sentiment.

Best Lines-

I’ve tried like you
To do everything you wanted too
This is the last time
I’ll take the blame for the sake of being with you.

3. Somewhere I Belong (Meteora)

Addressed straight from the band’s pen to all the misfits’ hearts, the painful lyrics combined with the metallic tones is flawless. If you have ever felt like an oddball, not fitting to the mainstream conventions set the society, every word of this song will get you motivated, wanting to do what you always wanted to do!

Best Lines-

I wanna heal, I wanna feel
Like I’m close to something real
I want to find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong.

2. Numb (Meteora)

Everyone once in their lifetime has been faced with a choice- what they want against what the society wants them to do. And somewhere we all have lost to latter. Most of us end up giving up our dreams, living a life that anything but contents us. Numb is the perfect rendition of the same thought that each one of us can truly relate to.

Best Lines-

Can’t you see that you’re smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Coz everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you

1.  In the End (Hybrid Theory)

Ironic as the song gets, it seems like the words were foreshadowing the impending disaster that has fallen on the band and the singer. Poignant and touching, ‘In the End’ is the perfect farewell note that Chester Bennington could leave us, in his own voice!

Best Lines-

I tried so hard and got so far
But in the end, it doesn’t matter.
I had to fall, to lose it all
But in the end, it doesn’t even matter.

RIP Chester Bennington. You will be missed!
