Would it be different if it was ONE fvcking child? I don't think so.

The amount of depression or whatever he was going through I think is very hard for any of us to comprehend, so I don't usually just call people assholes for committing suicide. TETO though.

One of the very few live concerts I ever attended, grew up listening to their stuff. Creepy/sad bit from a different article:

Chester was very close with Chris Cornell, who himself committed suicide by hanging in May. Today would have been Cornell's 53rd birthday.

From "Bleed it out":

Quote:
Yeah here we go for the hundredth time
Hand grenade pins in every line

Throw 'em up and let something shine
Going out of my fvcking mind

Filthy mouth, no excuse
Find a new place to hang this noose

String me up from atop these roofs
Knot it tight so I won't get loose


Truth is you can stop and stare
Bled myself out and no one cares

Holy crap! LP is one of my all time favorites, this one hits a lot closer to home than any of the other recent deaths.

I wasn't a fan of Linkin Park's music but I'm sorry to see another person succumb to depression at such a young age.

Question; the song "One Step Closer"

Was he the singer that yelled "EVERYTHING YOU SAY TO MEEEEEEE!!!!"
or the singer that sang "Takes me one step closer to the edge, AND I'M ABOUT TO BREAK!" ?

Chester was clearly depressed for a long time. Some of us just grind through life even though everything is shitty. Society can be harsh. I've thought about suicide many times, but scared to go through with it. I guess the typical response "you are selfish" stops me, but sometimes IDGAF.

I always kind of wrote Linkin Park off as a pop/rap rock band, used to listen to them a lot when I would snowboard, I liked their sound but never thought of them as good musicians, going back and listening to them now I must admit they were very good, so much better then the crap that comes out now.

Hybrid Theory was superb. Reanimation, for me, was astronomical. Im a sucker for a remix album, and Reanimation really did it for me. Id even say some of the songs on there are better than the originals.

Meteora followed-up really nicely, too.

I listen to A Thousand Suns a lot. Absolutely bulletproof production on that album, and great use of sampling.

Check out the live duet with Cornell via YouTube.

Linkin Park ain't got nothing on N'Sync or Backstreet Boys.
