Sad for all those around him, family etc.

That aside, terrible band and part of the problem (music-wise anyway).
Acceptable pop metal and mtv orchestrated rebellion for 12 year olds... who apparently are a bit older now.


Yeah because Katy Perry,Demi Lovato or Ariana Grande are considered true rolemodels now. Don't make me laugh. At least Miley Cyrus can sing and she managed to turn her life around but thinking that LInkin Park,Papa Roach and Limp Bizkit and all the others were just bands that only 12 year olds listened too has no idea what they are talking about. Like it or not but they positively influenced entire generations and they are miles above the sex junk and riding the dick carousel til i'm sore bull#. Even New Kids on the Block,Backstreet Boys and NSYNC are still better then every boy band that followed.

Pretty ironic that i have to defend these bands because i'm Hardcore to da Bone. Welcome to another edition of Thunderdome. # it i like ABBA as well. What about Nirvana or Queen? 12 year olds? Yeah right.


Btw i'm all up for listening to whatever you're into but please never adapt to their questionable lifestyle.

Well, I didn't expect praise for my comment. In the same way that Hitchens probably didn't expect praise when slamming Mother Theresa after she passed.

We all have opinions. I care about music. I care about rebellion. Whether alive or dead doesn't allow me to be any more sympathetic to something that I believed to be damaging to music in general or a watered down mommy-approved rebellion. If your comparisons are limited to Katy Perry & Jay Z then I suggest you press on to comparisons of higher caliber.

and perfectenemy… Miley Cyrus can sing? Ouch. We are from different worlds. Yes, sadly I'm aware that folks beyond age 12 listened to Linkin Park, Papa Roach, & Limp Bizkit.

At least Nirvana was birthed by and originally rooted in the underground. But in another light, their sellout allowed for a brutal series of events to follow.

Queen… why would they even be in the same breath?

RIP Chester Bennington!

I saw Linkin Park on the Family Values tour in 2002 with Staind and Stone Temple Pilots. Linkin Park was playing their Hybird Theory album live, and it was amazing. Linkin Park has been one of my favorite bands ever since they debuted.

I read that Chester experienced sexual abuse as a kid and also got into smoking weed at 11. Sexual abuse can really mess people up.

Dude, people like what they like. Sure the mainstream is a formulaic moneymaking science, if it makes some people happy why should you care? Music means different things and matters more (or less) to different people. I've been a huge music fan since my childhood in the 60's and a musician since my late teens. I can guarantee I'm just as passionate about good music as you are, and I'd bet you've never even heard of most if not all of the bands I like. You could probably say the same, which is great. I am happy to turn people on to the stuff I play and the bands I am into, if they dig it cool. If not, still cool no skin off my nose. I'm not about to claim my passion and taste is better than anyone else's. I can only assume your condescending comments (in a thread about an artist's unfortunate suicide) were made to bolster your own self esteem.

By all means, care about music, be a rebel. Just lay off of the cork-sniffing son, you're better than that.

Sorry but i have to strongly disagree with you on the courage and coward part. Since i have become an expert(roughly 15 years) of some kind on drastic actions like these i can tell you that fighting the urge to end your life is definitely the hardest part you'll ever have to face. Ending it is pretty easy compared to living and dealing with it second by second to be perfectly honest. You don't think about your family or the people you leave behind. Just the longing for peace and quiet and one day it overwhelms you if you're not careful. I'm glad that i found my own balance without medication or therapy but i'm fully aware of the fact that some day it not might be enough. I'm probably alone on this one but i still think that therapy and suicide hotlines make it worse for some people.


But isn't the entire process an act of courage? The constant battles and storms that has become one's life and getting to the final part where you finally take your own life? I'm thinking that even in that final moment, there has to be great courage as we have such a powerful instinct to survive.

I am pleased to hear that you have found a balance in your life and pray that you keep it.


Of course i can only speak for myself but for me it would be pretty easy. Like i said all your logic and rational thoughts are just gone. I know i'm going to piss off alot of people but some of the suicide attempts are just a cry for help and they don't intend to go really through with it. I survived 2 attempts and i was saved through sheer luck and nothing else.

When it comes to suicide, I'm pro-choice on it. I'm neither going to discourage nor encourage, it's a deeply private final choice and it's never anyone else's to make, IMO.

Reasons are different for every person, your sitch does not equate to everyone's. Ever. The only position you're in to judge one's reasons as legitimate or not for an attempt is your own. You do not seem to understand that your own black & white stance on suicide, regardless of "experience", only serves to further denigration, misconceptions & stigmas. Way to hamper your own, under the guise of "experience".

Pol is saying that he's Podesta's bio son right now. Let's see what else, the father that raised him was a detective investigating trafficking, he had an organization that helped trafficking victims, he was best friends with Chris Cornell. Let's face it the life of an overpaid rock star isn't so bad that you gotta kill yourself.

It doesn't add up.

Ive lived with depression and anxiety for 15 years. I've contemplated suicide many many times, but always end up thinking of my mom and sister who would be devastated. They don't deserve that. So i keep fighting..
I'm also 35 and at some point you get used to it and learn to cope.

Chester was 41, had 6 kids and excellent therapy in the form of writing music.

You'd think that he would have learned to cope at 41, and also wasn't selfishly enough to leave his family devastated.

Also, hanging? Leaving your corpse for family to discover, traumatising them for life?

Nope doesn't add up!! None of it!

Sympathy for an accident.
Look, I'm sorry the guy had problems, amplified by drugs and alcohol, but the guy had every resource available to get some help.
Instead, he took the easy way out and left behind 6 kids. I've seen first hand what that does to people.

Everyone's battle is different. What works for you clearly didn't work for him. Nobody knows the demons he dealt with daily. Nobody but him, not even his family could possibly know what he went through emotionally on a daily basis.

I know for me I have battled depression and suicidal thoughts a lot especially this year because of all the stress I have been under and for me my son keeps me going. I started cutting this year at one point because I couldn't deal. Yea cutting. I have never ever done that in my life and it didn't last long. I pretty much spent two months inside on my couch in a deep state of depression. It wasn't fun and some days I just wanted to sleep and never wake up but my son and my dog, yes my dog, needed me. I finally woke up one day and snapped out of it. I do use music a lot to help me in my dark times and LP music was always something I could relate to.

Glad you have a way to cope as well

im glad it only lasted for 2 months (thats like, the blink of an eye in my world) and u had something and someone that needed u.
i dont have anything and anybody but i live on every day anyway, cause death seems like the worst solution.
even if im depressed and can barely get enough energy to take 1 shower per week at least i have memes and gaming to keep me company and in death i wouldnt even have that

so thats something

but after 15 years u learn to fake energy in that; there are some things you have to do in order to have food on the table. i dont work, im on welfare, and i have to do 1 thing every month and i fake energy to be able to do that one thing but even that is a struggle

and after 10 different types of medication and years of drug abuse and cutting i finally decided to just live for 1 day at a time and dont look further than one day.
the only thing i havent tried yet is ECT and that is next whenever i get enough courage/will to do that.

When my time comes
Forget the wrong that I've done
Help me leave behind
Some reasons to be missed

Don't resent me
And when you're feeling empty
Keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest

Please, everyone, show some respect for his family. He was raped for years starting at the age of 7; he was so consumed by rage that he wanted to kill.

He was a child to a nurse and a detective for crying out loud. I don't know if they tried to get him help; but people need to understand, that some damage just simply can't be UNDONE.

Money has nothing to do with fixing abuse.

God Bless Chesters' soul - thank you for the music that got me and many others through some dark times!

OH How I related to this song for sometime and still do in many ways. I think when you have mental illness this is a common feeling, at least for those I know who suffer. You definitely feel like you are crawling in your skin and can't get out. You don't know what is real and you question everything and everyone. It sucks!

Before I was diagnosed bi polar music helped me A LOT and LP's music made me feel like "hey someone gets it" the other band I related to and swear has written the soundtrack of my life is Matchbox Twenty. OMG Rob Thomas how I love him. The song "Unwell" came out at a time I wanted to just quit life. When I heard that song I was in my car and just started crying, then when I saw him in concert and he explained the song and how it was about mental illness and how everyone at some point feels this way, he used some curse words in his description but still I related SOOO much and to this day "Unwell" is my happy song when I am feeling very low. I will put it on repeat!

Had made a post but did not see yours, doesn't matter though. Yesterday was a bummy day for me. Like many, since early middle school, Linking Park playing over and over. Thank you Chester, and thank you for the help you provided me without even knowing, too young my friend
