These Pakistanis Are Absolutely Heartbroken At The Death Of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington

By Sarah Babar | 21 Jul, 2017

Remember all the times you had a fight with your parents and you slammed your room’s door shut and turned up your music’s volume to the max? So they could hear the words you were listening to and got the point that you don’t want to have anything to do with them for the next few hours?

You are basically all of us. The children of the 90’s, who grew up listening to and rebelling to Linkin Park songs. It was a measure of being cool, it was a standard of being accepted; you’d have to be able to belt out all of at least one Linkin Park song. And there, you’d automatically be cool. I remember I had this poster of Chester Bennington that I’d put up inside my cupboard, so no one could see, but I’d go stand in front of it for hours, on end, pretending I was performing on stage with him, and screaming till my lungs gave in.

All the memories for 90’s children and angst ridden music fans are tinged with sadness ad Chris Bennington’s death became known

Earlier today, Chester hung himself. Why? Depression. We overlook a mental illness for so long, till it tears out of our souls and screams in our faces, and by then, it’s too late.



Today was also Chester’s best friend, Chris Cornell’s birthday

Chris passed away 2 months ago, in May. Chester laid him to rest and sang Hallelujah on his birthday. They’d been known to be extremely close for a really long time and were always there for each other in times of need.
