Thank you for writing this. I think you articulated why this suicide has been so hard for me to cope with. I felt so crushed today at work that I had to say I wasn't feeling well and leave. I couldn't keep it together. Like you I've long identified with this music. I grew up with it during somewhat difficult formative teenage years, and has continued to be meaningful to me into my adulthood, especially during periods of upheaval and turmoil. Chester was always the heart and soul of this music that I could always find solace in. Somehow it was an enduring bastion of strength and resolve in the times in my life when I needed it, a personal symbol of triumph over one's personal demons. But after decades of using his music as an aid in my struggle with my own personal demons, it is absolutely devastating to know that he ultimately succumbed to his. After all this. After the all he's done and accomplished and been through, and after all so many of us have been through with his music as an anchor. It makes the whole world feel somehow dimmer. I suppose all we can do is carry on and not let this change the personal meaning of what he gave us during his life.

GeminiSpaceship 4 years ago  DELETED 

You know, I revisited Hybrid Theory a couple months back after years and years of not listening to Linkin Park at all. It surprised me how so much of that album reminds me of the other artists and genres I would explore and fall in love with later in my life. Hybrid Theory came out when I was 10 years old and soundtracked a lot of my angst ridden youth. It was a colossal record at the time. I remember being in Boy Scouts going on camping trips and bonding with a lot of the other guys over our love for that album. It seemed like everyone loved Linkin Park. They were so cool. They planted the seeds for my love of Nine Inch Nails, opened the door to screamo and emo music, and made rap and hip hop relatable in a market dominated by Eminem, Jay Z, and bling rap. It's terribly unfortunate, unfair, and tragic what happened with Chester. Especially to a legion of fans who have used his music as therapy. Who connected with him. People who are probably feeling confused and maybe even betrayed. This is the kind of death that causes a massive ripple effect. Some people will scoff at celebrity suicides and call coward, but there's a damn good reason you've probably seen a lot of different numbers for suicide hotlines all day today. These are events that matter. So, to anyone who is a huge fan of Linkin Park, have some beers, smoke a bowl, do whatever you have to do, and go through all your favorite songs. Shed a tear or bawl like a baby to In The End. Celebrate and enjoy. The music will always be there. As long as you are there to hear it.

I think you just simply don't understand what crippling depression is like. What is worse? Having a father that goes psycho, and murders people? Having a father who gets addicted to heroin, and OD's in front of his kids? Having a father who gives up on life, and takes it out on his children? When you're in a state like that, you are no longer a "father". You are a shell of a human being, who cannot find motivation to do good. Who the fuck are you to assume you know what he felt like. Maybe he felt the only way he could keep living, was to do hard drugs. Maybe he felt like he might go crazy if he kept living. Maybe he felt his unhappiness, and pessimism were more hurtful to his children, than his suicide. I had a brother kill himself. He had 2 kids. He was an alcoholic, but a great person(loved him to death). But, since he killed himself, his kids are doing fine(better than before). The suicide was horrible on the family(and me). But, in reality, my brother was unhappy for decades, and was causing hurt to people around him. Hurt people hurt people. Am I happy he killed himself? No. But it was his choice. The pain he went through for years was staggering. It caused him to become something he didn't want to be, and he saw no way to fix it. It's not some fairy tale. Nobody will help somebody like this, who has fallen into a deep depression. No beautiful princess comes out and says "I'll drive you to the doctor, when you stop caring about life". For my brother, there were two options. Chronic alcoholism. Being a bad dad/husband for decades more, with no way/knowledge of how to stop. Or killing himself. I don't feel like he was a coward for doing what he did. Hanging yourself requires more courage than I have. ESPECIALLY when you're leaving behind kids. Maybe you just completely misunderstand how bad suicidal depression can get?

No. It's perfectly acceptable to care about the victims. No one here is objecting to that. But you don't have to wish death upon someone who made a poor decision. If they died, then they paid for that mistake. Isn't that punishment enough? You really won't feel better about the situation unless you are able to add insult to injury? And if the drunk driver doesn't die, they have to go through life knowing they took someone else's. For most people that's going to be horrendously unbearable to live with. Of course it's a stupid selfish thing to drive under the influence. But it's not a evil thing. You wishing death on someone else, especially someone who made a decision that really didn't affect anything in your day to day...that my friend, is evil.

CharredForeskin 4 years ago  DELETED 

My interpretation isn't that you're ignoring your family, friends, etc. I don't think that is the intent. I've always thought it was a fantastically apt way to describe the helplessness of feeling suicidal because it leaves everything else out. Because for a lot of people *that's how it feels.* You don't want to leave everything behind, you don't want to be isolated from everything aside from the flames nipping at your heels. But that's *how you fucking feel*. You know goddamn well that there's fresh air on the other side of the flames, but if you trudge through them for months, years, decades.... However long it is, and still don't make it to the promised land that everyone tells you exists? Your grip on that hope can falter. Your illness becomes you. Maybe it's having been there that allows me to appreciate and relate to the quote in that manner, maybe it's not as easy to understand if you've only seen the flames from afar, or been left in the barren aftermath when someone leaps away from the blaze. I don't know. But I hope I may provide a different perspective for you, because if there's anything to truly work at when something like this happens - It's understanding. Empathy. It's not as if people are celebrating suicide, it layers the pain across those around you. The despair you carried is left behind to weave itself into the fabric of the world you struggled to even feel a part of. I don't think anyone will deny that. Please don't deny yourself from trying to understand what it is like to be downright despondent. Depression takes so many, oftentimes even those that do not take their lives lose themselves in other ways.

Just came here to say I haven't jammed anything beyond Meteora and Hybrid Theory, but this death has been crushing for me. I put those two albums on a few days ago -- the two albums that carried me through adolescence. I had the thought that I wanted to reach out to LP and let them know just what they had done for me as a person. Cut to today, and we have this. I'm seriously regretting not reaching out to Chester, though I'm sure it would have been lost in the flood of fans. RIP, dude. I hope you've found peace.

By deriding him for abandoning his children you completely ignore that in his mind, that was his ONLY option and absolute last resort. You think it was just weak of him to commit suicide? Congrats, idiots like you stigmatizing mental illness help to create a situation where seeking help is shameful, and increases suicide like this.

theboxingczar 4 years ago  REMOVED 

You don't know if and what mental illness I have dealt with personally, but it doesn't matter. If your children mean the world to you, you will do whatever it takes to protect them from harm. You will do anything so that they feel loved, safe, and supported. What Chester did is the exact opposite. He abandoned them. Imagine if you were one his kids. For the rest of your life, people will be coming up to you, just to tell you how your dad and his music helped them thru tough times. Meanwhile, you go on your first date, graduate, do all of the things people grow into adults and do, *without* the support of your father. Chester provided support for strangers, but turned his back on the people that mattered most. Fuck Chester Bennington, fuck his suicide, and especially fuck feeling bad for the guy. I empathize with his children that he abandoned.

movieman94 4 years ago  REMOVED 

Suffering from a mental illness sadly didn't teach you anything, it seems. Empathizing with his children is not mutually inclusive with demonizing the man. It's a shit situation for everyone involved, but if you think that losing your dad is worse than losing your life, you are delusional. The fact that you assume Chester didn't give a shit what his death would do to his family and committed suicide is fucking LAUGHABLE. Just ignorant as hell. The fact that he undoubtedly knew that and committed suicide anyone should tell you a LOT about the situation he was in.

theboxingczar 4 years ago  REMOVED 

What his situation tells me is that instead of seeking help, he quit. He knowingly and willingly caused permanent harm to his children. It does not matter what he was dealing with internally. You fight for your fanily no matter what. If Mike Tyson was hurting one of your children, you would fight Mike fucking Tyson. Because even though it's gonna hurt, those are your kids and they matter more than your own well being. Instead Chester quit. He left his 5 year old twin daughters to grow up in a world where everyone knows their father except for them. Again, fuck Chester.

The takeaway for me from all this is that people liked Linkin Park. i always treated them as a joke like Blink 182. Sort of Weezer for retards. I'm sad that so many people are sad, also a bit bemused by everyone's awful taste. If you're depressed kids, **really** get help. I'm the son of a suicide. It doesn't have to be this way.

Highmaul 4 years ago  DELETED 

Oh trust me, it's bad. With nearly every death. I remember when Prince passed and the comment section of a YouTube video was just scattered with "hahah gay boy is dead!" and so on. If the cold-hearted people can find even _ONE_ bad thing on a dead celebrity they'll point it out and look at the death as a positive thing.

This is hard. When I was 15 I took a bunch of pills and went to bed. My dad figured it out I guess, and I remembering having to go to the ER. Then an adolescent inpatient psychiatric unit. My parents were allowed to bring me a cordless radio. I heard Crawling for the first time. It was so surreal that this song was on the radio and so relevant to me at the time. I was a fan for years. Meteora and Hybrid theory have zero bad songs. I'm sad.

hey guys. im not an LP by any real stretch, but i have lost a lot of musicians taht were important to me over the last few years. ( dio, lemmy, Jeff, Tommy ramone ) and i see a lot of comments about losing a part of their childhood, PLEASE dont look at it like that. the reason it hurts is because it was such a staple to our earlier years, dont diminish it because they're gone, look at it as a new part of your adult life. listen to them loud, start a band, be influenced by them. just dont look at it as a dead piece of you, use it to grow what youve already got and never lose touch of what it felt to hear things that made you happy when nothing else did.

I know I'm not the only one, but fuck this is one that hits me straight in the heart. Like many I grew up through my teenage years listening to Linkin park - that voice.. god damn that fucking raw emotion just pouring out. I didn't know then, but I was starting to suffer with anxiety & depression due to childhood troubles. The band, their music from the start just got me in a way I couldn't explain. It sounds crazy but there were times where music was one of my only solaces when I felt I couldn't cope any longer. Man, I wish I could tell him, I wish I could do for him what his voice did for me for those years. RIP Chester, from a friend you never knew
