Was This Chester Bennington’s Suicide Note? 

 The alternative scene has been shaken to the core at the news of Linkin parks lead singer Chester Bennington’s suicide. Was Linkin Parks last album his suicide note or cry for help? Before you judge me hear me out.

Chester was known for his amazing holistic’s and superb clean vocals. The 41-year-old singer has left behind 6 children and a beautiful wife. He was found hung early morning on Thursday 20th July, the date also marks the 53rd birthday of one of his close friends Chris Cornell who also committed suicide by hanging in May this year. 

Linkin Park’s last album One More Light although was mostly clean vocals which annoyed many fans was unbelievably dark if you actually think about the lyrics. 

Track Listings on One More Light album:

  • Sorry For Now

If you ask me even the names of the songs on the album are his way of saying goodbye to Loved ones, Band members, and fans. Maybe I’m looking too deep into this but it seems like one hell of a coincidence, don’t you agree? 

The songs gave us lines such as… 

Song Heavy: 

I’m holding on
Why is everything so heavy?
Holding on
So much more than I can carry
I keep dragging around what’s bringing me down
If I just let go, I’d be set free
Holding on
Why is everything so heavy? 

Song Battle Symphony: 

Please just don’t give up on me
And my eyes are wide awake… 

I’m sure you have heard the song so I won’t go on quoting lines from them. It’s hard to believe that Chester won’t be doing music anymore and my heart goes out to his family and band members. 

Rip Chester, you will live on in the music you shared with the world
