Saw the video. I wasn't the biggest fan of their new stuff but the video was a touching memorial to the guy. Depression sucks.

I guess there'll be a long list of rock/metal and pop singers being lined up for this, such was the extent of Linkin Park's reach. And it will probably be a nice mix of singers from different backgrounds.

Honestly even before Chester died I dug their post-Meteora shit way more. Not much, but definitely more than the first two lol.

Which is why, since Bennington's death, a huge amount of the professional music community have paid tribute to him, and the band's massive fan base have rallied to the cause of promoting fighting the mental illness that killed him and Chris Cornell?

You're an ignorant dick.

Hey homer, did you knew that a day to remember, him, gerard way and juicy jay praised and have a lot of respect for chester. By the way those high ratings for ICP, katy perry, escape the fate and skrillex are laughable as shit. Remember that kid from high school who laughed every time anyone said "penis"? He probably listens to Insane Clown Posse.

Yeah, whatever your favorite band is, the chances are low that it affected even half as many lives as LP did (unless it's The Beatles or obvious stuff like that). You can say what you want about their music and I myself never really cared for it, but, like, a whole generation of music fans has come to love the medium via this band. To deny that is ignorant.

'Who the hell are these people whose lives were so profoundly affected by Linkin Park?'

Well, for starters let's acknowledge what multiple people have already stated, including myself; a MASSIVE worldwide fan base that has made them one of the biggest rock acts of their generation.

Then comes other artists listing Linkin Park as an influence to their sound, of ALL genres. A ton of artists have cited Linkin Park as an influence, and after nearly two very successful decades actively releasing material, collaborating with names both big and small, it's clear they've made their mark on the musical community.

Then comes literally the most obvious answer to "who the hell are these people whose lives were so profoundly affected?"; in 2004, Linkin Park FOUNDED Music For Relief.
Among 'profoundly affecting' lives providing relief for multiple disasters such as the Haiti earthquake, Hurricane Sandy, flooding in Pakistan and various others. Music For Relief has also assisted in reforestation efforts, raised awareness promoting renewable energy for 1.3 billion people, and conducted promotional meetings for new sustainable energy for the U.S.

So, in answer to your question, quite a fucking few.

I would never have picked up the microphone, toured my country and released 3 full-length albums. How about that for not being profoundly affected?

Besides Hybrid Theory being the first album I ever owned, Linkin Park was a gateway to loving both metal and rap/hip-hop. How could this band NOT have affected anyone?

He commented on SOAD's instagram post, that he won't be in the country on the 27th but is going to try to make it. So I guess there's the off chance that he can make a last minute appearance
