What is there even to say when another light goes out from this world? This list of some of my favorite Linkin Park songs is a tribute to Chester Bennington, who touched many lives through his music over the years of his life. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us, Chester.
This, of course, is one of the many highly popular songs that come to mind when one thinks of Linkin Park. It was probably the one that captured my attention and turned it over to Linkin Park's music throughout the years.
