Chester Bennington Tributes

I’m still quite shocked that Linkin Park’s front man Chester Bennington is no longer with us.  His voice, and lyrics really got me into music fully, and pretty much molded my music listening preferences as it is today.  I still get a bit emotional when I hear their songs now.

I came across 2 tributes to Chester by Coldplays  Chris Martin and 30 Seconds to Mars’ Jared Leto.  Very hear felt to say the least.

Earworm: “Hurricane” by Thirty Seconds to Mars

Ah, Thirty Seconds to Mars. Your lyrics are enthralling and exciting and ignite that curiosity in your audience. A lot of people like to question the lyrics from any band, and some just like to memorize the lyrics and sing them by heart. With a lot of the songs from the album This Is War, you can only memorize certain lyrics due to the complexity. Lyrics that get stuck in your head and resound over and over and over again. That makes Hurricane today’s Earworm. These lyrics. Just… Echo.

“Tell me would you kill, to save a life?
Tell me would you kill, to prove you’re right?
Crash crash
Burn, let it all burn.
This hurricane chases us all under ground.

No matter how many deaths that I die, I will never forget.
No matter how many lives that I live, I will never regret.
There is a fire inside of this heart and a riot about to explode in flames.
Where is your God?
Where is your God?
Where is your God?”

Those are the lyrics I pretty much know by heart, of course the first stanza is the chorus.

Here’s the short film that is the music video for Hurricane. (WARNING: NSFW DUE TO NUDITY, PARTIAL NUDITY, VIOLENCE, AND GRAPHIC SEXUAL DEPICTIONS)
