Yesterday I was saddened to hear of the passing of Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. Linkin Park was one of the first bands to start getting me into heavier music. I remember hearing “In the End” on the radio back in elementary school and really liking it, and of course I listened to them to a ton through middle school and high school. Their first three albums at least. I sort of lost my interest in their newer music, but those early albums certainly had an impact on the direction my music tastes progressed in.

My question for today is, what’s something that had significant impact on you in your youth? Share below or Talk Amongst Yourselves about whatever you like below.
