Chester Bennington would’ve turned 42 today (March 20.)

Like those who left us all too soon, it’s still hard to think of the Linkin Park singer in the past tense.  In the eight months since his tragic suicide death, Bennington’s trademark roar cut just a little deeper whenever listening to any Linkin Park song as many still come to grips with the silencing of one of rock’s most powerful voices.

Throughout their career, Linkin Park has never been afraid of taking risks, both in the studio and in front of the camera.  Their music video evolution alone is truly something to behold.  In honor of Bennington’s life, we look back on Linkin Park’s remarkable music video evolution, which also reflects the band’s sonic evolution.
