His body was reportedly discovered Thursday morning just before 9am. Linkin Park were one of the seminal bands of the noughties rap-metal movement, with their debut album, Hybrid Theory, considered to be a metl masterpiece. Chester’s last personal tweet was singing on a packed out tour in front of an adoring crowd.
