Linkin Park Songs - Top 10 List of Songs by Linkin Park
Linkin Park’s new album, One More Light, had got great success when it was released in May.
In June, however, a crushing news caused great grief.
The frontman Chester Bennington died.
Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true.
Chester Bennington was a vocalist of extraordinary talent and charisma.
If you are a big fan, you must know his powerhouse voice.
To offer condolences and share memories of Bennington, we handpick best 10 Linkin Park songs.
Now, let’s feel Bennington’s screamed and emotional vocals again.
“I’ve become so numb I can’t feel you there
Become so tired so much more aware
I’m becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you”
Released in 2003, Numb is the most powerful song in the album, Meteora. Since the release, it has become the cult object. With perfectly matched lyrics and beats, this song is second to none.
I am becoming so numb because of you. Like a little kid, losing his way. I have made up my mind. Leaving you is the only solution. Wish I could find myself again. Sometimes we may have the same feel as the Linkin Park, what counts are to press ahead with determination.
2. In The End
“Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulums wings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away”
It is a must-listen of top Linkin Park songs. The rap here is awesome. Images in the video do really count. Lots of vines are tangling together. And finally, all the vines trap the man inside.
Do you feel kind of congenial? In the end, what may come to you remains unspoken. No doubt it is coveted by so many people.
3. What I’ve Done
“What I’ve Done, I’ll face myself
To cross out what I’ve become
Erase myself and let go of what I’ve done…”
Want to enjoy a blockbuster? This video will enchant you. Actually, montage, a very special technique in filmmaking is used here. As you elaborate the lyrics and images, you will find this song is far more meaningful than it shows.
To err is human. Sometimes what people have done do not count, what they are going to do next matter. Once you figure this out, you must be thrilled.
4. Breaking The Habit
“I know it’s not alright
So I’m breaking the habit
I’m breaking the habit tonigh”
Breaking The Habit won 2 MTV awards in 2003, 2004 separately. After five years preparation, Mike finally accomplished this song. It is a song devoted to the lead singer, Cheste.
In the video, Chester fell off a building. His soul is just like a phoenix rising from the ashes. This song has fantastic beats. It will relish to your heart’s content. For me, this song is definitely thrilled. Hope you will sympathize.
5. New Divide
“Give me reason to fill this hole
Connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth realized
Across this new divide”
Like What I’ve Done and New Divide, this song is also chosen as the theme music in Transformers.
Initially, it was performed live in Red Square in 2011. Everyone on the spot was ecstasy. You will gain power from this song. Listening to the music, there is no track of time.
Have you ever heard the analogy? Life is like a car driving through the night. And all you need to see is the next 200 feet. That is how life tends to unfold before us.
“A little bit insecure
A little unconfident
‘Cause you don’t understand”
Same as Numb, this song is included in Linkin Park album, Meteora. Faint is regarded as one of most classic Linkin Park songs. It has numerous staunch advocates.
The quick tempo one shows lots of power through hysteria. Every time I listen to the music, it seems that I feel the same with our Linkin Park. If you are alone, you will be touched by it. Are you one of them? Feel faint by Faint.
“Cause like a paper cut the pain grows worse.
It’s not so much in the words that you don’t say
It’s when you act in the distant, cold way”
Released in 2000, Papercut became a hit instantly. In 2002, it was top 1 in America and New Zealand. Unlike other Nu Metal, this song is very clean without any profanity.
Have you ever heard a better rap than this one? Papercut shows us how much a song can tell. There is a story behind every design. And there is a story behind every song. Let us discover the story of Linkin Park together.
8. Somewhere I Belong
“I want to feel
Like I’m close to something real
I want to find something I’ve wanted all along
Somewhere I belong”
This song is almost as wonderful as Beethoven’s Destiny. It blends Mike’s rap with Chester’s beast-like roar impeccably. Luckily, we can enjoy the perfect match between them.
I have been searching for such a place that I feel a sense of belonging. The kind of place I feel safe. So you sense congenial? From my perspective, this song can be regarded as a crucial breakthrough for Linkin Park.
9. Waiting For The End
“This is not the end, this is not the beginning
Just a voice like a riot rocking every remission
Once you listen to the tone in a violent rhythm”
Waiting For The End is one of the most classic Linkin Park hit songs. It is included in the fourth album A Thousand Suns. It is mature than the former three.
Unlike others, this song plays slowly and softly. And at this time, you might come down and feel peaceful. Linkin Park is such versatile. From them, doubtlessly, we will be greatly inspired.
“There’s something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing what is real
This lack of self-control I fear is never ending”
Crawling was released in 2011. Linkin Park songs’ lyrics are fantastic. Do you find the alliteration in lyrics, exemplifying by consuming, confusing, controlling?
Let us just bask in the glow of fashion storm. No doubt, this song will make you feel powerful. Linkin Park’s music is to be constructed like buildings. They are molded to stylize its shape.
In the end, I want to share something Bennington said in an interview.
“We have had a lot of success and there are a lot of great things going on for us, but there are things that really matter to us. When we talk about lyrical content we can’t just go back to being that angry kid. We need to talk about something that makes sense to who we are today.”
There is every reason to believe that the attitude makes Linkin Park one of rock’s biggest bands.
I guess some of you may disagree with the rank of the top 10 Linkin Park song list.
