  • Papa Roach honored the memory of Chester Bennington during a show in Vienna, Austria by weaving a bit of Linkin Park's "In The End" with their song "Forever," having the crowd join in the singing of the popular Linkin Park song as well. Frontman Jacoby Shaddix said at the end of the song, “We love you Chester Bennington, rest in peace,” adding, “If there’s anybody in the house tonight who is walking through some darkness, please don’t be afraid to put your f**king hand out and go, ‘Yo, I need some f**king help.’ It takes courage, you know what I’m saying? But you guys, every last one of you guys are worth this life.” (Alternative Press)
