Whether moaning about divorce, howling about bad relationships or screaming about domestic abuse, Linkin Park transfer their pain into powerful music. “We spend a lot of time on our lyrics,” frontman Chester Bennington tells MTV News. “It’s a good way to confront a lot of things that we’ve dealt with in the past that our fans can relate to. On this album, I reacted to how I dealt with a lot of pain in my life and how I was sexually abused when I was young, and what I went through after that [with drugs and rebellion]. And then I look at where I am today, and take those negative experiences and turn them into positives.” The full story and video clips at MTV.com have since been removed.
