Chester Bennington sadly took his own life in 2017, but he left one heck of a legacy behind him. A clip from an old Linkin Park show has gone viral in response to the recent tragedy during a Travis Scott set at the Astroworld Festival. Needless to say, #RIPChester trended before, but never like this.

The description that Twitter put on the new “RIP Chester” hashtag read: Chester Bennington is remember after a video of the Linkin Park frontman stopping a show to help fans in the mosh pit is shared in response to the deaths at Astroworld Festival.”

This clip is a touching reminder of how much Chester Bennington cared for fans. Linkin Park stopped a song and made fans pick others up who fell in the mosh pit. Then Chester and Mike Shinoda reminded the fans that they are supposed to pick others up if they fall.

Chester even led the crowd in a chant: “When you see someone fall, what do you do?” he asked the fans as they yelled back: “PICK THEM UP!”


Travis Scott had no idea that the situation at his concert was so serious. Nobody told him about any deaths or hospitalizations until after his set was over. Now he is an emotional wreck over the incident.

Sadly, Astroworld did not turn out the same way during Travis Scott’s set as it did during that Linkin Park concert. You can check out the viral Linkin Park clip below.
