Linkin Park posted a video to thank their fans for supporting them after frontman Chester Bennington took his own life. 

In the touching clip (see below), you'll see a montage of folks paying tribute to the singer by burning candles, releasing white balloons and sharing photos. Plus, all of this is shown while the band's 2017 cut "One More Light" plays in the background, which really brings the video home. In addition, the tributes come from fans in places like Perm Russia, Shanghai China, Samarang, Indonesia and there's also footage of people gathering in Downtown Los Angeles last month, Linkin Park's hometown. 

Meanwhile, as the music community still reels from Bennington's death, producer and Dim Mak label founder Steve Aoki released a mash-up between himself and the band called "Darker Than the Light That Never Bleeds." The high energy cut pulls from Aoki's past collaborations with Linkin Park, "Darker Than Blood" and "The Light That Never Comes."

In fact, Aoki spoke about Bennington shortly after his death and said he couldn't stop playing all of the songs they've made together. 

"I've been playing every single day since I heard," he told Rolling Stone. "When I play the songs that we did together live, that's the hardest part. You remember the times you worked together, all the different moments. There's so many different layers; It's not just like friendship, it's about the kind of person that he was, what his lyrics mean to the world."

Another fellow musician who honored Bennington was Jared Leto, who performed at BBC Radio 1. Besides Bennington, the 30 Seconds To Mars frontman paid tribute to others who've passed away like Chris Cornell, Prince, David Bowie and George Michael and he performed a medley of their hits. Before all was said and done, Leto performed Linkin Park's "Crawling," Prince's "Purple Rain," Bowie's "Hero," Michael's "Freedom" and Cornell and Soundgarden's 1994 classic "Black Hole Sun."

The stellar BBC performance — which you can see here — comes on the heels of Leto honoring Bennington and Cornell at this year's MTV Video Music Awards, where he spoke about touring with them, and praised not only their musicianship but also who they were as people. 

In regards to Linkin Park paying tribute to Bennington, they're planning to do something next month in Los Angeles. They also haven't performed since their lead singer's death on July 20.

You can watch the touching video that they posted below.

 


Thank you to our fans from around the world for your outpouring of love and support.
