According to Billboard, LINKIN PARK has a record-breaking 23 titles on Billboard‘s Hot Rock Songs chart dated August 12 — less than three weeks following the death of the band’s lead singer, Chester Bennington.

LINKIN PARK‘s 2001 track “Numb” is at No. 2 this week, followed by “In The End” and “Heavy” at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. In fact, seven of the top 10 are LINKIN PARK songs that span the band’s discography, from 2000’s “Hybrid Theory” to 2017’s “One More Light”. Also making an appearance on the chart are two former LINKIN PARK No. 1s on Hot Rock Songs, which re-enter for the first time: “Burn It Down” and “New Divide”.

Meanwhile, on the Top Rock Albums chart, LINKIN PARK‘s latest disc, “One More Light”, is once again at No. 1, having moved 50,000 equivalent album units (of which 32,000 are pure sales), according to Nielsen Music. “Hybrid Theory” (41,000 units) and 2003’s “Meteora” follow at Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Bennington‘s private funeral service took place on Saturday (July 29) near his home in Palos Verdes. It was attended by five hundred guests, including members of all three bands Bennington sang in: LINKIN PARK, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and DEAD BY SUNRISE.

Eulogies were delivered by Mike Shinoda and Joseph Hahn of LINKIN PARK and Ryan Shuck from DEAD BY SUNRISE. STONE TEMPLE PILOTSRobert and Dean DeLeo teamed with KINGS OF CHAOS drummer Matt Sorum, Damon Fox and Jimmy Gnecco to perform “Amazing Grace”. Keepsakes from the service included programs and lanyards similar to the VIP passes handed out at LINKIN PARK concerts.

Although Bennington‘s family has not yet announced any official public memorials, fans have organized over three hundred band-endorsed public tributes around the world.

LINKIN PARK has canceled plans for a North American tour, with the future of the group unclear at this point.
