Chester said “ I was a geek who though I was cool. I didn’t hang out with a particular clique, but with different people from different cliques. I was a total nerd, trying to fit in. Luckily, I found music and that was my niche. That sorta took me out of my geekdom. I was never invited to parties as teenager - I turned up with the popular people. That’s where the lyrics to ‘Guilty By Association’ came from”

Here are the five most memorable songs of Linkin Park:

1. One Step Closer 

2. What I’ve Done

3. Paper Cut

4. Numb

5. In The End
