Linkin Park lead vocalist Chester Bennington was reportedly found dead in his LA apartment. The 41-year-old singer left the world numb with his sudden demise.

According to TMZ, Bennington reportedly hanged himself at his Palos Verdes residence on Thursday.

Bennington's fellow Linkin Park vocalist Mike Shinoda was shocked and heartbroken by the death of his bandmate.

"Shocked and heartbroken but it's true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one," Shinoda tweeted.

Linkin Park brought the essence of rock era back from the brink in early 2000s with its debut album Hybrid Theory and gave voice to millions of angry, confused, isolated kids all over the world.

Less than two months ago, Bennington had paid tribute to Chris Cornell by performing a rendition of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah at the legendary singer's private funeral in LA's Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
