It might be too difficult or too painful to listen to Linkin Park‘s music today, or maybe it help — as the music world mourns the death of frontman and legend Chester Bennington.

Many electronic artists have been massively inspired by the multilayered band’s hard and intense yet fragile and vulnerable style. Nicky Romero, Datsik, The Glitch Mob, Dirtyphonics and many more have even turned some of the group’s best work into remixes of their own over the years. It’s clear the entire EDM community has been shaped in part by Linkin Park and the legacy Bennington left behind way too soon.

We think these are some of the best Linkin Park remixes out there, and they deserved to be played out (loudly) whenever you’re ready to do so…

Rest in Peace, Chester Bennington.

Linkin Park ft. Kiiara – Heavy (Nicky Romero Remix)

I’m holding on / Why is everything so heavy? / Holding on / So much more than I can carry

Linkin Park – What I’ve Done (Alexis K Dubstep Remix)

I’ll face myself to cross out what I’ve become / Erase myself / And let go of what I’ve done

Linkin Park – Somewhere I Belong (Tyler Clark Remix)

I want to heal / I want to feel / What I thought was never real

Linkin Park and Steve Aoki – A Light That Never Comes (Vicetone Remix)

The nights go on / Waiting for a light that never comes / I chase the sun / Waiting for a light that never comes

Linkin Park – Until It Breaks (Datsik Remix)

Original style, like an 808 drum / I don’t run the track, no, I make the track run

Linkin Park – Faint (OVERWERK Remix)

I can’t feel the way I did before / Don’t turn your back on me / I won’t be ignored

Linkin Park – Waiting For The End (The Glitch Mob Remix)

This is not the end / This is not the beginning

Linkin Park – Numb (Sharkoffs Remix)

I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there / Become so tired, so much more aware / By becoming this all I want to do / Is be more like me and be less like you

Linkin Park – Lies Greed Misery (Dirtyphonics Remix)

Now let me show you / Exactly how the breaking point sounds

Linkin Park – One Step Closer (Mantis Remix)

I need a little room to breathe / ‘Cause I’m one step closer to the edge / And I’m about to break

Linkin Park – Breaking the Habit (Ghost in the Machine Remix)

I don’t know what’s worth fighting for / Or why I have to scream / I don’t know why I instigate / And say what I don’t mean

Linkin Park – Crawling/Where’d You Go (Ghost in the Machine Remix)

Crawling in my skin / These wounds they will not heal / Fear is how I fall / Confusing what is real
