This is definitely not a cover of Linkin Park‘s “Crawling” we thought we’d ever hear, but it’s incredible to watch Coldplay commemorate the life of Chester Bennington live…


In the touching moment during the band’s show at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Chris Martin slowed it down, and stripped it down to just his vocals and keyboard. This version is drastically different than the original — we’re talking night and day here — but it’s touching nonetheless.

The music industry was shook to its core to hear of the lead singer’s sudden, tragic death by suicide July 20, 2017. Many artists have been inspired and shaped by the sounds of Linkin Park over the years, including those in the electronic realm.

Coldplay’s tribute to Chester Bennington might bring you to tears, you’ve been warned.
