Linkin Park's 'In The End' Sang By 183 Films

Following the untimely death of Linkin Park's Chester Bennington, their songs have been helping people to remember the brilliance of Bennington's voice, as well as remind them of a better time.

The songs, while supplying hits of nostalgia, also show the way Linkin Park combined different styles of music, almost creating their own, making Nu Metal much more poppy and accessible to the mainstream.

People have been paying tribute to that legacy, helping us get over the tragedy of Bennington's suicide.

None have really been as good as YouTuber The Unusual Suspect creating a video in which 'What I've Done' is sang by 183 movies.

You don't really know what expect when pressing play, but you somehow become enthralled by just how good it is.

There's some cracking films in there too, such as Big, Shrek and Pulp Fiction.

Over the years, Chester released countless hit songs with Linkin Park and had a huge influence on an entire generation - largely thanks to soundtracking the adolescence of many a millennial with the album Hybrid Theory - but perhaps one of their best-known and most-loved tracks is the single 'Numb'.

The song got of a revamp when the band worked with Jay-Z on Collision Course, mashing the rapper's song 'Encore' with it. That helped its popularity to soar, bagging a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2006, but the original, just with Chester's voice, is still a work of art.

Now you can listen to Chester's isolated vocal track - a haunting performance which shows just what a phenomenal rock vocalist he was.

The single, from the band's four-times platinum second album Meteora, was released in 2003 and reached number 14 in the UK, before going on to become one of their most enduring hits.

Tributes to the singer have been flooding social media since the news was announced, with famous names such as Rihanna, Stormzy, Jimmy Kimmel and Dwayne Johnson taking to Instagram and Twitter to pay their respects.
