Machine Gun Kelly Covers Linkin Park’s Classic ‘Numb’ to Honor Chester Bennington
Machine Gun Kelly is heartbroken by his best friend Chester Bennington’s death. To honor the Linkin Park frontman, MGK has covered the rock band’s classic song, “Numb”. The rapper, who usually spits fiery bars, shows off his vulnerable side when belting out the track.
He turns the originally loud song into more somber and heartfelt version. The Cleveland spitter showcases his clear voice over piano-infused instrumental. His emotion is visible as he rhymes, “I’ve become so numb, I can’t feel you there/ Become so tired, so much more aware/ I’m becoming this, all I want to do/ Is be more like me and be less like you.”
For the last few months, MGK was supporting Linkin Park on their “One More Light” tour. However, the tour was canceled in the wake of Chester’s shocking death. Earlier this week, Linkin Park issued a statement regarding their late lead singer. “Our love for making and performing music is inextinguishable,” they wrote. “While we don’t know what path our future may take, we know that each of our lives was made better by you. Thank you for that gift. We love you, and miss you so much.”
