Linkin Park is the most listened to rock band on Deezer in 2019

Linkin Park was the most listened to rock band at Deezer streaming service in 2019. That’s what Kerrang magazine reports.


The band went on indefinite hiatus in 2017 after the death of lead singer Chester Bennington. The last album released by Linkin Park was One More Light, from the same year.

The champion streaming artist was Ed Sheeran – in the “male,” “pop” and “general” categories. Ariana Grande was the most listened to female artist; BTS tops the K-pop list.

Another unlikely appearance of rock was “Mr. Brightside,” by The Killers, will be the 20th most heard song on Deezer this year. The track was released in 2003 and later joined the set of Hot Fuss, the band’s debut album, in 2004.

Chester Bennington death

Chester hung himself on the door of a room in the Los Angeles house with a belt. There was a half-empty bottle of alcohol in the room, but no drugs or suicide letters were found.

He was 41 years old and left six children. It is the second suicide of a major rockstar in 2017. In May, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Audioslave took his own life at 52, also by hanging. They were friends.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
