It's been almost two weeks since the death of Chester Bennington – the frontman of one of the noughties' biggest rock bands.
And as the music industry attempts to come to terms with his tragic passing by suicide, fellow artists have wasted no time paying tribute to the man responsible for some of the great rock anthems of recent years, including In the End, Numb and Crawling.
Acknowledging the 41-year-old's sudden death, Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, played a cover of Numb at the MetLife stadium this week.
However, the footage, which has amassed 42,000 views since its upload yesterday, has been met with considerable negativity from fans who have implied that the cover fell short of expectations.
"If Chester was alive, and this was a normal cover, everyone would say the truth: what an horrible cover," wrote one YouTube user.
"WTF is this? This is a disgrace," wrote another. "Stick to what you're good at, Chris Martin. First you butchered George Michael's song and now you had to butchered Linkin Park song. SMFH."
Acknowledging the backlash, some members of the public rushed to Chris Martin's defence, with one writing: "It wasn't necessarily a bad cover; it was fine, actually."
"However, hearing Chris Martin cover Chester's song, along with other artists, just reminds everyone how we're never going to hear Chester's massive voice ever again," they reasoned.
"Chris took time to learn this to pay respect to a well respected singer, why the f*ck are you complaining?" argued another. "It's not supposed to be the best cover ever, it's supposed to be a tribute."
