Linkin Park albums back in top 10 after band member’s suicide

Two albums by Linkin Park re-entered the top 10 on the US sales chart Tuesday as fans mourned the suicide of frontman Chester Bennington.

“One More Light,” the California rockers’ final album, which hit number one when it came out in May, jumped back to number four on the Billboard chart for the week through Thursday.

“Hybrid Theory” — Linkin Park’s debut album, which was the top-selling US album of 2001 and produced angst-ridden hits such as “In The End” — returned at number eight on the latest weekly chart, tracking service Nielsen Music said.

Bennington — whose raw metal voice complemented the hip-hop interludes of Linkin Park guitarist Mike Shinoda — was found hanging at his Los Angeles home on July 20.

The 41-year-old had long struggled with drug and alcohol abuse and the trauma of child abuse.
