Rock 101: Linkin Park

This one time, at band camp--okay, it was actually Ozzfest 2001, but it really felt like being at camp, and there were bands there, and it was summer--this huge spider bit Linkin Park's Chester Bennington on the ass. Bennington is one of Linkin Park's two singers, the one who does the real singing and most of the screaming. The spider was, like, a black widow or something. The welt--which Bennington shows off, with a mix of pride and terror, on Linkin Park's best-selling DVD Frat Party at the Pankake Festival--is awe-inspiring in a Jackass kind of way: black and blue and about the size of an orange.
