Bennington took his first step in the world of music at the age of 17 with a local band Sean Dowdell and His Friends?  In 1993 his band released their first three-track cassette. Check out the album in the video tape below.

He even shines out in the crowd.

In the same year, Chester formed a new band Grey Daze along with Sean Dowdell. The band then went to record three albums: Demo (1993), Wake/Me (1994), and No Sun Today (1997). Bennington left Grey Daze in 1998 but struggled to find another band. Following his last release with the band Grey Daze, Chester left the band.

After he left Grey Daze, he had to struggle a lot to find a new band and was even frustrated to the breaking point that he decided to quit his musical career. But he got a new start when the vice president of A&R at Zomba Music in Los Angeles, Jeff Blue offered Chester an audition with the future members of Linkin Park

Chester had a successful audition and he recorded a song within a day with Linkin Park, what was then called Xero.

Things weren't easy for Chester and his friends at the band but the vocalists were stubborn for the success. And on October 24, 2000, Linkin Park released their first album, Hybrid Theory, with Warner Bros Records. 

The album was certified Diamond with sales of over 11 million units alone in the United States. And became a huge commercial success, peaking the 2nd spot on the Billboard 2002. Chester by himself wrote the lyrics and he described the writing experience to Rolling Stone Magazine in early 2002. 

It's easy to fall into that thing- 'poor, poor me', that's where songs like 'Crawling' come from: I can't take myself. But that song is about taking responsibility for your actions. I don't say 'you' at any point. It's about how I'm the reason that I feel this way. There's something inside me that pulls me down.

Also, check out one to the song from the album Hybrid Theory: Forgotten in the video below.

Chester served as the lead vocalist of Linkin Park from its birth to July 20, 2017.

Along with Linkin Park in 2005 Chester formed his own band Dead by Sunrise with Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck as a side project. The band released their debut album, Out of Ashes, on October 13, 2009.
