One of my favorite songs by Linkin Park was always Numb. Partly because it is yet another song that really helps me with my diagnoses, especially autism and when it comes to the ignorance of people or society. Here is a beautiful and very well done cover by MGK of Numb by Linkin Park. MGK is a rapper and when honestly the cover blew me away the first time I heard it as I have only heard him sing in few main chorus etc. Also the take and mood of the cover felt very different from him. I was impressed and am listening to it again. Think I will also go on a much needed Linkin Park binge today. 🙂 I have been listening to a lot of LP lately and not just because of the passing of Chester, but since a teen Linkin Park was always in my top playlists and one of my favorite bands. I will forever be a fan and my heart goes out to Chester’s family, friends and beloved fans. How many more people have to suffer or take their own lives for mental illness to get the suppport it needs, end the stigma and we can be more open about it? It is astonishing to me how easily society still dismisses it and is so very ignorant towards it. With suicide rates rising, school shootings rising, other violent acts (I am not saying just because you are mentally ill that makes you a violent individual, it does NOT. But those who act out in such violent ways and killing human beings, these people are very mentally ill. and it is apart of the stigma I think we do have to admit and fix. These people need support and help too.) but what will it take for us to get society to pay attention?
Anyways rant over…here is the beautiful cover by MGK 🙂
And to give you some kind of an idea of MGK’s original style and music if you are interested and why the cover took me back a bit. xD
Another song that has helped me through a lot especially in my twenties. ❤
