Linkin Park’s “Numb,” “In The End,” “Heavy” Re-Enter Billboard Hot 100

Three songs return to the chart following Chester Bennington’s passing.

The death of lead singer Chester Bennington prompted many to revisit Linkin Park’s catalog.

“Numb,” “In The End,” and “Heavy (featuring kiiara)” accordingly return to the Billboard Hot 100.

“Numb” re-enters the chart at #34, while “In The End” and “Heavy” take #37 and #45, respectively.

It is possible that other Linkin Park songs would have ranked within the week’s Top 100, but Billboard rules only allow older songs to return to the chart if they have enough points for a Top 50 position.
