Let Down

Album: Out Of Ashes (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • Linkin Park and Dead By Sunrise singer-songwriter Chester Bennington explained to MTV News how he divides his songs between the two bands. "I can kind of tell like which songs are a little too grungy, a little too punk-driven [for Linkin Park]," he said.
    Bennington added that the collaborative process with Linkin Park helps make the decision as well. "On a song like 'Let Down,' which I felt really strongly about, I really wanted that song not to change. I didn't want to go in and change the words, I didn't want to change any of the vibe, and I knew that would happen a lot taking it to Linkin Park. So it was pretty easy to figure that out."
