A future star’s love letter to Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden.

Before his anguished screams were continuously broadcast on modern-rock radio, Linkin Park's Chester Bennington was just another dude who loved Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden a little too much. Fronting Grey Daze — one of his first musical endeavors; the band formed in 1993 — Bennington exhibits the vocal chops that would make songs like "Numb" such monstrous hits (check the pretty-good "Sometimes"). But without his more progressive-minded bandmates in LP, Chester drowns in this sea of grunge.
