Chester also performed the song live with STP at Weenie Roast 2013:
“I’ve loved STP since I was 13 years old and they’ve had a huge influence on me,” explained Bennington. “When the opportunity came up to do something creative with them, I jumped at the chance.

She has been an active leader in Point Hope for more than 30 years, serving as president of Point Hope and on the board of Maniilaq Association, a health organization whose clinics provide medical care in the absence of local hospitals.

With 26 grandchildren, Cannon is passionate about giving the next generation the opportunity to carry on the way of life she and her ancestors have known in Point Hope.
“For seven years, Rock the Earth has recognized the work of some very special people who dedicate their time and passion to defending our planet,” said Marc Ross, executive director and founder of Rock the Earth. “While every day is Earth Day for those of us working to protect the planet, today we honor Linkin Park, James Hansen and Caroline Cannon with the 2013 Planet Defender Awards and thank them for their shared commitment to the environment and our future.”
