Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell were trending on Twitter for seemingly no reason this morning, but after a little digging, this mystery was soon solved.

Twitter user @B_oySix posed the question, “What celebrity death, in your lifetime, hit you the hardest?” From there, the tribute floodgates opened for not only Bennington and Cornell but for other celebrities we lost suddenly and all too soon like Robin Williams, David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, Phil Hartman, Jim Henson and more.

Because it’s always a good time to celebrate Bennington and Cornell, here are some notable tributes from Twitter this morning.
