Trivia / Breaking Benjamin

  • Breakaway Pop Hit: "Blow Me Away" from the Halo 2 soundtrack.
  • Creator Breakdown: Dear Agony was written during the time that Ben Burnley began to suffer from numerous health issues. The title track was written about his ailments.
  • Executive Meddling: A minor example, the band originally wanted to release the song "Medicate" as a single, but the record company insisted on releasing "Skin" first. This is why Ben Burnley dislikes playing "Skin".
  • One of Us: At a concert they even asked their fans if they were excited for Halo 3. Ben Burnley's also been seen wearing a T-shirt with the Autobots logo.
    • And of course one can't forget that they also contributed a song for the soundtrack to Halo 2. Safe to say these guys love them some Halo.
    • Ben is also a huge fan of Star Wars— the Original Trilogy and The Force Awakens, not the Prequels.
  • Promoted Fanboy: Shaun Foist was a fan before joining the band in 2014.
