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.
    • "Blow Me Away" appearing in Halo 2 could also count as this, as Ben is a huge fan of the Halo series.
  • Take That!: Ben did one of these to the reboot of Star Wars: Battlefront on his Instagram account. He claims he was supposed to promote the game in return for payment, but decided to violate the agreement because of how terrible he found the game.
