More Shocking Than Last Year’s?

A bunch of celebs died over the course of this year — and as tragic as they were, we gotta ask … do their deaths top 2016 in shock value?

Stars as big as Hugh Hefner, Tom Petty and Bill Paxton all passed away in 2017 — but the year also saw back-to-back suicides in rockers Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington

Remember, the world lost Prince (and A LOT of other people) last year — which left tons of folks shook. But, the fallen stars of 2017 might’ve been just as earth-shattering.

Take a look back at who we’ve lost in Hollywood this year … RIP.
