'Carpool Karaoke' episode with Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington released

15 October 2017

Linkin Park shared their episode of Carpool Karaoke via their Facebook and Apple Music on Thursday.

Linkin Park announced last week that with the blessing of Bennington's family, they'd be airing their episode of the Apple TV show, and made good on the promise Thursday, when they premiered the vehicle ride they took July 14, six days before Bennington committed suicide.

The video features Bennington, Linkin Park bandmates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, and actor Ken Jeong.

All this after an amusing if slightly awkward pre-singing banter session in which Jeong declares his fanhood and tries to weasel his way into the band, which he plans to rechristen as "LinKen Park".

Over the course of the episode, the auto joyously sings Outkast's "Hey Ya", Linkin Park's "Numb", "In the End", "Talking to Myself" and Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge".

The video started with the script: "With the blessing of Chester's family and his bandmates we share this episode and dedicate it to the memory of Chester". Bennington says at one point during a sing-along to the band's song "In the End".

Singing aside, Bennington also spoke frankly of his children, and explained that he just wanted them to embrace what makes them happy. "We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want".

Bennington was found dead in his home near Los Angeles in July after taking his own life.

Linkin Park are seen laughing, singing and playing along during an episode of Carpool Karaoke. The post includes an appeal for donations to Music for Relief's One More Light Fund - a disaster relief charity formed by the band in 2004 - in honor of the late singer.
