Watch Linkin Park's Carpool Karaoke, Dedicated to Chester Bennington

Sharing a video of the group's appearance on an unaired episode of Carpool Karaoke on Facebook, Linkin Park told fans, "Watch our Carpool Karaoke episode with Ken Jeong now, streaming for free right here on Facebook".

Series creator James Corden previously said that the late singer's family would decide if the episode would air.

"We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don't think there's any other way we could deal with it, really", the late night host continued.

Nevertheless, the clip shows Bennington looking in exceptionally high spirits as he cruises around belting out his own Linkin Park songs, as well Outkast's "Hey Ya!", with comedian Ken Jeong riding shotgun. The cause of death was established by the L.A. County Coroner's office to be suicide by hanging.


Bennington died on July 20 at the age of 41. Per Carpool Karaoke tradition, Bennington gets into some mischief on a party bus and shares a story about one of the worst jobs he has ever had.

The "Carpool Karaoke" episode was filmed six days before his death.

The bittersweet episode, which was taped a week before 41-year-old Bennington committed suicide, opens with Jeong getting into the front seat of the auto and asking if he can join the rock band.

The video shows "LinKen Park" singing a number of Linkin Park hits including Numb, In The End and Talking To Myself as they drive through Los Angeles.
