'Carpool Karaoke' taped before Chester Bennington's death released

A video of Chester Bennington taking part in Carpool Karaoke alongside his Linkin Park bandmates and U.S. comedian Ken Jeong recorded less than a week before his death has been released.

Bennington and the band joined comedian/actor Ken Jeong to film an episode of the Apple Music series before the signer passed away in July.

Given the context, the episode is hard to watch, but you have to think this is the way Bennington's family and bandmates would want him to be remembered: laughing out loud and singing his heart out with his friends.

"It feels like a band already". His cause of death was ruled a suicide by hanging.

Throughout the episode the four sang some classic Linkin Park hits like "Numb", "In the End", and "Talking to Myself" as well as song by other artists like Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" and The Red Hot Chili Peppers' "City of Angels".

Between all the singing, Jeong and the band talk about a number of things, including Jeong's desire to change the name to LinKen Park.

"We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled". The episode was filmed on July 14, only six days before Bennington's death, and was aired with the permission of his family.

A tribute show at the Hollywood Bowl on October 27 will feature members of Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Bring Me the Horizon, and System of a Down performing in Bennington's memory.
