Chester Bennington's 'Carpool Karaoke' Episode Airs Three Months After His Death

Chester Bennington's 'Carpool Karaoke' Episode Airs Three Months After 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.

Linkin Park also shared the video on its Facebook page.

Today, Linkin Park have shared the episode, which features actor and comedian Ken Jeong. What follows is a fun and amusing journey as the group sings along to favorites from Linkin Park (naturally), Red Hot Chili Peppers, and more.

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.

The group then descends into song, singing to Outkast's "Hey Ya", which sees Bennington dancing around in his seat and having a good time as they sing. They also dedicate the video "to the memory of Chester". One of my kids loves sports, great, my daughters, they love music, they want to learn how to play instruments.

The body of Bennington, a 41-year-old father of six, was found on July 20 by his housekeeper in his home in Palos Verdes Estates. When he was asked if he wanted his kids to pursue music, Bennington said, "For me, I just want my kids to find something they're passionate about". The cause of death was established by the L.A. County Coroner's office to be suicide by hanging. Bennington had recorded the episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke with his bandmates and Community star Ken Jeong one week earlier.

Bennington's band will be hosting a benefit concert in his memory on October 27 at the Hollywood Bowl in California.
