Linkin Park has shared the band’s episode of Carpool Karaoke, recorded before the tragic death of frontman Chester Bennington.
Days before Bennington’s death, Linkin Park filmed an episode of Carpool Karaoke, the standalone Apple Music series based on the popular Late Late Show segment.
It wasn’t entirely clear whether the session would be released, with Carpool Karaoke creator James Corden saying the choice was up to Bennington’s family. Apparently they gave the okay, and today LP released the episode, which is dedicated to Bennington’s memory, as a free stream on Facebook. Watch the clip below.
The ride is hosted by comedian and actor Ken Jeong, a self-professed Linkin Park fanatic. They sang OutKast, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith, as well as their own “Numb,” “In the End,” and “Talking to Myself.”
On the surface, it’s the usual Carpool antics: a little of OutKast’s “Hey Ya,” Linkin Park classics “Numb” and “In the End,” a dance session, and some regular karaoke with a woman Jeong pulls off the sidewalk. Bennington appears to be in good spirits and talks about his kids, which makes his passing even more upsetting.
