Chester Bennington's Carpool Karaoke episode has been released

Linkin Park's Carpool Karaoke drops online 'dedicated to the memory of Chester Bennington'

Chester Bennington’s last interview has dropped

Only a few days before the death of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington on July 20, the band filmed an episode of James Corden's Carpool Karaoke: The Series.

The episode was released with the blessing of Bennington's family and is dedicated in his honor.

The episode begins with Jeong joining Bennington and fellow band mates singer and songwriter Mike Shinoda and DJ Joe Hahn.

On that day, the band shared an image of themselves and Jeong on the set to Twitter, with a caption to say it had been a fun day with Jeong and to "stay tuned".

They kick of proceedings by singing Outkast's Hey Ya before singing their own tracks, including Numb and In The End, before upgrading to a karaoke truck where they sing Aerosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing.

Before Linkin Park had released the video, Corden, who executive produces the show, told the Associated Press (via People), "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 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. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging by the Los Angeles County coroner's office.

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.
