Chester Bennington: Carpool Karaoke and Mercedes pays homage

Linkin Park

Linkin Park released their Carpool Karaoke video which they filmed less than a week before the band's frontman, Chester Bennington's death. On July 20, the band's lead singer, Chester Bennington, was found dead by suicide.

The clip is preceded by a note that advises viewers, "With the blessing of Chester's family and his bandmates, we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester".

Sat in the driver's seat, Bennington challenges Jeong to prove himself as a worthy addition to the rock band. In the video, Bennington can be seen laughing and singing along with his band mates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, and guest Ken Jeong.

The band released the twenty minute video last night on their Facebook page.

The quartet go on to perform renditions of Outkast's Hey Ya and Red Hot Chilli Peppers' Under The Bridge, as well as Linkin Park's Numb, In The End and Talking To Myself. "This is probably the greatest day of my life right now". She also asked fans to donate to the One More Light Fund created in his honor.

Meanwhile, Ken Jeong tweeted that he was "in shock and heartbroken".

Linkin Park is putting on a benefit concert at the Hollywood Bowl on 27 October called Linkin Park and Friends Celebrate Life in honour of Chester Bennington.
