Watch Linkin Park's 'Carpool Karaoke' with Chester Bennington

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

Bennington, Mike Shinoda, and Joe Hahn filmed their ride through Los Angeles with comedian Ken Jeong, a self-professed Linkin Park fanatic.

Later this month, Linkin Park will hold a memorial concert at the Hollywood Bowl, where the group was already scheduled to perform before the death of lead singer and frontman Chester Bennington in July.

The band is now streaming the episode, which is dedicated to Bennington, on their Facebook page.

At the start of the video, Jeong jokes that he had a dream he joined the band and renamed it "LinKEN Park". "But when we talk about this and we're focusing on the show, it's really about, like we say, celebrating life". His cause of death was ruled a suicide by hanging.

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. They kicked it off with OutKast's "Hey Ya", before moving on to Linkin Park's "Numb" and "In the End", as well as the Red Hot Chili Peppers classic "Under the Bridge".

When Jeong asked questions to try to connect with the band more, and Bennington shared that he once worked as a leaf blower, making $4 an hour and only got paid for three and a half hours of work.

Carpool Karaoke executive producer and Late Late Show host James Corden told the Associated Press: "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".
