Chester Bennington Calls Filming 'Carpool Karaoke' 'Greatest Day Of His Life'

Bennington and the band joined comedian/actor Ken Jeong to film an episode of the Apple Music series before the signer passed away in July.

In August, Corden said that the decision to air the "Carpool Karaoke" episode was up to Bennington's family.


Today, Linkin Park have shared the episode, which features actor and comedian Ken Jeong.

After meeting Jeong, the group, with Bennington behind the wheel, sings along to songs like OutKast's "Hey Ya!", Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing", and the band's own songs "Numb" and "In the End".


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. His death was ruled a suicide by hanging by the Los Angeles County coroner's office. He was also survived by his six children, sons Jaime and Isaiah, with Elka Brand, son Draven Sebastian with ex-wife Samantha Marie Olit, and a son, Tyler Lee, and twin daughters, Lily and Lila, with Bentley.

Linkin Park will be celebrating Chester Bennington's life with a special tribute show later this month.


James Corden, the "Late Late Show" host and executive producer of "Carpool Karaoke" was also behind it. Corden told the Associated Press at the time of Bennington's death that they would handle the episode in whatever manner his family, and the people involved in the show, would like it to be handled. Draven Sebastian Bennington shared a message for Suicide Prevention Week.
