An episode of "Carpool Karaoke" featuring Linkin Park and frontman Chester Bennington taped just a week before Bennington's death in July is now showing, with his family's blessing, on Apple Music's series.

A happy looking Chester is seen sitting up front in the auto alongside Ken, Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn singing the band's songs Numb, In The End and Talking To Myself, plus covers of Outkast hit Hey Ya!, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama and Aerosmith's I Don't Want to Miss A Thing. The footage was captured on July 14, just six days before the singer's death.


Chester Bennington is seen in an episode of "Carpool Karaoke" starring his band Linkin Park that was recorded less than a week he killed himself.

Bennington appears to be in good spirits throughout the episode and is shown behind the wheel teaching episode host Ken Jeong how to sing in Bennington's signature scream.


The 23-minute long episode, which has been published on Facebook with the permission of Bennington's family, ends with a link to a charitable fund set up by the band in honour of the singer. "You are the best", Bennington said.

As of this writing, the video has already garnered almost 6.5 million views.
