Linkin Park has decided to share their episode of “Carpool Karaoke”, shot just days before Chester Bennington’s death, to their Facebook page and to Apple Music Thursday morning.
The band filmed their segment of the popular series with Bennington six days before he took his life.
News of the “Karaoke” episode broke shortly after Bennington’s death, “We will approach in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however, they would like it to be handled,” producer James Corden said at the time.
“With the blessing of Chester’s family and his bandmates, we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester,” the screen reads at the beginning of the segment.
Bennington and his Linkin Park bandmates, Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn, along with actor/comedian Ken Jeong can be heard singing jams like OutKast’s “Hey Ya,” Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under the Bridge,” and Park classics like “Numb” and “In the End” in the brand new episode.
“Carpool Karaoke” usually only streams on Apple Music, a paid subscription service, but Linkin Park wanted all of Bennington’s fans to see this episode for free.
