Linkin Park and Ken Jeong on Carpool Karaoke The Series

Chester Bennington taped an episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series, just six days before he committed suicide at age 41.

The video, which was shared on their Facebook page and Apple Music late on Thursday (Oct 12), comes nearly three months after Bennington's death.

James Corden and the rest of the Carpool Karaoke staff got permission from Linkin Park and Bennington's family to air the episode.

The episode opens with Jeong joking that he wanted to join the group, as Bennington sat next to him in the driver's seat and the band's Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn sat in the back.

Bennington was found hanging in an upstairs area of his home in the Palos Verdes Estates neighborhood of Los Angeles on July 20.

At one point, the singer tries to teach Jeong, a comedian, how to "sring" - scream-sing - a sound that became a trademark for the band.

It also sees a smiling Bennington join in with renditions of songs by Aerosmith, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. It just goes to show us, once again, that someone being outwardly happy doesn't mean they are not at risk for suicide.

The band have recently been sharing heartfelt footage of Chester Bennington, reflecting on some of their favorite memories they share as a band.

One wrote: "Thank you so much guys... for posting this".

Linkin Park will reportedly do a tribute concert for their band mate in late October - and Blink 182, System Of A Down, Bring Me The Horizon and KoRn are all speculated to perform.

The video was released on Thursday with the blessing of Bennington's family and bandmates.

Bennington is survived by wife Talinda and six children: Jaime, Isiah, Draven Sebastian, Tyler Lee, and twin daughters Lily, and Lila.
