Linkin Park star in posthumous Carpool Karaoke

Chester Bennington

Linkin Park has released the "Carpool Karaoke" video they recorded for James Corden just days before frontman Chester Bennington took his own life. On July 20, the band's lead singer, Chester Bennington, was found dead by suicide.

A happy looking Chester is seen sitting up front in the vehicle 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 band, who taped the episode along with actor Ken Jeong, posted the video on their official Facebook page. "This is probably the greatest day of my life right now".

Along with pulling over to dance and jumping in a party bus, they sing hit like OutKast's "Hey Ya", Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge", and Linkin Park classics "Numb" and "In the End".

The episode was dedicated in Bennington's memory and was released with the blessing of his family and Linkin Park band mates. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Music for Relief's One More Light fund, a charity established in the wake of Bennington's tragic passing.

At the moment, Linkin Park is getting ready to perform a tribute concert to Chester in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl on 27 October with other artists in the line up such as Blink 182.
