Linkin Park's Carpool Karaoke Is a Bittersweet Tribute

Chester Bennington

WATCH: Chester Bennington's carpool karaoke released by Linkin Park

Nearly three months after Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington took his life, the band has released an episode of Carpool Karaoke featuring three members of the band. The video sees Chester behind the wheel with Ken in the passenger seat and band members Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn in the back.

The episode was filmed on July 14, just days before Bennigton's death. But far from being a joyful moment from the rock singer, it just marks the ideal example of how you can never tell what depression looks like. "I love it!" Bennington said to Jeong, when he suggested a band name change.

Bennington died on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his late friend Chris Cornell, the lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, who killed himself in May this year. Jeong takes the lesson to heart and successfully scream-sings.

"With the blessing of Chester's family and his bandmates, we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester", a message at the beginning of the video, which was posted on the band's official Facebook page and Apple Music, reads.

It's a fun 20 minutes of radio singing, with Bennington mentioning at one point, "This is probably the greatest day of my life".

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