As Nicki Swift previously reported, Bennington passed away on July 20, 2017 of an apparent suicide.

The band is now streaming the episode, which is dedicated to Bennington, on their Facebook page.

The video was released with the blessing of his family, and features himself and band mates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn being hosted by comedian Ken Jeong. They then bring in music from other artists, like "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers, "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, and "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith. "But when we talk about this and we're focusing on the show, it's really about, like we say, celebrating life".

In August, Corden said that the decision to air the "Carpool Karaoke" episode was up to Bennington's family.

After the untimely death of front man Chester Bennington earlier this year, Linkin Park have shared a photo of their first rehearsal back together.

Bennington died July 20th of a suicide by hanging.

The band also directed viewers to the One More Light fund, created in Bennington's memory.

The video shows "LinKen Park" singing a number of Linkin Park hits including Numb, In The End and Talking To Myself as they drive through Los Angeles. In the opening moments, Jeong jokes with the group about joining them, and Bennington laughed that they "would see", about letting him join. Outside of the USA, please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of resources.
