Linkin Park Filmed A ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Episode 6 Days Before Chester Bennington’s Suicide


Apple Music

Just six days before the tragic suicide of Chester Bennington, he and his band Linkin Park filmed an episode of Carpool Karaoke with actor Ken Jeong. And yes, it’s sad as you’d imagine.

The 23-minute episodes shows the band —Bennington, Mike Shinoda, and Joe Hahn — singing along with hilarious The Hangover actor Ken Jeong.

Some of the hits that the group sings are OutKast’s “Hey Ya,” Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under the Bridge,” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Sweet Home Alabama,” and Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing”, along with Linkin Park’s own hits “Numb,” “In the End,” and “Talking to Myself.”

Just banger after banger, really.

Truly difficult to wrap your head around the fact that this is the demeanor of a man less than a week away from ending his own life. Depression is a scary thing.

Rest in peace, Chester. You were a huge part of rock music for us millennials and we’ll never forget you for it.

Fun day with @kenjeong @carpoolkaraoke @applemusic – stay tuned.
