The episode of Apple Music'sCarpool Karaoke series that Linkin Park taped less than a week before singer Chester Bennington's death has hit the web, and let's just say Ken Jeong is stoked to be a part of it. Bennington also shares how he came up with his trademark scream, and talks about his kids.

The episode was released with the blessing of Bennington's family and is dedicated in his honor.

"We will navigate it as delicately as possible and just adhere to whatever wishes they would want because I don't think there's any other way we could deal with it, really", the late night host continued.

They kick of proceedings by singing Outkast's Hey Ya before singing their own tracks, including Numb and In The End, before upgrading to a karaoke truck where they sing Aerosmith's I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing.

Bennington, 41, recorded the video on 14 July - six days before he killed himself at his home in Palos Verdes, California. The cause of death was established by the L.A. County Coroner's office to be suicide by hanging.

The video continues with the Hangover actor joking to Bennington that he wanted to join the band (and rename it LinKen Park), with the musician sitting beside him in the driver seat and the band's Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn sat in the back.

According to a report by Entertainment Weekly, Linkin Park will be playing a special one-off concert on October 27 in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl, which will feature special guests.
