Linkin Park have shared their episode of "Carpool Karaoke" featuring late singer Chester Bennington and actor Ken Jeong. The 24-minute clip has the band performing several songs alongside Jeong, including Outkast's "Hey Ya" and other Linkin Park favorites. Watch the episode below.
With Bennington behind the wheel, he is joined by bandmates Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn while Jeong rides shotgun. The quartet jokes about Jeong joining the band and renaming their project Linken Park, with Jeong mulling over the idea of changing his name to Ken Park. Jeong later jokes about taking Shinoda's place in the group before launching into the fun rendition of "Hey Ya."
The foursome then tackles Linkin Park's hit 2003 song "Numb" before Jeong asks Bennington how he formed his trademark scream. The late singer gives a look into his craft saying, "one day we're in the studio working on a song and Mike was just like, 'you think you just scream like this...'" before he belts out his signature growl. Jeong then attempts to scream as his three fellow passengers laugh along. "This is probably the best day of my life," Bennington says.
Linkin Park's "In the End" is the next song on the karaoke list. Following Jeong's take on the track, he presents a game to the band called "Scream or Whisper Scream," in which Bennington has to let out a "heavy metal scream" if he likes something Jeong mentions. If not, he's to perform a "super lame whisper." The topics involve street tacos (a heavy "yeah" from Bennington), getting a haircut (a quiet "yeah" from Shinoda), balloon animals (Hahn responds with a heavy yell) and "Dungeons and Dragons," to name a few.
The group goes into "Talking By Myself" from LP's 2017 release One More Light. Following an impromptu dance-off in the middle of a quiet Los Angeles street they get back in their car and take on "Under the Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. Jeong then has a surprise for his new friends, ditching the car for an upgraded party bus featuring a full-scale karaoke machine and party favors. He joins Shinoda for an emotion rendition of "I Don't Wanna Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith.
The episode aired on Facebook Thursday afternoon on Linkin Park's official page. The remaining members dedicated the taping to Bennington, who committed suicide in his home last July. The group will perform at the Chester Bennington Tribute Show at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl alongside Korn's Jonathan Davis, Blink-182, Avenged Sevenfold and others on Oct. 27.
