WATCH Chester Bennington's Carpool Karaoke, filmed 6 days before death

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.

A happy looking Chester is seen sitting up front in the auto alongside Ken, Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn singing the band's songs Numb, In The End and Talking To Myself, plus covers of Outkast hit Hey Ya!, Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet Home Alabama and Aerosmith's I Don't Want to Miss A Thing.

Sat in the driver's seat, Bennington challenges Jeong to prove himself as a worthy addition to the rock band. "This is probably the greatest day of my life right now".

He was recorded driving around LA with his band mates signing along to several cracking tunes, including Outkast's Hey Ya, Under The Bridge by the Red Hot Chlli Peppers and some of Linkin Parks own hits Numb, In the End, and Talking to Myself. They sang "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd, even roping in a female fan from the street, and Aerosmith's "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing". She also asked fans to donate to the One More Light Fund created in his honor.

They said they released the video, filmed a week before Bennington committed suicide, with the family's blessing. Eventually the lead singer rolled the window down and sang to unsuspecting passersby. Linkin Park posted the video on Facebook Thursday.
