Over two months after the death of lead singer Chester Bennington, Linkin Park has released the band's "Carpool Karaoke" episode with Ken Jeong.

The bittersweet episode, which was taped a week before 41-year-old Bennington committed suicide, opens with Jeong getting into the front seat of the vehicle and asking if he can join the rock band.

That video was finally shared on Thursday with the blessings of Bennington's family and friends, and is 23 minutes of pure joy with comedian Ken Jeong, a big fan of the band.

The foursome belted out the lyrics to Linkin Park's "In The End" and "Talking to Myself" as well as Outkast's "Hey Ya", and Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge".

Bennington had joined Linkin Park in 1999 and the band released their latest album, "One More Light" in May.

"I forgot the words, I'm having so much fun!"

At one point Bennington also tries to teach Jeong how to "scring", or scream sing, his trademark on the band's songs, admitting after the actor successfully pulled it off that it was "the greatest day of his life".

Whether or not the episode would air would be the choice of the late singer's family, Corden said after Bennington's death, which was the result of an apparent suicide on July 20. Whether his kids wished to become musicians or not, he wanted them to follow their passions in life, he said. "Lily is curious, like, 'Daddy how do you write songs?"

Linkin Park will hold a benefit concert in honor of Bennington October 27 in Los Angeles.
