With the blessing of their late singer’s family, Linkin Park have released their episode of Carpool Karaoke. The band participated in the series with Ken Jeong up front with Chester Bennington driving and Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn in the backseat as they taped on July 14. The crew performed their tracks “Numb,” “In the End,” and “Talking to Myself,” along with singing to songs by OutKast, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Aerosmith.

It’s damn nice to see Chester smiling and playing around thanks to Ken Jeong’s antics.

Less than a week after recording their episode for Apple Music, LP frontman Chester Bennington died by suicide. The episode is dedicated in his memory; see it above.

The pseudo-Rap Rockers Linkin Park played a solid live rendition at last night’s (11/18/12) 2012 American Music Awards.

Linkin Park were the only Rock band to play the award show, which was heavy on the Pop acts like Pitbull, Justin Bieber, Ke$ha and a ridiculously cheesy performance of “Gangnam Style” by PSY with special guest MC Hammer.

The only other performance worth a watch would be Stevie Wonder’s Tribute To Dick Clark.
