Linkin Park have shared the complete episode of Carpool Karaoke that they filmed with comedian Ken Jeong just days before lead singer Chester Bennington's tragic death in July.

Chester died by suicide at the age of 41 on July 20, and it emerged a few days later that the band had been filming for the Apple Music spin-off series of the popular James Corden segment in the days leading up to his death.

In August, Corden revealed that they were leaving the choice of whether the episode would be aired in the hands of Chester's family and those who were involved in the episode, and today (October 12) Linkin Park shared the episode in full on their Facebook page, dedicating it to Chester's memory.

"With the blessing of Chester's family and his bandmates, we share this episode and dedicate it to the memory of Chester," a title card read before the episode began. "This was taped July 14, 2017."

The full 20-minute episode is airing for free on Facebook, rather than via the paid-for Apple Music service the rest of the series uses.

The clip sees the group embracing their inner boy band with a dance routine on the pavement, as well as singing along to tracks including 'Hey Ya' by Outkast, 'Under the Bridge' by Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Linkin Park classics 'In the End' and 'Numb'.

Chester's wife Talinda Bennington has previously shared a video of the singer just 36 hours before he died, in which he seems to be laughing and playing games with family and friends, to show others that depression doesn't necessarily have a recognisable "face or a mood".

Linkin Park have now established the One More Light Fund to honour Chester, with the band and Talinda asking fans to visit musicforrelief.org if they would like to donate a gift in Chester's memory.

The band will also honour the singer with a special one-off concert later this month at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, and will be donating their fees from the event to Music for Relief's One More Light Fund.
