It's been nearly three months since the news that Linkin Park's Chester Bennington died by suicide, and the tributes and comments about the lead singer are still pouring in.

Before the episode was released, Bennington's family was consulted to make sure they were okay with the video.

The video kicks off with Bennington, Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn along with actor Ken Jeong in a vehicle getting ready to embark on their musical ride.

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

"We will approach it in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled". In the opening moments, Jeong jokes with the group about joining them, and Bennington laughed that they "would see", about letting him join.

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".

"I just want my kids to find something that they're passionate about", Bennington said.

"Everyone at home watching should all sing along", Bennington says at the end.

After the untimely death of front man Chester Bennington earlier this year, Linkin Park have shared a photo of their first rehearsal back together.

The sold-out tribute concert will take place on October 27 at Hollywood Bowl in California.
