In memory of frontman Chester Bennington, Linkin Park has released an episode of James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke that was filmed just a week before the singer’s untimely death in July.

The band uploaded the full 22-minute episode—which also stars The Hangover‘s Ken Jeong—to its Facebook page Thursday. It also linked to the One More Light Fund, an organization the group formed after Bennington’s death as a branch of his Music For Relief philanthropy efforts.

The episode shows Bennington as he’d likely want to be remembered: goofing off and laughing about music with his friends. The car full of dudes sings songs like Outkast’s “Hey Ya!” and the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Under The Bridge” at the top of their lungs as Bennington steers them through Los Angeles. A karaoke party bus may or may not appear at some point.

After the episode was posted, singer Mike Shinoda and Jeong showed each other some love on Twitter.

At the end of the episode, the band directed fans hoping to donate money toward suicide prevention in Bennington’s honor to One More Light.
