Linkin Park have shared some fun, intimate backstage footage of their late frontman Chester Bennington jamming on his acoustic guitar backstage. His brief improvised performance doesn't include any of the band's hits; Instead of "Numb" or "Faint," Bennington opts for an atypically goofy song that's more or less a celebration of all things cutesy. "I like lollipops and you like unicorns, oh yeah," croons the singer, as drummer Rob Bourdon taps out a simple beat. Eventually, Bennington goes full Shinoda, delivering a rap performance as his bandmates — and indeed, the "MC" himself — try hard not to break down laughing. Check out the footage below.
Bennington's amusing "Lollipops and Unicorns" clip arrives amidst Linkin Park's preparations for next month's tribute concert in honor of Bennington. The band's surviving members will deliver their first onstage performance since the frontman committed suicide last July, joined by a slew of special guests. M. Shadows and Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold); Daron Malakian, John Dolmayan and Shavo Odadjian (System of a Down); Blink-182; Jonathan Davis (Korn); Oliver Sykes (Bring Me the Horizon); William Ryan Key (Yellowcard); and Machine Gun Kelly have all been confirmed for October 27th's concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Proceeds from the show will benefit Music for Relief's One More Light Fund.
