Watch Chester Bennington Sing Song About Unicorns and Lollipops Backstage Before Linkin Park Show
What does a band do just minutes before stepping out onstage in front of thousands of adoring fans? Everyone certainly has their own way of getting into the proper frame of mind to perform and Linkin Park have shared one of their favorite pre-show moments where Chester Bennington sings a song about unicorns and lollipops, strumming away on an acoustic guitar (seen below).
As the band still reels from the tragic death of their singer, they're "cherishing all the times Chester made us laugh," as stated in the tweet. Here, we see Bennington goofing around with just three minutes until show time. There isn't much to this catchy but silly song as he croons, "I like lollipops and you like unicorns, oh yeah / unicorns and lollipops, unicorns and lollipops oh yeah..." After he lays the acoustic to rest, the singer and Joe Hahn engage in a rap-like back and forth, spitting out more words about life's sweeter and more fantastic subject matters.
Linkin Park will celebrate the life of Chester Bennington with a special tribute show on Oct. 27 in Los Angeles. Avenged Sevenfold‘s M. Shadows and Synyster Gates, Korn‘s Jonathan Davis, System of a Down‘s Daron Malakian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan, the members of Blink-182, Bring Me the Horizon‘s Oli Sykes, Yellowcard’s Ryan Key, Machine Gun Kelly and Kiiara have all signed on to take part in the momentous concert in addition to all surviving members of Linkin Park, who will hit the stage for the first time since Bennington's death.
