Weird Al Plays Polka With The Roots On Fallon (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Two of the music and comedy industries' biggest darlings came together Monday night: Weird Al Yankovic and hip-hop legends/"Late Night" house band The Roots.

The best part about Weird Al & The Roots (aside from that name sounding like a 50s doo-wop band) is how they can combine their polar opposite sounds. On Monday posted an audio track of Al covering Madvillain's "Accordian" with The Roots that got a lot of attention.

And in the web exclusive below, you can hear a completely different collaboration in "Beer Barrell Polka." It may not be as smooth as "Accordian," but it's definitely entertaining.
