Stephen Colbert, Jack White In '2011: A Rock Odyssey' (VIDEO)

Some of the most transcendent "Colbert Report" moments have come when the host is just let loose to antagonize someone who may or may not be in on the joke. In this week's series "2011: A Rock Odyssey," Jack White clearly is party to the gag, but his deadpan reactions to Colbert make for a treasure trove of awkward hilarity.

In this series, Colbert seeks White's help in recording a sure-to-win-a-Grammy record, which culminates in a performance of his new song with White proteges, The Black Belles. Below we present all three-parts, as well as the final concert. Join us for Colbert's remarkable, ridiculous, hard-rocking journey.
