Kicking things off with a celebratory anthem for the moustache, Newmarket, ON's the Elwins dropped a video for "Help a Bro Out (M-O-V-E-M-B-E-R)," featuring some encouraging words and excellent facial hair.
If that wasn't delightful enough, the Muppets will definitely have you smiling -- or groaning -- as Jim Henson's puppet creations cover the classic Nirvana track "Smells Like Teen Spirit." And Childish Gambino may no longer need to be introduced as Donald Glover's hip-hop alter ego after dropping Camp last week, but nevertheless he appeared on Conan to promote the new album with a performance of "Heartbeat." He made the track a little more TV-friendly by ending it with, um, "You give really adequate handjobs and it's awesome."
Red Hot Chili Peppers released a new animated video for "Monarchy of Roses," complete with the artwork of Raymond Pettibon, while Timber Timbre also shared an animated clip for their track "Swamp Magic," which revolves around, kind of unsurprisingly, a magical swamp.
