Guitar Duel: Jack Black vs. Conan O'Brien

Jack Black is rockin’ the airwaves this week: first he jams with Jimmy Fallon on a performance of “Peace On Earth/Little Drummer Boy,” something I described visually as “Blue Man Group meets A Clockwork Orange.”

Watch that video here.

Wednesday night, Black was on Conan to talk about his new movie, “Gulliver’s Travels,” and things were going along peacefully until music entered the discussion.

At about the 6:30 mark in the following video, Jack seemed surprised to find out that Conan had a band and had done a tour this year, even after the two met up at Bonnaroo in June.

“I think of your band as more of a hobby, and less like a passion," Black told Conan, adding, "I rock way, way, way harder than you."

Before things got physical, Andy Richter jumped in and suggested the two settle things with a guitar showdown.
