Will Ferrell & Red Hot Chili Peppers' Chad Smith Compete In An Epic Drum-Off On The Tonight Show!

| Filed under: TV NewsWill FerrellJimmy FallonRed Hot Chili PeppersLate Night TV

The gods of Rock and Roll have demanded blood and they will not be denied!

Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith have been in a feud the likes of which haven't been seen since Mozart and Salieri.

Apparently, their feud began when someone on Reddit suggested to Will that he looked like Chad, and then Will said that no, Chad was a character he created.

Gauntlet equals thrown.

Well, on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon the two engaged in a drum-off for one purpose and one purpose only: to publicly shame their rival in front of millions.

Oh, and it was also done for charity, too. And there's also some cowbell.

Ch-ch-check out the two go crazy on the drums (above)!!!

The thing about playing an electric guitar is you need electricity in order to play it!

But there were NO wires coming out of any of the Red Hot Chili Pepper’s instruments during their Super Bowl Halftime Show with Bruno Mars on Sunday!

After all the accusations from fans saying they were faking it, bass player Flea is ready to admit that they were indeed just playing air guitar up there!

He posted an explanation though as to WHY the band didn’t plug in for their big performance.

He’s blaming the NFL! Apparently it was the league that wanted the band to pre-record their musical track and only have Anthony singing live!

In a wordy message on RHCP’s web site, he explained:

Bruno Mars And Red Hot Chili Peppers Score A Touchdown With Their Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Performance! Watch It HERE!

| Filed under: Music MinuteBruno MarsRed Hot Chili PeppersSuper Bowl

Not too bad at all!

Bruno Mars hit the end zone with his stellar Super Bowl XLVIII halftime performance.

Bruno drummed, danced, and crooned his way through his hits Locked Out Of Heaven, Treasure, and Just The Way You Are.

Red Hot Chili Peppers' guest appearance can't even be compared to Destiny's Child 's reunion last year, but their performance of Give It Away did make for a nice 90s throwback moment.

Ch-ch-check out the ultra energetic show (above)!

They've combined two of our favorite things: musicals and sssssparkles! You thought we were going to say 'sports,' didn't you? Ha!

Saturday Night Live kept with their trend this year of cold opens, and this one was Super Bowl themed.

The halftime show got a fancy update, complete with third-time host Melissa McCarthy as Momma Pass!

Honestly, we would be TOTALLY okay if this was a part of the real halftime show! In addition to Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers of course!

Then, for her opening monologue, Melissa and Bobby Moynihan had an aerial battle

Red Hot Chili Peppers Are Joining Bruno Mars At The Super Bowl!

If Bruno Mars wasn’t enough to get you to watch Super Bowl XLVIII, then this will be!

It has been leaked that the Red Hot Chili Peppers are also going to be performing during the halftime show on February 2nd!

The official announcement is expected to happen when the New Orleans Saints play the Seattle Seahawks today.

We are SO hoping that the RHCP wear their trademark c*ck socks, but since the game will be outdoors in New Jersey, we wouldn’t bet on it.

Oh ya, and that whole “television” thing might keep them clothed too. LOLz!

Either way, we can’t wait to see them play with Bruno!
