It’s no lie that both Vampire Weekend and The Black Keys have both had stellar 2010s. As a result, they’re up for a bunch of awards, including Best Alternative Album at the Grammys.

In order to sway to official vote of last year’s Best Comedy Album Grammy winner Stephen Colbert, Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend and Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney of The Black Keys appeared on Colbert’s show. They had a “sellout-off” in which the band that whored out the most music would win. The resulting bit is hilarious; you have to check it out.
