Battle of the Ages: Colbert vs. The Decemberists

Sorry for the late reminder, but the Best Thing Ever is happening on The Colbert Report tonight: Stephen Colbert will battle Chris Funk of the a guitar solo contest.

They've been trading volleys for a while now over a viewer-generated video challenge, and tonight will settle their dispute for once and for all. I, for one, am completely torn on whom to root for. One of my favorite bands, one of my favorite TV'll be tough. See it for yourself tonight on Comedy Central at 11:30! (And a mad shoutout to JS for reminding me that this soon-to-be-legendary event is happening tonight.)

UPDATE: Video! Below is Stephen's performance. Go here for Chris Funk's, and here for the final verdict.
