Stephen Colbert and Henry Rollins Thrash Their Way Through ‘Carol of the Bells’

Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal

It’s been a balmy 63 degrees or so for the past week in New York City, so it’s kind of hard to believe that Christmas is just over a week away. Perhaps that’s why Stephen Colbert and Black Flag’s Henry Rollins joined forces to help get the Late Show’s home city into the Christmas spirit last night when they performed a tonally inconsistent version of “Carol of the Bells.” Colbert’s hushed verses were fairly true to the original, but Rollins’ contribution was a little more, shall we say, hardcore. Watch “A Very Rollins Christmas” below.
