    Joel. Coal. Jimmy. Killers.

    Late night host Jimmy Kimmel grew up in Las Vegas -- an unusual distinction which he shares with the band The Killers.

    Every year, since 2006, The Killers write and record a special Christmas song to support a very good charity — the RED campaign. They usually collaborate on these annual songs, with artists such as the band Dawes, Neil Tennant and Elton John.

    Needless to say, Mr. Kimmel was both flattered and confused when the band asked him to be a part of their annual tradition. Kimmel and the band got together, kicked some ideas around and the result, Jimmy believes, is what may very well be the greatest holiday song ever recorded by non-Chipmunks.

    Listen to "Joel, the Lump of Coal" by The Killers and Jimmy Kimmel, below.



    Download it at iTunes, as it benefits the RED campaign.

    Is this your new fave holiday track? It's ours!
