I haven’t seen a more fitting occasion to use this insanely overdone song since the The Devils Rejects. This last episode of Conan’s The Tonight Show got pretty emotional at times (especially with Neil Young’s performance), but it all culminated in one of the greatest television moments of our time. I still think Conan is getting robbed in this deal, but it’s still pretty rad to take the stage with Will Ferrell, Ben Harper, Beck, and that dude from ZZ Top only to rip through “Free Bird” in front of a giant American flag because, let’s be honest, thats what America is all about, folks. Hats off to you Conan, I’m sure this won’t be the last we’ll see from you.
Hit the jump for Neil Young’s Performance of “Long May You Run” from Conan’s final show.
