Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and comedian Will Ferrell challenged each other to a drum-off on Thursday’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, vying for the title of “greatest drummer” and supporting their favorite charities.

Check out the video below, with a surprise appearance by RHCP performing Blue Oyster Cult’s “Don’t Fear the Reaper,” in a tribute to Ferrell’s April 2000 Saturday Night Live sketch with Christopher Walken.
