Before Chad Smith and Will Ferrell

This past week was the long awaited drum-off between must-have-been-separated-at-birth lookalikes Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith versus actor/comedian Will Ferrell.

Their drum-off and the recent lip sync competitions featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Rudd and Emma Stone are great examples of how hip The Tonight Show has become, thanks to former Saturday Night Live alum Jimmy Fallon.

However, before there was ever Chad versus Will, there was another famous drum-off we older kids may have forgotten. The drum battle was between legends, Animal of Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem versus the late jazz great, Buddy Rich.

Animal and Buddy had their drum battle during Buddy's guest appearance on The Muppet Show in 1980. See for yourself:

And in case you'd missed it, here's Chadwick versus William:
