The Decemberists performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night to promote their latest album "What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World."

However, prior to playing "Make You Better" from the new record, the band performed what Kimmel described as an "entire album of real YouTube comments, gloriously set to music." The Decemberists sang about everything from cute pandas, Kim Kardashian and a 2005 commencement speech at MIT. Watch below:
