Jimmy Fallon's Neil Young impression is classic. It's even better when he does it with the real Neil Young, while sitting on a tree stump, and singing about time travel and the apocalypse. "We're two Neil Youngs sitting on a tree stump/ Used to be a tree trunk/ but look what we've done/ Said the father to the son," the pair sang and strummed while wearing matching jeans, buckskin jackets and fedoras on Tuesday nights' Tonight Show.

The original cautionary tale about environmental degradation had lyrics involving a Terminator-like time travel scenario in which real Neil came back from the future to "warn your ass." The bizarre mirror-image homage took place in a fog-enshrouded bog with frolicking squirrels and croaking frogs and marked the second time Young has visited the Tonight Show to join in on Fallon's dead-on impression.

Young is currently on a world tour in support of his live album, Earth, which features a mix of recent and classic tunes and animals sounds Young recorded in his backyard.
