With Conan O'Brien's "Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television" tour in full swing, videos from the promised "night of music, comedy, hugging, and the occasional awkward silence" have been popping up on the Internet the past couple weeks. Luckily for Team Coco fans, there's no shortage of bizarre and hilarious sketches (including this awesome video of him breaking it down at the Oregon show).

Perhaps most entertaining, though, is the slew of song covers Conan and his friends have put together—tackling everyone from Radiohead to Gloria Gaynor to Five for Fighting—which was part of a surprise appearance by Jim Carrey at Saturday's show in Los Angeles. A roundup of the five best covers from the tour, below:

"Superman (It's Not Easy)," Five For Fighting


"I Will Survive," Gloria Gaynor


"Creep," Radiohead



"Baba O'Reilly," The Who, performed by Eddie Vedder


"Oh Coco," John Lennon's "Oh Yoko," reinterpreted by Eddie Vedder
