Las Vegas natives the Killers and Jimmy Kimmel teamed up to create a new holiday song and character, “Joel, the Lump of Coal,” and it ended up bringing a gift to Kimmel: his Billboard chart debut. The folky track bows at No. 27 on Billboard’s Hot Rock Songs chart with 11,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen Music.
Since 2006, the alt-rock band has recorded a holiday song for Bono’s (RED) Campaign every year to coincide with World AIDS Day. This year’s track, which Kimmel called “the greatest holiday song ever recorded by non-chipmunks,” premiered on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Dec. 1. All proceeds from the song will be donated to the Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS.
