Friend of Zulkey.com Rob Kutner has a pretty cool career. By day, he writes for "Conan," but one of his other projects is writing and producing funny songs with funny people for a good cause. In 2012, he released "It's OK...To Do Stuff." Now he and his collaborators, the Levinson Brothers, are back with "2776," which features 28 tracks by over 80 different artists, including Will Forte, Aubrey Plaza, Reggie Watts, Aimee Mann, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Margaret Cho, Paul F. Tompkins, Alex Trebek, and Ed Helms singing about America's past, present, and future. Check out some delightful videos below, and if you like what you see/hear, buy the whole album! Best of all, the proceeds benefit OneKid OneWorld, a charity that provides desks, books, teachers' salaries, classrooms, and even solar power technology so students can study at night for primary and secondary school-aged kids in impoverished communities throughout Kenya and El Salvador.
