The song at the end is worth it.
I spent the first part of this clip thinking, "Hey, this show has an American Indian bit character and the joke about him is that he's the frontman of an amateur band that plays music inappropriate to the venue? That's actually not an offensive stereotype!"
Then 1:20 rolls around and it turns out he's the former owner of a casino who has fallen on hard times. Yay.
The real joke about John Redcorn, at least in the early seasons, was that he had been having an affair with Dale's wife for years.
Dale, the huge conspiracy theorist, was too dense to realize it; despite the fact that Dales's son looked like a mini John Redcorn and everyone in town knew about it.

Not quite as good as the Wilburys, but a pretty decent collaboration project for Tom Petty's standards.
The last season was about wrapping up the various ancillary plotlines explored in the previous eight seasons.
John Redcorn became a native American Raffi, Lucky started a honky tonk band, Dale Gribble was actually recognized as a good father and Khan was exposed as bipolar.
And then the actress who played Luanne died and cut off any likelihood of Fox resurrecting it for a drag-on season after they finished the plot arcs.
