The Jimmy Fallon-Brian Williams bromance continued on NBC’s Rock Center last night as Fallon sat down with the newsman for a primetime interview. The conversation almost immediately turned to the recent controversy surrounding the Roots, Late Night’s house band, playing an offensive song when GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann appeared on the show last month. The song, “Lyin’ Ass Bitch” by Fishbone, prompted an outcry from the Bachmann campaign and an apology from Fallon, NBC, and band leader ?uestlove. (Not a typo, it’s pronounced Questlove). Fallon was uncharacteristically somber about the issue and admitted that he was “embarrassed by that. I wanted it to go away.” He also tweeted that he hopes Bachmann will come back to the show soon. So, IF she ever comes back, what song should they play? Perhaps “Lyin’ Ass Bitch is too much. What about a nod to the infamous Newsweek cover and play “Hungry Eyes?” Or “Stupid Girl” by Garbage? Or maybe a reference to her creationist beliefs by playing something by “Dinosaur Jr? Maybe something by The Queers? The video of Fallon’s appearance is below.
