Watch Metallica play ‘Enter Sandman’ with toy instruments

Metallica’s new album is set to hit stores in less than 24 hours,but like any hardworking band, they are currently in the midst of doing their publicity rounds. On Wednesday (Nov. 16), the iconic rock band headed over to Jimmy Fallon’s late night show on NBC to promote their tenth studio album. During their time there, they joined forces with house band, The Roots, to perform a “different” version of their famous song, “Enter Sandman.”

Instead of using real instruments, the band was given toy instrument which could be found at any elementary school. Armed with kazoos, toy drums, xylophone, and a baby guitar, the two groups, as well as Fallon covered the song. It’s also a good time to point out how the members of The Roots, and Fallon, are wearing Metallica shirts while drummer Lars Ulrich is wearing a The Roots shirt and vocalist James Hetfield is rocking a “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” shirt. Watch the funny clip below.

Metallica’s tenth studio album Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is set to be released this Friday, Nov. 18. Hardwired…To Self-Destruct is the follow-up to  2008’s Death Magnetic. Between the eight-year gap, the band released Lulu, their collaborative record with Lou Reed as well as an EP titled Beyond Magnetic in 2011.

In anticipation of the new record’s release, the band revealed that they would be releasing a string of music videos to give a “sneak peek” at every track on it. Earlier in the day, the band released the music video for “Spit Out the Bone.” Watch that clip here.

Get Some “Sexual Healing” from Jimmy Fallon and Steve Carell


Jimmy Fallon and his Ragtime Gals are back again and this time, the barbershop quartet gave viewers their own cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

But the best part of the cover? Three seconds into the song, Steven Carell pops out of nowhere to joining forces with the already singing quartet which would now make them a quintet, right?

Anyways, check out the video below.

The clean-cut barbershop group give a nice clean to it, almost making you forget how the song is about “sexual healing”; almost.

Jimmy Fallon Fills in for Bono on “Desire”


Jimmy Fallon is one hell of a good sport and we mean that. This week on his late night show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, U2 were supposed to take the stage as the house band for the full week.

Due to an injury that Bono obtained during the weekend in a freak bicycle accident in Central Park which required surgery, the band had to pull out of their duties leaving the late night program performer-less.

Insert Fallon and The Roots.

Instead of just leaving it at that, a week without musical guest, Fallon and The Roots decided to give an unexpected performance of them covering “Desire.”

The best part of the performance? Fallon came out on stage decked out like Bono in both clothing and eyewear.

Check out the video from the show last night below.

As of now, The Tonight Show has not announced what they will do for musical guests this week since U2 were booked until Friday and one can’t exactly go from the operating room to the stage in less than a day.

Considering Fallon started out the week like this, we’re going to assume that he (and everyone who works on the show) might have something up their sleeve.

Sting Covers Classic Ringtones on ‘Jimmy Fallon’


Ever wanted to know what it would sound like when someone covers classic ringtone?

Well, even if you never did, Jimmy Fallon managed to get Sting to cover classic ringtones in his own personal way (Stingtones) during the signer’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night.

As if the Stingtones weren’t enough, he went on to record a personal outgoing message for an audience member, all to the tune of “Message in a Bottle.” We know there’s pun in there, but we’ll leave it up to you.

Check out the video below.

Maybe Sting should get a side job as a ringtone creator; we’re sure he’ll be really good at it.

Last week, Sting had been named as one of 15 nominees for up for a chance to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This will be Sting’s first time up for a nomination by himself; he was previously inducted to the Hall of Fame as part of The Police.

5 Seconds of Summer Perform Fall Inspired Parodies of blink-182, Jay-Z


5 Seconds of Summer have quickly become one of those bands that you either like or you don’t, much like their tour mates One Direction.

But, while you might think they are the “worst band in the world” at the moment and their music makes you “want to kill yourself,” they don’t seem to mind since they are probably laughing their way to the bank at the moment. (At least they don’t steal other people’s music and pass it off as their own.)

During their appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, the Australian boys performed parodies of several songs, replacing the original lyrics with lyrics about everyone’s favorite season, Fall. Much thanks should go to Twitters user who contributed to the lyrics of the songs.

Check out the video below as they transform songs like blink-182’s “All the Small Things,” Jay-Z’s “99 Problems,” Nelly’s “Hot in Here,” and even their own hit, “She Looks So Perfect.” Got to have a sense of humor if you’re going to be some people’s latest punching bag.

Check out the video below.

While on the show, they also performed their new single, “Good Girls” from their self-titled debut album which was released back in July.

‘Tonight Show’ Goes ‘Footloose’


How do you celebrate the 30th anniversary of your hit film?

Simple. Recreated the iconic scene from it and that’s exactly what Kevin Bacon did during The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

This year marked the 30th anniversary of Kevin Bacon’s Footloose, the hit film about a Chicago boy moving to a small town where dancing and rock music had been prohibited and of course his arrival marks the beginning of the rebellion against the town’s authority on that.

Bacon who currently stars on FOX’s The Following, performed the dance as his entrance on Fallon’s show Friday and to say that the 55-year-old actor still has it, is an understatement. Check out the video as the late night show becomes that uptight town.
