"Late Night" host Jimmy Fallon has apologized for Monday's so-called spontaneous decision to play Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass B**ch" as the intro song for Monday's guest Michele Bachmann.
The Roots drummer Questlove, whose band plays on the late night program, seemed to hint to his Twitter followers before Republican presidential candidate Bachmann's appearance that "late night devotees" should pay attention. "You love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title," he posted.
After it was revealed that the intro song was the aforementioned Fishbone track, Questlove said in a statement that the performance was tongue-in-cheek and "spur of the moment," and that if he hurt Bachmann's feelings, he felt bad.
Fallon later added his own apology to his guest, after tweeting that Questlove is "grounded."
