Song of the Day: “Rip This Joint”

Here’s one reason to stay up late (or set the TiVo): “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” has started a week of special performances devoted to celebrating the Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street.  Last night,  Green Day detonated a revved-up version of “Rip This Joint,” and the great Taj Mahal joined house band the Roots for the gospely  “Shine a Light.”  Other guests will perform more songs from Exile during the week, including Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban and Phish, and Fallon promises some surprises.

The Stones salute culminates Friday with the premiere of the documentary “Stones in Exile” during Fallon’s show. The deluxe reissue of Exile On Main Street is due in stores next Tuesday.

  1. Aack. The video is no longer available. Jimmy Fallon has a great idea there, though.

    Forcing the video off of YouTube is typical Big Media (BM) short-sightedness. They should be begging people to post it.

    You can still see it at Fallon’s website here: http://www.latenightwithjimmyfallon.com/
