J Mascis may have turned down Nirvana back in the day, but no one says “no” to The Roots. On last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the Dinosaur Jr. axeman sat in with Questlove, Black Thought, and the rest of the all-star collective as they played in and out of commercial breaks and provided the walk-on music for guest Marky Mark Wahlberg. Replay the entire episode below.
As you’ll see at the 7:00 mark, Fallon introduced Mascis and promoted Dinosaur Jr.’s latest album, I Bet on Sky, and thanked him for being on the show, for which Mascis replied, “Alright, thanks a lot.” He’s just the best.
Also watch Mascis and The Roots perform Dinosaur Jr.’s “Just Like Heaven” at the 17:03 mark, discuss his guitar at the 17:25 mark, join The Roots for a cover of Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” (!) at the 21:25 mark, soundtrack Wahlberg’s entrance at the 22:20 mark, and briefly cover Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” at the 36:20 mark. All in all, it was a pretty solid night.
