On last night's (Sept. 9) episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, legendary alternative rock band the Replacements made their first television appearance in over 25 years, performing their classic song "Alex Chilton" from their 1987 album Pleased To Meet Me. It's also the band's first time back to 30 Rockefeller Plaza after being banned from Saturday Night Live after a characteristically drunk and sloppy performance on that show back in 1986. You can check out their Tonight Show performance right here, which sounds pretty sober, but still great:

Just in case you're curious, here's the Replacements' 1986 performance of "Kiss Me On The Bus" on Saturday Night Live that got them banned from the show. It's actually pretty great, and makes you wonder what got Lorne Michaels so angry:
