Jimmy Fallon to Michele Bachmann: Sorry About That Intro Music ...

by at . Comments

Jimmy Fallon, the host of NBC's Late Night, issued an apology to GOP Presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann over a song played during her visit to the program.

"I'm honored that @MicheleBachmann was on our show and I'm so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back," a Tweet from Fallon's account said.

As Bachmann strode on to the stage, the program's band, led by Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, played a snippet of a 1985 Fishbone song called ... "Lyin' Ass Bitch."

The tune starts with a distinctive "la la la la la la la la la" refrain, the only words that were audible before a smiling, waving Bachmann sat down for her interview.

The song itself, which is about a relationship gone wrong, isn't political, and it's not clear if it was even selected with the Minnesota Congresswoman in mind.

In any case, it repeats the refrain "Lyin' Ass Bitch" about a dozen times, and a lot of people weren't happy. Michele's campaign had no immediate comment.
