Michele Bachmann's Fallon Intro Music: "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone, Chosen by House Band The Roots

As Michele Bachmann, congresswoman and GOP presidential contender, walked across the stage to sit next to Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, house band the Roots chose to play Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass Bitch." While the audience only heard a "la la" refrain, the message was pretty clear.

Drummer Questlove tweeted prior to the show, clueing viewers in on the band's song choice: "late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title." Later, he retweeted a fan's reaction: "perfect entry song for her." Around noon Tuesday Fallon tweeted, "@Questlove is grounded." 

Subtle, sneaky, and hilarious -- nice work, guys.
