Last night on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, an understandably excited Fallon played host to the Beach Boys, back together with resident visionary Brian Wilson for the first time in decades. Fallon turned over a huge chunk of the show to the band. They played three songs: The all-time classics “In My Room” and “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” and the shockingly strong comeback single “That’s Why God Made The Radio.” And in between all that, Fallon interviewed longtime bandmates and enemies Wilson and Mike Love together. It’s weird seeing these two interactive, not that different from seeing Roy Scheider and the shark from Jaws acting all buddy-buddy on TV 45 years later — that is, if the shark did most of the talking and said a ton of nice things about Scheider while Scheider just sort of sat there blinking. Watch the interview and all three performances below.
The Beach Boys’ new album That’s Why God Made The Radio is out 6/5 on Capitol.
