Last night, Paul McCartney more or less took over The Colbert Report for a special hour-long episode, which focused on a Wings reunion and featured a whopping six performances. In a 12-minute interview, McCartney hung with Colbert comedically, perhaps because Colbert wasn't going to absolutely skewer a fucking Beatle. And over the course of the show, McCartney sang "I've Just Seen A Face," "Hi, Hi Hi," "Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kitel," "Listen To What The Man Said," "Lady Madonna," and, as a web exclusive, "Birthday." Watch the interview and some of the performances below. [...]
Paul McCartney had some time to kill in between Monday's epic performance at Barclays Center and Friday's sure-to-be-epic headlining set at Bonnaroo . So, he made his way over to the studios of Comedy Central, where he was undoubtedly disappointed to discover Jon Stewart away from the office filming a movie. Fortunately, Colbert's still in town, and welcomed Macca for an extended-hour long edition of The Colbert Report . Following a brief conversation with Colbert, which delved into the early days of Wings and their new reissue of Wings Over [...]
The National stopped by The Colbert Report the other night and played "Graceless" & "Sea Of Love." There was also a short interview with Colbert and Matt. Watch the clips below. Graceless: The Colbert Report Get More: Colbert Report Full Episodes , Indecision Political Humor , Video Archive Sea Of Love: [...]
Last night, a night after they served as musical guests on Letterman , the National returned to TV, bringing their debonair and sophisticated gloom-rock to The Colbert Report . On Letterman , though, nobody expected them to sit for an interview. And on Colbert , the clearly nervous-as-fuck singer Matt Berninger had to speak on camera to Stephen Colbert, who proceeded to murder him for being a boring interview. (For the record, I've interviewed Berninger before, and I found him to be a delightful talker. But he probably wasn't nervous to talk to [...]
Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman John Fogerty’ s new album, Wrote a Song for Everyone , features collaborations with everyone from Foo Fighters and My Morning Jacket to Brad Paisley and Kid Rock. Last night, he and Dawes appeared together on Late Show with David Letterman and performed their collaboration, "Someday Never Comes". Watch the replay below. Fogerty also appeared on Letterman Monday night, where he performed "Mystic Highway". Wrote a Song for Everyone [...]
Watch the pro gay rights song they performed "Same Love":
Iggy Pop has certain things in life figured out, and one of them is this: You don't attempt to go joke-for-joke with Stephen Colbert when you're on his show. Instead, Iggy, Colbert's guest last night, was just his leathery acid-casualty self during his interview segment with Colbert, and he gave his impression of Link Wray's "Rumble" guitar riff and explained his frequent shirtlessness like this: "The Pharaoh never wore a shirt." Makes sense! (Iggy, it bears mentioning, dressed for the show in a suit, but with the shirt completely open.) He and his Stooges also performed two songs from their [...]
Over the weekend, Iggy and the Stooges performed an intimate concert at New York City's Le Poisson Rouge, which was streamed online by NPR Music and WNYC's Soundcheck (watch the full replay here ). Rather than hit the road, however, the legendary outfit stuck around the Big Apple Monday evening for their first-ever appearance on The Colbert Report. In a slim suit and "almost a shirt", Iggy Pop sat down in Colbert's hot seat, where he regaled the host with tales of his first mugshot ("I [...]
Filed under: News , Video Comedy Central Get ready for "I'm just a Skynyrd fan" to be everyone's new favorite excuse for being racially or sexually intolerant. Last night, Stephen Colbert and actor Alan Cumming came together to spoof Brad Paisley and LL Cool J's blunder of song, "Accident Racist."
Stephen Colbert was the special guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (February 22nd). The playful interview started off with a little pre-Oscars beef, where Fallon and Colbert exchanged Papyrus greeting cards with each other and opened at the count of 23. To their surprise, the contents of both cards were invites...to each others' Oscar-viewing parties. Whoops. The result? They take it to the piano and concoct their own cutely twisted version of the Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney classic "Ebony and Ivory." Since [...]

Last night Dave Grohl appeared on The Colbert Report to talk about his new documentary Sound City . The film is about the now-closed legendary studio where a number of artists from Rick Springfield to Stevie Nicks recorded, as well as where Nirvana's Nevermind was made. Below, watch Grohl and Colbert talk about its genesis and the Sound City Players supergroup with which Grohl is touring. Read More...
Dave Grohl's Sound City Players performed at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom last night. However, prior to the near-four hour performance, the drummer turned frontman turned documentarian visited The Colbert Report to chat about his Sound City documentary. Surprisingly, Colbert kept things tame and straightforward by his standards. Yet the two shared quite the rapport as they reminisced about their time in The White House together. From there, the discussion shifted to the film, Nirvana, and the studio's legendary Neve 8028 analog mixing console. While looking at a superimposed photo of the console, Colbert [...]
Last night, Ben "Bucket Of Laughs" Gibbard served as the latest in a long line of musicians to sit for interviews with Stephen Colbert, and the interview went as awkwardly as they usually do. Two thirds of the way in, there's an extended joke about how utterly uninteresting a human being Gibbard is. He has no interests! But Gibbard managed to rescue things with a performance of " Bigger Than Love ," the Aimee Mann duet from his solo album Former Lives , with an all-star band that featured Mann, Ted Leo, and Mountain Goats/Superchunk cut-up drummer Jon Wurster. [...]
When last we saw Death Gab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard on late night television, he was backed by the mariachi band Trio Ellas for an appearance on Conan . Gibbard returned to TV last night on The Colbert Report with an entirely different supporting cast: a star-studded ensemble featuring Ted Leo , Aimee Man , Superchunk' s Jon Wurster, and keyboardist Jamie Edwards. Together they performed Gibbard's Former Lives single "Bigger Than Love" for the show proper before Gibbard churned out a solo [...]
On Wednesday, Stephen Colbert signed off his show with an old timey Christmas carol, "Good King Wencesles," joined by Michael Stipe and Mandy Patinkin . Last night, he signed off his entire 2012 season with a performance of a more modern Christmas classic, Lennon and Ono's "Happy X-Mas (War Is Over)." This time he stayed on the sidelines with a glass of scotch, while his stage filled with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, soul legend and Tweedy co-conspirator Mavis Staples, the Harlem Gospel Choir, and John and Yoko's son Sean. It's a little rough around the edges, but it is the [...]
Video: Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples, Sean Lennon and the Harlem Gospel Choir – Happy Xmas (War Is Over)
On Monday we kicked off the week with Polyphonic Spree's gorgeous rendition of John Lennon and Yoko Ono's anti-war song - Happy Xmas (War Is Over) , which can be found on the psychedelic choral-rock act's new studio album, Holidaydream: Sounds of the Holidays Vol. One . Today we've got our second cover of the Lennon-Ono classic, that has some direct ties to the original, as last night the impressive trio of Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples, the Harlem Gospel Choir and John and Yoko's son Sean Lennon performed the song on The Colbert Report [...]
Stephen Colbert capped off The Colbert Report' s final episode in 2012 last night with another all-star Christmas carol. Following last night's performance of “Good King Wenceslas” by Michael Stipe and “Saul” from Homeland , Colbert recruited Jeff Tweedy, Mavis Staples, Sean Lennon, and the Harlem Gospel Choir for a rendition of "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)" by Sean's dad John and Yoko Ono. Watch the replay below (via The Audio Perv ).
