One of the few bands that can do this justice and it doesn't feel completely forced.

That's how I'm feeling. I generally avoid the Beastie Boys covers because it has gotten annoying, but when I saw the Roots I knew it was worth clicking. Definitely one of the best bands out there as far as musicianship is concerned.

I don't think any of the covers I've seen have been annoying.

The Roots always come through. Part of the reason I started watching Jimmy Fallon.

Even if you're not a huge fan of their catalog, you have to respect The Roots as musicians. Loved hearing this.
