Andrew Garfield Performs ‘Spider-Man’ Theme With The Roots On ‘The Tonight Show’ [Video]
If you’re like me and the sight of Jimmy Fallon pulling out an acoustic guitar fills you with a vague sense of dread, you may want to look away. Don’t worry, though! It turns out okay! See, Andrew Garfield, who stars as the title role of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has been learning how to play guitar, and in a segment on The Tonight Show, Fallon offers one up so that Garfield can make his public debut as a musician.
His song of choice? The rollicking theme from the classic Spider-Man cartoon. And then he’s joined by The Roots. It’s pretty awesome.
The addition of The Roots may, in fact, be the second-best performance of that song in history, edging Tenacious D out of the #2 spot but still falling short of the all-time champ, the hard-rocking version put out by the Ramones in the ’90s:
If that’s not enough Amazing Spider-Man 2 related musical fun for you, it’s well worth your time to check out Emma Stone’s appearance on The Tonight Show from earlier this week. Stone, who plays Gwen Stacy in the film, gets into a “lip sync battle” against Fallon, and listen. It’s pretty great.
