Metallica’s done a lot of brilliant things in their career. They have made or been involved with at least four perfect works of art. Their first three albums and the documentary Some Kind of Monster are cultural touchstones that will be looked to and enjoyed for generations.

They’ve also done some things that have not been so great. In 1999, they led the charge against mp3-sharing platform Napster, which alienated some fans — and got some us kicked off the site, not that we’re holding any grudges. They also released St. Anger, which come on.

Jimmy Fallon loves to play games and have fun. He likes to make politicians wear funny pants and give noogies to a reality gameshow host turned most powerful person on the planet. It’s his thing.

And now there’s this, a video of Metallica performing “Enter Sandman” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on classroom instruments. Only time will tell if this falls into their works of cultural touchstones or cultural blunders. But honestly, it’ll probably just be a cute thing that makes a lot of people smile for three minutes. Enjoy!

There's a new Santa in town, and this guy prefers to sit in your lap.

Yes, it seems Buddy the Elf's been promoted. Will Ferrel showed up at Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night looking like the unaborted lovechild of a Backstreet Boy and Mrs. Clause. Ferrel went on to drag out a fratastic dialogue, all the while clad in an all too revealing Christmas-themed cutoff that'd impress the likes of fashion titan Mugatu.

So make sure to be good this year, because we don't even want to know what happens to the dudes on the naughty list.

Case Claused.

Samantha Bee has a centaur centered comeback for Vanity Fair's talk show story.

Earlier today, Vanity Fair tweeted out a promotion for their big story on what's so good about current late night programming.



You may notice it's a real sausage fest in there.



To be fair, Vanity Fair did mention the lack of gender diversity in their story:

What's conspicuously missing from late-night, still, is women. How gobsmackingly insane is it that no TV network has had the common sense—and that's all we're talking about in 2015, not courage, bravery, or even decency—to hand over the reins of an existing late-night comedy program to a female person?



And they did mention comedienne Samantha Bee's upcoming TBS late night talk show. She, however, decided to respond directly to the tweet, imagining herself in the picture with the rest of her peers.



And then followed up with the kicker:



Really, a Samantha Bee centaur shooting lasers out of her eyes says it all.

Links of the Day: Model Falls, Trump Selfie,



Well, the weekend happened. The first one after Labor Day.

Did it feel more like fall? Did you spend it watching football? Enjoying the last bit of summer?

However you laid back this weekend, you probably missed some of the best stuff that went down, Internet-side. That's where we come in.

Here's some of what happened over the last few days.

In their continuing effort to education America on the history of hip hop, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake performed their sixth lecture/performance Sept. 9.

They turned the Tonight Show stage into a regular adult education center as they ran through a large gamut of new and old music, backed by the fantastic sounds of The Roots.

And it's a hit! They land an eclectic and wildly entertaining bunch of songs. The thing never unravels, though it was close when Fallon reveals his Compton beginnings.



It's a continuation on a long-running series the two have performed beginning back when Fallon hosted Late Night. Unfortunately, NBC doesn't want anyone seeing those other lessons and has removed the videos from YouTube.

However, Spin has chronicled all the songs featured in the previous installments.

President Obama knows that Donald Trump is probably stressing out over the Aug. 5 first Republican primary debate, so he decided to offer some advice.

Jimmy Fallon's Donald Trump impression might be as weak as his ring finger, but the jokes that spring from this little interaction stand on their own. Plus, half the fun of watching a Jimmy Fallon impression is seeing how far away he can get from the real thing.

This phone preparation covers a great many topics between the sitting president and the man who led the birther cause.

They joked on Chris Christie, Trump got his own Cecil the lion trophy and the whole thing ended with an autotuned duet of OMI's Cheerleader.



Trump's probably had a busy enough week, what with answering all those phone calls after his cell number went public.

That surely won't stop the fireworks from blowing up in tomorrow's debate as the top 10 polled contenders for the Republican party nomination spar for a chance to say anything slightly meaningful in the most presidential way possible.

For the third time, Simon Pegg flexes his nerd muscles to appear on The Tonight Show as a sloppy drunk Ron Weasley.

The schtick is the same as it ever was: poor Ron Weasley has turned to drink after the world only cares about the exploits of the Boy Who Lived.

His heart's at least in the right place as he shows up on late night to wish his best friends a happy 35th birthday.

Things even have taken a turn for the worse as it appears Hermione left the penniless ginger (again) for someone, probably a Slytherin, else.

Jimmy Fallon tries to both cheer up the soused wizard and protect his talk show audience from Weasley's desire to show his junk.

Humor ensues.

The last time Drunk Ron Weasley appeared on The Tonight Show, it went just about as well.

We don't need to tell you that, as a culture, we have successful reached Peak Lip Sync.

With Ru Paul's Drag Race entering its eighth season next year, Jimmy Fallon continuing to rely on it as a perennial favorite on The Tonight Show and the celebrity flotsam that is Lip Sync Battle rising from the shallow minds over at Spike, there's more than enough mouthing words while animatedly moving in the world.

With all of that said, it doesn't mean that we shouldn't pay attention when man of metaphysical mystery Tom Cruise grabs the unplugged microphone and squares off against Fallon.

In one fell swoop, Maverick delivers something from The Weeknd and Meatloaf, creating an unexpected duo of delightful drama.

Of course, Jimmy does great work as well. But he was born and bred for this stuff — it's like complimenting how well a duck swims.

Cruise, on the other hand, pleasantly surprises.

Some thoughtless wanted Jimmy Fallon to play him a song after we all know the Tonight Show host almost lost his finger in a truly terrifying accident.

The good guy that he is decided to go ahead and make some music, but he needed some help.

Luckily, Chevy Chase also hurt himself in a filthy way (we'll let him tell you what happened) and he stepped in to give The Tonight Show a little soul.

It's just about time for Chase to start making the press rounds for the return of the Griswolds as the awful-looking Vacation reboot? sequel? opens July 29.

As far as the trailer shows, Chase is only in it for cameo purposes, but marketing is marketing.

In case you forgot that Vin Diesel was a big geek, he shamelessly reminded you on his Facebook page July 19.

The big man was celebrating his 48th birthday in his own style with this gorgeous cake shaped like Dungeons & Dragons books.

Diesel has long been open about his fandom with the table top role playing game and about how it helped him shape his identity and build confidence

He also said as much to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Bill Hader visited The Tonight Show July 16 and if you think it was just to promote his new movie Trainwreck, think again.

Instead, we were all treated to an extended 'clip' of the cop show Point Pleasant Police Department, an 'old' show that Hader and Jimmy Fallon 'used to co-star in together'.

Essentially this is just an excuse to spit out food and drink on each other while prouncing 'P' words.




The thing has one joke. And it's nine minutes long. Fortunately, they can't stop laughing about it and neither can we.

Nothing about this concept deserves to be as funny as it turns out. Hader and Fallon are just pros at not being pros.

What makes this nonsense extra delightful is thinking about former Tonight Show hosts doing this skit. Imagine Jay Leno or Johnny Carson doing this. They wouldn't go near such a disgusting and hilarious bit. 

Enjoy!

In the most recent episode of "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee", Jerry Seinfeld teamed up Internet weirdo and YouTube star Miranda Sings.

The character, created by comedian Colleen Ballinger in 2008, performs awkward music covers and wears too much lipstick, much to the delight/dismay of her millions of subscribers.

This is the first time an Internet celebrity has been on the show, and she didn't break character the entire episode - or drink any coffee for that matter.

Most recently, the two also appeared on "The Tonight Show" to play Pictionary, and all of it was pure comedic gold.

That's gold Jerry! Gold!
