Watch Violent Femmes, Scatting Colbert Perform 'Blister in the Sun'

24 February 2016 6:57 AM, PST | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Alt-rock veterans Violent Femmes recruited Stephen Colbert for a quirky rendition of their 1983 classic "Blister in the Sun" Tuesday on The Late Show. The web-exclusive clip features a gushing introduction from the host, who says of "Blister," "I think I've played [it] a thousand times, and I can't wait to hear a thousand and one."

The trio perform in an acoustic setup, with live percussionist John Sparrow wielding brushes on a barbecue grill. After a brief audience sing-along, frontman Gordon Gano calls out Colbert for a cameo, which includes hushed singing and hilarious jazz-folk scatting. »
