Watch Stephen Colbert sing 'Blister in the Sun' with the Violent Femmes



We all know the words to Blister in the Sun by the Violent Femmes, right? The 1983 tune is burned on our brains - and the brain of late night talk show host Stephen Colbert, who sang it with the band Tuesday night.

"I think I've played [it] a thousand times, and I can't wait to hear a thousand and one,” Colbert says before introducing the band. Watch it again in this web exclusive.

The acoustic performance on Colbert’s program was to promote their new album We Can Do Anything.
