Jimmy Fallon will release his second album, Blow Your Pants Off, on June 12th. Unlike his 2002 comedy record The Bathroom Wall, which mixed goofy songs with standup performances, the new disc is focused mainly on song parodies and team-ups with high-profile rock stars from his gig hosting Late Night on NBC.

Blow Your Pants Off will include Fallon's impressions of Neil Young, David Bowie, Jim Morrison and Bob Dylan, as well as guest performances by Justin Timberlake, Eddie Vedder, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Big & Rich, Stephen Colbert, Brian Williams and Dave Matthews. A number of songs, including "History of Rap" and "Balls in Your Mouth," have already been viral hits.

The track listing for Blow Your Pants Off is as follows:

"Neil Young Sings 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'"
"History of Rap" (feat. Justin Timberlake)
"Tebowie"
"Scrambled Eggs" (feat. Paul McCartney)
"The Doors Sing 'Reading Rainbow'"
"Balls In Your Mouth" (feat. Eddie Vedder)
"My Upstairs Neighbors Are Having Sex (And Listening to the Black Eyed Peas)"
"Bob Dylan Sings 'Charles in Charge'"
"Walk of Shame" (feat. Dave Matthews)
"Slow Jam the News" (feat. Brian Williams)
"New French Girlfriend"
"Cougar Huntin’" (feat. Big & Rich)
"You Spit When You Talk"

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
