Rock on TV Preview: tUnE-yArDs Make Their Late Night Debut
Merrill Garbus

tUnE-yArDs will bring their unclassifiable brand of funky, folky, noisy art pop to Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight. This will be the band's first appearance on a late night talk show, so it should be interesting to see how the commanding, wildly charismatic stage presence of frontwoman Merrill Garbus translates to the small screen. Going on the group's recent concerts, it seems like a fair bet that this end up being one of the more memorable and attention-grabbing late night debuts.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
