Cult rockers They Might Be Giants will swing by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon tonight to promote the latest record Join Us. The new disc is their first non-children's album since 2007, so the group are likely to let out years of pent-up adult angst and sexuality in a blast of anguished vulgarity. Just kidding! They will almost certainly play a song that is adorable, cerebral and catchy because that is what They Might Be Giants do. But you know, maybe not! Tune in to find out.

Anna Calvi - Late Show with David Letterman, CBS 11:35 p.m.

Vanessa Carlton - Tonight Show with Jay Leno, NBC 11:35 p.m.

Chris Young - Jimmy Kimmel Live, ABC 12:00 a.m.

Austin Brown - Lopez Tonight, TBS 12:00 a.m.

They Might Be Giants - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 12:35 a.m.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
