Questlove: NBC clearing Roots songs for Fallon
Questlove says NBC now checking Roots songs for Fallon after Bachmann-song debacle
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' NBC is now checking the songs the Roots play on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" after the band performed an off-color song during Michele Bachmann's show appearance last month.

Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson of The Roots says now he's "gotta clear a lot of the song choices" with the network.

He says NBC wants to "know the title of the song, the subject matter of the song ' can it be seen as an insult?"

When the Republican presidential candidate appeared on the show Nov. 22, house band The Roots played a snippet of a 1985 Fishbone song called "Lyin' Ass B----." She received an apology from NBC and Fallon also apologized.

Thompson said Thursday it was wrong not to warn NBC about his intention to play the song.
