Jimmy Fallon honoured Bob Dylan as he took to the stage to perform an updated version of “The Times They Are A-Changin'” on Sunday’s “Tonight Show”, which went live after the Super Bowl.
Fallon, 43, switched up the lyrics to the 1964 song to reference the likes of the #MeToo movement, Time’s Up, and the NFL protests. He also seemingly took a swipe at Donald Trump on numerous occasions despite not naming any names.
The host sang in the clip: “Come leaders who bully like internet trolls, we’ll curse you with four-letter words ‘love’ and ‘hope’.
“For we will go high even when you go low, the order is re-arranging. For you have the power, but we have the vote, the times they are a-changin’.”
Other lyrics included: “Come women and men who hashtag #MeToo. And believe me when I say that we believe you.
“We give the man who calls out ‘fake news’, #TimesUp. Our silence we’re breaking. Even though Mel Gibson was in ‘Daddy’s Home 2’, the time’s they are a-changin’.”
See the full song in the clip above.
Sunday’s “Tonight Show” also saw Fallon chat to Justin Timberlake about his halftime performance. Despite some fans loving his show, others criticized the singer for paying tribute to Prince.
