“The Harder They Come” f. The Roots (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    Legendary reggae star Jimmy Cliff has a new EP out titled Sacred Fire, which features a neat piece of full-circle tributary in the shape of a cover of the Clash’s “The Guns of Brixton”—a song that name-checks Cliff’s 1972 film The Harder They Come. The singer turned to the theme song from that movie for a performance on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night, which saw him peel away the years and launch into a tight version of the track with a little help from the Roots. There was also a web-only exclusive performance of “World Upside Down” performed for the show—check out both clips below. [via The Audio Perv]
