VIDEO: MGMT rocks Pink Floyd classic on Fallon

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s Pink Floyd week continued Wednesday, as the show marks the reissue - this week - of the British rockers’ 14 studio albums, from "The Piper At The Gates of Dawn" (1967) to "The Division Bell" (1994), both individually and as part of a 16-CD Discovery boxed set.

Monday night, Floyd drummer Nick Mason was the first guest of the week, and The Shins were the first musical guests, performing the “Dark Side Of The Moon” classic, “Breathe.” Tuesday, Roger Waters sat for a chat and then rocked “In The Flesh” with the Foo Fighters.

Wednesday, MGMT nailed a version of “Lucifer Sam,” the classic track from the very psychedelic “Piper…” release, complete with some trippy sounds and visuals.

Up Thursday night, Dierks Bentley will perform “Wish You Were Here,” and Friday rocks with Pearl Jam doing “Mother.”
