Jersey boys the Gaslight Anthem hit Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. On air they performed “Boxer,” off their terrific new American Slang, but they stayed onstage afterward to tear through Pearl Jam’s “State of Love and Trust.” They’ve been playing the song live for the past few years, but never in such a high profile venue.

Never ones to hide their influences (insert obligatory Bruce Springsteen comparison here), the Gaslight Anthem look like they’re having the time of their lives. Though, to be fair, that’s how they look whenever they perform. This song rocks hard even for them, which is saying a lot. Watch the video below, then download the MP3 for your on-the-go enjoyment.
