On Monday, "The Tonight Show" got extreme. Or rather, got Extreme, thanks to a hilarious shot-for-shot cover by Jack Black and Jimmy Fallon of the Boston band's video for their 1990 No. 1 hit "More than Words."

It's a gentle ballad, a rarity from the hard rock outfit (who are still together and touring in their 25th year), and the video (directed by future "Little Miss Sunshine" pair Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris) is entrancing, yet similarly low-key.
