Fall Out Boy just dropped their latest (and actually very good) album Save Rock and Roll, and though their song titles are not as pun-tacular as they used to be, the band clearly hasn’t lost its sense of humor.

On last night’s episode of Conan, the band busted out Save Rock and Roll‘s first single “My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark” with a little help from the famous “Rock and Roll Creation” pods from This Is Spinal Tap.

When one of the pods failed to open (as they are wont to do) and imprisoned bassist Pete Wentz, Tap’s own bassist Derek Smalls (a.k.a. actor and writer Harry Shearer) filled in on the low end.

He brought along some pals, too. Check out the entirety of Fall Out Boy’s performance on last night’s episode of Conan below:

Oh Stonehenge, you’re a joke that never gets old.

Shearer’s appearance with Fall Out Boy finally closes a particular pop culture loop: the band took their name from a character mentioned on The Simpsons (he was the sidekick to super hero Radioactive Man), a show that features the voice talents of Shearer (he lends his pipes to Ned Flanders, Mr. Burns, Kent Brockman, Otto, and dozens of others).

Fall Out Boy’s Save Rock and Roll is on sale now. What do you think of the group’s big comeback?
