A couple of years ago I was at home on a random weeknight watching Letterman when the Silversun Pickups came out and rocked “Panic Switch” so hard that I literally got up off my couch and started air guitaring all over the place. It remains to this day one of the most electric performances by a band I’ve ever seen on late night TV. Letterman even went over to the band afterwards and praised them endlessly.

So of course I had to set my DVR last night to tape record the band’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live — and they did not disappoint. I had to wait until I ate lunch today to watch them, but I’d been listening to their new album — which you can download on Amazon for $5 right now — on repeat all day, so I was more than primed. Anyway, they performed two songs awesomely on the show, embeds of which are below.

Here’s “Bloody Mary”…

And here’s “The Pit”…
