Watch: The National’s Matt Berninger covers the Velvet Underground’s ‘I’m Waiting for the Man’ on ‘Fallon’

Following the recent release of 'Serpentine Prison'

Following the release of Serpentine Prison, The National’s Matt Berninger recently took to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to perform a cover of Velvet Underground’s “I’m Waiting for the Man.”

While Fallon did make a big slip up when introducing Berninger, saying that “I’m Waiting For The Man” comes from Serpentine Prison, Berninger is a longtime Velvet Underground fan, so this cover makes perfect sense.

Berninger and his band turned the sparse track into a prettier rendition of the 1967 classic, as he growls his way through the lyrics.
