Gotta give it up for the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon producers this week. With the Rolling Stones "Exile on Main Street" getting re-released, the show brought in a band each night to perform their version of a tune off that legendary album. Nicely hit-and-miss; even when some artists struggled to make it a definitive version (Green Day on "Rip it Up" and Sheryl Crow on " All Down the Line"), they still looked like they were having fun. And when a band found the magic and had a great performance (Keith Urban with "Tumbling Dice" and Phish with "Loving Cup"), it was great music TV.

Below are two of the best. Urban's band is straight up rock and roll here and gives us the side of the artist that's been drowned out by Nashville hitmaking pop bullshit on his recent albums. Bonus: Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell joins them.

And Phish? They were freakin' inspired and just so damn good on their song Thursday night. Put any anti-jam band bias in your pocket for five minutes (I did) and watch. Great version.
