Fallon apologizes to Bachmann

(CNN) -- TV show host Jimmy Fallon apologized to GOP presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann via Twitter Tuesday for a song played as the presidential candidate walked on stage for her Monday interview on NBC's "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."

"I'm honored that @michelebachmann was on our show yesterday and I'm so sorry about the intro mess. I really hope she comes back," he wrote on Twitter.

As the Minnesota Congresswoman walked out to greet Fallon on stage, the show's band, The Roots, played a song by Fishbone called "Lyin' Ass Bitch."

Bachmann, while waving and smiling as she walked out Monday night, appeared unaware of the song or its lyrics, some of which include the words, "I really thought our love was much too strong / But that little slut just proved us wrong."

It appears the song choice was intentional. Prior to Bachmann's arrival on stage, the band's drummer, Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson, tweeted during the show: "Aight late night walkon song devotees: you love it when we snark: this next one takes the cake. ask around cause i aint tweeting title."

Despite the song choice, the interview was quite amicable, with Bachmann and Fallon trading jokes.

But after the show, Fallon blasted out: "@Questlove is grounded," and on Tuesday the band issued a statement saying "the performance was a tongue-in-cheek and spur of the moment decision."

As of Tuesday night, Bachmann had not responded to the song.
