(CNN) — By now, it’s pretty clear Jimmy Fallon does what Jimmy Fallon wants to do on ‘The Tonight Show’ — and whatever he does, goes immediately viral.

The Neil Young impersonations, the covers of pop songs with toy instruments, and now this: a shot-for-shot remake of the early 90’s monster ballad, “More than Words.”
