The Super Bowl may have paid (controversial) homage to Minnesota's late, great Prince, but during the live afterparty at Minneapolis' Orpheum Theatre, Jimmy Fallon did a special tribute to another Minnesota native, Bob Dylan. Dressed in full Dylan garb, Fallon performed an updated version of Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'," pulling in Twitter, #MeToo, and, of course, President Trump, though not by name.

The song isn't funny, really, and it isn't supposed to be. "Come leaders who bully like internet trolls, we'll curse you with four-letter words 'love' and 'hope,'" Fallon's Dylan sings. "For we will go high even when you go low, the order is re-arranging / For you have the power, but we have the vote / The times they are a-changin'." You can read the lyrics at The Tonight Show's YouTube page, and if you don't appreciate the message, Fallon's spot-on early Dylan impression might be worth watching anyway. Peter Weber
