NEW YORK (AP) โ€” NBC's Jimmy Fallon says he's sorry for the snarky welcome his "Late Night" band gave to Republican presidential contender Michele Bachmann.

As Bachmann entered the studio for an interview on Tuesday morning's show, the Roots played a snippet of a 1985 Fishbone song. The title of the song is "Lyin' Ass B----."

Fallon tweeted to Bachmann that he was honored that she came onto his show and that "I'm so sorry about the intro mess." He said he hopes she will come back to his show.

One of Bachmann's congressional colleagues, New York Democrat Nita Lowey, had called on NBC to apologize for its "insulting and inappropriate" treatment of its guest.
