Watch Ryan Adams Give the ‘Ellen’ Show ‘Something Good’

Ryan Adams Ellen Degeneres Performance Black Flag Gimme Something Good

Ryan Adams appeared on Ellen yesterday morning to play the audience something good. Literally.

Adams, who is promoting both his recent punk EP 1895 and also September’s self-titled LP, delighted Ellen Degeneres and her audience with a rousing performance of “Gimme Something Good.” All the lucky audience members also got a copy of Ryan Adams, as long as they promised not to talk ask him about his wife, Mandy Moore.

The former Whiskeytown member has been playing “Something Good” a lot recently, sometimes twice in a row. He also played it on CBS’ Late Show last month, and notable music enthusiast David Letterman was so impressed that he requested an encore.
