Welsh alt-rock collective Manic Street Preachers were a BFD in Britain in the mid-’90s, so it’s kind of shocking that they’ve never played an American late-night program before last night.

Playing their 1996 single “A Design for Life” (taken from their album Everything Must Go), frontman James Dean Bradfield howled through the bombastic track, making their debut set an undeniably successful one. Watch it above.
