Watch The Hold Steady Perform the Theme Song for Seth Meyers' <i>The Awesomes</I>

Things are going pretty well for current Weekend Update host Seth Meyers.

After nearly 12 years as a writer/performer on Saturday Night Live, the funnyman will be leaving the famed NBC show to take over Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night early next year when Fallon makes the move to The Tonight Show.

In addition, Meyers has an original animated series currently streaming on Hulu called The Awesomes. Created by Meyers and Late Night writer Mike Shoemaker, the show follows the misadventures of a group of subpar superheroes called in to replace a more beloved superpowered team.

For music fans, one of the major appeals of the show is the (appropriately) awesome theme song courtesy of The Hold Steady called “Let’s Get Awesome!” There’s now an official video for the song, which has the show’s animated main characters interacting with the live-action band.
