Fallon sang, "They shut down the tollbooths of glory `cause we didn't endorse Chris Christie."

Clad in matching sleeveless denim shirts, red bandannas and sunglasses, the duo sang, "You're killing the working man/who's stuck in Governor Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey traffic jam."

Christie considers himself among The Boss' biggest fans and said he wept after he got a hug from Springsteen at a benefit concert for Superstorm Sandy victims in 2012.
