The Foo Fighters are a band that can pretty much play any type of music and it would sound absolutely amazing. This weekend, they further proved their awesomeness by bringing the house down at Studio 8H with an epic (and festive) performance on Saturday Night Live (SNL).
SNL was hosted by Kevin Hart with the Foo Fighters as the musical guest. Earlier on in the broadcast, the band hit the stage to play their newest hit song The Sky is a Neighborhood off of their new album Concrete and Gold. When they returned to the stage for an encore performance, the spotlight hit lead singer Dave Grohl who was sporting a super fancy ugly Christmas sweater. Grohl kicked off the set by performing a stripped-down version of Everlong. It was just him and his guitar to start but shortly after, pure magic happened.
The lights turned on revealing a festive and decorative musical set just as the rest of the band, comprised of Pat Smear, Nate Mendel, Rami Jaffee, Chris Shiflett and Taylor Hawkins, kicked everything into high gear.
The group then totally rocked to the holiday classic tunes Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) and Linus and Lucy from A Charlie Brown Christmas with their back up singers taking the vocal lead while the rest of the band did what they do best – jammed out!
Check out the awesome and festive performance below:
