Foo Fighters Perform On ‘Saturday Night Live’

Last night Foo Fighters were the musical guest on the final 2017 episode of Saturday Night Live, marking the seventh time the band has been tapped to appear on the late-night comedy sketch series. Dave Grohl & Co. used the opportunity to perform a tune from their most recent studio effort, as well as have fun with being the musical guest on the Christmas episode show, which was hosted by actor/comedian Kevin Hart.

For their first song of the night the band went the traditional route plugging their latest release Concrete And Gold by performing “The Sky Is a Neighborhood.” For their second appearance of the night Grohl donned a Christmas sweater as he threw everyone watching a bit of a curveball by playing a portion of “Everlong,” from their 1997 release The Colour and the Shape by himself. As the song was about to kick in the stage lights lit up revealing the rest of the band a trio of backup singer as it slammed straight into a take on “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” The tune, which was originally sung by Darlene Love and appeared on the 1963 Christmas compilation A Christmas Gift for You from Phil Spector than transitioned into a hard rock version of Vince Guaraldi’s instrumental “Linus And Lucy,” which is best known from its inclusion on A Charlie Brown Christmas.
