Saturday night, Dave Grohl set a new record for the number of times a musical guest has appeared on SNL, which is now 10.
Grohl performed with John Paul Jones and Josh Hommeon in their group Them Crooked Vultures but he got in on the laughs too.
He’s never been one to shy away from comedy or costumes in Foo Fighters videos and Saturday, he got his chance to show that side of himself by appearing in a skit in which a father gets his old band back together for his daughter’s wedding.
Fred Armisen sings as frontman; Will Hader plays bass and fourth time host Ashton Kutcher plays guitar while Grohl is on the drums in the skit. The four played a noisy metal “song” that climaxed with the destruction of the ballroom.
The band (“Christ of the Deformity”), was the sixth group Grohl has played with on the show (and the second of the night).
Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin may hold the current record holder for the number of times they’ve hosted the show, but Grohl is the new leader among musical guests. Next is line is Paul Simon who has appeared on the show 9 times.
Grohl appeared with Nirvana twice, and then five times with the Foo Fighters.He also sat in with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and Tenacious D before Saturday night’s set with Them Crooked Vultures on Saturday.
