After the performances on this past weekend's season finale of 'Saturday Night Live,' guest host Rolling Stone Mick Jagger and the Foo Fighters kept the rock going at the going-away party for the cast and crew, with the Foos reactivating their cover band alter ego Chevy Metal.
Chevy Metal played a handful of rock favorites with past and present 'Saturday Night Live' cast members joining in on vocals.
Amy Poehler-led a rendition of Joan Jett's 'Bad Reputation.' Castmates Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis and Andy Samberg (who are rumored to be leaving the show) rocked another Joan Jett classic, 'I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll,' Will Forte rocked Black Sabbath's and then Jagger joined Chevy Metal on the Stones classics 'Miss You' and 'Bitch.' Check out the performances below along with clips of Jagger's appearance on 'Saturday Night Live.'
The cast party was the end of a busy day for the Foo Fighters, who headlined Bamboozle in Atlantic City earlier in the day before heading to New York to play the ‘SNL’ set.
Here's Jagger's performances of 'The Last Time' with Arcade Fire, '19th Nervous Breakdown/It's Only Rock N' Roll' with the Foo Fighters and 'Tea Party' with Jeff Beck. The Stones hadn't performed 'The Last Time' and '19th Nervous Breakdown' in years. Check out some of the show's best moments, including an Jagger impersonation of Steven Tyler.
Jagger also led a touching send-off for SNL leading lady Kristen Wiig, who's leaving the show after seven years and did a last dance with her castmates to Arcade Fire backing Jagger on a rendition of 'She's A Rainbow.'
‘Saturday Night Live’'s season finale on May 19th looks to be a mini-rock fest of sorts with host Mick Jagger also performing with the Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire on the show.
Entertainment Weekly reported the story on Friday morning. Foo Fighter Dave Grohl has been on the show three times as much as the Rolling Stones‘ frontman. However Grohl has never hosted, something Jagger will be doing solo for the first time.
In 1978 Jagger hosted the show with the rest of the Rolling Stones, and he has also since starred as a musical guest. He also returned earlier this year to cameo when Jimmy Fallon hosted. Between Nirvana, Foo Fighters, and Them Crooked Vultures and his appearance with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Grohl has taken the SNL stage 11 times.
Next weekends show could also be the final one for show regulars Andy Samberg, Jason Sudeikis and Kristine Wiig.
The Rolling Stones apparently have gathered in New York City and are participating in secret rehearsals. The Daily Mirror reported that the band have been jamming on some of their classics, including 'Jumping Jack Flash,' 'Miss You' and 'Tumbling Dice.'
With frontman Mick Jagger set to serve as host and musical guest on the season finale of Saturday Night Live on May 19th, there's speculation that the singer's fellow Stones will join him to perform on the show.
Ben Stiller was the host on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" and broke out an impression from his "Ben Stiller Show" days. Stiller had his own comedy show early in his career that was incredibly funny. On SNL Ben is Bruce promoting "Bruce Springsteen - Just the Stories" DVD collection, with a bonus story from Little Steven. Watch it below:
This past Saturday night (Apr. 9) Foo Fighters made their sixth appearance as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. It was the 10th time Dave Grohl has been on the show as a musical performer, including appearances as a drummer with Nirvana, Tom Petty and Them Crooked Vultures. Grohl is currently the musician with the greatest number of appearances as a musical guest on the show. (Paul Simon has been on the show 11 times, but was only a host for two of those shows.)
The band performed "Walk" and "Rope" from the Foos' latest album Wasting Light, and the Grohl also appeared in two of the night's sketches.
Here's one of the sketches about Helen Mirren's Titties. She has to be the hottest 65 year old woman in history. Raquel Welch is the only other woman that age that could be in the conversation.
