Saturday Night Live (SNL) witnessed a triumphant return of the Foo Fighters on Saturday night, marking their first appearance on the iconic show since 2020. Dave Grohl and the legendary rock band graced the stage with an electrifying performance of “Rescued” and a special collaboration with the talented H.E.R. on “The Glass.” This long-awaited SNL reunion was certainly one for the books.
The Foo Fighters’ SNL history is nothing short of legendary. Their debut on the show dates back to 1995 when William Goldsmith was behind the drums. By 1999, the iconic Taylor Hawkins had taken over the drumming duties. Over the years, the band has continued to make memorable appearances on the show, consistently delivering unforgettable performances.
The evening’s SNL performance was particularly significant, as it marked a departure from their usual lineup. For the first time since their 1995 debut, the Foo Fighters graced Studio 8H without Taylor Hawkins, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the night.
This appearance on Saturday Night Live had been a long time coming. Originally scheduled for May, the episode was canceled due to the Writers Guild of America strike. Now, after months of anticipation, the band finally took the stage at SNL, much to the delight of fans and music enthusiasts.
After SNL’s 49th season returned to the screens, the Foo Fighters made a grand entrance, following previous musical guests such as Ice Spice and Bad Bunny. Their performances left no room for disappointment, demonstrating once again why they are one of rock music’s most cherished acts.
