Maroon 5 was the musical guest on this week’s “Saturday Night Live” and the group performed “Animals.”

Earlier in the week, Maroon 5’s video for “Animals” was condemned by the sexual assault support group Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network (RAINN) for depicting Adam Levine as a butcher who becomes obsessed with a woman (portrayed by his real-life wife Behati Prinsloo, and creepily sneaks into her bed, and fantasizes about having blood soaked sex with her.

The chorus of the controversial song goes:

Baby, I’m preying on you tonight
Hunt you down eat you alive
Just like animals
Like animals

Maybe you think that you can hide
I can smell your scent for miles
Just like animals
Like animals
