The Foo Fighters sang “Everlong” on this week’s “SNL.” Earlier, the Foo Fighters performed “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” on “SNL.” See the video below of them playing “Everlong” on “Saturday Night Live.”

As Gossip Cop noted earlier, this is the seventh time the Foo Fighters have been the main musical guest, the eighth time they’ve appeared on “SNL,” and the 12th time the band’s lead singer Dave Grohl has performed on “Saturday Night Live.” The Foo Fighters first played on the show in December 1995. They returned again four years later in November 1999 and then four years after that in February 2003.

The band took the “SNL” stage for its fourth time in November 2005. It reached the milestone of being members of the sketch comedy show’s “Five-Timers Club” in October 2007. Their next appearance came in April 2011. And now they’re back again.

As previously mentioned, Grohl also performed on “Saturday Night Live” twice in the early 1990s as a member of Nirvana, and played drums as back-up to Tom Petty’s appearance in 1994. Additionally, his supergroup Them Crooked Vultures were the musical guest in 2010 and, along wth his Foo Fighters bandmates, they backed up Mick Jagger when he took to the show’s stage in 2010.

Grohl has also been featured in a number of sketches over the years. During the band’s 2007 appearance, Grohl and the band’s drummer Taylor Hawkins were in a “SNL Digital Short” called “People Getting Punched Right Before Eating.” Much like the title suggests, they two band members got hit prior to enjoying some food.

In 2011, Grohl played a DJ in a strip joint for a sketch called “Bongo’s Clown Room.” In that same episode, he also made a cameo in a “SNL Digital Short” that centered around cast members touching guest host Helen Mirren’s breasts and being transported to a magical world where man first landed on the moon, the Israelis and Palestinians made made, and also where Grohl hangs out.

And when Grohl played with Them Crooked Vultures in 2010, he was in a sketch with guest host Ashton Kutcher, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, who played the father of a bride at a wedding. The premise was they regrouping from their band from 27 years earlier as a special treat for the bride and groom. What they played, though, was a punk song called “Fistfight In The Parking Lot,” during which they turned over tables, destroyed the wedding cake, and basically trashed the nuptials.

Check out the video below of the Foo Fighters returning to “Saturday Night Live” to perform “Everlong.”
