Foo Fighters were the musical guests on last night’s Dave Chappelle-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live. Their performance marked the debut of their new song “Shame Shame,” which they officially released as the episode aired. The song will appear on their just-announced album Medicine at Midnight, which is out February 5, 2021 on Roswell Records/RCA. Foo Fighters also performed their 2002 track “Times Like These” on last night’s show. Listen to their new single and watch Foo Fighters’ SNL performances below.
Medicine at Midnight was produced by Greg Kurstin and Foo Fighters, engineered by Darrell Thorp and mixed by Mark “Spike” Stent, and features nine songs across 37 minutes. Find the tracklist below.
The SNL episode aired the same day the presidential election was called for Joe Biden. Its cold open focused on Biden’s win (with Jim Carrey reprising his role as Biden) and featured Alec Baldwin appearing as Donald Trump singing the Village People’s “Macho Man” at a piano. It also featured Maya Rudolph as Kamala Harris dancing to “Lose Yo Job.”
Foo Fighters released their 00959525 EP back in January. The 6-track record features two live recordings from 1995. Prior to the EP, Foo Fighters’ last studio album was Concrete and Gold, from 2017. More recently the group performed on a livestream tribute for the late Tom Petty.
