2021 couldn't just slip quietly out the door. It had to take Betty White on the way out. The beloved TV icon passed away at the mighty age of 99 on December 31st. Among the many standout moments of her celebrated career, our favorite might be when she hosted Saturday Night Live on Mothers' Day weekend in 2010. The show's sketches included a digital short in which the SNL cast — including, at the time, noted metalhead Fred Armisen — sang "Thank You For Being a Friend" from White's groundbreaking sitcom, The Golden Girls.
Midway through the skit, the elderly actress thanks Andy Samberg and the rest for their sweet performance — but as it turns out, she has her own perferred version. White pulls on a ski mask and unloads a brutal death-metal rendition, complete with rabid headbangers committing acts of violence in the mosh pit. "Happy Mothers' Day, motherfuckers!" she wishes the audience adorably in the end. Watch the insanity unfold above.
