Greta Van Fleet became the first artist to play Saturday Night Live in 2019, breaking up the show's recent slew of pop and hip-hop musical guests with their throwback Seventies rock sound. The rising Michigan group's 2018 debut album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, had been met with some backlash due to its overt Led Zeppelin callbacks, but the band has also won over many fans, including the folks over at the Grammys, who rewarded Greta's retro efforts with four 2019 nominations.
For their SNL debut, the band was introduced by host and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan, and they performed two cuts, "Black Smoke Rising," the title track of their 2017 EP, and "You're the One," the second single off their full-length. Greta also popped up during "Weekend Update" when SNL's Colin Jost jokeed: "Sunday night will bring a Super Blood Wolf Moon, which is a rare lunar eclipse, and not, as I had assumed, the name of the band that just performed on our show!"
