Holy crap it's Dave Grohl

Ashton Kutcher has obviously never touched a guitar in his life

Yeah, that's all I have to say about that

I saw that. I was gonna mention it here. But then I didn't.

I appreciate that they got their stereotypes right mostly. But the structure of that song wasn't really characteristic of the style, and the riffs were a little off. Also the lyrics were awful, but I guess that's acceptable, since it could be argued that the band was supposed to be bad.
There's my opinion.

Oh, I wasn't saying you should have known or anything.

I thought it was surprising how well done the song was, actually... usually punk impressions are absolutely awful...

agreed, that was definitely done well with someone (probably grohl) knowing a thing or two about punk rock

Meh. I've never actually been all that impressed with it. It is overly sentimental and it makes me jealous cuz dude makes billions of dollars by accident.

I've seen it loads of times cuz of the nursing home I work at playing it ad infinitum.

It's good for the occasional pop culture reference though.

Dave Grohl's real band that played on the show sucked.

That was actually pretty spot on of what 90% of 80s hardcore sounded like.
Not sure if that is a good or bad thing though...

Ashton's so punk he doesnt need a pick. It was probably such a good song because wasnt Fred Armisan in like a hardcore band once?

On the opening theme (where all the actors' names are announced) it shows some records or something that say "Sex Pistols" and "The Jam." I think that part corresponds to Armisan's name. That could mean he's a p0nk fan, or it could be completely irrelevant.

The Suicidal Tendencies-esque breakdown was the best part. Plus, I'm guessing the "Cadena-Norton Wedding" might be a reference to Dez Cadena and Greg Norton.

^I think that was mentioned earlier.

It's awesome if that's where the names came from.

This whole skit had me laughin my ass off. This is somethin I'd do at my daughter's wedding. And like someone else said, the Suicidal Tendencies breakdown in the middle was great. Very mid to late 80's sounding. Definitely a great among SNL greats. And to all you people who picked apart the music or whether Ashton ever touched a guitar, who cares. Its a comedy skit. And a brilliant one at that.

I don't know if I'd call it brilliant... I doubt many people outside the punk community enjoyed it as much as we did.

I didn't think it was that funny. Of course I giggled giddily because I "got it," but overall I think it was pretty average.

Last week's episode was better.

There's a documentary floating around called "Anvil! The story of Anvil" about a band called - you guessed it - Anvil. I'm pretty sure that's where they got the idea for this skit.

I think it goes beyond punk. What it does is show that some parents used to be a lot mor wild than what their kids would ever suspect they were. Whether they were into punk, metal or whatever. Or maybe I'm reading more into it because of my age.

I seriously doubt they got the idea for this from a terrible documentary about a terrible metal band.

Nice try.

Not exactly... there's a scene in that movie where they play this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HFC6NevKYuI) at a wedding.
