Foo Fighters are ready to fight on.

The rockers released the new single "Shame Shame" after debuting it on Saturday Night Live tonight.

The hypnotic earworm will be included on the group's upcoming album Medicine at Midnight, which is set to drop Feb. 5. Dave Grohl and company performed "Shame Shame" on a post-election SNL hosted by Dave Chappelle. It was the Foo Fighters' eighth time performing on the show, and Grohl's 14th musical appearance, the most in SNL history.

Medicine at Midnight will be the band's first album since 2017's Concrete and Gold.

The new album is set to include nine songs: "Making a Fire," "Shame Shame," "Cloudspotter," "Waiting on a War Medicine at Midnight," "No Son of Mine," "Holding Poison," "Chasing Birds" and "Love Dies Young."

In addition to debuting the new song, the band was on the legendary sketch show to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album. NBC announced the Foo Fighters' appearance on Wednesday, after Election Night. This year, Grohl spoke out against Donald Trump in support of teachers, like his mom, Virginia Grohl.

Grohl has also kept his fans entertained during the coronavirus pandemic. He started a brand new Instagram account called @Davestruestories, a series of posts meant to "make people smile."
