Foo Fighters will be making their eighth appearance as musical guests on Saturday Night Live when the band join host Dave Chappelle for the first post-election episode this weekend. As for Dave Grohl, he'll be topping his own record.

Grohl already maintains the most musical appearances on SNL, with 13 total since the Kevin Hart-fronted stint from December 2017. That number accounts for his appearances with Foo Fighters, Nirvana, and alongside Mick Jagger and Tom Petty on stage. After this weekend, he'll be at 14.

NBC announced the news in a fresh promo for the episode, released on Wednesday after Election Night. This year, Grohl spoke out against Donald Trump in support of teachers, like his mom, Virginia Grohl.

Foo Fighters are also celebrating the band's 25th anniversary, although they had to postpone their April 2020 Van Tour due to the pandemic.

Chappelle previously hosted SNL's first post-election episode of 2016 with A Tribe Called Quest as musical guests.
