Fresh off of their four GRAMMY nominations, Greta Van Fleet made their “Saturday Night Live” debut over the weekend.
After being introduced by the night’s host, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” star Rachel Brosnahan, the band played their first song, the GRAMMY-nominated track “Black Smoke Rising” from their first EP. Then they performed “You’re The One” from their debut studio album, “Anthem Of The Peaceful Army.”
Later in the show, “Weekend Update” host Colin Jost referenced the band while talking about last night’s lunar eclipse. “Sunday night will bring a Super Blood Wolf Moon, which is a rare lunar eclipse,” he said. “And not, as I had assumed, the name of the band that just performed on our show.”
- ONE MORE THING! Even with their GRAMMY nods, the band is still being compared to Led Zeppelin. Although Robert Plant himself has drawn the parallels between their sounds, Greta Van Fleet is done with the comparison. In a new interview, frontman Josh Kiszka says that it’s time to “move on.” “Ultimately, I’d like to think that there’s substance to what we’re doing,” he notes. “Obviously we hear the similarity. But at this point it’s like, ‘Okay, we’ve acknowledged that. Let’s move on.’”
