It's no secret that Fred Armisen is really into music. Having played drums in the punk-rock band, Trenchmouth and in the stage act, Blue Man Group, Fred is for sure our resident rocker and we love nothing more than when that vibe makes its way into sketches. Often oddball, but always hilarious, here are some of our favorite Fred musical moments from throughout the years. Enjoy!
Fly High Duluth
From Scarlett Johansson's first time hosting, here is the world's least succinct morning Talk Show theme song featuring Fred on the drums (which he is actually playing.) Also, oh hi Jorm!
New Age Band
River Bliss will tell you, it's not easy always losing to Enya.
New York Underground
Noah Baumbach, director of "The Squid and the Whale" and "Greenberg," hung out for a couple of weeks back in 2008 and ended up directing Fred in this filmed piece about New York's underground music scene. "Wine and Cigarettes" still gets stuck in our heads from time to time.
These guys will play music for you, but they will NOT like it.
Band reunion at the Wedding
Fist Fight! Fist Fight! Fist Fight in the parking lot!
This song HAUNTS the office. No exaggeration, if one person sings even one word from it, there is an insane ripple effect that ends with everyone having this song stuck in their heads. EVERYONE.
A Taste of New York
These guys were wondering, can they crash at your place?
Elton Visits the Queen
Queen Elizabeth is an absolute terror on the mic.
The Blue Jean Committee
The best afternoons are Massachusetts Afternoons, hanging out on the porch, drinking cinnamon beer with you.
Pippa Visits the Queen
Once more from the Queen!
