Mick Jagger hosted “Saturday Night Live” Saturday night (May 19) and naturally, even though he was the host, he joined Arcade Fire for some musical performances as well. One of the performances consisted of “Tea Party,” a blues number that featured a guitar solo from Jeff Beck.
Jagger said the song (warning: profanity in the video) was about this year’s presidential race, saying this year’s candidates “have to strategize a bit.” The song was not censored by NBC – “SNL” airs during the safe harbor of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., which the Federal Communications Comissions has deemed an OK time for broadcasters to air indecent material.
What did you think of the song, “SNL” fans? We can all at least agree the guitar solo was totally rockin’, right?
