Fist Fight!

December 12, 2013

Now that’s a wedding band! The brilliant Saturday Night Live skit Band Reunion at the Wedding sees comedians Fred Armisen and Bill Hader team up with Ashton Kutcher and David Grohl as the fictional hardcore band Crisis of Conformity performing their anthem Fist Fight! at Fred’s daughter’s wedding.

In an interview with Papermag, Fred – who’s an old punker that played drums in Trenchmouth and handled vocals in the KGB – admitted both the skit and the song itself was a tribute to Black Flag and Hüsker Dü. “The idea behind it was to write a love letter to my teenage years, to all the bands that I grew up listening to.” Yeah, I figured the “Cadena-Norton” sign was more than a weird coincidence.

The skit (and song) became a cult hit and Fred later on recorded the track on his own for a 7″ release on Drag City. Check it out below and get your copy here.
