After a triumphant performance of their new song ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ at the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief at Madison Square Garden, one-time Nirvana members Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear again joined forces with Beatles legend Paul McCartney to perform the song during last night’s episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’

Like they did during the 12-12-12 show, the musical collective rocked out a rousing rendition of the tune, which appears on the soundtrack to Dave Grohl’s upcoming ‘Sound City’ documentary. In fact, the studio version is already available on iTunes in advance of the release of the soundtrack and the film.

The ‘SNL’ performance features McCartney delivering a powerful wail over a monster riff by Smear, while Grohl crushes it on the drums and Novoselic provides a thumping low-end.

The ‘Sound City’ documentary will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival in February, while the film’s soundtrack will drop on March 12. Check out the ‘SNL’ performance below:
