Seven Collaborations Mick Jagger, Arcade Fire, and Foo Fighters Could Take a Hint From

Saturday Night Live is ending its 37th season with a bang. Last week, classic alum Will Ferrell hosted the show, reprising his parody of George W. Bush, and the 100th SNL Digital Short was aired.

Things look to get even bang-ier with this Saturday's season finale, featuring Mick Jagger taking the reins as both host and musical guest. Jagger won't be performing with The Rolling Stones; instead he's getting a little help from Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters, and possibly Jeff Beck.

The musical legacy of SNL has been hit-and-miss, at best (ahem, Ashlee Simpson and Lana Del Rey; hello, Sinead and that picture of the Pope), but this performance has serious potential. Hopefully, Jagger, Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters, and Beck will be half as great as the following seven collaborations.
