Foo Fighters brought the Halloween flavor to Studio 8H in the spirits of Spooktober.

According to Billboard, in a shot leading to their first Saturday Night Live musical performance on October 28, all the band members dressed up as the main characters giving a nod to the 1939 classic film, Wizard Of Oz.

The rockers enjoyed the transition so much that they even shared their creative costumes on their official Instagram page.

The SNL was hosted by Nate Bargatze, who was joined by Foo Fighters were present as the musical guests.

The band kicked off the stage with the hard rocking track Rescued, followed by the emotional track The Glass accompanied by H.E.R. –helping with the vocals and guitar.

Despite donning the Wizard of Oz characters for the social media post, the group didn’t rock their costumes while on stage.
