Watch Stone Temple Pilots’ 1993 ‘Saturday Night Live’ Rehearsal Footage

When it comes to the long-running late night program Saturday Night Live, you typically get to see an act perform two songs, each typically running several minutes. But new video has surfaced allowing viewers to be a fly on the wall at the rehearsals for Stone Temple PilotsSaturday Night Live appearance in 1993. You can watch the full 37-minute long rehearsal above.

Over the course of the pre-show stage time, the band work through such songs as “Naked Sunday” and “Creep,” both of which ended up airing during the regular show. They also perform an early take of the song “Hollywood Bitch,” a track that wouldn’t surface on an album until 2001’s Shangri-La-Dee-Da disc. That clocks in around the 27-minute mark.

The performance would come right in the midst of the band’s breakout during promotion of their Core album. And the performance of “Creep,” which would be the final single from Core, suggests that it was toward the end of the album cycle. The band would release their Purple album the following year.

According to Alternative Nation, audio of the rehearsals has surfaced online before, but this marks the first video representation from the rehearsals.
