Watch Vampire Weekend Perform ‘Gen-X Cops’ and ‘Capricorn’ on ‘SNL’

    Vampire Weekend were the musical guests on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, where they performed ‘Gen-X Cops’ and ‘Capricorn’ from their latest album Only God Was Above Us. Watch it below.

    The performance marked the band’s fourth time appearing on the show. They performed ‘A-Punk’ and ‘M79’ from their self-titled debut in 2008, ‘Cousins’ and ‘Giving Up the Gun’ from Contra in 2010, and ‘Diane Young’ and ‘Unbelievers’ from Modern Vampires of the City in 2013. Only God Was Above Us, their fifth album, came out last month.
