Last night's SNL was the last to feature Fred Armisen, who's been a member of the cast for 11 seasons. His final sketch was a performance as his British punk rock alter ego Ian Rubbish.

For the second half of the song, Fred brought out a bunch of his coolest indie rock friends.

From the left, that's Aimee Mann, Michael Penn, Steve Jones from The Sex Pistols, Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag (and Portlandia!), J. Mascis from Dinosaur Jr., and Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth.
