Haim Bring Sisterhood of Rock to 'SNL'

The Cali girls tear through "Don't Save Me" and "The Wire"

The lovely ladies of Haim continued their current quest for world domination by stopping by Saturday Night Live to make their debut appearance as musical guests.

Since dropping their first LP, Days Are Gone, in September, the California sisters have been rocketing up the charts in myriad countries including the U.S.

Just last week, Haim announced a massive world tour—an insane feat for a band so young. But people love them some Haim and last night's performance further solidified their rockstar status.

First up was a very sped up version of the Pat Benatar-esque "Don't Save Me." The girls were visibility nervous, and certainly not at their best, during the rendition. 

The fact that the song was moving like a runaway train couldn't have helped matters; it's difficult to adjust vocals and instruments when the tempo is practically doubled. 

It's hard to tell whether the speed was a planned change-up for the SNL show or an accident. We're thinking accident, but who knows...

Nonetheless, the sister's remained adorable. And let's be honest, it's almost impossible to not enjoy a Haim performance. They could be half-asleep and slurring words and still remain fun to watch.

Next up was their smash hit single, "The Wire." The girls seemed much more relaxed and comfortable on stage here. Plus, the sisters were delightfully animated—each one gets her own verse on the track.

Also, there's Este Haim being Este Haim, making the most awesomely bizarre faces. Speaking of which, check out our gallery dedicated to Este's wonderfully weird facial expressions right here!

Then there's Danielle shredding the hell out of the guitar at the 3:50 mark.

All in all, it was a lovely night out with the girls of Haim. And it doesn't get much better than that.
