Last night the National, everybody’s favorite bunch of wine-soaked sad-sacks, brought their trademark brand of black anti-humor to Saturday Night Live, performing a pair of songs from last year’s Trouble Will Find Me. The episode was hosted by Lena Dunham, meaning in short that people who lived on both coasts were ecstatic, the middle of the country was confused, and Twitter — a country unto itself — got to vent its collective head-exploding rage in one glorious 90-minute burst. Watch the band perform “Graceless” and the beautiful “I Need My Girl” below.
