In the latest episode of "Saturday Night Live," the popular American comedy show took a playful jab at the band Imagine Dragons, humorously labeled by some as "the worst band ever."

The show's 'Weekend Update' segment, hosted by Colin Jost, introduced a spoof musical group named Remember Lizards, portrayed by cast members Andrew Dismukes and James Austin Johnson.

Christian-curious positive arena rock

The parody centered around the humorous similarities between Remember Lizards and Imagine Dragons. The skit described their music as a blend of “uplifting kid-friendly hip-hop slash arena rock with a pumped-up edge,” a comical nod to Imagine Dragons’ signature style.

However, Remember Lizards claimed their unique twist was producing “explicitly Christian uplifting arena rock,” compared to Imagine Dragons’ “Christian-curious positive arena rock.”

The segment reached its comedic peak when Remember Lizards performed a song titled ‘Chemical (Poison)’, a playful imitation of Imagine Dragons’ hit ‘Believer’.

The parody was not lost on host Colin Jost, who quipped, “I couldn’t remember what Imagine Dragons sounded like, but then I heard you do a worse version of it.”

This light-hearted parody on "Saturday Night Live" adds to the ongoing conversation and varied opinions about Imagine Dragons' music and their place in the contemporary music scene.
