Alt-rock heads re­joice: Former White Stripes front­man Jack White is set to re­place up-and-com­ing coun­try star Morgan Wallen as the mu­si­cal guest on “Satur­day Night Live” this week­end.

On Wed­nes­day, “SNL” can­celed Wallen af­ter TikTok footage sur­faced of Wallen par­ty­ing in tightly packed crowds with­out a mask af­ter a Univer­sity of Alabama foot­ball game.

The “7 Sum­mers” singer broke safety pro­to­col put in place by the show to pro­tects its cast, staff and guests from the novel coro­n­avirus.

“It prob­a­bly isn’t the first coun­try singer, the first per­son from rock and roll, who par­tied af­ter, in that case, a foot­ball game,” “SNL” pro­ducer Lorne Michaels said on NBC’S “To­day” show. “But we’re just liv­ing in a dif­fer­ent time, and every­thing is scru­ti­nized.”

Michaels con­firmed that White, who has per­formed on the show three times be­fore, will re­turn Satur­day night — and teased the pos­si­bil­ity of ad­di­tional spe­cial guests. White, for his part, re­cently an­nounced a White Stripes great­est hits al­bum, com­ing out Dec. 4.
