The long-running NBC late-night show once brought a star who was more of a trainwreck as a host, and seemingly thought it would be a great idea to have a drama-free musician for the episode.

Everyone knows that the 2012 Lindsay Lohan was like America's favorite trainwreck. The "Mean Girls" alum had less-than-impressive year at the time after she was charged with a DUI and necklace-nabbing in the year before. And when she made a "comeback" by hosting "SNL" in early March, the show seemed to think that Jack White was the best option for the musical guest for the said episode.

Many thought that "SNL" indirectly made fun of LiLo, who poked fun at herself during several of her skits, by tapping the lead singer and guitarist of the duo The White Stripes. Unlike LiLo, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer made his way through the world with a barely-controlled contempt for pop culture and its celebrity fixation.
