Foo Fighters Inspire Non-Stop Air-Drumming on ‘Carpool Karaoke’: Watch
Foo Fighters had the entire van air-drumming when they appeared on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke on Wednesday night (Sept. 20).
Dave Grohl and company piled into one vehicle for the latest installation of the series, which aired during The Late Late Show with James Corden. The Foos sang along to a few of their hits, including “All My Life,” “Best of You” and “Learn to Fly.”
In the same week as the release of their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold, the Foos also performed new single “The Sky is a Neighborhood,” after which bassist Nate Mendel reacted saying, “There’s a lot of words in that song,” a takeaway Corden found hilarious.
Grohl asks Corden if he is an actual drummer, to which the host boasts, “I’d kick both you’re a–es, ’cause rhythm moves within me. I’ve never really picked up the sticks but I don’t consider it to be an issue. ‘Cause what is drumming? It’s a feeling.” Grohl suggests a proper audition, and the entire crew rolls into a Guitar Center to play drums side by side. Spoiler alery: Corden pales in comparison to Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The video concludes with the entire band Rick-rolling an unsuspecting crowd of fans, performing Rick Astley’s “Give You Up” with Corden on vocals.
Foo Fighters have announced a lengthy tour in support of Concrete and Gold, with support from Queens of the Stone Age in South America, and Weezer in Australia and New Zealand. Find the full list of tour dates and buy tickets here.
