The concert did not include any new material from the Foo Fighters’ upcoming album Sonic Highways.
Dave Grohl, Gwen Stefani, 50 Cent, Alanis Morissette, Fergie were among the artists parodying ‘We Are The World’ as they sent off the late night host.
With the help of his fellow Foo Fighters and a little movie magic, Grohl takes on the role of Carrie White, from the classic horror movie based on Stephen King’s first novel.
If the first few seconds of the Foo Fighters upcoming new record — a measly eight — let fans know anything it’s that Dave Grohl and the guys can definitely still rock.
With bands of a certain stature, the announcement of the announcement has become a part of the tradition. So, the Foo Fighters posting on Facebook that Monday will see big news is just part of the game.
A new Foo Fighters album grows ever closer, accompanied by an HBO series in October — and according to Dave Grohl, it’ll be a nice alternative to the singing competitions of today.
“We’re doing things that we’ve never done before. And I want to say that it’s only eight songs but I think it might be our longest record because, as I was writing these songs, I had to take a cinematic approach,” Dave Grohl said.
