Foo Fighters played a special unplugged gig at Apple's iPhone 5 launch earlier today (September 12) in California - watch footage of 'Times Like These' below.

After an all new iTunes system and brand new 'ultra-thin' iPod touch and iPod nanos were revealed, Dave Grohl and the rest of the band took to the stage.

"One of the incredible things about being here is that you're meeting people who are shaping our future," said Dave Grohl, according to the Guardian.

"And just like Little Richard, Tom Petty, Jimmy Page, these are just people who took it upon themselves to change our future, but you meet them and they're people! And this one's dedicated to all those people."

As well as launching the new iPhone, the event also saw Apple reveal a redesigned iTunes, with a new player and iCloud integration. The new iTunes comes this October and will be available as a free download.

Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services said: "The new iTunes works seamlessly with iCloud, always keeping your entire library at your fingertips, and we're adding great new features that make listening to your music more fun."

The new iPods will be available in October and pre-orders open on September 14. Prices range from £129 to £249. They will come with the new Apple EarPods, redesigned headphones which have, according to Apple a "breakthrough design for a more natural fit, increased durability and an incredible acoustic quality typically reserved for higher-end earphones."
