Watch Dave Grohl join Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Beck for political fundraiser

Karen O shouted "I'm ready to win!" before launching into 'Heads Will Roll'

Dave Grohl temporarily joined the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Beck at a recent political event, ahead of the US midterm elections.

The Foo Fighters frontman hopped on the drums for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ monster hit ‘Heads Will Roll’ at The Last Weekend gig. The event was organised by Swing Left, a grassroots network of volunteers canvassing for Democrat candidates ahead of the elections on Tuesday (November 6).

Before launching into ‘Heads Will Roll’, Karen O said: “I just wanted to say that I’m so happy to be here and support the swing left.


“Are you ready to fucking win on Tuesday? Because I’m ready to win!”

Watch footage of the performance below:

Martha and Rufus Wainwright, Moby, The Bird and The Bee and actor Adam Scott were also on the bill.

Grohl – the busiest man in rock – also accompanied Beck for a special performance of ‘Where It’s At’, that included Chic’s ‘Good Times’, watch the video below.


This isn’t the first time that Beck and Grohl have teamed up for Swing Left, they also performed together at a fundraiser in September.

Grohl has been fiercely critical of Trump’s presidency, admitting that he is “ashamed” of the commander-in-chief. However, earlier this year, he ruled out ever running for the US presidency in 2020.

Grohl’s collab with Beck came during a rare moment of downtime during a hectic year of touring with Foo Fighters. He recently revealed that he embarks on an extensive drinking routine before heading to the stage.

In October, Foo Fighters surprised fans with an appearance at Metallica’s sold out show. Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl were filmed backstage by comedian Jim Breuer, who opened for Metallica. Grohl also invited a 10-year-old blind child to play his guitar during a Foo Fighters gig in Minnesota.
