On Monday night at the charity concert ‘Cancer For College’ in Seattle, the aforementioned musicians were joined by the likes of Dave Matthews Band’s Stefan Lessard and folk artist Brandi Carlile to perform the track.
The band were going under the moniker of ‘One Classy Night’ in order to raise money for cancer survivors in need of scholarships. The event raised $300,000 for the non-profit charity, reports Spin.

Meanwhile, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith jokingly stormed off stage recently after a heckler noted his much-publicised resemblance to actor Will Ferrell.
Moments after the fan dared to shout Ferrell’s name at him, Smith immediately departed with a Step Brothers-esque shout of ‘SHUT UP!’ before eventually returning to confront his chief heckler.
Will Ferrell recently revived his George W. Bush impression to host SNL. He joked during his cold open: ““I know what you’re thinking: What the heck is this handsome devil doing back in the Oval Office? Well, the truth is, this is just a set,” Ferrell said, in full Bush attire. “I had it built in my basement in Texas so I could pretend to still be president sometimes.”
