Frontman Dave Grohl dedicated the performance to “all of our unshakeable teachers that continue to enlighten our nation’s kids every day”.
“This year, our teachers were faced with unprecedented challenges, but through dedication and creativity, they faced those challenges head-on,” Grohl said.
Grohl gave personalised shout-outs to his mother Virginia and the new First Lady, Dr. Jill Biden, both of whom are teachers by trade. He also lauded Mackenzie Adams, a Washington kindergarten teacher whose educational videos went viral during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The band then launched into an initially restrained version of ‘Times Like These’, which built into a thrilling conclusion.
Foo Fighters will release ‘Medicine At Midnight’, their tenth studio album, on February 5. Thus far, the band have shared three tracks from the record in the lead-up to its release: ‘Waiting On A War’, ‘No Son Of Mine‘ and ‘Shame Shame’.
Last week (January 15), Foo Fighters appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, playing ‘Waiting On A War’ live for the first time. They later shared the track’s music video.
