Watch “Weird Al” Yankovic cover Foo Fighters

And it wasn't a parody...

“Weird Al” Yankovic covered Foo Fighters during a live show earlier this month.

The parody legend played a show in San Diego, California on May 12, taking on the Foos’ 1995 debut single ‘This Is A Call’ during the encore.

“We’ve never played this one before, so cut us some little slack,” Yankovic told the crowd before performing the cover.


“Weird Al” famously released a parody of Nirvana‘s ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ called ‘Smells Like Nirvana’ back in 1992.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl recently revealed that he “still can’t listen to Nirvana” after the pain of losing Kurt Cobain.

“For years I couldn’t even listen to any music, let alone a Nirvana song,” Grohl told GQ. “When Kurt died, every time the radio came on, it broke my heart. I don’t put Nirvana records on, no. Although they are always on somewhere. I get in the car, they’re on. I go into a shop, they’re on. For me, it’s so personal.”

“I remember everything about those records; I remember the shorts I was wearing when we recorded them or that it snowed that day. Still, I go back and find new meanings to Kurt’s lyrics,” he continued.
