Monday Sabbath: Watch Foo Fighters and Zac Brown rip through ‘War Pigs’ on Letterman


Current rock royalty Foo Fighters kicked off a week-long residency on the Late Show With David Letterman last night, and they did so in grand fashion: by jamming out with Dave Grohl collaborator Zac Brown for a cover of Black Sabbath’s rock classic, “War Pigs.”

Watch the video below via Youtube. Yes, there are four guitars up there, but you could probably tell that just from listening.

Letterman pretty much summed it up at the end of the performance.


“Well there, you see, that’s what we’re talking about,” Letterman says. “Nice going. Okay. Zac Brown. Black Sabbath. Foo Fighters. I don’t know, what do you kids want from me?”

Prior to getting on stage, Grohl got on the couch to discuss his eight-year-old daughter’s musical taste, his upcoming Sonic Highways HBO television series, and some advice his father gave him in the early-’90s. “When Nirvana became popular, my father called and said, ‘You know this isn’t going to last, right?’,” Grohl says, via a fantastic Rolling Stone recap of each discussion. “And I said, ‘No, of course, I can’t imagine this would last at all.’ But then he gave me lots of really great advice.”

Tonight brings another adventure, we’re sure.
