Foo Fighters recently appeared in James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke: The Series. With the group’s known sense of humor, we enjoyed watching them sing along to their own classics. The songs covered included “All My Life,” and “Best of You” in addition to one of their latest singles “The Sky is a Neighborhood,” taken from their new album Concrete and Gold. While everything appeared to be fun and games, the band told NME about their “a little uncomfortable” experience.
Guitarist Pat Smear expressed:
“By hour three in dude’s car it got less fun. It kinda went on. When we stopped at Guitar Centre, that felt like we were done, but it was like ‘this is halfway’.”
Grohl admired Corden’s love for music, however, but not the up-close and personal nature of the series:
“Oh he definitely is [a music lover]. And he’s a very nice guy. But y’know, I don’t mind singing my own songs at Glastonbury or The O2 but if I had to sing you a song right now I’d be too embarrassed.”
Later, Grohl revealed they sang-along to other songs including hits by The Ramones, but it didn’t make it to the final cut:
“We did The Ramones, and Rick Astley, but they didn’t use it. I don’t know why.”
