The Foo Fighters has impressed Ellen DeGeneres and their fans after they performed "The Line" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The song is lifted from the band's Concrete and Gold album.
Prior to the band's performance, host DeGeneres first introduced Foo Fighters as the coolest rock band in the world. Immediately after the introduction, the band broke into a memorable performance of "The Line."
The track, which is the third song from Concrete and Gold, was released by Foo Fighters before the full album. The first two songs the band dropped were "Run" and "The Sky Is A Neighborhood."
Other songs in the album are "T-Shirt," "Make It Right," "La Dee Da," "Dirty Water," "Arrows," "Happy Ever After (Zero Hour)," "Sunday Rain," and "Concrete and Gold."
Dave Grohl Opens Up About Foo Fighters
Last year, Dave Grohl, the band's frontman, talked about Foo Fighters's evolving music. He said that he initially vowed to just record and perform rock hits until he is 33 years old. Fast forward to present time, Grohl is already 49 years old, but he is still rocking out.
"I remember being 26 and saying I'm not gonna do this past 33. Now I'll be 50 in a year and a half. I never thought I'd end up at a rock festival with f***** gray hair in my beard, but it happened. And I'm cool with it," said Grohl.
During the same interview, the frontman said that he and his bandmates still enjoy listening to up and coming bands. They believe that there is a whole new generation of artists waiting to come out and because of this, Grohl is worried that Foo Fighters will become a heritage act. To avoid this, they continue to prove and improve themselves.
"Our formula is pretty simple. When you put us in a room, it sounds like the band. So the challenge is to figure out how that evolves," said Grohl.
Foo Fighters North American Tour
Other than the band's performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Foo Fighters also made headlines for their North American tour in support of Concrete and Gold. Last week, Grohl invited a young fan on stage to play the drums during their show in Nashville.
The 8-year-old boy seemingly overstayed his welcome onstage when he did not stop performing even after Grohl asked him to.
"He's still going... Can I have my concert back?" said Grohl.
The frontman also called out to the young fan's dad and told him that they are not in daycare at the moment.
