Foo Fighters have lots of respect for the great artists who have come before, whether that’s Bee Gees, Van Halen, or the Fraggles. That’s right, Dave Grohl and friends perform alongside their esteemed muppet peers in the new music video for “Fraggle Rock Rock.”
The Foos unveiled the song last month to coincide with the debut of Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock on Apple TV+. The video finds them sharing the stage — or trying to, at any rate, because some of these Fraggles aren’t very good at ceding the spotlight. Occasional tussle aside, everyone seems to be having fun, as you can see in the video below.
Foo Fighters aren’t the only humans who will be venturing to Fraggle Rock. During the 13-episode run, Patti LaBelle performs “Shine on Us Now (Moon Come Soon),” Cynthia Erivo plays “Chase the Wind,” and Daveed Diggs instructs the Fraggles to “Go with the Flow.”
Up here in the land of the humans, Foo Fighters have big plans for Super Bowl Sunday, when they’ll be performing a virtual reality concert in Facebook’s metaverse. The band’s feature film horror-comedy Studio 666 will haunt theaters beginning February 25th, and they have also been announced as headliners for upcoming festivals including Boston Calling, New Orleans Jazz Fest, Beale Street Music Festival, and Welcome to Rockville. In May, they’re embarking on a North American tour, and you can snag your tickets here.
