Foo Fighters were among the acts inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame during this year’s ceremony over the weekend, alongside the likes of The Go-Go’s, Jay-Z, Carole King, Todd Rundgren and Tina Turner.
Dave Grohl and co. were introduced by Paul McCartney, who pointed out similarities in his and Grohl’s career trajectories during his speech (notably, forming new projects in the wake of their previous bands breaking up as a result of tragic circumstances.)
Following their induction, the band went on to play a medley of hits ‘Best of You’, ‘My Hero’ and ‘Everlong’ before being joined onstage by McCartney. Together, they performed The Beatles‘ 1972 Let It Be cut ‘Get Back’.
“The best thing about being here tonight is being surrounded by our family,” Grohl said during his acceptance speech. “When I say that, I mean, if anybody knows how the Foo Fighters work, the people that we are with and we’ve worked with, it’s been 20, 25, 30 years, and we stick together like a family. I think that’s important, because then you’re doing it together, not just because it’s work, but because you love each other.”
