The Foo Fighters may not have had the best time with James Corden and his Carpool Karaoke. It appears a few hours of filming had made the FoofFighters and James Corden interaction a bit “awkward.”
According to Music-News, the Foo Fighters became a part of James Corden’s sketch last September (this year). It involves James Corden and the Foo Fighters signing along famous songs or their own hits as they cruised around Los Angeles.
Interestingly, the footage was a hit for fans. It sees members of the band such as Taylor Hawkins, Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Rami Jaffee, and Chris Shiflett enjoying their time with Corden. However, they admitted it wasn’t as authentic as they wanted it to be.
They said it’s not exactly as “fun” when they had to spend around three hours in the shoot. By the time they reached Guitar Centre, it was actually still just halfway through the entire thing.
Dave Grohl, who was also the frontman of the band, said it was a bit uncomfortable for him.
However, he did praise Corden and his enthusiasm and passion for the entire music industry.
Interestingly, Grohl said he was a bit embarrassed singing his own songs to a person beside him, and would rather have himself singing tracks of other famous artists. In fact, they actually covered some songs from Rick Astley and the Ramones. Unfortunately, they weren’t included in the final cut.
Carpool Karaoke with James Corden, A Little Foo Fighters History
The Foo Fighters were a rock band based in Seattle. The American band was formed in 1994, founded by Dave Grohl back when Nirvana was recently disbanded. It can be remembered that Nirvana broke up when Kurt Cobain had passed away. The Foo Fighters got their name from UFOs and other types of aerial circumstances World War 2 pilots under the Allies have reported.
Their debut album, Foo Fighters, only featured Grohl as the member. The lead then recruited Nate Mendel for bass, William Goldsmith for drums, and Pat Smear from Nirvana’s touring team to finish the lineup. They initially began performing in Oregon.
