WATCH: Foo Fighters Cover Black Sabbath, Melt Faces

Foo Fighters

Foo Fighters began their week-long residency on the Late Show with David Letterman last night and to viewers’ delighted surprise the band covered the heavy metal behemoth of a track — “War Pigs.” Originally composed and released by Black Sabbath in 1970, “War Pigs” is a politically-charged, giant and downright classic metal song…and Foo Fighters nailed it (along with a lackadaisical and somewhat out of place Zac Brown).

“Ahhhh, my God,” Letterman exclaimed when the track ended.

In case you missed it yesterday, the band released a trailer for their new HBO show, Sonic Highways, which begins later this week. The eight-track record of the same name is due out Nov. 10 on Roswell Records. Keep your eyes glued to Letterman this week as it’s quite possible Dave Grohl and co. are only getting the week-long shenanigans started.
