Dave Grohl Joins Jimmy Fallon As Co-Host Of ‘The Tonight Show’


Dave Grohl served as a co-host on “The Tonight Show” on Monday night (May 24) alongside Jimmy Fallon.

Dave joined Jimmy for an entertaining series of segments, as well as an interview to help promote his new TV series “From Cradle To Stage.”

“You know Dave, if things go well here, this could be the big break you’ve been waiting for,” Fallon said, bringing the Foo Fighters frontman to the stage.

“I’m really happy to be here,” Grohl said. “This is one of the coolest things that I’ve done. today.” Nah, of course not, he explained. “I was in Nirvana.”

Fallon and Dave discussed about Covid cases in the U.S., re-opening of businesses, Phil Mickelson’s historic PGA Championship win and Timothée Chalamet being cast to play a young Willy Wonka in an upcoming Warner Bros. feature.

During the show, Grohl sang Foo Fighters’ “Best of You” in the style of a glitchy Rickroll meme. He also spoke about his tight schedule and friends.

“We do have a saying in the Foo Fighters, ‘if it gets any better it’s going to get worse.’ I don’t like to rehearse. Because I like to get out on stage and for it to be raw and real so it’s not like a big choreographed thing,” Grohl said about the band’s work ethic.

During the latter part of the episode, Grohl sand old jingles, wearing dodgy clothes and wigs. Grohl and Fallon also played a quiz game called, “Off Songs, Song Off,” that saw them trying to guess songs played by house band The Roots.
