Dave Grohl dedicated the Foo Fighters performance to America’s teachers.
There were many, many performers on Wednesday’s “Celebrating America” inauguration event, including Foo Fighters. Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl started off the performance thanking “teachers everywhere,” including his mother Virginia. Grohl dedicated the song to “all of our unshakable teachers that continue to enlighten our nation’s kids every day.”
The performance of “Times Like These” starts slowly, with just Dave’s vocals and the organ before the full band kicks in later.
Foo Fighters first shared this poignant re-arrangement of “Times Like These” during their Saturday Night Live performance on November 8, just hours after Joe Biden was projected as the winner of the 2020 Presidential Election.
Grohl made headlines earlier this year with an emotional appeal to Americans on behalf of teachers feeling challenged by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Did you watch Foo Fighters on this special? Do you think teachers deserve more credit for what they do?
