Foo Fighters Dominate Rock Grammys was a top 12 rock story of Feb. 2012: The Grammy Awards have never really been about rock, America's best selling genre of music. But there were some big names in rock who performed on Sunday.

The show's big finale was led by Paul McCartney with a medley of "Golden Slumbers"/"Carry That Weight"/"The End," where he was joined by Foo Fighters Dave Grohl, The Eagles Joe Walsh, Rusty Anderson, and Bruce Springsteen.

When it came to rock awards at the Grammy Awards, the Foo Fighters ruled the night winning five of Grammys on Sunday.

The Foo Fighters dominated leading rock categories including Best Rock Album for Wasting Light and Best Rock Performance and Best Rock song for "Walk," Best Hard rock/metal performance for "White Limo," and Best Long-form music video for Foo Fighters: Back and Forth.

McCartney also performed a rendition of his new ballad, "My Valentine," from his forthcoming standards album, Kisses On The Bottom where he was joined by Diana Krall on piano, guitarist Joe Walsh, and a full orchestra.
