Foo Fighters Rock Cover Of 'Molly's Lips' In Scotland
(Radio.com) Although he was the drummer in one of the biggest rock bands of the past quarter century, Dave Grohl has mostly steered clear of the Nirvana catalog at Foo Fighters concerts. Other than "Marigold," a Nirvana B-side that he wrote and sung (and which didn't feature Kurt Cobain), Grohl has never played any Nirvana material in his current band.
That changed for a few seconds on Tuesday night, as the Foo Fighters played in Edinburgh, Scotland, the hometown of legendary punk band the Vaselines.
Nirvana covered that band's classic "Molly's Lips," and on Tuesday night the Foo Fighters played it as well, adding it to the long list of covers they've done on this tour, along with Queen and David Bowie's "Under Pressure," and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "Breakdown." Read more here.
