Foo Fighters took part in the festivities last night during the Inauguration, joining the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi with performances to mark the occasion.
Dave Grohl prefaced an alternate take of the hit "Times Like These" by taking a moment to thank school teachers who faced an unprecedented challenge this past year in the face of the pandemic. The thanks including Mackenzie Adams, the kindergarten teacher who went viral for her enthusiastic virtual lessons and who introduced the band. Grohl, of course, grew up with his mother Virginia who was a public school teacher for 35 years.
The band played a revamped version of the One by One single, lead by Rami Jaffee's organ. "Teachers everywhere, thank you. This is in your honor."
