Since news of Stephen Hawking's death was announced on Tuesday night, many reacted expressing their shock and offering tributes.
The cast of The Big Bang Theory and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson tweeted out messages and memories of the British theoretical physicist.
But more unexpected is the message from the Foo Fighters. The band tweeted Hawking's famous quote, "Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet", followed by "RIP Stephen Hawking you f*****g legend."
Hawking's family did not disclose the cause of death, but said that he died peacefully at his home in England.
Despite being a scientist, Hawking made an impact on the cultural landscape.
