Foo Fighters cover AC/DC with help from The Hives

Foo Fighters just keep on being awesome after their latest release of their album 'Concrete and Gold' as they perform a secret gig at the Vasa Teatern in Stockholm, Sweden.

What a better way to start a sick as secret gig than to do a cover of AC/DC "Let There Be Rock". But Dave Grohl doesn't do it alone as he invites The Hives frontman Pelle Almqvist on stage to give him a hand and saying:

“This is how much I fucking love this person and the band this person is in,” before revealing that he once dressed as Almqvist for Halloween. “This person happens to be from this city, so it’s nice to be reunited with him. It’s been a long time.”

He then adds “Tonight I thought it would be a good idea if we did a song together, one that we’ve never played with him before, but I think it makes perfect sense for this show. I’ve always wanted to sing this song.”

But before getting into full rock mode Dave Grohl teases the crowd by playing some chords to Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven" but then stopped and said “Actually, that’s not the right song. The real song sounds like this,” before the band jammed out to AC/DC’s “Let There Be Rock.”

What an awesome gig this would be to watch.
