While inducting prog-rock overlords Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night, Dave Grohl pondered one of rock’s true mysteries: “When the fuck did Rush become cool? Their legacy is that of a band that stayed true to themselves no matter how uncool they seemed to anyone. Rush have always been cool! Consider this mystery solved and it’s our honor to finally induct Rush into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.”
The Foos then donned their ’70s Rush kimonos and performed “Overture”, off Rush’s seminal 2112 album. Further proving just how cool they are, the actual Rush then joined the duo for rousing versions of the equally-classic “Tom Sawyer” and “The Spirit of Radio”.
