Foo Fighters Perform All Covers Gig, Here Is The Setlist

Putting the pedal to the Chevy Meta

“I’m just a rhythm guitar player in this band, but Taylor makes me sing once in a while.” So says Dave Grohl, goof off guitarist with Foo Fighters’ drummer Taylor Hawkins and his side project, Chevy Meta. Saturday Chevy Neta were performing at  Conejo Valley Days in Thousand Oaks in Cali when Grohl and Foo lead guitarist  Chris Shiflett joined them for a 19 song all covers set.

But look at it this way, it could be worse, they could have been performing all FF songs…

The setlist was an interesting mish mash of 70s rockers and not much else given with the bands penchant for being the most boring bunch of bastards you’ve ever gotten stuck at a bus stop with. I have a ticket to catch them at the inspirationally named Citifield on July 16th, where instead of this album I will have to suffer through the atrocious 2014 Sonic Highways, an album that disappeared in a whisp after as much publicity (an entire HBO series-I wonder which exec is a Nirvana fan?) as is humanly possible. The reason being, the album was a stinker even by the Foo’s minimal standards, 2011’s Wasting Light wasn’t great but it was Abbey Road compared to Sonic Highways. Those of us about to rock fall asleep.

Here is the covers setlist:

School’s Out (Alice Cooper cover)
Little T&A (The Rolling Stones cover)
Everybody Wants Some!! (Van Halen cover)

You May Be Right (Billy Joel cover)
Hurts So Good (John Mellencamp cover)
Miss You (The Rolling Stones cover)
My Sharona (The Knack cover)
