Watch Foo Fighters Perform a Powerful Cover of Rush’s ‘Tom Sawyer’

Dave Grohl and his bandmates paid homage to the classic arena-rock gods in Rio de Janeiro

Foo Fighters recently performed an ace cover of Rush’s 1981 classic, “Tom Sawyer,” during a set at Rio de Janeiro’s Estadio Do Maracanã. (Fun fact: Foo performed that exact track with the prog-rock legends during their 2013 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.) Even more impressive: Taylor Hawkins drumming on a substantially smaller kit than anything Neil Peart ever touched. Well done, Taylor. Watch the fan-shot clip above.
