Looks like the Foo Fighters didn’t have the best, the best, the best, the best time on “Carpool Karaoke.”
The rockers reportedly couldn’t wait for their James Corden segment to be over when they hopped on the road with the late night host last month — frontman Dave Grohl even called it “a little uncomfortable.”
“By hour three in dude’s car it got less fun,” guitarist Pat Smear told NME. “It kinda went on. When we stopped at Guitar Center, that felt like we were done, but it was like, ‘This is halfway.’”
The Foo Fighters went all out in singing their hit song “Best of You” with Corden and even made a pit-stop at Guitar Center.

However, everything looks a lot better on TV (and YouTube), according to the guys. They told NME they would have been much more inclined to sing hits by other artists.
“He’s a very nice guy. But y’know, I don’t mind singing my own songs at Glastonbury or The O2, but if I had to sing you a song right now I’d be too embarrassed,” Grohl told NME.
The band said they also performed songs by The Ramones and Rick Astley, but CBS didn’t use the footage.
