The World's Most Expensive Cover Band Strikes Again

Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters often joke about themselves being the "World's Most Expensive ****-ing Cover Band," and, night after night, that tends to play out when the Foos mix in random covers amongst their myriad hits. You may remember the Foos bringing out Rick-Goddamn-Astley in the flesh to bring rick-rolling to an unseen level. That being said, last night was a whole new level of strange for the Foos.

As the Foos did their thing last night in Jacksonville, they broke out into a cover of "You're The One That I Want" from the 1978-movie Grease, which isn't really that odd, even for them...until John Travolta makes a brief appearance.

His appearance was only brief (He didn't even sing, the bastard!), but Travolta sauntered out on stage and waved to the crowd, who went predictably wild. As Travolta walked back off stage, dancing to the Foos, Grohl had to cut the song short because it was, admittedly, "Too much, man."
