Bob Mould, Joan Jett Join Foos @ MSG
Last night, the Foo Fighters headlined Madison Square Garden, and they trotted out a couple of serious rock O.G.s during the encore. First off, Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould joined them to help out on “Dear Rosemary,” his recent collaboration with the band, and they followed that by covering Tom Petty’s “Breakdown.” (No Hüsker song, though, sadly.) And when that was done, the band played backup for Joan Jett, blasting through her deathless classic “Bad Reputation.” Watch videos of those collabs below.
These days, it’s always a bit disappointing to hear “Bad Reputation” and then realize that an episode of Freaks & Geeks is not about to immediately follow it.
