Foo Fighters are David Letterman’s favorite band, so they’ll serve as the final guest when the legendary late-night host’s Late Show tenure ends tonight. Rolling Stone reported the news, though Letterman’s reps declined to comment — tonight’s guest list is supposed to be a surprise. You might recall that the Foos staged a weeklong Letterman residency last October upon the release of Sonic Highways. “Each and every year they grow to mean more to me as human beings and talented musical artists,” Letterman said while introducing the band for a web exclusive last fall. They’re pretty much guaranteed to play “My Hero,” right?
UPDATE: Watch the performance.
