Foo Fighters in Carpool Karaoke

Dave Grohl and co. have revealed that shooting James Corden's famous segment was "a little uncomfortable" and "kinda went on".

Foo Fighters have dished the dirt on shooting Carpool Karaoke, and suggested it's a lot less fun than it looks.

The Run rockers made their appearance on the show last month, singing a selection of their greatest hits and stopping at a guitar shop so James Corden could audition for the band. 

“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 Centre, that felt like we were done, but it was like ‘this is halfway.'"

After Smear said that “singing other people’s songs would have been easier”, Grohl added: “I could do that all day. We did The Ramones, and Rick Astley, but they didn’t use it. I don’t know why.”

“I said, I think it’s on ‘Fighters’. He said [adopts low, growling voice that’s perfect Walken], That’s what I thought…”
