Dave Grohl got back on stage with some of his Foo Fighters bandmates this weekend and played the David Bowie + Queen hit "Under Pressure" ... AND IT WAS AWESOME!!!

Grohl was performing at the Costa Mesa Fairgrounds with Chevy Metal -- a band featuring Foo drummer Taylor Hawkins and Foo guitarist Chris Shiflett.

The band also performed a bunch of other covers ... including Van Halen’s “Panama" and "My Sharona" by The Knack ... but their performance of "Under Pressure" was the highlight.

Check it out.

That performance was not "epic".
More like "decent" & they get credit for not butchering the song.

Sad how some of you struggle with comprehension - all this talk about being misled by the title and some implication that the Foo Fighters broke up.

The headline reads that Dave Grohl reunited with Foo Fighters bandmates, which is precisely what he did considering the group is off tour and between records.

It didn't state that he reunited with FORMER bandmates. The article said 'bandmates'.

The real misleading part of the article is the implication that Grohl fronted the song and tore it up, as he's generally known as a frontman in his post-Nirvana career.

Grohl rode shotgun here as Taylor Hawkins sang the majority of the tune and bass player Wiley Hodgden pretty much sang the rest. DG added some falsetto and banged around on his guitar.

Chevy Metal is a pretty good cover band. Nikki Sixx recently jammed with them for a couple Motley Crue songs. I was pretty impressed. The singer sounded awesome and the guitarist was awesome too.
