The Foo Fighters spent the past week at The Late Show with David Letterman in anticipation of the premiere of Sonic Highways, their new HBO series, and the release of their brand new single, "Something From Nothing." The band performed the song on television for the first time Friday night. Watch the video below.

Top Ten Things Foo Fighters Would Like To Say After Spending a Week at the Late Show

The TV debut of the song was impeccable. The band's performance of "Something From Nothing" was marked by stellar musicianship and passionate playing. Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen, who also played on the album version of the track, came out midway through and joined the band for the rest of the song, before Dave Grohl's throat-shredding vocals brought the tune to an epic close.

The Foos also helped Letterman out with a top ten list called "Top Ten Things Foo Fighters Would Like To Say After Spending a Week at the Late Show." The segment was a charming way to end the late night residency and featured a touching moment between guitarist Pat Smear and Late Show announcer Alan Kalter. Watch the hilarious clip above.

Listen to the record version of "Something From Nothing" here at Zumic and pre-order Sonic Highways via Amazon.
