Week in Re-Foo: Foo Fighters take over Letterman

The Foo Fighters have transformed the release of their album/documentary hybrid Sonic Highways into an event. The eight-part series premieres on HBO tonight, followed by a live performance of the band’s lead single, “Something from Nothing.” To prep for that debut, Dave Grohl and the gang have spent the week collaborating with other musicians on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman.

While the Foos will have one final performance tonight, they have already banked five impressive outings. Here they are, ranked from least to most rockin’, based on actual quality, the guest musician, and the level of Grohl in each song.

Taylor Swift and Fall Out Boy to perform at Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Well, these weren’t three things I planned on hearing in the same sentence today: Taylor Swift, Fall Out Boy and lingerie.

Both artists will be performing on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show (lingerie status, unknown), joining the ranks of past performers like Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj. Rising indie pop band A Great Big World, and Neon Jungle, a U.K. girl group who just finished touring with Jessie J, are also on the VS Fashion Show lineup, scheduled to take place this Wednesday at the Lexington Armory in New York.

Jack Sussman, Executive VP Specials and Events at CBS, said of choosing Swift: “If a mad scientist were asked to create the perfect combination of the beauty of a Victoria’s Secret Angel with the ultimate talent and creativity from today’s music scene, the answer would be simple — Taylor Swift.”

Sure, Swift will look right at home with tall, svelte Angels like Adriana Lima and Karlie Kloss, but will she strut down the runway with them like Rihanna did in 2012? Maybe not, but she probably has an easier height differential to deal with than Fall Out Boy.

The Victoria Secret Fashion Show airs December 10th at 10:00 p.m. on CBS.
