Foo Fighters covered several classic rock legends - such as Queen, Rolling Stones and Van Halen - at the recent Firefly Festival. The band headlined the festival in Dover, Delaware on Friday, June 20.

During the band's set, they announced that for a whole 20 minutes they would do only classic rock covers. The songs included Van Halen's "Ain't Talkin' Bout Love," Alice Cooper's "School's Out," the Rolling Stones' "Miss You" and the Queen and David Bowie collab "Under Pressure."

Grohl also teased the band's new album at the fest:

"Just so you know, we've made a new album. We made each song in a different city in America. We did eight songs in eight different cities. Maybe we'll give 'em to you at some point."
