On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon co-hosted The Tonight Show with Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters mastermind/film director/all-around insatiably busy living legend — and the pair got into some supreme silliness on the program.

Here’s the opening monologue, for example:

Later, they played a variation of Name That Tune, with house band The Roots serving as the backing group providing the cues:

In a particularly amusing bit, Grohl stepped up to perform the song “Best Of You.” But, in a twist designed to satisfy the demands of the internet, he repeated “The best, the best” for a few minutes (recreating a YouTube clip that has more or less become a meme):

Here’s a bit about old commercial jingles from the ’90s:

Here’s Grohl talking about catching his mother, Virginia, drinking with Green Day:

This madness is just the latest gig for Dave Grohl, whose Foo Fighters are part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021 (marking Grohl’s second induction, the first coming with Nirvana). In addition to that,  his documentary What Drives Us recently premieredhis official memoir is coming out in October, he collaborated with Mick Jagger on a new song, while his collaboration with his mother, Virginia, on a new docu-series, is out now:

In each episode, the chosen performers of the hour (and Mom), joined by Dave and Virginia, go back home to discuss the path that took them to where they are today. Here’s the schedule of episodes, per Deadline:

● May 6: Dan Reynolds (of Imagine Dragons) and Christene Reynolds

● May 13: Pharrell and Dr. Carolyn Williams

● May 20: Miranda and Bev Lambert

● May 27: Brandi and Teresa Carlile

● June 3: Tom Morello (of Rage Against the Machine) and Mary Morello

● June 10: Geddy Lee (of Rush) and Mary Weinrib

“I believe that the relationship between a musician and their mother is so important because it’s the foundation of their understanding of love, which is surely every artist’s greatest muse,” said Grohl. “Having the opportunity to travel the country and tell the stories of these amazing women behind the curtain not only shed some light on the music that they inspired, but also made me appreciate the love that I was given from my own mother, my best friend. It goes without saying that we are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music.”

The Foo Fighters will also, at some point, announce a big tour in support of their Feb. 2021 album, Medicine at Midnight.
