WATCH: Foo Fighters perform on late night TV with LGBT music faves Joan Jett, Bob Mould

The Foo Fighters continue to make the late night TV scene with some big time queer music faves. They appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday night rocking the hell out of Joan Jett‘s “Bad Reputation.” This was a sort of encore performance from the band’s sold out show at Madison Square Garden Sunday where Jett joined in on the Foo action.

In September, the band appeared on Conan show, performing with former Husker Du and Sugar frontman Bob Mould.Where Jett stands on her own in the first, Mould blends in quite comfortably with the Foos. And with good reason. The band has given big time props during their career and he partook in the recording of the Foo Fighters’ latest album Wasting Light.

“I think since Day One, we were ahead of our time, mixing these electronic elements and rock,” bisexual singer Maja Ivarsson says. “But the industry wondered what we were. Later, The Killers and MGMT broke out. We know for sure they were influenced by us and that’s a compliment.”

Appearances on the Warped Tour increased exposure, and celebrities like Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl hyped them up. Even Geico picked up one of their songs, “Hurt You,” for a commercial. They are straddling the line right now between blowing up and indie cred. And their song “Something to Die For” featured prominently on the Scream 4 soundtrack didn’t hurt either.
