“It’s nice to come here and be with my friends Big Bird and Elmo,” the Foo Fighters frontman says. “You know, I was just thinking, there’s friends everywhere, even ones that you don’t know.”
Big Bird asks, “How can you have friends that you don’t know?” Grohl explains, “I just mean there’s lots of people all across America we could be friends with, we just haven’t met them yet.”
The trio then embark on a trip around the U.S., “from our street, to your street,” where they traverse cities, deserts, mountains and other locales. “Here we go/We’re on our way/New adventure every day,” they sing. “Gonna try new foods and learn new names/Sing new songs/And play new games.”
Sesame Street marks its 50th anniversary this year with the new season launching on Saturday. Grohl also recently teamed with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins for “Middle Child” and the video for “I Really Blew It,” which also features Perry Farrell. Both tracks appear on Taylor Hawkins & the Coattail Riders’ new album, Get the Money.
