Foo Fighters Dedicate Times Like These to Teachers on Celebrating America Inaugural Special – Billboard

Dave Grohl understands just how hard teachers work: As the Foo Fighters frontman said Wednesday night (Jan. 20) on Joe Biden’s Celebrating America primetime inauguration special, his mother, Virginia, was a public school teacher for 35 years. She was “a mentor for her students, remembered long after their graduation,” Grohl said.

For the special, the band was introduced by Mackenzie Adams, a kindergarten teacher who went viral for her high-energy virtual classes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This next song is for Mackenzie and all of our unshakable teachers who continue to enlighten our nation’s students every day,” Grohl said to introduce “Times Like These,” the all-too-appropriate 2003 song from the band’s fourth album, One by One.
