“Weird Al” Yankovic recently covered Foo Fighters at a live show in San Diego. During the encore from one of his Ill-Advised Vanity Tour show dates, the comedian performed the Foo’s 1995 single “This Is A Call.”

“We’ve never played this one before, so cut us a little slack,” he said before the cover. Way back in 1992, Al parodied Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” on his track “Smells Like Nirvana.” Watch the performance below and revisit Spin's list of the 53 best “Weird Al” videos of all time.
