Watch: Why Foo Fighters and ‘Everlong’ were perfect for David Letterman’s final show

Foo Fighters seemed like a curious musical guest for David Letterman’s final show Wednesday night. Not to say that the 68-year-old talk show host can’t like a modern act, but you might have figured an older group — perhaps one that endured and was a recurring guest over Letterman’s 33-year run on TV — would be the choice.
