In a special tribute to school teachers across the United States, Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters performed an emotive rendition of their 2003 song Times Like These.

Elsewhere, the 52-year-old rocker teased that while playing arenas and stadiums isn't likely to happen for a little while yet, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Foo Fighters will "start getting out there soon" in some way.

An incredibly apt song for these times we're living in. The performance aired during the primetime special "Celebrating America".

"This year our teachers were faced with unprecedented challenges, but through dedication and creativity, they faced those challenges head-on".

"I, I'm a one-way highway / I'm the one that pulls away / Then follows you home / I, I'm a shining street light", he sang, arriving at the lyrics to the title.

In non-presidential news, Foo Fighters are on the cusp of releasing their new album, Medicine At Midnight, due out Friday, 5th February.

Dave Grohl is a rock & roll legend and "Times like these" is the flawless song.

Performing from "iconic locations across the country", Celebrating America also featured performances by Black Pumas, Tim McGraw, Tyler Hubbard, Jon Bon Jovi, Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, John Legend, Ant Clemons, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Demi Lovato, Bruce Springsteen and more. So far, three songs are available for streaming off of the anticipated project: "Shame, Shame" which debuted on Saturday Night Live in November, "No Son of Mine" and "Waiting on a War".
