Foo Fighters & Jack Black Hook Up Again

The Foo Fighters recently hooked up with actor Jack Black on the video for the song “Low,” the next single from their latest album, One By One. In the video, Black, who is also half of the music-comedy duo Tenacious D, struts his stuff with Foos vocalist Dave Grohl. According to, the video features the two prancing around in women’s clothes. In one scene, Black reportedly dons a curly black wig, baseball hat, pink bikini top, and a pair of shorts, while Grohl is seen wearing a blonde wig while putting on lipstick.

Grohl and Black have a long history. Black appeared in the Foo’s “Learning To Fly” video in 1999; Grohl played drums on Tenacious D’s self-titled 2001 debut album, and also played the devil in the video for Tenacious D’s song “Tribute.”

In an interview done at the time of the Tenacious D album release, Grohl talked about working with Black and Black’s partner, Kyle Gass. “Tenacious D are the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band in the world, and they’re hilariously funny,” Grohl said. “When you’re tracking in the studio with them it’s live, so you’ve got Jack in an iso [isolation] booth right there, you’ve got Kyle in an iso booth right there, and you have to keep an eye line because all the cues are live and whatever. But they’re so funny that it just makes tracking live impossible; I’m sitting there trying to keep the beat while tears are rolling down my face and I’m laughing hysterically.”

At press time, there was no word on when “Low” would hit video channel outlets.
