Foo Fighters Perform Nirvana’s Cover of “Molly’s Lips”

Credit: Hayley MaddenFoo Fighters paid tribute to Nirvana and one of Kurt Cobain's favorite bands at their show in Scotland on Tuesday. While Dave Grohl was introducing guitarist -- and former Nirvana member -- Pat Smear, the Foos launched into an impromptu cover of "Molly's Lips," a song originally recorded by The Vaselines that Nirvana often covered. You can watch fan-shot footage of the performance on YouTube.

Nirvana released their cover of "Molly's Lips" as a single from their 1992 compilation album Insecticide. Cobain was a big fan of The Vaselines, and Nirvana also released covers of their songs "Son of a Gun" and "Jesus Doesn't Want Me for a Sunbeam."

Foo Fighters' Scotland show marked the last date of their U.K. tour. They will return to North America for the final leg of their Sonic Highways tour this Friday in Vancouver.
