The song was a flawless choice, and Grohl even introduced the 2002 single with a nod to his mother and the rest of the teaching community when he dedicated the track to "all of our unshakeable teachers that continue to enlighten our nation's kids every day".

Dave grohl, 52 and the Foo fighters are icons for a reason!

Before playing, Dave Grohl prefaced the song with a tribute to all educators across the United States, in particular his own mother - a teacher of 35 years - and even Dr Jill Biden, the new First Lady of the United States. The show aired on the "Celebrating America" special in prime time. "It's times like these when you learn to live again / It's times like these that you give and give back", he added poignantly.

"Dave Grohl singing Times Like These is by far the ideal song for the US and world right now". The performance started off quiet and somber before the Dave and the group rocked out, celebrating the historic day.
