By this point in their career, Foo Fighters have played with countless other acts from the hugest rock stars to emerging talents from all over the world. You may think it would be hard to remember all of them, but Dave Grohl recently shared who he thought was the best band EVER to open for them in an interview with NME.

It’s none other than The Struts!

He elaborated on the process of choosing who Foo Fighters bring out on tour with them and said, "One of the great things about being in the position we’re in – playing these big shows is that we get to decide who’s playing with us, and we try to expose new audiences to great new music that they maybe might not otherwise heard."

About The Struts he added, "That kid Luke, the singer, it’s unbelievable. He’ll walk out in front of an audience in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where nobody has ever heard of them and by the end of the show he’ll have the entire audience in the palm of his hand. I love seeing that. To see an audience turn like that is not easy."

So there you have it! The Struts have one huge seal of approval!
