Corden also considers a life as a drummer: "I've never really picked up the sticks, but I don't consider it to be an issue. 'Cause what is drumming? It's a feeling."

Foo Fighters had the entire van air-drumming when they appeared on James Corden's "Carpool Karaoke" on Wednesday night.

Dave Grohl and company piled into one vehicle for the latest installation of the series, which aired during The Late Late Show. The Foos sang along to a few of their hits, including "All My Life," "Best of You" and "Learn to Fly."

In the same week as the release of their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold, the Foos also performed new single "The Sky Is a Neighborhood," after which bassist Nate Mendel reacted, saying, "There's a lot of words in that song," a takeaway Corden found hilarious.

Grohl asked Corden if he is an actual drummer, to which the host boasts, "I'd kick both your asses 'cause rhythm moves within me. I've never really picked up the sticks, but I don't consider it to be an issue. 'Cause what is drumming? It's a feeling." Grohl suggested a proper audition, and the entire crew rolled into a Guitar Center to play drums side by side. Spoiler alert: Corden pales in comparison to Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins.

The video concluded with the entire band Rick-rolling an unsuspecting crowd of fans, performing Rick Astley's "Give You Up" with Corden on vocals.

Foo Fighters have announced a lengthy tour for Concrete and Gold, with support from Queens of the Stone Age in South America and Weezer in Australia and New Zealand.
