Page 49 ''Lights, Camera, Action'' Article discussing The Foos' esteemed projects with film soundtrack work.

''Grohl often used his soundtrack work as a chance to record provocative covers or to collaborate with other musicians. The Foo Fighters did Pink Floyd's ''Have A Cigar'' for 2000's ''Mission Impossible 2'', the track featuring Queen's Brian May on guitar. It didn't sound much like Pink Floyd, but it sure sounded like Brian May having a good old trash out with the Foo Fighters.''

''Incidentally, in 2001, Grohl and Taylor Hawkins were involved with the induction of Queen into the (USA) Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame when Grohl sang ''Tie Your Mother Down'' with Queen.''
