The Foo Fighters’ “Everlong” has long been a fan-favorite. Apparently it can also save lives. 

Dave Grohl’s all-world rockers had the great honor of closing out the final episode of David Letterman’s legendary The Late Show overnight. They could've conceivably gone with “My Hero,” but they went with “Everlong” at the request of the show’s retiring host.

The song, the closer on the Foos’ classic sophomore album The Color and the Shape, is close to Letterman’s heart. Really. The band performed it on the show back in 2000 as Letterman was recovering from emergency open-heart surgery. “These people saved my life,” the funnyman said of that performance 15 years ago.

Watch as the Foos helped Letterman end his career with a bang. Only this time, "Everlong" soundtracked a compilation of highlights from across the talk-show host’s incredible career.
