4. The Dark Side of Carpool Karaoke: The Foo Fighters Say it's Really Boring to Film

Everybody loves "Carpool Karaoke" except maybe the artists who appear on it. The FOO FIGHTERS did it last month, and as fun as their car ride with JAMES CORDEN seemed, it was actually very BORING.

Guitarist PAT SMEAR says, quote, "By hour three in the dude's car it got less fun. It kinda went on. When we stopped at Guitar Centre, that felt like we were done, but it was like 'this is halfway.'"

And DAVE GROHL said he would have rather sung other people's songs. Quote, "I don't mind singing my own songs at Glastonbury or The O2 but if I had to sing you a song right now I'd be too embarrassed."

"We did The Ramones and Rick Astley, but they didn't use it. I don't know why."
