Grohl’s first reaction to hearing ‘Superunknown’? “Holy s–t! This is gonna be huge! It was the perfect meeting of the Beatles and Black Sabbath.”

The band’s performance will take place during the iTunes Festival in Austin, TX, which is set to feature performances from Zedd, Coldplay and Imagine Dragons.

He explained that he played “Crazy Love” for his wife (who was sitting in the front row with their children) at their engagement party, and then thanked his mother-in-law — who was hanging out at side stage — for allowing him to marry her daughter.
