In the video below Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, Nirvana’s two surviving members, rock the same stadium again Saturday night in Seattle, as their bands played Safeco Field.
“You haven’t aged a day,” quipped Grohl, rock’s reigning goofball, as the unassuming Novoselic quietly walked on stage with a still-handed wave. With that, Foo Fighters — which also includes former Nirvana touring member Pat Smear — blasted through a spunky rendition of “Molly’s Lips,” the Vaselines cover made more famous when Nirvana’s version landed on the grunge heroes’ “Incesticide” rarities compilation.

The eighth annual Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville wrapped its biggest year yet on Friday, April 27, Saturday, April 28 and Sunday, April 29 with a record sold out crowd of more than 90,000 in attendance at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, FL, and hotel rooms sold out across the city.
In 2018, Monster Energy Welcome To Rockville grew to three days for the first time, and also expanded the festival grounds to include a portion of the parking lots at Everbank Field. Headlining sets included Ozzy Osbourne, who kicked off his “No More Tours 2” farewell tour at the festival, plus Foo Fighters who played Jacksonville for the first time ever in their 23-year career (and whose set included a special guest appearance by Billy Idol), as well as an electrifying set from Avenged Sevenfold, culminating with a gigantic fireworks display.
