The latest issue of iconic music magazine Rolling Stone features Foo
Fighters’ Dave Grohl on its cover. Rolling Stone’s exclusive interview with
Grohl starts off in the following setting: “We hop into Grohl’s Tesla, a
$140,000 spaceship with Sonic Youth on the stereo, and he heads down the
hill, drumming on the steering wheel the entire way.” Who knew Grohl was a
Tesla owner? That’s right — Grohl joins a long list of celebrities and
musicians that own the baddest electric car on the planet.

Grohl, the former drummer for Nirvana, has established a bulletproof rep
within the music biz with his band, Foo Fighters, whom Rolling Stone
describes as: “arguably the biggest American rock band of the past 20 years…
Nearly a quarter-century into their career, the Foos are not just a
stadium-filling rock band; they’re a fixture in the firmament.”

It turns out, for some thrills during the interview, Rolling Stone reports:
“Grohl eases the Tesla onto a quiet side street. ‘I haven’t shown you how
fast this car is yet, have I?’ He presses a few buttons on the touch screen
and puts the car into something called ludicrous mode. ‘It doesn’t have a
combustion engine – it’s just magnets or whatever,’ he says. ‘So it goes
zero-to-60 in 2.4 seconds. It’s f**king insane. It feels like this.’
Suddenly he punches the accelerator, and the car launches forward like an
F-16 from a catapult. Grohl laughs. He floors it again, and we scream.”

What kind of Tesla does Grohl own? He also talked about his Model S with
Alternative Nation: “I have a Tesla P100D, and that car goes 0 to 60 in 2.4
seconds. It’s the fastest car I’ve ever been in my entire life.” And it’s
not just Grohl who drives a Tesla in the band. Foo Fighters’ drummer, Taylor
Hawkins, mentions he has a Tesla in the family and that, “Tesla’s are just
f**king bad*ss. My wife has one, and it’s like driving a f**king spaceship,
it really is. There’s nothing gnarlier than that car out there, it really is
the future of cars.”
