As the 2012 Grammy Awards slowly become a spotlit memory, one of the most successful and featured winners of “music’s biggest night” were Foo Fighters. With his band having captured five Grammy awards (only one less than pop star Adele), including Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance, frontman Dave Grohl revealed to MTV that he feels bad for beating out Dream Theater for that very award.

It seemed like the cameras couldn’t keep their lenses off of Dave Grohl during the pre-show, red carpet and Grammy ceremony. The Foo Fighters frontman was shown accepting awards for Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Album, Best Long-Form Music Video and Best Rock Performance. Grohl also appeared in three separate live performances throughout the show – playing ‘Walk’ with his band, collaborating with Deadmau5 for a multi-genre mix of ‘Rope’ and finally jamming with Paul McCartney, Bruce Springsteen and others during the show’s conclusion.

Despite his success and constant ear-to-ear smile, Grohl was feeling badly for Dream Theater. “We got it!” Grohl said about winning the Best Hard Rock / Metal Performance Grammy. “I feel so bad for the Dream Theater guy, because they actually had a metal performance, we didn’t, but it’s awesome. That’s kind of the coolest song we’ve ever written,” he said of the edgy ‘White Limo.’
