Foo Fighters recorded their new album Sonic Highways in eight different American cities. However, their time in the studio wasn’t strictly limited to new music. While in Austin, Dave Grohl and co. hit Austin City Limits’ original television studio, where they laid down a cover of Roky Erickson’s “Two Headed Dog (Red Temple Prayer)” to mark the 40th season of the iconic music program.
