Watch Dave Grohl and Chelsea Handler's hilarious SiriusXM Town Hall

During the SiriusXM Town Hall on EW Radio, Dave Grohl and Chelsea Handler remembered what happened at the Chelsea Lately goodbye, or, as the Foo Fighters frontman called it, “The most f—ed up Hollywood Squares s–t I’ve ever experienced in my life.”

The pair pointed to the varied (keyword: varied) celebrities who joined them in a “We Are the World” parody: Bobby Brown, Buzz Aldrin, Wiz Khalifa, Rick Springfield, Sammy Hagar, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Osbourne, and Josh Gad, among others. There were about 100 total.

Handler joked of Cyrus being handed a joint, and a sober Osbourne freaking out, trying not to inhale the smoke. “This is a disaster, an amazing disaster,” Handler said of her goodbye.

She thanked Grohl for his part. “I’m a saint, just so you know,” he joked. “Nicest f—ing guy in the world, that’s me. Nicest guy in rock.” He wasn’t so nice, however, when he heard Gad singing, recognizing him as the voice of Olaf from Frozen

Rock And Roll Hall of Fame answers one great mystery of rock music: When did Rush get so cool?

It’s always been a great irony of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that induction ceremonies might be the least rock ‘n’ roll thing ever. But Public Enemy, Rush, Heart, Donna Summer, Quincy Jones, Lou Adler, Albert King, and Randy Newman took their spots in the canon last night — the actual ceremony happened at L.A.’s Nokia Theater in April, but HBO didn’t air it until a month later — it was clear that many of them must be big fans of irony.

Randy Newman kicked things off with his anthem “I Love L.A.,” which got the whole crowd of Los Angelenos (including Jack Nicholson) earnestly singing the refrain “We love it!,” even though the song mocks their hometown. Later, Dave Grohl noted that Rush were being honored despite the fact that they’ve always been ignored by the mainstream press, especially Rolling Stone, whose editor in chief, Jann Wenner, co-founded the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame Foundation. The best moment of the night came when Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson managed to give his entire acceptance speech using only the words “blah blah blah.” Speaking in different intonations and using hand gestures, he was able to convey the whole story of the band, right up to the surprising phone call that informed them that they were being inducted (“Blah BLAH blah?”), and the thanks-to-fans-like-YOU! speech that followed. (“Blah blah BLAH!” he said, pointing at the crowd.) He somehow managed to send up every awards-show speech ever — and maybe the whole Rock and Roll Hall of Fame itself — at the same podium where they’re so revered. If you ask me, that’s just as rock ‘n’ roll as any music that earned a golden statue that night.
