Dave Grohl says the Foo Fighters' experience on "Carpool Karaoke" was "a little uncomfortable" after the band made their debut appearance in the meme-worthy segment on CBS' The Late Late Show With James Corden.

As recounted to NME, Grohl and Foos guitarist Pat Smear apparently got a tad "Exhausted" when doing the popular bit with TV show host James Corden.

"By hour three in dude's car, it got less fun," Smear says of filming the band's recent "Carpool Karaoke" piece. "It kinda went on. When we stopped at Guitar Center, that felt like we were done, but it was like, 'This is halfway'."

While Grohl, Foo Fighters' frontman and former Nirvana drummer, admits he gets a little red-faced belting out his own tunes in close quarters, he does mention that Corden seems like a genuine music fan and an affable chap.

"He definitely is [a music lover], he's a very nice guy," Grohl says about Corden. "But, you know, I don't mind singing my own songs at Glastonbury or the O2 but if I had to sing you a song right now, I'd be too embarrassed."

"Singing other people's songs would have been easier," Smear adds.

Grohl tends to agree, revealing that portions of their lengthy "Carpool Karaoke" shoot apparently went unused: "I could do that all day. We did the Ramones, and Rick Astley, but they didn't use it. I don’t know why."
