The Foo Fighters have been doing plenty on their latest run to keep things interesting. After adopting a fan onstage, bringing John Travolta onstage and Dave Grohl almost breaking his leg, we can’t say we’re surprised by the latest headlines.

The band’s latest onstage shenanigan happened during a show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Friday (May 4). They invited an adorable 8-year-old kid who goes by the name Little Fonzie onstage to perform one of their songs.

Adorable, right? Well, the cute moment lasted a little longer than expected.

After a few of minutes of his epic drum solo, Grohl commented to the crowd: “He’s still going…Little Fonzie is still going…Can I have my concert back?” Of course, that only egged Little Fonzie on, and the 8-year-old continued his drumming.

Grohl soon decided that calling his dad onto the stage was probably the best answer. He then joked: “I don’t know what to do, what are you going to do…we have a couple more songs.” The boy’s father get's him to stop the performance of his lifetime, but he doesn’t leave the stage without being greeted with deafening applause.
