Rock and roll insomniac Dave Grohl recently found time to assist Soundgarden in directing their music video for “By Crooked Steps”. And like any true pal, he’s helped smooth the edges of the band’s occasionally pompous tendencies by instilling some Foo Fighters-inspired humor and casting the band as a Segway-driving biker gang. They drink, they smoke, they rock crowds, and somehow make a 15 mph car chase more exhilarating than the entirety of The Fast and The Furious. Watch them Soundgarden boys below:

Dave Grohl has been a busy guy. Not only has he been putting the finishing touches to his documentary on Sound City Studios, but he has also been promoting his film’s soundtrack (with a little help from an ex-Beatle). Now the Foo Fighters frontman (and Nirvana drummer) can add a Soundgarden music video to his resume.

Soundgarden revealed yesterday that they were filming a new music video for the song “By Crooked Steps” with Grohl directing. The reunited grunge group posted candid on-set photos from the shooting via Instagram, including the one seen above. Though the video’s plot hasn’t been made publicly known, the photos indicate there’s some sort of biker-gang theme occurring in the video.

It’s unknown as to how soon we’ll get to see the video for “By Crooked Steps.” Either way, though, it’s just cool to know that Grohl and Soundgarden are collaborating in some fashion.
