Taylor Hawkins and Chevy Metal are bringing the party to X Games Minneapolis 2019.

Taylor Hawkins has been drumming with the Foo Fighters since 1997. That's over twenty years, and to achieve that type of longevity, the Foo Fighters don't spend 365 days a year on the road or recording. They take the necessary downtime to keep motivated, and therein lies the origin of Chevy Metal. Hawkins, joined by Wiley Hodgden on bass/vocals as well as a revolving cast of characters, is Chevy Metal. And Chevy Metal keeps it straight and simple by playing dirt rock covers from the '70s, with obvious nods to Black Sabbath, Van Halen, Queen and The Rolling Stones. It's just the type of downtime that Hawkins was seeking, and this year, they're bringing the party to X Games Minneapolis 2019.

Chevy Metal performs live on Thurs., Aug. 1 at 10:15 p.m. CT at X Games Minneapolis 2019.
