Lorde may be a superstar, but she’s deep, man. [Though] I barely got to say two words to her [at the Rock Hall induction]. She flew from God knows where, and we rehearsed the song once. Then we walked onstage and did it. It was very Nirvana: one rehearsal and not a lot of communication.

It was tricky because it’s not just [an HBO] series, it’s [a Foo Fighters] album. And so when you’re sequencing the series, you’re sequencing the album, so what do you sequence first? And how can you write the music before you shoot the episode? How do you know what the theme is going to be and how can you tell the story? These things would keep me up at night. I’m not only thinking about the lyric I have to spin the next day, I’m thinking about how it fits into the overall arc of the history of American music. It’s meant to be the musical equivalent of the finale of Usual Suspects. Like that scene where he’s sitting there, you’re going back through the whole episode. It’s basically that.
