The Foo Fighters are currently performing their first national tour Down Under since 2018.
And the famed American musicians have delighted their Aussie fans by including a raunchy throwback number called ‘Big Balls’ in their set list as a tribute to local rock heroes AC/DC.
But instead of the song being performed by frontman Dave Grohl, 54, the lead vocals for the cheeky tune are sung by a member of the Foo Fighters road crew, Australian guitar tech Fiona Owen.
A fan video loaded to YouTube recorded at the Foo Fighters Perth concert last week shows the pint-sized and heavily tattooed Owen, in black shorts and singlet, howling the song’s racy lyrics.
Foo Fighters have included Owens and the song in their for act for their Australian stadium tour to pay tribute to their musical heroes AC/DC reports The Daily Telegraph.

Originally recorded in 1976 by AC/DC for their Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap album, Big Balls is notorious for its naughty lyrics that play on a popular slang term for a part of male anatomy.
AC/DC formed in Sydney in 1973, became one of Australia’s most successful band’s of all time selling an estimated 200 million albums in a career that has lasted 50 years.
Meanwhile, Dave Grohl charmed his local fans on Friday when he took time out to volunteer for Melbourne ‘s The Big Umbrella, a street kitchen charity for the homeless.
The famed 54-year-old hitmaker was spotted serving food and spreading some Christmas cheer at the kitchen’s site in Federation Square.

Grohl put in long hours on the food line before flying out for the Foo Fighters next show in Sydney.
It was an especially impressive effort from Grohl, since it came after Foo Fighters had just completed packed shows at Melbourne’s AAMI Park on Monday and Wednesday.
According to its official website The Big Umbrella, established in 2010, was set up to support the homeless and ‘food insecure.’
It’s now recognised as as an emergency food relief organisation ‘supporting communities affected by wildfires, floods, earthquakes, storms and pandemics,’ the website explains.
The organisation shared several images of Dave helping in the kitchen and called him an ‘amazing volunteer’.

The rock band were forced to cancel their 2022 tour of Australia after the sudden death of their drummer Taylor Hawkins.
The rocker died suddenly in his hotel room in March last year at the age of 50, just hours before Foo Fighters were due to perform at a festival in Colombia.
