Dave Grohl recently visited Norah Jones' podcast, Norah Jones Is Playing Along, where the singer-songwriter chats and performs with fellow artists. During the 90-minute-long episode, they played a few Foo Fighters rarities — some that haven't been performed live in 17 years, and some that haven't been performed live at all.

As Consequence points out, Grohl (with Jones on backing piano) performed “Statues” from 2007’s Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace for the first time ever. He also dusted off two songs from In Your Honor — “Razor” and “Virginia Moon,” which features Jones — that hadn't been performed live since 2006. Together, they also played Jones' song “Flame Twin,” which ended with an interpolation of part of Nirvana’s “In Bloom,” as well as “The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners” and an acoustic version of “Everlong.”

Listen to the full episode above and look out for the performances at the following time stamps: “Statues” (23:42), “Flame Twin” (38:05), "The Ballad of the Beaconsfield Miners" (56:35), “Razor” (1:02:45), “Everlong” (1:16:45), and “Virginia Moon” (1:31:00).
