‘Mr. Grohl, thou declare defeat at my feet,” she says in mock serious tones as digital lightning flashes in the dark sky behind her. “The rock gods of old watch your retreat. Your legend in history will echo in time. But still, you resign to a child of 3 foot 9.” She then magically summons matching purple drumsticks and prays the rock gods be with her, beckoning such late icons as Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister, Jimi Hendrix and Queen’s Freddie Mercury.
Turning to the dark side in a second costume, Bushell hilariously includes a reference to Tenacious D’s 2001 parody single “Tribute,” in which Grohl had a cameo as the devil in promising that her collab with the singer/guitarist will be “the greatest song in the world.” And then, months after Grohl noticed her when he cover of Nirvana’s “In Bloom” blew up, kicking off a back-and-forth battle with the 51-year-old rock icon, she said “It’s been an honor battling you, Mr. Grohl, and I can’t wait to write our song together.”
