The rockers picked up the trophy for their track "White Limo" - one of the five awards they took home
on Sunday (12.02.12) - and whilst singer Dave Grohl
had admitted it was the one he most wanted, he feel sorry for metal act Dream Theater
, as their track was heavier.
Shortly after being announced as winners, Dave told MTV
: "We got it! I feel so bad for the Dream Theater guy, because they actually had a metal performance. We didn't, but it's awesome.
Referring to "White Limo", he added: "That's kind of the coolest song we've ever written.
Dave added he was also happy most of the awards they were nominated for had been announced before they performed at the show.
He said: "It's kind of nice. Now we can just sit there and play and not worry about Grammys anymore. I think if we win them all, we look like d***s.
Drummer Taylor Hawkins
was really excited about performing their version
" - seguing into the remix version by Deadmau5
halfway through - a one-off for the event.
He said: "It's so un-us, though, when you hear it that it's awesome.
