This past weekend, the BottleRock Napa festival took place in Northern California.

While not quite as iconic, Foo Fighters were muted midway through a performance of their set-closer "Everlong" while performing at BottleRock festival in the Napa Valley. As you can see in the footage below, they're not ones for giving in. Despite the lack of power, though, Dave Grohl and co. kept rolling right along in leading the crowd through the song's final chorus. Grohl and the Foos were allotted a two-hour headlining spot when the 10 PM curfew hit, prompting festival security to pull the plug on the band as to not violate any noise ordinances.

Lack of speakers didn't stop them from playing as a video shows the band continuing the song with the crowd singing along before farewelling festival-goers for the night.

The music group, led by frontman Dave Grohl, were going strong at their first major show in the United States in nearly two years, until they ran past the festival's strict 10 PM curfew, reported Spin magazine.
