The 2021 MTV Video Music Awards include a new award, the US Global Icon Award. Now MTV has announced that the first recipients will be Foo Fighters. The award, which has its roots in the annual MTV Europe Music Award for Global Icon, goes to Dave Grohl and Co. because their “unparalleled career and continued influence and influence have maintained a unique global success in music and beyond”.

In addition to accepting the award, Foo Fighters will perform at this year’s VMAs ceremony on September 12th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The band is up for three more awards this year: Best Rock, Best Choreography and Best Camera, all for their video for “Shame Shame” from Medicine at Midnight. Other cast members confirmed for this year’s show include Lorde, Lil Nas X, Olivia Rodrigo, and more.
