Hours before Thursday’s MTV Video Music Awards, the Foo Fighters rocked the music world at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C.

Howard Fineman, Editorial Director for Huffington Post Media watched from the floor and called their performance “some of the best live music I’ve heard at a convention.”

Actress Elizabeth Banks (and Zach Braff?) watched from the nose bleed seats:

James Taylor and Mary J. Blidge also performed at the convention.

Last week, 3 Doors Down and “American Idol” winner Taylor Hicks performed at the Republican National Convention in Tampa Bay, according to http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/2012/08/a-musical-recap-of-the-republican-convention.html.
