The Foo Fighters might rock but frontman Dave Grohl wants you to know that teachers do too.

Grohl will bring that message to the masses on a new CBS special aptly titled ‘Teachers Rock’ set to air on August 18 at 8PM ET.

The show is designed to put extraordinary teachers and education in the spotlight and will feature stars from music and film talking about the personal influences their teachers had on them with a specific emphasis on music.

It’s not clear yet whether or not Grohl will perform on the TV show or just be interviewed about his favorite teachers so fans will have to tune in to find out. Grohl will be joined by several other musicians for the special including Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and actor/musician Jack Black from Tenacious D.

The show will also serve as a fundraiser with donations benefiting three great causes –, Feeding America and Teach for America.

Dave Grohl has been putting the finishing touches on his upcoming documentary about the legendary ‘Sound City’ studio. Find out more about it here.
