LOS ANGELES -

Adele winning six Grammys is the big story coming out of Sunday's 54th Annual Grammy Awards, but the night's other big winners were the Foo Fighters.

The rock band won five Grammys, and band members noted that album "Wasting Light" was made in a garage.

"To me, this award means a lot because it shows that the human element of making music is what's most important. Singing into a microphone, learning to play an instrument and learning to do your craft, that's the most important thing for people to do," Grohl said as the band accepted their best rock performance trophy for "Walk."

"It's not about being perfect.  It's not about sounding absolutely correct. It's not about what goes on in a computer. It's about what goes on in here (your heart) and what goes on here (your head). ... Long live rock 'n' roll!"
