The rocker's Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways documentary series is up for four awards at the prizegiving and Grohl is set to attend the glitzy bash in Los Angeles, but the Everlong hitmaker admits he is dreading the ceremony.

He tells, "I'm the new kid at school right now.. I don't know anybody and I don't know what to expect... I don't know a lot of the people... I'll probably just sit down, with my back up against the wall, just nervous, and waiting to see who is going to want to talk to me. I have a little bit of social anxiety. It might... seem hard to imagine, but in rooms like that, I kind of clam up... I mean put me at the f**king Grammys, and I know everybody there, and I've got a bottle of whiskey in my hands the whole time, but we'll see what happens..."

The 67th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards will take place in L.A. on 12 September (15).
