After weeks of fanfare, legacy think-pieces and heartfelt goodbyes, the Late Show with David Letterman finally signed off last night. Featuring a look back at some of Letterman’s favorite bits and clips from the show’s history, some behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the long-running program, and a final top 10 list read by guests Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jim Carrey, Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, and Peyton Manning, the late night host closed things out by expressing a lengthy moment of gratitude to his staff, producers, writers, announcer Alan Kaiter, stage manager Biff Henderson, Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra, and his family.

Saying goodnight, Letterman’s had his favorite band the Foo Fighters play his favorite song, “Everlong.” When Letterman had to undergo open heart surgery in 2000, the band had played the song on his first show back on the air and had apparently cancelled an entire tour through South America to do so. As the band played, footage and images from Letterman’s lengthy time of television aired alongside the music.
