Foo Fighter’s Video Enrages WestBoro Baptist Church.

The Foo Fighters have come under fire from that crackpot group of religious nutcases who creep us the fuck out the West Boro Baptist Church, (WBC), regarding their latest video promoting their North American Tour.

The five minute promo video entitled Hot Buns has the band dressed as long distance truck drivers showering with each other after hard day on the road, of course sexual innuendo is high throughout the video and why not. What’s wrong with a little humour in the showers? Well apparently it could lead to the wrath of the Lord and a day of destruction which will wipe out every sinner on earth.

Really? Just for horsing around in the shower for some cheap laughs? Bit harsh.

On the WBC’s official homepage, delightfully entitled God Hates Fags, the following post can be seen:

WBC to picket the Foo Fighters at the Sprint Center. The entertainment industry is a microcosm of the people in this doomed nation: hard-hearted, Hell-bound, and hedonistic. These people have a platform and should be using it to encourage obedience to God; instead they teach every person who will listen all things contrary to Him: fornication, adultery, idolatry, fags. The people in this nation have sinned away their day of grace and have so enraged their God that you are seeing new outpourings of His wrath continually. We will be there to remind you that the day of your destruction is upon you, even as you vainly seek comfort in the frivolities of this life.

The LORD hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath. [They] have done evil in my sight, saith the LORD…And the carcasses of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, & for the beasts of the earth…Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate. Jeremiah 7:29-34

Your doom is coming, america! Repent or Perish!

So here’s the video. Enjoy because it’ll be the last thing you’ll see before your eyeballs burst into flames, your body is struck by lightening and the ground opens up to swallow you whole. Rejoice!

Morrissey May Be A Dick!

You too can have a body like this if you only eat vegetables.

Not just because the heavy set vegetarian recently played our home town and had his entourage contact local restaurants, which were’nt even remotely near to his beloved gig, and demanded that they stop cooking all meat products while he and his hilarious sideburns took to the stage. No, Morrissey just might be a royal bell-end because of this:

“We all live in a murderous world, as the events in Norway have shown, with 97 dead.

Though that is nothing compared to what happens in McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried Shit every day.

Oh yes he did! He compared the slaughter of innocent kids to the activities of fast food restaurants at a recent concert in Warsaw. (via The Guardian)

We’re Hoping He’s A Troll.

Here is yet further conclusive proof that we are failing as a species.

The gentleman above who is stripped to the waist and covered in tattoos, (we’ve seen better artwork on the front of fridges), and ranting on about Christ knows what has been accused of being an ‘Internet Troll‘ – an individual who deliberately posts content on the Internet to provoke a reaction, because let’s face it how could anyone like this be real?

*record scratch*

But sadly this video appears to be genuine and so does the fuckwit in the cap and glasses the gentleman in question, for he is none other than rapper Riff Raff…which means the Mayans were right.

New Beastie Boys Video Directed By Spike Jonze.

Back in 1994 The Beastie Boys released a music video for their single Sabotaged which became an instant cult classic. Fast forward 17 years, (has it really been that long?), and the hip hop trio have teamed up once more with director Spike Jonze, (Where The Wild Things Are, Adaptation, Being Jon Malkovich), for the video of their latest single Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win, featuring The Beastie Boys as old school Action Men, a cameo appearance by Santigold as a Barbie Doll, a zombie Nazi horde, man eating sharks and just for good measure a Yeti in a helicopter.

Robin Tyner Plays Grande Days On The Auto Harp.

This rare footage of Robin Tyner, ex-frontman of legendary punk group MC5, is quite possibly the best thing we’ve seen and heard this year.

Yes, some people have rudely pointed out that he has the dress sense of the original Terminator and looks like a cross between Uncle Buck and Mrs Doubtfire, but can he play that auto-harp and can he sing a ballad. This, for any of you out there who enjoys watching The X Factor or who has bleated on about how ‘awesome’ Beyonce was at Glastonbury and T In The Park, is what real fucking talent looks like.

The song is about the nights he spent at the infamous Grande Ballroom in Detroit back in 60s when MC5 was a regular house band there, incidentally that’s where they recorded their debut album ‘Kick Out The Jams‘. Sadly Tyner died in 1991 of a massive heart attack, we’ve included the original version of Grande Days, which is even more 80s, below for your further enjoyment. This song is begging to be covered.

Zane Lowe Laughs At Lauren Laverne!

And we would have too.

As you’ll see from this video above both presenters re-group after Beyonce’s performance last night at the Glastonbury Festival to talk about her act, when Lauren Laverne starts to gush uncontrollably about the singer, making pretentious comparisons to George Clinton and Cool And The Gang, something about the roots of soul music and other fart blossum mince that really only a television presenter could vomit up. Zane Lowe on the other hand remains silent throughout and visibly has trouble trying to comprehend what Laverne is saying, offering up his only contribution to the conversation by laughing and stating he watched the Queens Of The Stone Age instead.

Lowe is taking some flack on Twitter this morning for his actions and we have no idea why. We would have done exactly the same thing, (although to be fair not exactly in the same rude and obnoxious fashion, but that’s Zane Lowe for you).

Two Irish Kids Cover Foo Fighters Everlong.

Here’s a video of two children, that’s right two children, doing an outstanding job of covering The Foo Fighters song Everlong at the Electric Picnic Festival in Ireland.The synopsis of the video on YouTube explains:

Dylan and Lauren (or ‘Sandalwood’ as they are calling themselves) perform their favourite track ‘Everlong’ (Dave, Grohl, Foo Fighters) in the OxJam tent at Electric Picnic festival 2010.
Lauren (11) spotted the ‘open mic’ sign outside the oxjam tent, grabbed her brother and barrelled over …within barely a minute I heard them announce ‘next up a brother and sister combo…’ and I barely had time to get in with the camera, thankfully it took dylan (12) a minute to retune the borrowed guitar to drop-D.

The Foo Fighters are due to play the Oxygen Festival in Ireland this year and you just know that if Dave Grohl sees this video he’ll have these kids up on the main stage performing with him.

Yes, we too are aware of just how much we’ve wasted our lives. You’re not alone.
