The Big Foo Fighters Announcement Was Hilarious.

For some time there have been rumours flying around the internet that rock band Foo Fighters were on the verge of breaking up, mainly due to further inaccurate speculation that the band considered lead man Dave Grohl to be ‘too Hollywood’.

So when the band issued a statement that an official announcement would be made online everyone automatically assumed the band was finished.

They couldn’t have been more wrong. The announcement itself was nothing short of hilarious.

 

Tenacious D Have A New Video And A New Album.

This six minute long beast heralds the return of the comedy musical duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass and their forthcoming album Rize Of The Fenix, since their disappointing box office flop that was Tenacious D: The Pick Of Destiny. In fact since that turkey the pair have done very little together, until now.

Less a music video and more of a promotional short film it stars Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer and Dave Grohl, who has confirmed he plays the drums for most of the tracks on the new album which will be released in May which will be supported by a 16 day tour across the States by the duo.

 

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!

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.
