Foo Fighters – “These Days” Video

The bulk of Foo Fighters’ new “These Days” video is made up of footage of the band playing a gigantic stadium and generally looking like straight-up rock stars. But we also get to see Dave Grohl kissing his family goodbye and the rest of the band gearing up before the show and cooling down after… More »

Bob Mould, Joan Jett Join Foos @ MSG

Last night, the Foo Fighters headlined Madison Square Garden, and they trotted out a couple of serious rock O.G.s during the encore. First off, Hüsker Dü frontman Bob Mould joined them to help out on “Dear Rosemary,” his recent collaboration with the band, and they followed that by covering Tom Petty’s “Breakdown.” (No Hüsker song,… More »

Kicking off the first night of their two night stand at The Forum, Foo Fighters put on the ultimate arena rock show replete with an arsenal of hit songs, loud guitars, fancy lights and the always charismatic banter of Dave Grohl (“wishes he could be like Prince”).

Last night, the week-long tribute to Pink Floyd continued on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, as Floyd co-founder Roger Waters stopped by and cranked out a one-time-only performance with the Foo Fighters as his backing band.

Shins, MGMT, Pearl Jam Booked For Fallon’s Pink Floyd Week

In retrospect, it’s amazing that this wasn’t Nirvana Week on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The show has previously hosted week-long tributes to the Rolling Stones and Bob Marley. And next week, Fallon will spend the week honoring Pink Floyd. More »

Watch Foo Fighters’ Westboro Baptist Church Counter-Protest

On August 30, the Westboro Baptist Church, one of the major sources of embarrassment for a native Kansan such as myself (we have the Koch brothers too! Represent!), picketed the Foo Fighters concert in Kansas City, MO for whatever backwards, nebulous, par-for-the-course reason they usually picket stuff. Well, maybe it has something to do with… More »

Foo Fighters Make A Fake Gay Porno

When you’re one of the world’s biggest rock bands, you get to do what you want, even if what you want is to advertise your forthcoming North American arena tour with an innuendo-packed, trucker-themed video in which you and your bandmates don ridiculous costumes, proudly bare your asses, and get busy in a truck-stop shower.

Foo Fighters 2011 Tour Rider Is A Coloring Book

It’s no news the Foo Fighters are jokesters. (We said as much when posting their “Walk” video.) It is news, though, that their Wasting Light tour rider’s a 52-page coloring and activity book that’s more entertaining than their music.

Foo Fighters Play SNL

Foo Fighters visited SNL this weekend, and Dave Grohl appeared in two sketches.

Stream Foo Fighters Wasting Light

People debated the relative grunge-ness of “Rope” when it first surfaced, though I think time would’ve been better spent appreciating Dave Grohl’s Hulk Hogan-esque acting in the Lemmy-approved “White Limo” video. Regardless, get your flannel ready before you stream Foo Fighters’ analog-recorded, Butch Vig-produced seventh album Wasting Light. As far as contributing to the ’90… More »

Foo Fighters – “Rope” Video

There was a noteworthy amount of discussion around “Rope,” the first single from the forthcoming Wasting Light, especially given (or maybe because of) how textbook Foo that self-doubting post-grunge radio rock hook felt. Here’s that song’s video, featuring Pat Smear because the album does as well, with the black-clad band inside a Battles “Atlas”-reminiscent cube,… More »

Foo Fighters – “White Limo” Video (Feat. Lemmy)

Foo Fighters playful video for the punked-up “White Limo” stars Lemmy and plenty of Hulk Hogan-esque acting from the band (see above). As far as the aesthetic, it’s fitting Grohl’s wearing a COPS shirt. More »

Foo Fighters Video Sucks

The Foo Fighters just launched a contest to find directors for their album. Usually these contests involve sending in your fan-made video, having the band judge it, and then getting a camera or a Red Lobster gift certificate as your prize.
