Watch SNL’s Mick Jagger/Arcade Fire/Foo Fighters Promos

The Arcade Fire, Foo Fighters and Jeff Beck are set to join the Mick Jagger-hosted SNL this weekend, so naturally some show promos involving all mentioned parties have hit the air.

Dave Grohl Clarifies Grammy Speech

Dave Grohl said some stuff during his Grammy acceptance speech that came across as anti-digital, anti-technology, anti-Skrillex that he thought he should clarify (of course, the whole juxtaposition of his “long live the rock!” speech at odds with his band’s performance with Deadmau5 later in the broadcast. The Grammys, ladies and gents!). Here’s Dave, via… More »

The 10 Least Boring Moments From The 2012 Grammys

Barely 24 hours before this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony began, Whitney Houston, a woman who’d once seemed like a cyborg engineered to win as many Grammys as possible, was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel room. Houston was exactly the sort of artist who the Grammys are built to honor — enormously talented, ridiculously… More »

Grammys Add Dance Music Segment, Oscars Cut Original Song Segment

The producers of the Grammys have never been afraid to give the world fascinating, embarrassing pileups, and this year’s ceremony could be a doozy. As the Associated Press reports, this Sunday’s ceremony will include a vageuly ravey segment in a tent space outside the Staples Center, with 1000 fans. That’s where the Foo Fighters and… More »

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 »

Foo Fighters, Cage The Elephant, Mariachi El Bronx @ The Forum, Inglewood 10/13/11

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”).

Roger Waters Joins Foo Fighters On Fallon

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. Together, they took on “In The Flesh,” the rumbler from The Wall. The Foos totally and completely played backing-band… More »

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 – “Walk” Video

By now you (and Lemmy) know Foo Fighters have fun with their videos: “Walk”‘s recreation of that grunge-era Michael Douglas movie Falling Down is no different. More »

Foo Fighters Play SNL

Foo Fighters visited SNL this weekend, and Dave Grohl appeared in two sketches. One was the SNL Digital Short where Grohl lived inside Mirren’s magical rack, and another had Grohl taking over Jason Sudeikis’s job as a strip club DJ. They also did “Rope” and “Walk” on the show. Check out their performances and Grohl’… More »

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 »
