The Who Hate Each Other, Various People Cover The Who

We've written plenty about VH1's "Rock Honors." The Foo Fighters and Gaz Coombes' take on "Bargain" wasn't exciting. The Flaming Lips' practice footage was, relatively speaking. (It involved an illuminated gong, remember.) Adding to our footage of bands covering the who, VH1's posted more clips from the evening. The rumors are true: Pearl… More »

Foo Fighters Cover The Who With Gaz Coombes

Last week we showed you a clip of the Flaming Lips rehearsing for the "VH1 Rock Honors" concert at L.A.'s Pauley Pavilio, where they'd be joined by Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Incubus, and Tenacious D in paying homage to Who. The show has since happened. Hopefully practice made perfect. No telling as of yet,… More »

The Song Remains The Same … Unless You Can Get Zep To Cover It With You. Then It Becomes Much More Awesome.

People in London are flipping their wigs, figuratively and probably literally too, at the news of the Foos show Saturday night in Wembley stadium. Billboard.com reports on This Moment In Rock History: Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and bassist John Paul Jones turned an already high-profile Foo Fighters show into a once-in-a-lifetime event Saturday… More »

Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, And Flaming Lips To Get Meaty Beaty Big And Bouncy For The Who

Or, something like that. Though likely not even half as dirty. Still, wake up -- it's been confirmed Eddie & pals, the Lips, and the Foos are all performing in honor of the Who as part of the third annual VH1 Rock Honors, which takes place at L.A.'s Pauley Pavilion on 7/12. On to… More »

Foo Fighters Enter The Funniest Tour Rider Contest

This is an imaginary contest that we just made up. Before today, the all-time champion was Iggy Pop, compliments of his tour manager guy Jos Grain (example: "2 X HEAVY DUTY STRAIGHT CYMBAL STANDS. But we are equal opportunity employers, so gay stands may apply also. [They won't get the fucking job, though..."]). And… More »

Dave Grohl Writes Metallica A Letter

Remember right after Record Store Day we posted that funny local news clip of Metallica signing autographs and talking about the kids "textin'" and not going to record stores and shit? And that a number of your comments centered around the band being especially not-very-good at this point? Well, looks like Dave Grohl agrees. More »

Bob Dylan, Chuck Berry Join Usual Suspects For Virgin Fest 2008

Some details leaked a few weeks back, but now you can peruse the full line-up for Virgin's Baltimore stop and decide whether to shell out the $175 (plus $175 for gas). The third annual Virgin East Coast delivers some familiar festival faces to Pimlico Race Course August 9 and 10: Kanye, NIN, and the omnipresent… More »

Huey Lewis & The Foos

We've been talking about Huey Lewis's seeming resurgence, and the bands who love to cover him. He lent his raspy vocal talents to celebrating Jimmy fucking Ben, and now he's showing up on even more random stages. After the Foo Fighters rocked through "This Is A Call" during their final night in Osaka,… More »

Austin City Limits 2008 Gets Foos, Fogerty

With all the new summer music events vying for your attention, we understand if you've got festival announcement burnout. Consider adding ACL to your wish list, though, as they've just announced a ton of great bands who'll be visiting Zilker Park 9/26-9/28. Foo Fighters, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Beck, Manu Chao, John Fogerty, David… More »

Revolver Gets Political, Dave Grohl Performs “Songs About Love And Hope And Compassion”

Inspired by the race to the White House, the new issue of Revolver features politico-rock superfriends M. Shadows, Dave Havok, Serj Tankian, Randy Blythe, and Dave Grohl on the red-white-&-blue cover. A lot like this! (Hmm, let's hope the choice has better results this time.) Here's an excerpt from the "Hard Rock… More »

2008 Brit Awards Like 2008 Grammys, But With More Mika

Amy Winehouse and Rihanna performed, Foo Fighters and Kanye West won, and the show was "was largely free of surprises" according to AP. Sounds like the Grammys, but alas, we're talking about the Brit Awards. At least instead of will.i.am, they got Mark Ronson & Friends. Here's the Best British Male winner with his trusty… More »

Foo Fighters @ Madison Square Garden, NYC 2/19/08

Wow, in just a week Dave's led his Foos from outside the Grammys straight into the center of Madison Square Garden. Last night was their first performance in MSG over their 13-year tenure as a band. Crazy, no? The show was sponsored by Fuse, maybe because "Fuse" sorta rhymes with "Foos." They aired the… More »

Video Hangover: Foo Fighters – “Big Me”

Every week, we dig in the archives for videos that we find noteworthy, memorable, or just unbelievably stupid. And then, Jon McMillan breaks 'em down for you. This week: following a Foo-tastic Grammy performance with some vintage Foo-video. More »

Liveblogging The 2008 Grammys

Welcome to Stereogum's sarcastic play-by-play of the 50th Annual Grammy Awards. We're moments before showtime and Amy Winehouse has already won Best Pop Vocal Album, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, and a new set of teeth. Tonight promises an exciting look back at the last year in recorded pop music, including some interesting collaborations:… More »

Foo Fighters Offer Hammier “Long Road To Ruin” Video, Search For Grammy Orchestra

This hairy "Long Road To Ruin" alternate take lacks the earlier Soap version's Rashida Jones cameo, but there is a crowd of screaming girls. Fair enough. Nice swivel, Dave. As a bonus, it also gives you an idea of what it's like to be a Foo. That's right, those cello lessons might have bee… More »

New Foo Fighters Video (Feat. Rashida Jones) – “Long Road To Ruin”

Love it when Foo Fighters hit the costume department and have a laugh. Unlike "Learn To Fly," for instance, Dave Grohl (or, Davy Grolton) sticks to but one character in this '70s hospital soap opera send up within a sendup, but it's a good one with a great haircut, alotta tears, and the requisite… More »

Foo Fighters, Jon Bon Jovi Get Punched Just Before Eating (And Björk & Charles Barkley Do Iconoclasts)

This week's SNL got off to a rocky start when a cross-eyed and painful-to-watch Ritchie Sambora lost his next-to-only line during host Jon Bon Jovi's monologue (Sambora smiling blankly, mouthing "Oh shit, I lost it." To his credit, intended or not, his bumbling facial expression was sorta funny.) Didn't look like JBJ was pleased, mouthing… More »

Premature Evaluation: Foo Fighters – Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace (And Live @ Fillmore/Irving Plaza, NYC 9/20/07)

"How many of you have our new album?" growled Grohl in an apparent moment of clichéd, crowd-baiting rockstar banter. Some not-so-small fraction of the super-packed crowd at Irving Plaza last night roared back, continuing the standard exchange. "The album's not out 'til next week, you motherfuckers!" So much for the road well traveled, though… More »

Liveblogging The 2007 VMAs

You've been waiting patiently all weekend, so let's get this thing going. Welcome to this year's MTV Video Music Awards, this year featuring three whole awards dedicated to videos! We've been hypnotized by John Norris's amazing new wig, Kanye's plastic-looking facial hair, and Paris's wonky eye. But all that's behind us. Live blog begins ... More »
