Krist Novoselic Says The Best Band in the World Is…

He may be a little biased, but former Nirvana bass-man Krist Novoselic has crowned “the best band in the world.”

Novoselic recently supported his former bandmate Dave Grohl at a Foo Fighter’s show in Portland, Or and spammed (in a good way) twitter with videos, photo’s and quips from the peformance.

One tweet did stand out however: A video of what appears to be the band leaving the stage with the caption “The best band in the World!”.

Krist may be a little biased but we’re hard pressed to disagree with him.

Here’s the video:

Dave Grohl: Why Foo Rickrolled Westboro Baptist Church

After the exciting pre-show activity of rickrolling the Westboro Baptist Church at their Kansas City concert last week, Foo Fighter’s front man Dave Grohl wanted to clear a few things up.

During the concert at Sprint Center  Grohl said to the audience, “You can’t just sit there and do nothing, you got to go out there, and say what you wanna say, so we did . . . we figured, you know what, why don’t we just f**king RickRoll their ass? Cause nothing says love like a little Rick Astley in your life, you know what I’m saying?”

Just before beginning “My Hero” Grohl continued,”So I’m going to dedicate this song to all the people who go out and speak their mind, to stand up for what they think is right, because every time we got to stand up in this city in front of them, we do it because we feel like we’re standing up for what we think is right.”

Westboro Baptist Church Gets ‘Rickrolled’ By Foo Fighters

The Foo Fighters and Westboro Baptist Church have never played well together.

To be fair, Foo has tried to teach them to “Keep it Clean” in past.

This past weekend in Kansas City, MO, the Foo Fighters kicked off their concert by driving past the Westboro Baptist Church protest outside Sprint Center. Front man Dave Grohl and Foo sat in the back of a pick up truck blaring Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” while holding signs that said “You got Rick Rolled (again).”

Dave Grohl Admits He Has Social Anxiety

Foo Fighter‘s front man Dave Grohl recently admitted to having social anxiety about attending the upcoming Emmy Award Ceremony.

In a interview with Gold Derby, Grohl justified his nervousness saying, “It’s just going to be such a crazy night, I just can’t imagine. I think I’ll feel like that kid who is the new kid at school, the first day at school. I’ll probably just sit down, with my back up against the wall, just nervous, and waiting to see who is going to want to talk to me. I have a little bit of social anxiety. It might seem hard to imagine, but in rooms like that, I kind of clam up. I mean put me at the f**king Grammys, and I know everybody there, and I’ve got a bottle of whiskey in my hands the whole time, but we’ll see what happens.”

The Foo Fighters have their Sonic Highways album nominated for Outstanding Informational Series, Outstanding Directing, Outstanding Sound Mixing and Outstanding Sound Editing.

Fingers crossed that they win! Check out the interview with Gold Derby  below.

Crying Fan Sings “My Hero” With Dave Grohl

 

Sunday Night at the Foo Fighter’s show in Denver, Colorado, Dave Grohl stopped in the middle of “My Hero” and to call out a crying fan.

“Don’t cry motherf—–, I know you’re drunk, don’t cry,” Grohl said to his drunk, crying fan Anthony. “Are you crying right now? You’re f—ing crying aren’t you? I love you man, look at you, holy s—. You know what, f— that speech I was just going to make, I’m singing this s— to you right now. I’m gonna sing this f—— song right in your face, man to man, prison style, I’m going man to man. Me and you, I want some real tears, you better sing it with me. Don’t make me cry, because I promised I wouldn’t do this.”

Grohl insisted Anthony move up to the front row of the audience but changed his mind and made him come on to the stage. After a big hug, Anthony stood beside Grohl, who was sitting on a stool because of a broken leg.  Grohl got up saying, “I’m gonna stand up with my broken leg and sing this f—— song to your drunk ass right now.”

Anthony sat and looked up at Grohl as they both sang “My Hero” together. At the end of the song, Grohl told his starstruck fan to “get the f— off my stage” and hugged him again. Watch the video above.
