News on Foo Fighters, Montgomery Gentry, Miranda Lambert
The Foo Fighters will overtake MTV2 for a 24-hour block beginning June 11 at 12 p.m. ET, during which they will play favorite videos, perform tracks from the new RCA album "In Your Honor" and welcome guests to the set. The last time MTV2 gave over control of its programming was in Sept. 2002, when Courtney Love ran the station for a now-infamous 24-hour block.
As previously reported, "In Your Honor" is due June 14 via RCA and contains one disc each of rock and acoustic tracks. First single "Best of You" is No. 4 this week on Billboard's Modern Rock chart.
