Foo Fighters Mock Fans' Worst Fears with Hilarious 'Band Announcement' Video: Watch
Grohl and his fellow Foo Fighters have masterfully trolled us all with a 24-hour tease of an “official band statement" and the big reveal which caps-off days of frenzied social media chatter about a possible band implosion.
The Foos have now shared a seven-minute-long video in which Grohl plays the part of a frontman-turned-douche who believes the hype surrounding his solo Grammys performance and sets forth on his new career path. The rocker tries his hand at EDM, and cranks out a cheesy ballad: “I want to be free, free to be… me. Can’t you see, now it’s just me/And now, I’m free, to be me, just me. Not those other three, or four. Or how many more.”
