Foo Fighters have gone and done it again, making a funny video for one of their new songs. Interestingly enough, the first single is supposed to be a song called "Rope." So I'm guessing that this was a quick, fun video they did for a song that probably won't be a big radio hit. Kind of a throw out to the fans of their really hard, fast stuff. The video is a throwback too, reminding me of watching the early days of MTV and the cheesy videos that were around. In fact, it looks like they literally recorded this video with a camcorder direct to VHS.
Check it out here, then continue reading below.
I went around town once with a camcorder and my daughter's help and recorded a video too. It's not funny. It's not a throwback. I don't have a limo. I have a Ford Focus. I stink...
I hate Dave Grohl.
There’s been some news in the Foo Fighters camp over the last ten days. They have played two surprise gigs in the Los Angeles area and they have announced the date for the album release, which is (drum roll please)... April 12, 2011 (oh, no...). I’ve gottalotta work to do in order to catch up and release our record first. But I AM making progress, ladies and gentlemen. Honest to goodness progress. In fact I finished up another song last night. Ah, it feels good to check something off the list. And I do plan on having something for you dear readers on or before that date.
Now, I don’t live in the Los Angeles area, so there is no way I can make or even attempt to make any of these “surprise” Foo Fighters gigs. Dave tweets something tantalizing like, “are you guys ready?” and you know something’s coming up. And then sure enough, way cool gig in a small club somewhere, where you could have seen the Foo Fighters for $20, up close and personal.
Oh, you couldn’t make it either? Yeah, too bad. Blame Dave, not me. So, I guess we’ll have to settle for the next best thing: YouTube bootleg videos from one of the shows itself that I happened upon. Yes, these are the new songs from the as yet untitled new album that is coming out on April 12th of this year. So now you can hate Dave Grohl and love me.
Well, if you've always wanted to direct a Foo Fighters video here's your chance. The Foo Fighters (and Dave Grohl) are once again trying to convince the world how cool they are by giving the opportunity to direct their new video to a fan. Apparently there will be 11 winners (one for each song on the album?).
Notice that even a throw away song they came up with for a contest video is still catchy as all get out. I hate that so much.
