Foo Fighters Are Not Breaking Up

By Laura Curry

GROHLFans of the Foo Fighters no longer have to worry about the band breaking up!

The Foo Fighters just put out an “Official Band Announcement” in the form of a video. The pseudo documentary disproves rumors about the band breaking up. It features Dave Grohl and producer Butch Vig discussing Grohl going solo. They agree that he should explore the music of the new generation: electronica.

While Grohl is experimenting with a keyboard and various improbable singing styles, the rest of the band vows to “make Foo Fighters great again,” and starts considering replacements for Grohl. This involves discussing the pros and cons of the more plausible replacements such as Sammy Hagar, Chris Cornell and Billy Corgan, to the far-fetched options of Phil Collins, Nick Lachey and even Diplo.

In the middle of this discussion, Nick Lachey runs in, ready to join them for a “test-run” of “Everlong.” While Lachey is over-emphasizing the lyrics in an acoustic version of this classic Foo Fighters song, the screen fades to black and we finally see the announcement: “For the millionth time, we’re not breaking up. And nobody’s going fucking solo!”

If you need to “see it to believe it,” feel free to watch the video below.

She is a frequent concert-goer, whether they’re happening in New Brunswick basements, Asbury Park venues, concert halls in NYC and anywhere in between. Alternative rock is her go-to genre (i.e. Kings of Leon, Cage the Elephant, Foals, The Maine and lots more). When she isn’t writing for The Pop Break, she works at the North Brunswick Public Library, which offers plenty of Fantasy/Adventure novels to quench her love of reading. Additionally, she takes on creative projects from dream catchers and scrapbooks to paintings and jewelry making. She’s always happy to talk about her furry Maine Coon cat Austen and his knack for playing fetch and hide and seek. Just try not to ask about her next career move, because trust me, she’s working on it.
