Grohl Sticks Up For Reznor As Foos Ready New Release
June 10, 2005


Foo Fighters

The Foo Fighters were tapped to take Nine Inch Nails' place at this past week's MTV Movie Awards, after the network and Trent Reznor could not agree on a political protest the band wanted to make on stage. Grohl, who drums on much of NIN's With Teeth, stuck up for Reznor at the event, telling Rolling Stone, "I respect Trent a lot musically and otherwise." He continued, "I kind of feel like we're doing the same thing, but without the banner. If you listen to the lyrics of 'Best Of You,' you can read into that, and it says just as much as a picture of the president. I figured we'll do it musically instead."

Fans can already hear In Your Honor, since the Foo Fighters are the latest in an ever-growing list of groups (Black Eyed Peas, Weezer, Audioslave) who are streaming their albums online at MySpace.com in advance of the release date. And starting Tuesday, Real NetworksRhapsody service will be streaming all five of the band's albums for their users.

You can certainly get your fill of Foo this weekend, since the band will be taking over MTV2 for 24 hours straight, beginning tomorrow (June 11) at noon. According to RockOnTV, fans can expect the band members to pick their "guilty pleasure videos," take on VJs in a battle of '80s trivia, give away a date with one of their roadies and of course, perform live.

On Monday, the night before the album's release, the Foos will be the stars of an FMQB Productions one-hour interview special, which will be heard on stations around the country. More information can be found here.
