FOO FIGHTERS TELL JOHN MCCAIN TO F*CK OFF
According to The Huffington Post, Dave Grohl and company are not pleased that McCain has been using the Foo Fighters anthem “My Hero” for his campaign. A statement from the band reads as follows:
“The saddest thing about this is that `My Hero’ was written as a celebration of the common man and his extraordinary potential. To have it appropriated without our knowledge and used in a manner that perverts the original sentiment of the lyric just tarnishes the song.”
The band allegedly didn’t learn about McCain’s use of the song until they read about it in news reports.
So I guess the Foo Fighters won’t be touring with Sammy Hagar anytime soon, eh?
