The Foo Fighters Do The Wrong Thing

‘It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour. In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now. There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.’ That’s the Foo Fighters showing their true colors: yellow.

Fuck the Foo Fighters. Yes, U2 cancelled a gig tonight in Paris, and Coldplay cancelled a gig tonight to be streamed on Tidal, but Foo Fighters cancelled a European tour with concerts in Italy and Spain.

These lily livered pussies should have their asses kicked. When the kids in Europe could use them more than ever, they bravely turned around and fled. I hate these guys on so many levels for this, they are a disgrace to rock and roll and they are a disgrace to the USA, and they are disgrace to themselves.

What sort of cowardice is this?

Do Foo Fighters really think Europe will come to a standstill over this, or, to be even more blunt, that Spain will have a curfew because of a terrorist attack in France?

And don’t say “who is to judge?” I am to judge and I am judging and I judge Dave Grohl to be repulsive for this terrible decision. Shame on him but not surprise on him.

I promise you, and I know, that if I was Grohl, I would have played Monday in Paris, but at least that I get. I see no reason to cancel the rest of France. What you do in the face of terrorism is go on as normal. But say, France, borders closed, mourning etc. But Spain and Italy?

Imagine what it would have meant to Paris if FF had played on Paris, imagine what a morale builder in the face of death and hatred to stand up and be counted. It would have been Grohl’s finest moment. As rock historian Bill Holdship put it: ” ISIS may soon be the only people Dave hasn’t jammed with.”

It is good for the youth of the world to know that when they needed their heroes most, they ran away. They should change their names to the Foo Chickenshits. PS they also suck.

    Kind of harsh on the band. It’s not up to Grohl to bring up the morale of France. instead of going on a rampage against the band, direct your concern towards those who were responsible for the attacks and ask for them to be held accountable. Blaming the band for not going into this area is the stupidest thing I have read in a while…

    People with deeply held, passionate, opinions about things that are of no importance whatsoever are usually either frauds, zealots or psychopaths. Sometimes all three.

    You’ve succeeded in getting people to a website no one has ever heard of.
    Strong clickbait to exploit a situation you have no ideas the intracacies of.
    I doubt you’ll ever be in position to determine the best decision for the hundreds plus people involved in something as a big as traveling rock show.
