Video: Foo Fighters Troll The Internet, Not Breaking Up After All

foofighters not breaking up video dave grohl ghostcultmag

Foo Fighters played a practical joke on their fans and the music press by posting their major announcement, a video message to fans. Originally thought to be a notice of the band going on hiatus or breaking up, every major music website (including ours) reported the news earlier today with two very prominent music and entertainment sites confirming the news only hours ago. The band is apparently not breaking up, but no further information was released either. The hilarious video pokes fun at frontman Dave Grohl’s high-profile, and also has producer Butch Vig and singer Nick Lachey appear too. You can watch the video at this link or below:
