Footos: The Fresh Fighter

Foo-syical Graffiti

Foo Fighters is probably one of Matt’s and my favorite current rock bands.  It’s hard to believe they’ve been around more than 10 years, and are the product of Dave Grohl wanting to make music after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994.  One must wonder whether Nirvana would have had the success that Foo Fighters is enjoying now if Kurt had decided to stay with us.  But that’s neither here nor there.

Due to their large body of work, and the fact that we both like them so much, Foo Fighters have been involved in many a songspeak, so I’m sure this will be the first post of many to feature them.

One of the great things about Foo Fighters is their music videos. They’ve always had a knack for making unique, memorable, and funny videos. One of their first (and still one of my favorites) was their video for Big Me off of their self-titled debut album. The video was basically a parody of the Mentos Mints commercials that enjoyed popularity in the early 90’s. The main spots being parodied are the parallel-parking-dilemma ad and the crossing-the-street-conundrum ad. The best part about the Foo Fighters video are the exaggerated facial expressions and reactions (which really aren’t that far off from the real commercials now that I’ve rewatched them).

  1. Are the Foo Fighters:
    1. People who Fight Foos – Like the Ghostbusters are people who bust ghosts?
    2. Foos who Fight – Just like Alien Invaders are Aliens who are Invading?
    3. People who Fight using the Foo martial arts style – Just like Kung Fu fighters fight using Kung Fu?

  2. Keep how you feel in check but be sure that you simply consider the feelings of employees. Most students cannot easily complete their essay writing assignments due on the lack of focus about the task itself.
