Foo Fighters Reveal What Could Cause Breakup


Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl revealed why the band have never attempted to write a Christmas song in a new interview with Zane Low on Apple Music. Grohl said if the Foo Fighters released a Christmas song, it would probably mean they would be breaking up.

Grohl said, “But trying to write a new Christmas song, it’s kind of tricky. Because it’s like, you’re so used to the classics. You’re so used to being crotchety.I think we’ve been asked to do it, but I wouldn’t even know what to say.

Like, ‘I took mushrooms with the teachers from my school. I took a bunch of mushrooms in my house with my mom.’ I don’t really think it’d work. No, we’ve never even tried. I don’t know if people would want us to do that. I’m not sure. Maybe the day that we decide we don’t want to do this anymore, we make a Christmas song and then we ride off into the sunset, yeah.”

Guitarist Pat Smear added, “I don’t think it’s weird. Christmas music is my favorite part of Christmas. As soon as they start playing it, I get very excited. I love it.”

Late Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland was a huge Christmas music lover, releasing The Most Wonderful Time of the Year in 2011. Billy Corgan has discussed wanting to release a Smashing Pumpkins Christmas album in the last couple of years, but he has postponed those plans due to the band’s busy schedule.
