The Foo Fighters, one of rock’s premier 90’s alternative institutions have decided to switch things up by releasing a horror-comedy-themed movie entitled Studio 666. While band films are historically nothing new – with movies featuring legendary acts such as The Beatles and KISS coming long before this project, fans should see Studio 666 as a bloody love letter to the genre and toward the band itself – even it does contain shockers and surprises that long time Foo Fighters fans won’t see coming. The band are set to perform with these fellow 90’s icons.
However, during a recent interview on the Howard Stern Show, the “King of All Media” offered mild criticism of the film questioning whether or not making such a movie would hurt the long-term legacy of the Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl would categorically shut down such a notion. Credit to HowardStern.com for the below.
“Absolutely not,” Grohl responded. “You look at the 26 years of those fucking videos we’ve been making … If any band was gonna do this, it was gonna be us.”
Grohl would then continue by saying the following:
“I think people appreciate us for that side of what we’re going to do. It’s like, we make records, we take those really fucking seriously. We go out and we play shows, we take that really fucking seriously,” he continued. “We want to make great songs. We want to be the best live band in the world. Everything outside of that, it’s like, ‘C’mon, are we gonna try and look like this cool, handsome rock band?’ Fuck that … Why not do it?”
Studio 666 hits movie theatres everywhere on February 25th. The Foo Fighters are currently embarking on a series of 2022 North American tour dates. This tour will take place throughout the majority of the year until August 20th where they will conclude on October 7th, in Bend, Oregon at the Hayden Homes Amphitheater.
