‘Never lose faith in real rock and roll music’

Foo Fighters have won the award for Best Rock video for “Walk” at MTVs VMAs.

“We’d like to thank Sam Jones, the director; Joel Schumacher, the director of ‘Falling Down,’ which was the movie we based the video on; and all our friends at MTV,” Grohl said during his acceptance speech. “I just want to say: Never lose faith in real rock and roll music, you know what I mean? Never lose faith in that. You might have to look a little harder, but it’s always going to be there.”

Ain’t that the way it always start? It does October 5th.

Foo Fighters are planning to release their new single ‘Arlandria’ on October 5th.  It will be the 3rd Single taken from the number one album ‘Wasting Light’.

Arlandria is a neighborhood located in the north-eastern portion of Alexandria, virginia (USA).  “Arlandria is where my house was when I moved back to Virginia,” Grohl said in an interview on MTV’s website. “And like when Nirvana was super popular and things got really crazy, if it got too crazy, I’d go back to Virginia and just hang out with my buddies that I’d known since I was five … so I always go back to Virginia when things get too out of control, so it’s really about me hiding away from everybody.”
