If you pay attention to music news (or watch the Oscars), you may have noticed that during the Academy Awards, Dave Grohl did a wonderful rendition of the Beatles’ ‘Blackbird’. For the record, I am a big Beatles fan and usually hate all covers of their song. Not this one.
WATCH THE PERFORMANCE HERE: Dave Grohl ‘Blackbird’
The performance caused some stir. Rumors quickly hit the internet about how the band was breaking up and that Dave was going solo. It didn’t take long for every website be carrying the demise of the Foo Fighters after 20+ years of rocking. Not so fast, says the Fighters’ front man. However, he didn’t actually say that. Instead, they put out this brilliant video. This is how viral is done. A little popularity mixed with humor and some cutting edge content and you have yourself over 5 million views (as of this writing).
I guess it helps a little if you were the drummer for Nirvana and sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
This video is NSFW.
