Keep being awesome, Foo Fighters
I never did write-up last July 4′s concert at RFK. It was as cool as you heard it was.
MAY 21 UPDATE: The video and soundtrack are back! Get Valerie Camillo a fainting couch, there here is go-go in it!
I’d replace “I Fought the Law” with Danny Gatton’s “Fingers on Fire” though.
UPDATE: YouTube turned off the sound due to a copyright infringement in the 18 hours since I discovered this video that had been up for almost 2 months. You’ll just have to listen your vinyl copy or well, go here.
Yesterday, I stumbled on some Washington Nationals-related bloopers on youtube, part of a series for all MLB teams. It starts off with John Popper playing “God Bless America” on his harmonica (remember that?) while somebody tries to add eye drops while wearing sunglasses and is followed by President Obama’s eephus pitch to native Washingtonian John Phillip Sousa‘s “Stars & Stripes Forever,” so that gives you a pretty good idea of what we’re in for with this thing.
Later in the video, Experience Unlimited takes over with “Da Butt” because reasons. The last is The Clash with “I Fought the Law” the only non-DC music in the whole video. You have to respect the local flavor of the video creator.
Wacky plays, broken/flaming stadium equipment, Pierogi destruction, John Wall and an insurrection against the President’s Race are all included. Bryce Harper is
well often represented. One really, glaring omission though:
But hey, it’s
got had “Da Butt.”
Looking back over Sunday night Twitter feed, one of the themes that emerged was “we’re old!” That’s because the MTV Video Music Awards was on. But not getting the 2014 VMAs is a feature, not a bug, right?
On the other hand, after a bike ride on Sunday morning, I turned on the car and I heard this song:
It wasn’t until the song was over that I realized it was on BIG 100.3, the classic rock station.
It may have been amusing to get Kurt Cobain’s take on that, but he’s been gone for 20 years. I wonder what greatest Arlandrian alive, Dave Grohl thinks. Of course, Foo Fighters was CLASSIC from the moment the album dropped on July 4, 1995.
Now that the bandage has been ripped off, I’m sure we can look forward to hearing “The Sweater Song,” “Corduroy” and dread hearing anything by Bush or Live. Man those two bands were terrible and ubiquitous.
Though if they throw this in every now and then, I might be worth it:
