The Foo Fighters rolled their truckstop tour through Kansas City, Missouri yesterday and Westboro Baptist decided to stage one of their ridiculous protests about how God hates everyone except them. The band decided to counter protest the right wing nutjobs and composed "an ode to same-sex loving"

When frontman Dave Grohl growls "I've got a hankering for something, think I'm in the mood for some hot man-muffins," I raised my hand until Jerame asked me what the hell I was doing sitting on the couch with one arm in the air. Must have been the beard...

I remember reading an interview with Grohl a few years ago where he credited the B-52s as being a 'seminal' influence on his music life. Watching the 52s on SNL as a young kid, he was taken by their whole approach - style, sound, dance, etc...
I don't recall the exact quote, but he described seeing this band, totally gay, (well, they do have one hetero member), playing this incredible music.
He has long credited the B-52s as being one of the reasons he is a musician now.
Just to add - with Pat Smear back in the band I'm reminded that Smear's first band (the Germs) had a (closeted) lead singer in Darby Crash.

Never thought I'd live to hear a country song like this ...

Thank you, Foo Fighters!

I do they invite me to their next truck-stop shower ...
