Foo Fighters Mock "Emo" Bands

From Kerrang.com - The Foo Fighters have apparently penned a song making fun of My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco et al for their upcoming ´Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace´ album.

The track in question is ´Cheer Up Boys (Your Make-Up Is Running)´. Frontman Dave Grohl told MTV:

"I have a funny relationship with emo. I´m from Washington D.C., and in the mid-´80s, the hardcore scene changed from what it was - Bad Brains and Minor Threat and the Dead Kennedys and MDC - to a bunch of new bands like Rites of Spring and Embrace. Everyone started labelling it ´emo-core´. I´d never heard anything like it, and it was a really emotional experience. But in D.C., we all hated that ´emo-core´ tag."

´Echoes, Silence, Patience And Grace´ will be released on September 24 through Sony BMG.

It ain´t easy being in My Chemical Romance, first Marilyn Manson accused them for stealing his show and now Dave Grohl wants to join the "hate-emo" parade. With all do respect Grohl, I love The Foo´s but leave MCR alone - they have at least evolved the emo genre with The Black Parade.

Did you know that?

Dave Grohl has made the top of the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart with a record four different bands: Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and Nine Inch Nails.
