His band may be called the Foo Fighters, but Dave Grohl wants the world to know that said nomenclature does not serve as carte blanche for people to get their conflict on during his concerts. During the Foos’ Monday night show in London, he stopped mid-song to eject someone who was causing a ruckus in the crowd: “You don’t come to my show and fight, you come to my show and fucking dance, you asshole!” he shouted as the guy was shamed/escorted out. I think that’d be a pretty good t-shirt slogan! Also, how lousy do you have to feel after being kicked out of a free show by virtue of nothing more than your ragey ways? Here’s hoping the guy went home and looked up the origins of the Foos’ name to alleviate his confusion over the night’s purpose.
