But it's you I fell into  
I have serious issues with The Foo Fighters, thanks to John Safran, but nevertheless this music video is the perfect accompaniment for this two minute, candy-sweet pop ditty. And it's quite the antidote to the previous video I posted.



Oh man, how big a candidate for Hair Wars is Dave Grohl?

Get thee a copy of John Safran's Music Jamboree.

Until such time as you do that, however, there's a paragraph on it in their Wikipedia entry. Do a text search for "AIDS" to find the appropriate bit.

Re: Weird
Look, I agree, and to stop me repeating myself have a look at my reply to escarpe. Although, I think you're being a little pessimistic, I don't think too many bands have quite the level of lunacy of AIDS deniers. And I'm sure many champion causes that I do believe in.

Sex and Death
This is one of those issues that it's pretty much taboo.
It has so many conatations of pain and suffering and righly so, AIDS is something we are all frightned of and something that has by this stage in our lives probably killed someone we know.
I'm copping out and not taking sides in the issue but I will say that I know two doctors and one Geneticist who take this seriously and would not prescribe anti-aids drugs to someone who showed positivly for the Virus.
The Genetisist I know acutally did her PHD on this subject.
It sounds like a bunch of American crazy people running around with their head in the sand and I'll admit that the way they project themselves is probably inaporpriate but there is research to suggest that they are right.
Of course there is evidence to suggest that they are wrong too so?
All I'll say in defence of the Foo Fighers is that they are just a band, they have no medical qualifications and do not pretend to, anyone who takes medical advice from a musician rather than a doctor deserves do be taught a lesson. But then I'm a pragmatic bastard.

Re: Sex and Death
This group claims that AIDS is not caused by HIV. They are total loonies, end of story.

But, yes, I don't really think The Foo Fighters are actually doing a great deal of harm to anyone. And, as far as I'm concerned their politics, as long as it doesn't actually get mentioned in song, has nothing to do with my enjoyment of their music.

Like, I'm still going to watch, and love, My Name Is Earl, even though Jason Lee is a loony Scientologist.
