This upcoming weekend’s release of Studio 666 starring the Foo Fighters as themselves may seem a bit odd but the band has frequently paid homage to movies and pop culture in their music videos, including 2002’s “The One”. Coming from the soundtrack for the Jack Black/Colin Hanks movie Orange County, the video starts with a great bit of Dave Grohl performing an acting monologue of a scene from the movie but the rest of the video is actually an homage to the movie/TV series Fame, as the members of Foo Fighters participate in various classes in a performing arts school. While Dave studies acting, Taylor Hawkins takes violin, Nate Mendel takes a mime class and Chris Shiflett does ballet. The song reached #20 on the Mainstream Rock Billboard chart and #14 on the Alternative Airplay charts and the making of the video was a part of MTV’s series”Making the Video” during that show’s 8th season. Check out the video below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
