If there’s one thing that Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters dislike, it’s Coldplay. If there’s two things that the Foo Fighters dislike, it’s Republicans who use their music on the campaign trail. Presidential hopeful/Republican Senator John McCain has been using the band’s “My Hero” on his campaign.

The Denver Post sat down with Taylor Hawkins for a little interview and preview of the Foo Fighters shows at Red Rocks which ended up getting postponed because Dave Grohl hurt his vocals screaming about his rider (Just Kidding. He really was sick though). Taylor says that the first album is his favorite because it was “simple and fun” and he was a fan of the band back then. He says even though the songwriting’s progressed (partially because Dave can …
