Foo Fighters reportedly ruffled some feathers in Belfast, Northern Ireland earlier this month due to the volume of their performance. The rockers hit the stage at the Tennent's Vital festival in Belfast's Osborne Park and hundreds of nearby residents lodged noise complaints during the event.
All together 120 citizens reportedly filed complaints with the Belfast City Council while another 20 called the police. The band appears unfazed by the complaints, however, offering a glib response via Facebook.
Dave Grohl and company invoked none other than rock gods AC/DC:
"A wise man once said . . . Rock and Roll ain't noise pollution. Rock and Roll ain't gonna die."
In other news, Foo Fighters are one of the many bands to be featured in the latest iteration of the Rock Band franchise, Rock Band Blitz. Harmonix, the game's creator, says PlayStation users should expect the release on August 28, while Xbox users should expect it the following day.
