Foo News: Foo Fighters concert rebroadcast this Saturday on Austin City Limits (video), listen to the Deadmau5 remix of “Rope”, Dave Grohl talks tour with Motorhead (video)
Renowned mixed Deadmau5 has put together a remix of the Foo Fighters new single "Rope". The regrind keeps frontman Dave Grohl’s vocal mostly intact, but the song’s reimagining is the type of pure club music bliss that begs to be a bonus track on a vintage CD single.
The song’s hook becomes the perfect hand waving, sweaty dance floor anthem, and the pulsating beat is an ecstasy trip on tape.
Also, The Foo Fighters concert from September 29, 2008 will be rebroadcast this Saturday night on "Austin City Limits". Check your local PBS listings for airtimes.
